Cardinals' John Brown: Limited Thursday

Brown (illness) was limited in Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

According to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com, Brown has again exhibited signs of his sickle-cell trait, including hamstring cramps that knocked him from Sunday's loss in Atlanta and a tight hamstring while running prior to practice Wednesday. The Cardinals will thus exercise a cautious approach with Brown, hence the limited session Thursday following Wednesday's DNP. With the potential for spontaneous episodes, it's difficult to place trust in the third-year wideout, especially due to his underwhelming line (31 receptions for 399 yards and one touchdown) through 10 games.
