The Baltimore Ravens’ first-round pick, wide receiver Marquise Brown, is expected to play against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. 

Brown didn’t practice on Friday, but it doesn’t look like that will play a role in what he does Sunday. The former Oklahoma Sooner is coming back from Lisfranc surgery done prior to the 2019 NFL Draft. It forced him out of OTAs and most of training camp.

Missing practice on Friday wasn’t a setback for Brown, according to head coach John Harbaugh. The coach said on Friday:

“He’ll play in the game.”

It appears as if Brown’s first NFL game will be close to home. “Hollywood” Brown comes from Hollywood, Florida; only 22 miles separates Hollywood from Miami. His quarterback, Lamar Jackson, also hails from the Miami area, as he’s from Pompano Beach, Florida.

Though in enemy territory, Brown expects a big turnout to support himself and Jackson, as he said via the Ravens official website:

“Broward County, they’re supporting me and Lamar [Jackson] to the fullest. We might have more fans than the Dolphins out there.”

Luckily, Brown will likely play in front of his hometown. Those in relation should be ecstatic, as well as Ravens fans watching from home.

A speed merchant, Brown is expected to give Jackson easy targets deep down the field and turn screens, slants, and anything else into big-time plays. Now, he’ll have the opportunity to just that for the first time in his NFL career in front of a supportive audience.
