Brown was released by the Colts on Sunday, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports. Brown missed some time in the preseason due to an ankle injury, but was able to make the team following Saturday's 53-man roster cut deadline. However, the Colts made a few waiver claims on Sunday and needed to free up some space, so Brown ended up being cut. The 28-year-old saw action in just eight games with the Colts last season and recorded 22 tackles.

Brown will be on the sidelines for a second straight game this preseason as he continues to nurse an ankle injury, for which no timetable has been announced. Once healthy, the 28-year-old figures to compete for backup cornerback role with Tevin Mitchel (shoulder) and Darius Butler (hamstring), who are both also nursing injuries.
Brown is dealing with an ankle injury and won't play in Saturday's preseason opener versus the Bills, George Bremer of the Herald Bulletin reports. Brown saw action in eight games with the Colts during the 2015 season, before being placed in IR with a groin injury. He was slated to potentially see a slight uptick in his role for the upcoming season, but is now dealing with an ankle injury, which limits his ability to impress the coaching staff. He's currently in a boot and remains without a timetable for a return, so Brown will have to wait to make his preseason debut.
Brown will start at cornerback with Greg Toler (knee) inactive against Jacksonville, Bob Kravitz of WTHR TV reports. Brown had been placed on injured reserve with the Colts in October and later released. He was signed last week. Brown started three games earlier in the season, so he should know the defense. He'll start opposite Vontae Davis.
The Colts have placed cornerback Jalil Brown (groin) on injured reserve, The Indianapolis Star reports. With Brown out for the season and Vontae Davis dealing with a foot issue, the Colts' cornerback depth is currently taxed, though on the plus side, Greg Toler has resumed practicing fully.
