Cowboys’ Anthony Brown Out For Season

Anthony Brown‘s fourth NFL season will end early. The fourth-year cornerback will miss the rest of this season with a triceps tear, Jason Garrett said Monday.

The Cowboys defender will undergo surgery. His contract is set to expire after this season. Brown will finish with 17 tackles and five passes defensed this season.

Brown has not played much on defense in Dallas’ past three games, seeing action on just six combined defensive snaps since Week 9. He previously battled a hamstring injury this season, one that forced him to miss the Cowboys’ first meeting with the Eagles.

A sixth-round pick out of Purdue in 2016, Brown played a more prominent role earlier this season and in previous campaigns. He served as a key nickel performer from 2016-18, starting 30 games in that span. Jourdan Lewis has been given more time in that capacity this season. Both Lewis and Chidobe Awuzie are signed beyond this season, though Byron Jones is not.
