Brown recorded 39 tackles (32 solo) with three passes defended, two interceptions, one sack and a fumble return for a touchdown over 10 games in 2020.
Two separate rib injuries cost him six games, but Brown still came up with some big plays when he was healthy, including his 29-yard TD against the Giants in Week 5. The Cowboys are expected to have a lot of turnover in the secondary this offseason thanks to numerous free agents and a new defensive coordinator in Dan Quinn, but Brown, who has two years and $9.25 million left on his current contract, figures to help provide the group with a little continuity.
Brown (ribs) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Brown missed the past three games due to the ribs injury, but as evidenced by this news, he appears on track to return for Week 15. Brown has been a starter when healthy this season, logging 25 tackles (23 solo), one sack and a fumble recovery touchdown through seven games. Now appearing cleared from injury, it's likely he could assume a staring role, but it's unclear how much Brown is expected to play.
Brown (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Bengals, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Chidobe Awuzie is on the reserve/COVID-19 list and will also miss Week 14. Jourdan Lewis is the only mainstay this week for the Cowboys' cornerback corps. C.J. Goodwin and Deante Burton are candidates to slot into starting roles versus the Bengals in place of Brown and Awuzie.
Brown (ribs) has been downgraded to out for Tuesday's game against the Ravens, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Brown was originally considered questionable for Tuesday's contest, but he'll end up missing his second straight game due to the rib injury. Jourdan Lewis and Chidobe Awuzie are poised to start at cornerback for the Cowboys this week.
Brown (ribs) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Ravens, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Brown missed last week's game with this injury. He's been unable to practice without limitations yet, but he could give it a go with a few extra days of rest ahead of Tuesday's outing. The 27-year-old will start at cornerback if he's active. Otherwise, Jourdan Lewis should slot in as a stater once again.
Brown (ribs) is inactive for the team's Week 12 matchup against Washington.
Brown was listed as questionable ahead of the matchup after getting in a limited practice Wednesday. However, he isn't ready to take the field after suffering his injury late in the fourth quarter in Week 11. Chidobe Awuzie will likely take on a bigger role in Brown's absence.
Brown (ribs) has been deemed questionable for Thursday's matchup against Washington, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Brown suffered the injury to his ribs in Sunday's game against the Vikings, and he missed the first two practices of the week before logging a limited session Wednesday. That gives the fifth-year pro a shot to be on the field Thursday, though he's likely on the wrong side of questionable given the short week.
Brown (ribs) isn't expected to play in Thursday's game against Washington, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Robinson suffered a rib injury late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Vikings. The nature of his injury remains unclear, but the Cowboys don't expect him to be able to recover on a short week. With Trevon Diggs (foot) already on IR, the team is expected to utilize practice squad cornerback Rashard Robinson as the main reserve behind Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis.
Brown (ribs) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Brown was forced out with less than five minutes left in the fourth quarter Sunday, making his return appear unlikely. With Trevon Diggs (foot) on injured reserve, Dallas could be forced to proceed forward without both starting cornerbacks for the remainder of Sunday's game.
The Cowboys activated Brown (ribs) from injured reserve Saturday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Brown practiced all week and proved he's ready to return to game action. The Cowboys' defense is among the worst in the league, so the 26-year-old cornerback likely will boost its effectiveness to some degree. Last season, Brown played nine games and allowed a 79.9 passer rating and no touchdowns when targeted.
Brown (ribs) practiced Wednesday, indicating that his 21-day window to return from IR has begun, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.
The Cowboys have until Oct. 28 to activate Brown, but he could play as early as Sunday's game against the Giants. Brown started the season opener against the Rams and would be a useful addition to a Cowboys' defense that is getting torched on a weekly basis.
Brown (ribs) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Brown sustained this injury in Week 1 against the Rams, a game in which he played all 73 defensive snaps. It appears the injury is worse than expected, though, as Brown won't be available until at Oct. 11 versus the Giants at the earliest. Jourdan Lewis, who missed the season opener, will likely cover the slot in Brown's stead.
Brown (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Brown is a late addition to the injury report after the team listed him as a limited participant in Friday's walk-through. His six tackles against the Rams in Week 1 already have Brown more than a third of the way to his 2019 total of 17.
Brown (triceps) could play a key role in the Cowboy's secondary in 2020 and is a near lock to make the roster, Jess Haynie of InsideTheStar.com reports.
Brown rejoined the Cowboys courtesy of a three-year, $15.5 million deal in March, positioning him to serve as a pillar of stability in the team's secondary amid a time of transition. With Byron Jones having left for Miami, Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis set to walk in 2021, and rookies Trevon Diggs and Reggie Robinson navigating an offseason of limited in-person activities, Dallas could be in a position to lean heavily on Brown's consistency for 2020. He's expected to be fully recovered from last November's triceps surgery in time for training camp.
Brown (triceps) came to terms on a three-year contract with the Cowboys on Wednesday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
After the Cowboys let Byron Jones walk in free agency, Brown should be well positioned to claim a full-time starting role in the Dallas secondary after re-signing with the team. The 26-year-old is still recovering from the surgery he required in late November to address a torn triceps, but he'll presumably be good to go when training camp opens.
Brown (triceps) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Brown is set to have surgery to address a torn triceps, so the move to injured reserve was only a matter of time. The 25-year-old will head into free agency having missed the finals six games of the season.
Brown will have surgery to repair a torn triceps he incurred during Sunday's win over the Lions, Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports.
The fourth-year pro has been ruled out for the season, so he'll likely be placed on IR in the near future. Brown made four starts in nine games this year, although he recently saw his usage drop off with Jourdan Lewis taking over as the starting nickel corner. Set to be an unrestricted free agent in March, Brown's recovery could make an impact on whether he re-signs with the Cowboys.
Brown suffered a torn triceps in Sunday's win over the Lions and will miss the rest of the season, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Brown played 12 defensive snaps Sunday before suffering the injury during the fourth quarter. The 25-year-old has played a limited role as the Cowboys' No. 4 cornerback since the Week 8 bye. C.J. Goodwin figures to step into that role in his absence.
Brown (hamstring) is officially active for Monday's divisional matchup against the Giants, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Brown only logged limited practice throughout the week and carried a questionable designation, so his availability is certainly a positive for the team. Now that the Purdue product is officially healthy, look for him to assume his usual nickel cornerback role in the secondary.
Brown (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Giants, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Brown worked as a limited practice participant this week and may be able to return to the field coming out of the bye week. Jourdan Lewis would work as the Cowboys' nickel cornerback should Brown be unable to suit up Monday.
