Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Mike Brown missed last week’s game against the Houston Texans with a shoulder injury, and he’s practiced on a limited basis everyday this week. Brown will most likely play on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns (you know, the battle of Chad Henne vs. Brandon Weeden), but it sounds like he’s going to be a game-time decision.
According to Jaguars official site beat writer John Oehser, head coach Gus Bradley stated that Brown has officially been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. Per Oehser, Brown will “probably” end up being a game-time decision, but every indication is that he will be out there on Sunday as the Jaguars No. 2 wide receiver opposite of Cecil Shorts III, who remains the Jaguars only legitimate fantasy option at receiver.
Brown has caught 17 passes for 289 yards this season as a deep threat in the Jaguars offense, but to really get a feel for Brown’s impact you have to look at his solid 48.2 yards per game average. He isn’t much of a threat to do anything unless if it’s garbage time and/or the team the Jaguars are facing as a shutdown No. 1 corner and a subpar No. 2 corner. Aside from Brown’s monster game in Week 7, he has not put up 50 yards of receiving in a game.
