Brown said that he played through the 2018 season with a torn oblique and "should have sat out," JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Brown finished up the year with 96 tackles, one sack and two forced fumbles, a stark decrease in production compared to his last two seasons. It now appears that part of the reason for Brown's statistical regression can be attributed to playing through a torn oblique for much of 2018, which the veteran linebacker describes as having been "painful every day." Brown will benefit from a full offseason to recover from his injury and attempt to bounce back in 2019. However, amidst reports that the Redskins are considering moving on from Brown, the 29-year-old's next chance could come elsewhere in the league.
