Bills' John Brown: Not playing Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills have ruled Brown (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Despite playing all but two of the Bills' offensive snaps in Monday's loss to the Chiefs, Brown was a non-factor in the passing game while he returned to the lineup after a one-game absence due to the knee injury. The wideout may have aggravated the injury in the contest, as he failed to practice in any capacity Wednesday through Friday before the Bills ruled him out for the Week 7 contest. Expect Gabriel Davis to take Brown's spot in the lineup, joining Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley in three-wide sets.

Bills' John Brown: Not spotted at Friday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) isn't present at the early portion of Friday's practice, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

Brown looks on track to miss his third straight practice session of the week, which would cast serious doubt about his availability for Sunday's matchup with the Jets. The veteran wideout missed Week 5 due to the same injury, but he managed to suit up in the Bills' Week 6 loss to the Chiefs. The release of Buffalo's official injury report later Friday should provide a clearer update on Brown's chances of playing.

Bills' John Brown: Sits out practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) missed practice again Thursday, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

Back-to-back absences set the stage for Friday's practice to be a key determinant in Brown's Week 7 status. If he's out or limited Sunday against the Jets, Gabriel Davis would be in line to see added snaps alongside Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley.

Bills' John Brown: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

The wideout, who sat out Week 5 action due to the same injury, returned Monday to play 51 of the Bills' 53 offensive snaps in a 26-17 loss to the Chiefs. With no reported setbacks in the contest, his absence from practice Wednesday seems likely to be maintenance-related, a scenario that would be confirmed as long Brown returns to practice in some capacity Thursday.

Bills' John Brown: Unlikely to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) isn't expected to practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Though he was on the field for 51 of the Bills' 53 snaps on offense in Monday's 26-17 loss to the Chiefs, Brown failed to haul in any of his four targets. Given his workload in that contest, his absence from practice Wednesday seems more likely to be maintenance-related than indicative of a setback with the knee issue that kept him out of action in Week 5.

Bills' John Brown: Goose egg in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown failed to catch any of his four targets in Monday's 26-17 loss to the Chiefs.

Brown overcame a questionable tag to return from a knee injury that sidelined him in Week 5. Although he was back in action, Brown failed to make an impact, starting the game by having a pass bounce off his facemask to stall Buffalo's opening drive. While consistent rain hampered the Bills' offense as a whole, Brown will still be eager to get back to his usual self in Week 7 versus the Jets, a team he caught six passes for 70 yards and a touchdown against to start this season.

Bills' John Brown: Suits up Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Chiefs, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

With Brown back after a one-game absence, look for Gabriel Davis to revert to a secondary role Monday, while Stefon Diggs, Brown and Cole Beasley head the Bills' Week 6 wide receiver corps. Assuming no in-game setbacks, Brown should see his share of targets, especially if the Chiefs elect to focus on containing Diggs, who racked up 10 catches for 106 yards in last Tuesday's loss to the Titans.

Bills' John Brown: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday's contest against the Chiefs.

Fantasy managers should pay attention to Brown's practice log, as the wide receiver was a full participant in practice each of the last two days, but surprisingly only practiced in limited fashion Saturday. It's not an immediate cause for concern, namely because the Bills are still listing Brown as questionable despite the practice downgrade, but it's certainly something to monitor ahead of Monday's 5:00 p.m. ET kickoff. Brown's absence in Tuesday's loss to the Titans set the stage for Gabriel Davis to register a season-high 72 snaps, which would likely be a similar outcome this week if Brown were unable to suit up.

Bills' John Brown: Logs another full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) practiced fully Friday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Brown was also listed as a full participant Thursday, but that session was more of a jog-through. With a normal practice now under his belt, Brown is in line to return to action Monday against the Chiefs. In that scenario Gabriel Davis would presumably revert to a secondary role, while Brown, Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley head the Bills' Week 6 wide receiver corps.

Bills' John Brown: Full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) was considered a full practice participant for Thursday's jog-through session, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

While we need to see how Brown does in more serious practice conditions Friday and Saturday, this bodes well for his chances of playing Monday against the Chiefs after missing Tuesday's loss to the Titans.

