Quiet in return

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-04

Brown failed to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 22-17 win over Denver in Week 13.

Brown returned from a two-week absence due to a knee injury and played 55 snaps (81 percent), tied with Nico Collins for most at wideout. Prior to the injury, Brown was crucial in wins over Tampa Bay and Cincinnati, when he caught 13 of 14 targets for 325 yards and a touchdown. The Texans will need a return to that form after Tank Dell suffered a season-ending leg injury Sunday. Brown is not a direct replacement for Dell's field-stretching ability, but he's expected to get more balls thrown his way as a result of the injury. Robert Woods and John Metchie will also get chances.

Returning from two-game absence

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-03

Brown (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Despite missing the Texans' final Week 13 practice Friday and being limited for sessions Wednesday and Thursday, Brown demonstrated enough progress in his recovery from a bruised knee to gain clearance to play Sunday. He'll be back in action after a two-game absence, looking to build on his strong showing over his previous three outings, when he accrued a 16-382-1 receiving line on 19 targets. Brown took on 70-plus percent snap shares in each of those contests, though now that all of Nico Collins, Robert Woods and Tank Dell are healthy, Brown may not be guaranteed a full-time role in three-wide sets.

Should play versus Denver

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-02

Brown (knee) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Broncos, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Brown is dealing with a knee contusion that has sidelined him for the past two games, but he was able to log back-to-back limited practices before sitting out Friday's session. Barring any setbacks during pregame warmups, it's expected that the 27-year-old will return to action Week 13, per Wilson. In the two games prior to his absence, Brown logged 13 receptions (on 14 targets) for 325 yards and a touchdown.

Questionable for Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-01

Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos after missing practice Friday.

Brown, who has been sidelined for two straight contests, logged limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday before being downgraded to no activity Friday. The wideout's status for this weekend's contest thus is cloudy, though fortunately for those interested in utilizing either Brown or Tank Dell (calf, questionable) in Week 13 fantasy lineups, the Texans kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Still limited Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-30

Brown (knee) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday.

Brown has missed two straight games, but consecutive limited practices to begin Week 13 prep improve the wideout's chances of returning to action Sunday against the Broncos. Friday's injury report will clarify whether Brown heads into the weekend with an injury designation or is cleared to face Denver. Before sitting out a win over Arizona and a loss to Jacksonville over the past two weeks, Brown had generated a 16-382-1 receiving line on 19 targets in three outings following Houston's Week 7 bye.

Limited in return to practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-29

Brown (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Brown, who has missed two straight games due to a knee contusion, didn't practice at all last week, so the wideout's return to the field, even in a limited capacity Wednesday, has him trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos. If Brown is able to play this weekend, he figures to have Nico Collins, Tank Dell (calf) -- if available -- and Robert Woods to compete with for Week 13 WR targets.

Back at practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-29

Brown (knee) was spotted at practice Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Brown, who Wilson indicates is dealing with a knee contusion, has missed two straight games, but his presence at practice Wednesday offers hope that the wideout could return to action Sunday against the Broncos. The Texans' upcoming injury report is slated to reveal Brown's official participation level.

Ruled out this week

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-24

Brown (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Brown, who wasn't able to practice this week, will thus target a potential return to action Dec. 3 against the Broncos. In his continued absence this weekend, Nico Collins, Tank Dell and Robert Woods are slated to headline the Texans' wideout corps.

Still not practicing

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-24

Brown (knee) wasn't spotted at practice Friday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Brown didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday, so his continued absence Friday suggests that he could be ruled of for Week 12 action later Friday. If that's the case, Nico Collins, Tank Dell and Robert Woods would lead the Texans' wideout corps Sunday against the Jaguars.
