Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) returned to practice on Monday. He's been on and off the field all summer, so we'll see how he's able to hold up now. A healthy Brown should still be Arizona's #2 WR and bring plenty of weekly upside. But his sickle-cell trait makes him 1 of the bigger injury risks at his position. Brown's ADP is sitting in the early 10th round.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said WR John Brown (quad) would be a full-go in Tuesday's practice. Brown didn't feel up to it. "I’m just going to come back when I’m ready,” he said. “My body is different than others. They expect me to come back fast, but I can’t. I’m all right, but I’m not where I want to be at.” This sure sounds like Brown's sickle-cell trait is again making him slow to recover from these leg issues. That wrecked his 2016 season and is certainly a risk factor in 2017. Brown has the potential to be a weekly WR3 -- maybe even better -- but is tough to draft as more than an upside bench stash.

Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) was a full-go in Tuesday's practice, according to HC Bruce Arians. He'd been limited the past couple of weeks. We wonder if Arians reaming out his WR group yesterday had anything to do with Brown's return. Regardless, we'll keep a close eye on his status over the next few weeks. Brown remains a fine shot to take at his 9th-round ADP -- especially if he can stay on the field between now and Week 1.

Cardinals WR John Brown remains hampered by the quad injury he suffered early in training camp. He's been limited to only "certain drills," according to insider Mike Jurecki. Brown, of course, was crushed last season by leg injuries related to his sickle-cell trait. The team reportedly solved that issue, and it's unclear if this quad injury is related. Either way, the missed practice time is not ideal for a guy who could have used a healthy offseason. The good news is that Brown's downside is at least partly negated by his 9th-round price tag.

Cardinals WR John Brown has been sidelined by a quad injury. HC Bruce Arians said he'll be out "a few days, maybe a week." It's unclear if this is at all related to the sickle-cell issue that hampered Brown throughout last season, but it's obviously not a good look for him. We'll see if this lingers beyond Arians' timeline.
