Brown was a Bengals' fifth-round pick out of Virginia last April but was unable to crack the 53-man roster. The 23-year-old spent the first 10 weeks of the season on the practice squad before finishing the season on the practice squad/injured list with an undisclosed issue.
Brown (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Brown missed just under two weeks for undisclosed reasons. The rookie fifth-round pick will need to make up for lost time as there are only two preseason chances remaining before 53-man roster cut downs. Should he make the team, Brown projects as a depth defensive lineman.
The fifth-round selection in 2018, Brown is battling to secure reps as a rotational player at defensive tackle. It appears he's hit a bump in the road missing practice Saturday. Consider him day-to-day until something else indicates otherwise.
