The Broncos placed Brown (undisclosed) on injured reserve Saturday. The details surrounding Brown's injury haven't been disclosed. The towering wideout previously spent training camp with the Broncos, and while he impressed in his limited time, was ultimately waived due to a back injury prior to the season opener. He then resurfaced in Denver weeks ago, but never made any sort of on-field contribution. His release allowed the team to add more depth at linebacker with Brandon Marshall (hamstring) on the shelf.
Brown re-signed with the Broncos on a two-year contract Monday, The Denver Post report. Brown was with the Broncos ahead of training camp, but was waived due to a back injury. Now, he'll once again reunite with coach Gary Kubiak, who was Brown's offensive coordinator in 2014 when both belonged to the Ravens. In 38 career games, the Georgia product recorded 87 receptions for 891 yards and seven scores.
Brown (back) was designated as waived/injured by the Broncos on Thursday, NFL Network's James Palmer reports. Brown suffered a setback with his back injury Wednesday, an issue that placed him on IR in 2015 as a member of the Ravens. His 2016 season is in jeopardy at this point, while he was a bit of a longshot to make the Broncos' roster given his nagging back injury.
Brown left Wednesday's practice with a back issue, ABC's Troy Renck reports. Brown has dealt with a nagging back issue since the end of 2015. The injury landed him on IR last season with the Ravens, and was also the reason for his release from Baltimore in May. An MRI is likely in store for Brown in the near future, and the result of which may ultimately decide his immediate future in Denver.
The Broncos signed Brown to a one-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Brown was likely brought in to provide a bit of competition for the last spot allotted to the wide receiver position. In three seasons with the Ravens, he hauled in 87 passes for 891 yards and seven touchdowns, yet none of those end-zone visits have occurred since his rookie campaign in 2013.
