  • John Brown: Moves back to practice squad

    Brown reverted to the Bills' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Brown made his fourth appearance of the season for Buffalo during Sunday's wild-card win over Miami. The veteran wideout was sparingly used on offense over his previous three games, though he saw his most significant usage of the season in this postseason tilt, playing 21 of the Bills' 74 offensive snaps behind Stefon Diggs (59), Gabe Davis (56), Cole Beasley (31) and Khalil Shakir (30) with slot receiver Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) inactive. Brown logged one target with a deep shot to the end zone down the right side, but the pass was intercepted by Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard. The 32-year-old Brown could stand to see additional, albeit limited, playing time if McKenzie remains sidelined against Cincinnati this coming Sunday.

  • Bills' John Brown: Playoff opportunity ahead

    Brown was elevated from the Bills' practice squad Saturday.

    The Bills have six wideouts that are now eligible to suit up in Sunday's playoff opener against the Dolphins, but Brown is likely to be one of them given his playoff experience coupled with the fact he caught a long TD pass last week, his first catch since the 2020 season.

  • John Brown: Returns to practice squad

    Brown reverted to the Bills' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Brown capped off his third practice-squad elevation of the season with a bang. The 32-year-old wideout's six offensive snaps were the lowest of any Bills receiver Week 18, though he capitalized when he caught a 42-yard touchdown pass deep down the right sideline late in the third quarter. This was just Brown's second target of the season and his first reception since the 2020 campaign. He should continue to serve as a deep reserve option for Buffalo so long as wideouts Jake Kumerow (ankle) and Jamison Crowder (ankle) remain on IR during the upcoming playoffs.

  • Bills' John Brown: Called up for regular-season finale

    The Bills elevated Brown from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    Brown will be elevated from Buffalo's practice squad for the third time this season with wideouts Jake Kumerow (ankle) and Jamison Crowder (ankle) both still on IR. The 32-year-old Brown logged one target over 15 offensive snaps across his previous two appearances this season, so it's unlikely he'll see a significant workload unless Buffalo opts to rest top wideouts Stefon Diggs, Gabe Davis and/or Isaiah McKenzie during the second half of this Week 18 contest, perhaps unlikely with the Bills playing for the No. 2 seed, unless the game starts to get out of hand.

  • John Brown: Heads back to practice squad

    Brown reverted to the Bills' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Brown was elevated to Buffalo's active roster for the second week in a row to help fill in with Jake Kumerow (ankle) and Jamison Crowder (ankle) both still on IR. While he logged his first target of the 2022 season, the veteran Brown failed to haul in this pass. He also ended up playing fewer offensive snaps (three) than he did during the Bills' 24-10 win over New England in Week 13 (12). Brown will now be eligible for one more elevation from the team's practice squad this season.

  • Bills' John Brown: Bumps up from practice squad again

    The Bills elevated Brown to the active roster Saturday for Sunday's game against the Jets.

    With wideouts Jamison Crowder (ankle) and Jake Kumerow (ankle) still on injured reserve Week 14, Brown will be brought up from the practice squad for the second game in a row. The 32-year-old totaled at least 33 receptions over six of his first seven seasons, including 72 catches (on 115 targets) for 1,060 yards and six touchdowns with Buffalo in 2019. However, Brown has failed to haul in a target since the 2020 campaign, and he did not log a statistic while playing 12 offensive snaps Week 13 versus New England. He'll now be eligible for one more elevation from the Bills' practice squad this season.

  • John Brown: Reverts to practice squad

    Brown reverted to the Bills' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    With Jamison Crowder (ankle), Jake Kumerow (ankle) and Marquez Stevenson (foot) on IR, the Bills elected to elevate Brown from the practice squad to the active roster for Thursday's matchup against New England. However, the veteran wideout didn't garner a target across 12 offensive snaps during his season debut. Brown figures to be a candidate for elevation as long as the aforementioned trio of wideouts remains on IR.

  • Bills' John Brown: Elevated for Week 13

    The Bills elevated Brown from their practice squad ahead of Thursday's game against the Patriots.

    Brown has two seasons of 1,000-plus receiving yards on his resume -- including one with Buffalo in 2019 -- but the 32-year-old wideout hasn't found much recent success while bouncing around the active rosters and practice squads of multiple teams over the last three seasons. He looks as though he could get the chance to make his 2022 debut Thursday while the Bills have three other wideouts on injured reserve (Jamison Crowder, Jake Kumerow and Marquez Stevenson), but Brown likely won't be counted on to play more than a handful of snaps if he's active. Buffalo still has four other receivers on the active roster in Stefon Diggs, Gabe Davis, Isaiah McKenzie and Khalil Shakir, all of whom will presumably be ahead of Brown in the pecking order for reps.
