Brown (illness/toe/Achilles/hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Brown has played through an Achilles injury for much of the season, but the addition of three more issues will cause his first absence of the year. His toe injury seems to be the biggest problem at the moment, given that he was spotted wearing a walking boot at the team facility Thursday. The Redskins haven't ruled the league's leading tackler out beyond Sunday, but they also don't have much incentive to be overly aggressive with him now that a playoff berth is out of reach. Martrell Spaight likely will start next to Zach Vigil at inside linebacker come Sunday, but neither is likely to match Brown's usual IDP production.
Brown (illness/toe/Achilles/hip) was absent from practice Thursday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
It appears the toe is the major concern at this stage for Brown, who was still moving around in a walking boot Thursday, according to Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post. Per Finlay, Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that Brown could play Sunday against the Cardinals even if he's only able to practice once this week, though the linebacker will need to make "pretty significant" progress from where he's currently at on the health front.
Brown (illness/toe/Achilles/hip) didn't participate during practice Wednesday.
The toe injury and illness are the more recent additions to Brown's injury record, as it's the Achilles issue that has been a recurring problem the last several weeks. The 28-year-old linebacker recently underwent an MRI to determine the extent of his latest setback with the toe, but no specifics regarding those scans have been revealed. Given the extent of his bumps and bruises, however, Brown could end up missing Sunday's game against the Cardinals, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Brown (foot) will undergo an MRI exam to determine the severity of his injury, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.
Brown totaled 10 tackles (five solo) prior to sustaining the injury in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Chargers. The 28-year-old has been the anchor in the middle of the Redskins' defense this season and will hope to glean some good news over the next few days.
Brown is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chargers with a foot injury.
Brown exited in the second half of Sunday's game and came into the day dealing with Achilles and hamstring injuries. It seems unlikely for the 28-year-old to return given the Redskins are on their way to a blowout loss to the Chargers
