Brown is expected to competed with Zachary Orr for the starting job vacated by Daryl Smith, The Baltimore Sun reports. A 2013 second-round selection, Brown has mostly worked on special teams thus far, recording just 17 tackles in 30 career games, with 15 of those tackles coming in his rookie year. Zachary Orr, a 2014 undrafted free agent, mostly worked ahead of Brown throughout the offseason program, after serving as the top backup to C.J. Mosley and Daryl Smith last year. Orr is the clear favorite to start Week 1, but Brown still has time to make a push during training camp.
Linebacker Arthur Brown has had a disappointing two years in the NFL since being drafted as a possible replacement for Ravens legend Ray Lewis, but he is hoping that getting bigger will help him make an impact, per the Baltimore Sun. Brown played in just four games last season and made zero tackles. In the offseason, Brown bulked up to 242 pounds in the hopes of seeing more playing time. "I'm getting bigger," Brown said. "I put on some weight and I'm maintaining it right now. I do feel good moving around. It's about keeping it on." Brown will have to first start on special teams since he is third on the Ravens depth chart at inside linebacker. That's how I need to make it on the field is in that phase of the game," he said.
The Ravens have placed linebacker Arthur Brown on injured reserve with a thigh injury to make way for defensive lineman Haloti Ngata to be placed on the active roster. Brown was only able to play in four games this season and did not record a tackle. Other than Brown, the Ravens have listed tackle Eugne Monroe (ankle) and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (foot and ankle) as out for Saturday's wild card game against the Steelers. Monroe has not played since Week 16 against the Texans when he injured his ankle. Defensive end Chris Canty is considered probable. The Ravens are currently 3-point underdogs against Pittsburgh Saturday.
The Ravens listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's game against the Texans: Wide receiver Michael Campanaro, cornerback Chris Greenwood, linebacker Arthur Brown, defensive tackle Terrence Cody, guard Gino Gradkowski, offensive lineman Ryan Jensen and defensive tackle Casey Walker. Defensive lineman Chris Canty (ankle) was listed as questionable, but is active for the game. Canty has not been able to practice all week. The Ravens are 6 1/2-point favorites.
The Ravens ruled the following players inactive for Sunday's clash with the Jaguars: wideout Michael Campanaro, cornerback Antoine Cason, running back Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot), linebacker Arthur Brown, defensive tackle Terrence Cody, guard Gino Gradkowski and defensive end DeAngelo Tyson.
