Redskins' Zach Brown: Posts 10 tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown recorded 10 tackles (four solo) across 51 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

After being limited in Week 1's win over the Cardinals, Brown played 84 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday. The increased reps paid off, as Brown recorded the second-highest tackle count on the team behind Mason Foster. Both Brown and Foster saw increased defensive snaps on Sunday, a trend that could continue as the season progresses.

Redskins' Zach Brown: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (oblique) should be ready by next week, John Keim of reports.

Brown has been battling an oblique injury for much of August but seems like he's on the verge of returning to 100 percent. When Brown returns he'll likely resume his starting duties at outside linebacker, though teammate Josh Harvey-Clemons could still steal some passing downs from him during the regular season.

Redskins' Zach Brown: Misses third preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (undisclosed) didn't play in Friday's preseason loss to Denver.

Brown dealt with a mild stomach strain early in training camp but then made a brief appearance in Washington's second preseason game. His absence Friday allowed Zach Vigil to get the start at inside linebacker next to Mason Foster. There was some talk about Brown losing snaps to Josh Harvey-Clemons on passing downs, but it seems more likely the 28-year-old will handle his usual three-down role if he's healthy for Week 1 against the Cardinals. Brown had a shot to lead the NFL in tackles last season until an assortment of minor injuries held him out for the final three weeks.

Redskins' Zach Brown: Tending to strained stomach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown didn't practice Monday due to a mild stomach strain, Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post reports.

Brown has been a tackle machine when on the field as a pro, averaging 9.4 tackles per game in his six seasons. The end of the past campaign included three consecutive DNPs due to a variety of injuries, and visits to the trainer's room haven't dissipated in training camp. So far, he's dealt with a quad concern in addition to the strained stomach muscle, meaning the health of the Redskins' inside linebacker will continue to be monitored closely for IDP purposes.

Redskins' Zach Brown: Could lose some snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown could lose some snaps to Josh Harvey-Clemons on passing downs, Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Despite averaging 9.5 tackles in 29 games the past two seasons, Brown apparently isn't a lock for an every-down role after struggling in pass coverage last year. Harvey-Clemons has been getting some work with the starters during training camp, sometimes replacing Brown in the nickel defense. It's a development worth watching in IDP leagues, with Brown's status as an elite option potentially taking a hit.
