The Baltimore Ravens host the Houston Texans in Week 11, and they face a notable question mark on the injury report. Wide receiver Marquise Brown was limited in practice on Wednesday to an ankle injury he’s dealt with much of this season, but he was downgraded to DNP on Thursday’s report.
Brown injured his ankle in Week 5 and sat out Weeks 6 and 7. He returned after the team’s bye but has been on the injury report each week. In two games since returning from the sprained ankle, he has eight catches for 128 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy football analysis: Ravens WR Marquise Brown
Brown shot onto the scene in his Week 1 debut, catching five receptions for 147 yards and two touchdowns. He’s been hit or miss since, although he had 80 yards and a touchdown last week. It remains to be seen if he’s officially turning things around after a few down weeks.
The downgrade to DNP on Thursday is concerning since it suggests he aggravated the injury on Wednesday or in the team’s walkthrough before Thursday practice. The Ravens have one more day of practice and then we’ll see the final injury report. Willie Snead gains some value if Brown can’t play, but we’ll hope Brown gets back to practice on Friday.
