Brown (illness) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's divisional-round playoff game against the Rams, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Brown was a full participant in Thursday's practice and appears to have fully recovered from his undisclosed illness. The second-year pro will suit up unhindered versus the Rams, and could be in line for increased offensive snaps with Allen Hurns (ankle) having moved to injured reserve earlier in the week.
Brown (illness) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Brown was held out of Tuesday's practice entirely, so his limited participation is a step in the right direction. With either a limited or full practice Thursday, Brown would put himself on track to play in Saturday's divisional-round matchup with the Rams. If that's the case, he would likely be in line for an increased offensive role as the Cowboys look to replace Allen Hurns (ankle).
The Cowboys activated Brown (hamstring) from injured reserve Friday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. After he was plagued by a hamstring injury during training camp and the preseason, Brown spent the first half of the campaign on injured reserve and instead focused on reviving his health. With a week of practice reps under his belt, he's been cleared to play again. It's difficult to forecast much production, though, with him being a member of the Cowboys' 29th-ranked passing attack (188.4 yards per game).
The Cowboys designated Brown (hamstring) to return to practice Thursday, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports. Dallas will now have a 21-day window with which to evaluate Brown for a return to the 53-man roster. Brown landed on injured reserve at the conclusion of the preseason, so with the mandatory eight weeks having already lapsed, the wideout will be eligible to play as soon as the Cowboys deem him ready to go. If Brown is cleared to dress for Dallas in Monday's game against the Titans or at some point before the three-week activation window closes, he likely would be ticketed for a depth role and wouldn't carry much fantasy appeal in the weak Cowboys passing attack.
Brown (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. Brown battled a hamstring injury early in training camp and never made an appearance in preseason action. As a result, he is destined for injured reserve to open a roster spot for the Cowboys' signing of Deonte Thompson.
