Ravens WR Marquise Brown is progressing well and should return in a few weeks
The Baltimore Ravens placed four players on the reserve/NFI list yesterday, including first-round wide receiver Marquise Brown. Although he was placed on the reserve list, all indications for Brown point to the wide receiver being able to participate in the team’s training camp, albeit a bit later than most.
Hollywood Brown is progressing well and should be back on the field in a few weeks, I’m told. As for Jaylon Ferguson, it’s a minor hamstring https://t.co/8ZZzK1zz1N

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Brown is progressing well and should be back on the field in a few weeks. Brown hasn’t been able to do much this offseason, as he’s still recovering from his Lisfranc surgery. The surgery stems from a foot injury that Brown suffered during the Big 12 Championship Game for Oklahoma.
Brown has since lost the boot that his foot was on, and he has begun some light running and other activities, but he hasn’t been able to do too much else, it seems. While the foot injury might have impacted some of his draft stock, the promise of the athlete that Brown can be certainly didn’t. Not only was he still a first-round selection, but the Ravens will be looking at Brown to be a heavy contributor once he is able to step onto the field.
In the meantime, the Ravens will begin preparing for their 2019 season without him, as their training camp is set to kick off on July 25. This will mark the first training camp of Lamar Jackson’s career where he’ll be the de facto starter, so any and all reps that he can get with his offense will be needed, especially as the team begins to implement a new offensive scheme going into this year.
