The Buffalo Bills have designated wide receiver John Brown to return from injured reserved, as reported by Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network. Sidelined with an ankle injury, Brown is expected to begin practicing this week, as indicated by head coach Sean McDermott.
Brown last played Nov. 15 in a matchup with the Arizona Cardinals.
In eight games this season, Brown accounted for a 17 percent target market share, behind only Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley. Since Brown’s absence, rookie Gabriel Davis has become a more prominent fixture in the Bills’ receiving corp and Cole Beasley has seen an increase in production.
The return signifies an added weapon for Josh Allen, especially in the red zone. This season, Brown has been targeted seven times in the red zone.
Late-week news will confirm whether Brown is available for a Saturday matchup with the Denver Broncos. Currently the Bills are a 7-point favorite on FanDuel Sportsbook. If Brown is active, he is priced at $5,300 on Fanduel’s two-game Saturday Slate.
