Supplementing rookie John Brown's success at wide receiver, Jaron Brown made sure the Cardinals didn't feel the temporary loss of injured receivers Michael Floyd and Ted Ginn, Jr. on Saturday.
The second-year pro caught quarterback Drew Stanton's 5-yard pass in traffic for the Cardinals' second touchdown of the game, and tallied 15 yards in two receptions.
Brown saw action in 16 games last season and recorded 140 yards in 11 receptions. Coming out of his rookie season, the receiver said his game improved considerably.
"It's a lot better," he said. "I feel like we're finally starting to get some kind of rhythm going with the quarterbacks. That's one thing we work on in training camp."
Not having to worry about replacing Floyd and Ginn long-term, Brown's performance Saturday made it that much harder for Arians to trim his receiving pool.
