Brown (illness) will remain with the Browns after the team placed a contract tender on the exclusive rights free agent.
Analysis: The 25-year-old had a quiet role for the Browns in 2019, suiting up in just nine games, and he accumulated two catches for 27 yards. With the team signing Austin Hooper to the richest contract for a tight end in the league Monday, Brown will likely assume a depth or blocking role heading into the 2020 season.
Brown (illness) is inactive Week 17 against Cincinnati.
Analysis: Brown was a late addition to Friday's injury report due to illness, and that will be at least one of the factors keeping him off the active roster for the sixth consecutive week. Fellow tight end Ricky Seals-Jones overcame an illness of his own to suit up this week, while David Njoku is back on the roster as well after being a healthy scratch in consecutive weeks.
Brown is questionable for Sunday's divisional contest against the Bengals due to an illness, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Analysis: Brown was added to Friday's injury report as a non-participant. With Ricky Seals-Jones (illness) also listed as questionable, Brown could be in line for a slight uptick in offensive snaps if cleared to suit up for Sunday's season finale.
Brown started at tight end and caught his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 32-28 loss to the Seahawks.
Analysis: Brown took over the starting job from Demetrius Harris, who had been the primary fill-in for the injured David Njoku (wrist) but was losing playing time to Brown and Ricky Seals-Jones. The catch was just Brown's second on three targets. Since Njoku' injury, Seals-Jones, who scored his second touchdown of the season Sunday, has the target leader at the position, despite taking few snaps than Brown of Harris.
Brown started at tight end, caught is lone target for 18 yards, and played a season-high 33 snaps in Sunday's 40-25 win over the Ravens in Week 4.
Analysis: The Browns are still adjusting to live without David Njoku (wrist), but trends are quickly forming. Brown (Week 4) and Demetrius Harris (Week 3) have started in place of Njoku and dominated the playing time, but when quarterback Baker Mayfield throws to the position, more often than not it's Ricky Seals-Jones on the receiving end. Seals-Jones gobbled up three of the four tight end targets against the Ravens and leads the healthy tight ends with five targets in 30 overall snaps while Brown (two targets, 67 snaps) and Harris (four, 178) are used primarily has blockers.
Brown (shoulder) has been placed on injured reserve, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Analysis: Brown's designation comes in conjunction with the return of cornerback Terrance Mitchell, who is expected to be placed on the 53-man roster following an October surgery to mend his broken wrist. Brown will finish his rookie season having played 39 snaps (13 offensive) across two games.
Brown is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Panthers with a shoulder injury, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Analysis: Brown was added to the injury report Friday as a limited practice participant with the shoulder issue. The 24-year-old has been on the roster since being promoted from the practice squad in late Octboer, though he has yet to be active on gameday.
Brown was signed to the active roster Tuesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Analysis: Cleveland had an extra roster spot lying around after dealing Carlos Hyde to the Jaguars last week. Brown checks in as the fifth tight end on the active roster and will likely be contained to a role on special teams.
Brown was waived by the Raiders on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Analysis: Brown failed to make the 53-man roster as the Raiders elected to keep Jared Cook, Lee Smith and Derek Carrier at tight end. The University of Oregon product played 39 offensive snaps in two games with Oakland as a rookie in 2017.
