Brown was a late addition to the injury report this week and was tagged as questionable, but the injury was never expected to keep him out. He'll start at cornerback for the Cowboys, with Orlando Scandrick and Bene Benwikere seeing increased snaps at the other spot while Nolan Carroll (concussion) is inactive.
Brown (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Brown was added to the injury report Thursday and was limited at practice Friday as well, but the injury isn't believed to be serious. Should he be unable to play, the Cowboys must hope Nolan Carroll (concussion) is able to suit up. Otherwise, Orlando Scandrick and Bene Benwikere would both be in line for heavily increased roles.
Brown was limited at Thursday's practice due to an ankle injury, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.
The issue is not believed to be serious, so the Cowboys are likely just exercising caution here. Should he ultimately suffer a setback and be unable to suit up for Sunday's tilt against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, Orlando Scandrick would presumably be next in line to start at cornerback opposite Nolan Carroll.
Brown (hamstring) is expected to be healthy and ready to go for Week 1, Matt Mosley of SportsDayDFW.com reports.
Brown has been limited during camp due to a hamstring injury. He most recently struggled against Derrick Carr and the Raiders in Week 3 of the preseason but is on track to be ready to go for the season. He projects to provide depth at cornerback.
Brown reported that he's not concerned about the hamstring injury he sustained during Thursday's Hall of Fame Game against the Cardinals, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Brown exited Thursday's contest with a hamstring injury but apparently isn't too concerned about his physical condition following the team's first preseason game. In a postgame interview, Brown made his lack of concern evident, stating that "I just have to great treatment tomorrow. It's just tight. Nothing major." The young cornerback sounds like he'll be good to go in the long-term, though his availability in the team's upcoming practices could be in doubt.
