  • Preston Brown: Cut loose by Raiders

    The Raiders waived Brown on Tuesday.

    Brown spent less than a month with the Raiders, suiting up in one game and playing 17 defensive snaps. The 27-year-old linebacker didn't seem to be a good fit, but it wouldn't be surprising if another team took a flier on the sixth-year pro.

  • Jaguars' Preston Brown: Plucked off waivers

    The Jaguars claimed Brown off waivers from the Raiders on Wednesday.

    Brown will add depth to the Jaguars injury-riddled linebacker corps going forward, and he'll have a shot at a starting role right off the bat. The sixth-year linebacker could come in handy Sunday against the Raiders, as Brown should have a good grasp on their system after spending the last four weeks with them.

  • Raiders' Preston Brown: Finds new home in Oakland

    The Raiders signed Brown to the 53-man roster Monday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Brown cleared waivers after the Bengals cut him last Tuesday, and he'll push for the starting middle linebacker role in Oakland. The Raiders haven't found a full-time replacement at the position since Vontaze Burfict was suspended for the rest of the year. Brown -- a third-round pick in the 2014 draft -- should fit the scheme after playing in a 4-3 system with Cincinnati. The 27-year-old posted 54 tackles through nine games with the Bengals.

  • Preston Brown: Shown door in Cincy

    The Bengals waived Brown on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The Bengals inked Brown to a three-year, $16.5 million deal with $4.48 million guaranteed in March, making him the team's most expensive linebacker. The 27-year-old has 54 tackles (27 solo) and a forced fumble through the first nine winless games, and coach Zac Taylor decided it was time for a change.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: Racks up 14 tackles

    Brown made 14 tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

    The 49ers ran the ball 42 times in this contest, which gave Brown plenty of action but was also a result of the Bengals' inability to stop the run (6.2 YPC). Brown had IDP value in this contest, but this should more or less be his ceiling with few teams expected to run as much as the 49ers did Sunday.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: Lost weight before camp

    Brown had to lose over 20 pounds this summer as part of his recovery from multiple injuries last season, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Brown ate poorly after getting knocked out for the season, loading up on carbs without running them off. This summer he underwent an intensive four-week training session and now uses a special chef to make sure he's eating healthy. The Bengals are counting on him to call the defensive signals from his linebacker spot this season.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: Cleared from injury

    Brown (ankle/knee) was recently cleared to resume all football activities, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Brown revealed that he received a clean bill of health shortly after re-signing with the Bengals on a three-year, $21 million deal. He missed the final seven games of 2018 due to the injury, finishing the season with 42 tackles (27 solo) and two interceptions in seven contests. Dehner relays that Brown wants to shed 15 pounds this offseason, which would aid the linebacker's sideline-to-sideline speed and perhaps help him boost his tackle count.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: Re-signs with Bengals

    Brown came to terms Tuesday with the Bengals on a three-year, $21 million contract, Fletcher Page of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Brown played just seven games during an injury plagued 2018 season that saw him end up on IR. He totaled 42 tackles (27 solo) and four passes defensed, including two interceptions on the year. At the very least, he'll help shore up the Bengals' defense once again in 2019, though Brown could be pushed to the outside if the team invests an early selection in a middle linebacker.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: Placed on IR

    The Bengals placed Brown (leg) on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Brown injured his leg against the Saints in Week 10, and he was originally expected to miss multiple weeks, though the exact extent of the injury wasn't disclosed. Now, the linebacker will miss the rest of the season after being placed on injured reserve.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: Ruled out Sunday

    Brown (leg) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Katherine Terrell of 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.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: Likely to miss multiple weeks

    Brown, who missed Wednesday's practice with a leg injury, is expected to miss multiple weeks, Richard Skinner of Local 12 Cincinnati reports.

    Brown wouldn't official confirm the nature of his injury, but he was spotted with a sizable brace on his knee. The linebacker apparently tweaked the knee in Sunday's 51-14 loss to the Saints and looks like he'll miss this weekend's tilt with the Ravens, if not more contests to follow. Fortunately for the Bengals, Vontaze Burfict (hip) should be on track to return from a two-game absence in Week 11 to provide further reinforcement at linebacker. Burfict practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: Misses practice Wednesday

    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.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: No missed tackles

    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.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: Full participant in practice Thursday

    Brown (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Brown was injured in the Bengals' Week 1 win over the Colts and hasn't played since. The former Louisville standout finally recorded a full day of practice after failing to do so last week. This news points toward Brown suiting up in Week 4.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: Inactive against Carolina

    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.

  • Bengals' Preston Brown: Questionable for Sunday's contest

    Brown (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

    After a stellar season opener of four tackles and an interception, Brown missed the Week 2 matchup versus the Ravens. He was a limited participant in practice all week. Expect Hardy Nickerson to fill his place if Brown can't go again.
