Cardinals wide receiver John Brown went into the league’s concussion protocol early in training camp and wound up missing three weeks of work before getting cleared to return to practice last weekend.
Brown’s return to action has hit a snag, however. Coach Bruce Arians said, via Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, that Brown has a headache and won’t practice on Wednesday.
Brown's departure is a bit alarming given that he already missed three weeks with the concussion. We've bumped him down our rankings a bit due to the chances that he might miss a game or two early in the season. When Brown missed Week 8 of last season, Jaron Brown played 47% of the snaps, catching one pass for 39 yards on four targets. J.J. Nelson played 25% of the snaps and caught three passes for 70 yards on four targets.
