Brown (leg) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. The leg injury Brown sustained last Sunday against the Saints is expected to sideline him for multiple weeks, so this isn't surprising. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the 26-year-old will miss at least one game, while a multi-game absence remains a distinct possibility. Nick Vigil (knee) has also been ruled out while Vontaze Burfict (hip) has some hope to return since he is listed as questionable.
Brown didn't practice Wednesday due to a leg injury. Brown's absence early in the week casts some doubt on his availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Should he wind up missing out, Hardy Nickerson would likely step into a starting role.
Brown is the only Bengals defensive starter that hasn't missed a tackle this year, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Last week was a missed tackle carnival for the Bengals, as they whiffed 18 times against the Chiefs. They have 67 missed tackles for the season. While Brown has been sure-handed, he isn't racking up the tackle count like he did with the Bills, totaling only 26 tackles through five games so far.
Brown (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Panthers. Brown failed to record a full practice all week and entered Sunday's contest with a "questionable" tag. With Brown on the shelf, look for Hardy Nickerson to see an increased snap count at the inside linebacker spot.
Brown (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Brown was held out of Week 2's victory over the Ravens, and he's yet to log a full participation in practice this week. It remains to be seen whether Brown will be able to suit up for Sunday's game against the Panthers, but Hardy Nickerson would be in line to serve as the Bengals' starting middle linebacker if Brown misses any time.
