Brown will move to strong-side linebacker in 2018, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports. This comes in response to the Jags moving Myles Jack to middle linebacker in base coverage. Brown still isn't expected to play more than 35 percent of defensive snaps, but his run-stopping abilities will be key to repeating the best defense of 2017.
Brown suffered a lower-leg injury in Wednesday's practice but still has a chance to play in Sunday's playoff game against the Steelers, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports. The linebacker has mostly served in reserve duty for the Jaguars this season. Currently in a walking boot and on crutches, Brown's status in practice the rest of the week will be one to monitor ahead of Jacksonville's divisional round showdown with Pittsburgh.
Brown (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Titans. Brown has been cleared to play in Week 17 after logging full practices Thursday and Friday. The reserve linebacker has averaged two tackles per game throughout the Jaguars' past four contests.
Brown (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. Brown practiced in full capacity Thursday and Friday and seems likely to receive clearance to play. The fifth-round rookie has cranked out at least two tackles in four of his past five games.
Brown will start at outside linebacker in place of the injured Telvin Smith (concussion) during Sunday's game against the Colts, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports. Brown, who was selected by the Jaguars in the fifth round of this year's draft, will make his first career NFL start due to Smith's absence. Brown logged four tackles (three solo) during last week's loss to the Cardinals, bringing his total to seven tackles on the season.
