January 15, 2024
The Texans placed Brown (shoulder) on injured reserve Monday.
ANALYSIS
Brown's 2023 season was full of injuries, and the 28-year-old now will be shut down for the remainder of the Texans' postseason run after he sustained the shoulder injury Saturday on the opening drive of Houston's 45-14 win over Cleveland in the wild-card round. When healthy, Brown was productive with a 33-567-2 line on 55 targets over 10 appearances during the regular season, but he missed seven games due to groin, knee and back issues. With Brown sidelined for the divisional round, the Texans will lean even more on Robert Woods, John Metchie and Xavier Hutchinson behind No. 1 wideout Nico Collins. Brown is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason after signing a one-year deal with Houston this past March.

Selected in the seventh round of the 2017 Draft, Brown has gone from a project to a dependable depth option in the Cowboys offense and a key special teams contributor. The Ohio State product had the best game of his career Week 12 of last season, catching six of nine targets for 53 yards, but most weeks he wasn't a factor as a receiver. Even with Amari Cooper gone and Michael Gallup recovering from a torn ACL, Brown may not see his role change significantly in 2022.
A seventh-round pick in 2017, Brown is still only 25 years old and took a small step forward in his development last season, suiting up for all 16 games and handling a big role on special teams while twice reaching 40 receiving yards in a game despite being buried on the depth chart. It would take a rash of injuries for him to move up the ladder, but Brown seems set in his roster spot for at least one more season in Dallas.
Still only 23 years old, Brown has the size to be a red-zone asset but remains a developmental project for the Cowboys after catching only nine passes in his first two NFL seasons.
Brown saw limited action as a rookie, catching only four of nine passes for 33 yards. Still a raw project, the 22-year-old has some upside as a physical receiver and red-zone target and could help fill the void created by Dez Bryant's exit if he can hang onto a roster spot.
Brown's decision to leave Ohio State early caused him to fall to the seventh round in this year's draft, but he does have the size and physical presence to succeed in the NFL once his skills catch up to his athleticism. He's unlikely to see much action as a rookie, but given that he's essentially a Dez Bryant starter kit, Brown landed with the perfect team to help him develop.
