Brown first examined constructive Wednesday. His means to play this weekend hinged on recording two destructive exams 24 hours aside. That did not occur, so he’ll miss Sunday’s sport.
Brown, 33, has turn out to be a stable secondary receiving possibility in Tampa behind Chris Godwin and Mike Evans since becoming a member of the group final October. He performed in each of the group’s first two video games (one begin) this season and had six catches for 138 yards and a landing. He totaled 483 yards and 4 touchdowns in eight video games final 12 months with Tampa Bay.
He signed with the Bucs per week earlier than he was reinstated from an eight-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
SN’s Fantasy Source team projects that tight finish Cameron Brate or broad receivers Tyler Johnson and Scotty Miller will more than likely be the “next man up” in Brown’s absence.
Brate has one catch for 8 yards via the primary two video games. Johnson has one reception for five yards. Miller, Tampa Bay’s No. 3 receiver final 12 months, has no catches or targets in 2021 and has performed simply 20 snaps complete, according to Pro Football Reference.
Brown made his mark in Pittsburgh as one of many league’s high receivers, garnering seven Pro Bowl and 4 All-Pro nods with the Steelers. He led the NFL in receiving yards twice.
Tampa Bay (2-0) enters Sunday main the NFL with 79 factors. A win over the Rams would transfer it right into a first-place tie with the 3-0 Panthers within the NFC South.
