John Brown out of Cardinals practice, in concussion protocol

Over the last week, the Cardinals have seen cornerback Mike Jenkins break a bone in his hand and defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche sprain his ankle.

The list of injured players continues to grow. Wide receiver John Brown is out of practice on Monday after suffering a concussion on Sunday. Brown is now in the league’s concussion protocol and will need to pass the exams that make it up before he’ll be allowed to resume a practice schedule with the team.

With more than a month to go until the start of the regular season, Brown should be able to navigate through the protocol with time to spare although it will be something of greater concern if his absence lasts into next week.

Brown had 65 catches for 1,003 yards and seven touchdowns last season, but the Cardinals remain well-stocked at receiver with Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson in action.

  1. Really? Why is this undersized player with a game predicated on speed being exposed to contact in camp? They are also considering letting him return kicks. Really? How did that work for Honey Badger? Quit doing stupid things that hurt players. Get a kick returner. Stop using premier players to return kicks!

  2. He did not get hurt returning a kick. He got got hurt doing what WR do in camp and in practice. He was playing football and landed awkwardly while making a catch.

    Pretty sure you’re thinking of David Johnson. John brown is a wr, which I would assume you would know because of your self described high iq

    I know why you’re sad. Your team won less games than the Cardinals last year.