October 15, 2020 12:36 PM
Bills' John Brown: Participating in jog-through
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) will participate in Thursday's practice, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Though coach Sean McDermott noted that the session will be a "jog through," it's still a good sign that Brown will be out there with his teammates as the Bills prepare for Monday's game against the Chiefs. The wideout was inactive Week 5, which paved the way for Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis and Cole Beasley to head Buffalo's wide receiver corps in this past Tuesday's 42-16 loss to the Titans.

Bills' John Brown: Missing first game of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (knee) is listed as inactive Tuesday in Tennessee.

Brown has been beset by injuries this season, first with a foot issue and more recently with a calf concern. The latter resulted in a DNP on Wednesday's practice report, and after being listed as LP on three ensuing reports, he was handed a questionable designation for Week 5 with a knee issue. Still, the Bills have opted to keep Brown in street clothes Tuesday, leaving Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Gabriel Davis, Isaiah McKenzie and Andre Roberts as the wide receivers available to quarterback Josh Allen. Brown's next chance to play arrives Monday against the Chiefs.

Bills' John Brown: Gets questionable designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills have officially listed Brown as questionable for Tuesday's tilt against the Titans due to a knee injury.

Brown was limited once again at Saturday's practice. The specifics are worth noting, as he was listed as having a calf issue all week before officially landing on the injury report with a knee injury. With the game being postponed to Tuesday, the 30-year-old pass catcher will have some extra time to recover. If he is ultimately unable to go, Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley could be even more involved in the passing game than usual, while Gabriel Davis and Isaiah McKenzie would presumably see some extra snaps.

Bills' John Brown: Estimated as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (calf) was estimated as a limited participant on Friday's injury report.

The Bills didn't actually practice Friday, so it's not a major surprise the 30-year-old's participation level was listed the same as it was Thursday. The Bills' Week 5 matchup with the Titans has been postponed until Tuesday, and the game will only be played if Tennessee avoids additional positive tests for COVID-19 prior to then. As a result, Brown will have some extra time to gear up if the game is played as currently scheduled.

Bills' John Brown: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (calf) was officially listed as limited at Thursday's practice, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

That's no surprise considering Brown came up hobbling after one of his Thursday reps, but it's worth confirming that his injury is still listed as a calf issue. In any case, Brown's status, as well as that of the Bills' scheduled game against the Titans -- whose Week 4 contest was postponed -- remains worth monitoring as the weekend approaches.

Bills' John Brown: Appears to aggravate injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown appeared to aggravate his calf injury during Thursday's practice, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

Brown missed Wednesday's practice and it appears as though he tweaked his calf in his return to the field Thursday. As a result, look for the wideout to be listed as a limited participant on the Bills' official injury report, with Brown's Friday participation level thus becoming something to monitor closely.

Bills' John Brown: Calf injury still an issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown missed Wednesday's practice due to a calf issue, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Brown was forced out of the Week 3 contest with the same injury, but he ramped up his activity at practice last week and played 85 percent of the offensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Raiders, narrowly missing out on a touchdown. While Brown's complete absence Wednesday isn't great news, coach Sean McDermott may just be resting the veteran receiver. Another update on Brown's activity (or lack thereof) in practice will come Thursday.

Bills' John Brown: Just misses score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown caught four of five targets for 42 yards during Sunday's win in Las Vegas.

Brown was able to work a full shift after exiting last week's game with a calf injury. While the production was modest by his standards, he was jobbed out of a touchdown by being ruled down just shy of the goal line on a fantastic catch in the fourth quarter that probably would have stood as a TD had the refs initially called him in. Brown and the Bills get the Titans in Week 5, and while the veteran should be clear of his injury issue, the game itself is up in the air given the Titans' COVID-19 troubles.

October 2, 2020 02:32 PM
Bills' John Brown: Clear for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (calf) practiced in full Friday and doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game at Las Vegas.

Brown exited the Bills' Week 3 victory against the Rams with a calf injury that kept him sidelined at Wednesday's practice before putting in a limited session Thursday. Now clear of the health concern, he can focus on a Raiders defense that has allowed just 7.7 yards per target and one TD to wide receivers this season.

October 1, 2020 03:52 PM
Bills' John Brown: Returns to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (calf) was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday.

With that, Brown is trending in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Raiders approaches. Friday's final injury report should reveal whether he heads into the weekend listed as questionable or free from a Week 4 injury designation. The wideout didn't haul in either of the two targets he saw before exiting this past Sunday's 35-32 win over the Rams while logging 29 snaps on offense.
