Editor’s update 3:31 p.m.: Brown returned to action in the third quarter. He caught a three-yard pass from Lamar Jackson inside the red zone.

The Baltimore Ravens lead the Pittsburgh Steelers 17-10, but they’ve suffered a potentially notable loss in the first half. Rookie wide receiver Marquise Brown went back to the locker room with the team trainers to get checked out. He has been announced as questionable to return with a right ankle injury, per James Palmer. Brown had two receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown before the injury.

Fantasy football analysis, Baltimore Ravens WR Marquise Brown

We’re awaiting word on Hollywood’s status, but it would be a tough loss for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense. Brown was quiet last week against Cleveland (four receptions, 22 yards), but has remained one of Jackson’s most targeted players.

In his absence, Mark Andrews target share will likely continue to increase. Willie Snead is the wide receiver who benefits while Brown is sidelined. Hayden Hurst and Seth Roberts might see some work, but it will be the Andrews/Snead/Mark Ingram show for Lamar Jackson.

With less than four minutes remaining in the second quarter, we might just be left waiting until after halftime for an update on Brown’s status.
