Brown (concussion) recorded a solo tackle and recovered a fumble in Saturday's preseason game at Minnesota.
Brown was put into the concussion protocol during the preseason opener last week, but cleared the protocol and was able to play 16 defensive and 10 special teams snaps in Saturday's game. The 24-year-old is on track to serve as a rotational linebacker and special teams contributor this season.
Brown is in the concussion protocol after Thursday's preseason game against the Saints, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.
Brown played 13 defensive snaps and added seven snaps on special teams before leaving with the injury. The 24-year-old will have to clear to concussion protocol before fully returning to practice.
This comes in response to the Jags moving Myles Jack to middle linebacker in base coverage. Brown still isn't expected to play more than 35 percent of defensive snaps, but his run-stopping abilities will be key to repeating the best defense of 2017.
