Update: Brown’s timetable to return has grown smaller since the first report that he could be out for the season. Today, head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that Brown would be out “at least a month.” This tracks with Ian Rapoport’s report of 6 weeks, but maybe opens a slightly earlier return window for the receiver..
Update: Brown will likely miss six weeks with fracture instead of the season, per Ian Rapoport.
Some good news for #AZCardinals WR Hollywood Brown: Following the MRI, his foot isn’t as bad as was initially thought. It’s a small, non-surgical fracture, source said. Recovery time is about 6 weeks. He’s getting a second opinion from Dr. Robert Anderson before moving forward.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 17, 2022
Monday update: The Cardinals believe Brown has suffered a potentially season-ending foot injury, which is likely why they made a deal for Robbie Anderson. Further testing will determine the extent of the injury but it’s not great news for Brown after a strong start to the year.

Update: Initial X-rays on Brown’s foot came back negative, although he’ll get more testing done Monday. The receiver was in a walking boot after the game so clearly there’s some pain there. The Cardinals play Thursday in Week 7, which makes it tough to see how Brown can go in that game unless the pain goes away quickly in his foot.

The Arizona Cardinals lost an ugly one to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6, and they might have suffered another loss. Wide receiver Marquise Brown injured his leg and after limping off the field with trainers left for the locker room. Field Yates reported it looked like Brown was rolled up on and could not put weight on his ankle.
Brown suffered the injury with 3:59 left in the game on a 4th down pass attempt. Kyler Murray was looking for Brown deep in Seahawks territory, but the pass was intercepted. Brown was injured on the pick and he did not return for the Cardinals final drive.

The Cardinals host the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football this week. The team will have light practices Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and it’s safe to say Brown will show up as a DNP on Monday’s first report, if not all three.
