Brown played in one game for the Vikings in 2017 after being waived by the Redskins, returning one kickoff for 17 yards. The third-year running back will likely hold a depth role for Minnesota in 2018.
Brown struggled to carve out a role for himself in Washington, which forced the team to waive the second-year back in late October. He was then picked up by the Vikings but was only active for one contest and failed to receive any offensive reps. The undrafted free agent will look for another opportunity to make a 53-man roster this offseason, although time may be running out.
Brown (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Since being scooped up off waivers from the Redskins on Oct. 30, Brown has appeared in just one game for the Vikings, logging eight snaps on special teams. It looks like head coach Mike Zimmer is content just to keep two running backs (Jerick McKinnon and Latavius Murray) active most weeks.
Brown was waived by the Redskins on Saturday in order to make room for offensive lineman Arie Kouandijio. Brown will help add depth to the Vikings' running back unit, as the team only had two healthy tailbacks prior to the transaction.
Brown has seen minimal offensive action this season with eight carries for 27 yards, and was active for only three of the Redskins' six games thus far. The 26-year-old was let go to add offensive guard Arie Kouandjio, as Washington's offensive line is plagued by injury.
