After passing his conditioning test last week, Brown has since passed his physical. The Oklahoma-produced deep threat has been rehabbing a Lisfranc injury since before the Combine. Brown, who underwent foot surgery in January, is now on track to play in each of Baltimore’s preseason games, Hensley adds (on Twitter).
This is welcome news for a Ravens team that has a few new skill-position contributors around a developing quarterback. John Harbaugh recently said this new Ravens offense will “change the way offensive football is played in the National Football League.” Brown stands to play a major role in that lofty aspiration coming to fruition.
Brown joins Mark Ingram and third-round pick Miles Boykin as key Ravens newcomers. But the former Sooner represents the team’s top offseason investment. He posted two 1,000-yard seasons at Oklahoma and averaged north of 17 yards per catch in each.
