    Bills' John Brown: Shut down in AFC title game

    John Brown caught two of four targets for 24 yards Sunday in the Buffalo Bills' 38-24 loss to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.The Kansas City secondary did an exceptional job of shutting down Buffalo's primary outside receivers in the contest, with Brown, Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis combining for eight receptions for 101 yards on 18 targets. The lackluster outing concluded an up-and-down season for Brown, who provided a number of big plays through the first half of the Bills' schedule before being derailed by the ankle sprain he suffered Week 10 in Arizona. Brown proceeded to miss the Bills' subsequent six games, then returned for Week 17 and the team's ensuing playoff run. He wasn't able to make a consistent splash in the Bills' final four games, however, reeling in 14 of 23 targets for 158 yards and a touchdown in those contests.

    Bills' John Brown: Totals eight catches in playoff win

    John Brown caught eight of his 11 targets for 62 yards during Saturday's 17-3 divisional-round win against the Ravens.Brown got his night started with a four-yard reception on Buffalo's opening drive, adding a pair of crafty sideline-straddling catches for 33 yards on subsequent plays later in the half. The veteran wideout ultimately tied Stefon Diggs for the team lead in receptions, though Brown proved to be more of a safety-valve option with his 7.8 yards-per-catch average. The output nonetheless provides a stark improvement from Brown's zero-catch showing in the wild-card round versus Indianapolis. He now prepares for an AFC Championship Game matchup against either Kansas City or Cleveland.

    Bills' John Brown: Blanked in wild-card round win

    John Brown failed to catch any of his four targets in Saturday's 27-24 wild-card round win over the Colts.Buffalo was able to advance despite Brown's dud. The veteran receiver battled through an injury-riddled regular season but seemed to be healing up down the stretch, so this goose egg was unexpected. He still tied for third on the team in targets and will look to redeem himself in the AFC divisional round next week.

    Bills' John Brown: Rejoins active roster

    John Brown (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.After previously having missed time with an ankle injury, the 30-year-old was activated from injured reserve at the start of the week, but he was immediately shifted to the COVID-19 list as a high-risk close contact of an infected person or persons. Having since cleared all health-related protocols, Brown will rejoin the Buffalo Bills for Sunday's regular-season finale, spelling an end to a five-game absence. While Brown should rejoin the starting lineup at receiver alongside Stefon Diggs and one of Cole Beasley (ankle) or Gabriel Davis, all of the Bills' primary wideouts could be rested to some degree during the Week 17 contest with Buffalo locked in as either the AFC's No. 2 or 3 seed in the playoffs.

    Bills' John Brown: Moves to COVID-19 list from IR

    John Brown (ankle) was activated from injured reserve Monday but has now been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Buffalo Bills' official site reports.Brown and two practice squad members -- Christian Wade and Josh Thomas -- have been placed on COVID-19 lists as close contacts to Bills running back T.J. Yeldon, who was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 on Sunday after testing positive. Brown obviously won't be returning for the Monday night matchup with the Patriots, while Gabriel Davis once again should see extra looks in what's proven to be a potent offense for most of the season, even without last year's leading receiver for much of it. Brown has only played eight games to date, and some of those have been partial appearances.

Yeldon (illness), who was placed on the COVID-19 list Sunday. For at least one more game, Gabriel Davis will start alongside Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley in three-receiver sets.

    Bills' John Brown: Not expected to play Monday

    The Buffalo Bills are not expected to activate John Brown (ankle) from IR in time for Monday's road game against the Patriots, Jeremy Fowler of reports.Brown resumed practicing Dec. 15, but it sounds as though he has a better chance to retake the field Week 17 than during Monday night's divisional matchup. If Brown indeed remains out Monday, Gabriel Davis will continue to work alongside Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley in three-receiver sets. Brown hasn't seen the field since Week 10.

    Bills' John Brown: Could be activated for Week 16

    John Brown (ankle), who remains on IR, is eligible to return to action Week 16, so long as the Buffalo Bills add him to their active roster by 4 p.m. ET on Monday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.If so, he'd be available to suit up for Monday night's game against the Patriots. With that in mind, Capaccio suggests that the team's release of wideout Jake Kumerow on Thursday "may be a precursor to creating a roster spot" for Brown, who last saw game action Week 10.

    Bills' John Brown: Won't play Week 15

    Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Thursday that John Brown (ankle) won't be activated from injured reserve ahead of Saturday's game against the Broncos.Since Brown has been on IR for the Bills' last three games, the wideout would have first been eligible to return to the active roster this week, but he apparently still needs more time to get his conditioning back in order. The fact that the Bills cleared Brown to practice Tuesday is at least tangible sign that he's made progress in his recovery from the right ankle injury, and he'll now look to ramp up his activity over the next week with the hope of returning to the lineup for Buffalo's Dec. 28 matchup with the Patriots.
