Brown (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Eagles.
Brown is set to miss his first game since the 2018 season. This hurts the Saints' depth on their feared defensive front. His reps likely will be absorbed by Sheldon Rankins, David Onyemata and Shy Tuttle as the Saints look to stymie the Eagles run game, which should be enhanced with Jalen Hurts making his first career start.
Brown (calf) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Brown was forced out of last weekend's win over the 49ers with a calf injury, but he'll be back in action for Sunday's divisional contest.

Brown (calf) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Brown signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Saints on Thursday,Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Brown started 51 of a possible 60 games in New England over the last four seasons, posting 186 tackles and 8.5 sacks during that time. Brown was mostly utilized in a two-down role with the Patriots, but he could see a heavier workload in New Orleans according to Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. At the very least, the 25-year-old projects for a large role to begin 2019 with fellow defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins (Achilles) a PUP candidate.
Brown (calf) won't carry an injury designation into the Super Bowl on Sunday, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

Brown popped up on the injury report as a limited participant Wednesday.

The fact that Brown opened the week as a limited participant offers hope that the calf issue isn't anything that should put his status for the Super Bowl LIII matchup with the Rams in major jeopardy. In the event Brown's calf is still bothering him heading into Sunday, the Patriots would likely lean heavier on backup tackle Adam Butler, who actually earned more defensive snaps than Brown in the past two contests.
Brown (knee) will play Sunday versus the Bears.
Brown will return from his one-game absence and looks to contain Bears' running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen. The fourth-year pro has 10 tackles (eight solo) through five games so he's not a viable IDP option at this time.
Brown (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Brown continues to progress in his recovery from a knee injury sustained in Week 5, and was a limited participant in Friday's practice.
