On Thursday, a review of Cardinals practice appeared on the team’s website and it mentioned wide receiver John Brown looking like he was “past his health concerns” after a 2016 season that was plagued with them.
Those concerns caught up with the speedy wideout, however. Coach Bruce Arians said on Friday, via the Arizona Republic, that Brown will miss a couple of days and perhaps up to a week of practice time because of a strained quad.
The story pointed it out it normally may not be a big deal at this point in camp, but Brown has dealt with soft tissue injuries throughout the year and had hamstring issues during spring work. Brown also had a cyst on his spine and worked to figure out the best way to deal with a sickle cell trait in his blood that doctors felt contributed to some of his other injuries.
