Brown caught his sole target for 13 yards during Saturday's playoff loss to the Rams. He finished the regular season with five catches on eight targets for 54 yards across eight games.
Brown missed the first eight games of the regular season due to a hamstring injury sustained in training camp. After returning from injured reserve on Nov. 9, he regularly served as a depth wideout. Despite seeing double-digit offensive snaps in all but two of his games played, Brown never managed to log more than one catch in a single game. The second-year pro will attempt to make use of his 6-foot-2, 225 pound frame to hold on to his depth role this offseason.
Brown was a full participant in Thursday's practiced, and appears to have fully recovered from his undisclosed illness. The second-year pro will suit up unhindered versus the Rams, and could be in line for increased offensive snaps with Allen Hurns (ankle) moved to injured reserve earlier in the week.
Brown (illness) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Brown did not practice Tuesday, so his limited participation is a step in the right direction. The second-year pro is recovering from an illness, but appears to be trending towards availability for Saturday's contest against the Rams. If Brown is able to suit up, he could once again see an increased offensive role in the absence of Allen Hurns (ankle).
Brown didn't practice Tuesday due to an illness, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.
Brown's illness isn't thought to be severe and, barring the ailment persists, he'll likely play Saturday against the Rams. Brown saw a season-high 27 snaps in Saturday's wild-card win over the Seahawks after Allen Hurns (ankle) went down. He had just one reception, but the increased workload with Hurns out could mean Brown is in for another significant snap total Saturday.
Brown caught one of two targets for 22 yards in Thursday's win over Washington.
After spending the first eight games of the season on IR, Brown returned to the lineup in Week 10 but didn't see his first targets until Thanksgiving. The second-year wideout won't be a big part of the Cowboys' passing attack going forward, but his size could make him an occasional red-zone option, particularly given the team's lack of dependable tight ends.
