Brown was active for the first time since Week 9 and rushed once for five yards during Sunday's 43-35 loss to Philadelphia.
After missing four contests with a knee injury, Brown's return to the field without an aggravation to the ailment is encouraging for his health over the final weeks of the season. He also appears to have reestablished his position as the No. 2 running back behind Todd Gurley. However, the role is unlikely to lead to serviceable fantasy value as long as Gurley is healthy, so Brown's nothing more than a handcuff option at this stage of the game.
Brown was inactive for Sunday's win over the Cardinals but he is expected to be available for Week 14. The 24-year-old returns to a muddled situation with the return of Lance Dunbar, but workhorse Todd Gurley has unsurprisingly continued to dominate the offensive backfield for the Rams.
Brown (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Despite returning to a full practice Friday after logging limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday, Brown will be sidelined for the fourth straight game. The Rams are only keeping two running backs active Sunday, with Lance Dunbar (knee) serving as the lone backup to bell cow Todd Gurley.
Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.
After opening the week with two limited practices, Brown was upgraded to a full participant Friday, his first such session since suffering an MCL injury in a Nov. 5 win over the Giants. While it appears Brown is inching closer to full health, the Rams may want to have him pick up more practice time before having him dress in a game. No matter if he's cleared to play this week or next, he'll hold a minimal role in the offense behind a healthy Todd Gurley.
Brown (knee) returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Brown hasn't practiced or played in a game since he suffered an MCL injury in a Week 9 win over the Giants. Lead back Todd Gurley has rarely left the field in competitive situations the past three weeks, only occasionally giving way to Tavon Austin in the backfield. Neither Brown nor Lance Dunbar (knee) provides a major threat to Gurley's workload.
