Brown (ankle) hauled in both targets for 78 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's victory against the Buccaneers.
With Carson Palmer slinging it around the field in the final 3:06 of the first half, the
Brown made a brief appearance on the injury report this week, but rid himself of an injury designation in advance of the Cardinals' Week 2 tilt. With JJ Nelson (shoulder) on the pine, Brown will be the sole available reserve wideout.
Brown (ankle) returned to a full practice Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 reports.
A mid-week addition to the injury report, Brown is apparently only dealing with a minor issue. He should be fine for Sunday's game, but he'll likely play limited snaps as the No. 4 wide receiver. Brown logged just 17 snaps (of a possible 61) Week 1 against New England.
Brown was one of three Cardinals to be added to the team's second injury report of the week. His ability to practice in some capacity is generally a good sign that he can bounce back, but his status should be clarified heading into the weekend.
Brown gathered in his sole target for 10 yards during Sunday's preseason loss at Houston.
The wide receiving corps in Arizona has been dinged up this preseason, with both Larry Fitzgerald (knee) and John Brown (concussion) missing time due to injury. Jaron Brown's status as the No. 4 wideout has thrust him into a more prominent role, which has equated to three catches (on five targets) for 50 yards. His ability to play outside and in slot makes him a luxury item in the offense, and an absence in the regular season from any of the top 3 (also, Michael Floyd) would translate to an elevated snap count.
