Player Outlook
With DeAndre Hopkins gone, Brown has an excellent chance to be the true No. 1 for the Cardinals. Now we just have to figure out who is throwing him the ball. Last year, Brown played six games with Kyler Murray and without Hopkins. In those games, he was on a 17-game pace for 122 catches, 1,374 yards, and eight touchdowns on 181 targets. With Kliff Kingsbury gone, we don't expect that type of pass volume in Arizona, but if Murray gets healthy, Brown would absolutely be ranked as a starter. For now, with Murray still uncertain for the start of the season, we ranked Brown as a No. 3 receiver who should be drafted in Round 6 or 7.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Officially on injured reserve

    The Cardinals officially placed Brown (heel) on injured reserve Friday. Coach Jonathan Gannon announced the pending transaction earlier Friday, per Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site, and Brown now will miss the final two games of the campaign. Most of Brown's 2023 output occurred with Joshua Dobbs and Clayton Tune under center, as he mustered only a 9-134-0 line on 24 targets (of his 51-574-4 on 101 targets overall) after Kyler Murray made his season debut Week 10. A heel injury is to blame for Brown's abbreviated season, capping him at 14 appearances, with the final two including early departures. He's an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so it remains to be seen if he'll be retained by Arizona or otherwise opt to move elsewhere.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Being placed on IR

    Coach Jonathan Gannon said Friday that Brown (heel) will be placed on injured reserve, ending his 2023 campaign, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Brown will miss the remainder of the 2023 campaign due to a heel injury that caused him to miss Week 16 and log early exits in the Cardinals' previous two games. That ends the worst statistical season of the 26-year-old's career in which he secured 51 of 101 targets for 574 yards and four touchdowns while also rushing twice for 23 yards. Granted, part of that context can be explained by Brown playing without Kyler Murray (illness) for the first nine games of the season, then working through injury in the second half. As a pending unrestricted free agent, though, Brown's modest numbers in 2023 could impact the team's decision to pursue a new contract or let him walk.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Still not practicing

    Brown (heel) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Brown may be trending toward a second absence in a row due to a lingering heel injury that caused early exits from his last two appearances in Weeks 13 and 15. However, he'll have one more chance to get in his first on-field work of Week 17 prep before the Cardinals potentially make a decision on his availability for Sunday's game at Philadelphia. If Brown is out again this weekend, Michael Wilson, Rondale Moore and Zach Pascal will be the top available options at wide receiver for the team's offense.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Held out of Wednesday's practice

    Brown (heel) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Brown has yet to log any on-field work since aggravating his heel injury in the second half of a Week 15 loss to the 49ers. Since he exited early in both of his last two appearances for the same reason, the Cardinals clearly are having the wide receiver focus on rehab with the hope he'll be able to make an appearance in one or both of the final two weeks of the campaign. Regardless, kicking off Week 17 prep with no activity doesn't leave Brown with much leeway ahead of Sunday's game at Philadelphia.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Out this week

    Brown (heel) is ruled out for Sunday's game at Chicago, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Coach Jonathan Gannon made multiple comments earlier this week about hoping to get Brown back before the end of the season, but a decision to rule the wide receiver out for Week 16 before Friday's practice even starts isn't the most encouraging development. Brown made early exits Week 13 and 15 -- sandwiched around a Week 14 bye -- and he's now missed every practice ahead of Week 16. The most likely beneficiaries in terms of additional WR snaps/targets are Michael Wilson, Rondale Moore, Greg Dortch and Zach Pascal, though Dortch missed practice Wednesday and Thursday due to a shoulder injury. Brown's next chance to play is Dec. 31 at Philadelphia.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Still sidelined at practice

    Brown (heel) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports. Brown has made early exits from the Cardinals' last two games Weeks 13 and 15 due to a heel injury that has lingered since Week 12 prep. It appears he's focusing on rehab of the issue versus practice with the hope he'll play again at some point over the final three contests of the campaign. Whether Brown is able to suit up Sunday in Chicago remains to be seen, but the team could clear up his status as soon as it posts the final Week 16 practice report Friday.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Not seen at practice Thursday

    Brown (heel) wasn't spotted during the media-access portion of Thursday's practice, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports. If Brown indeed misses practice for a second day in a row, he'll have just one more opportunity to mix into drills this week before the Cardinals potentially make a ruling on his availability ahead of Sunday's game at Chicago. Fellow wide receiver Greg Dortch (shoulder) also wasn't seen on the practice field Thursday, meaning Michael Wilson, Rondale Moore and Zach Pascal are the healthy options at the position on Arizona's active roster.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Not at practice

    Brown (heel) isn't practicing Wednesday, Bo Brack of GoPHNX.com reports. Arizona head coach Jonathan Gannon already acknowledged that Brown is uncertain to play Sunday at Chicago, though the Cardinals don't anticipate placing him on injured reserve this week. The wide receiver didn't play after halftime in Arizona's past two games, as he aggravated his lingering heel injury during the second quarter of both contests. A Week 14 bye sandwiched between those games didn't seem to help Brown move past the issue, and at this point, he'll be an extremely risky fantasy option even if he manages to play Week 16.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Uncertain for Week 16

    Cardinals head coach Jonathan Gannon said Wednesday that Brown's (heel) status is up in the air for Sunday's game against the Bears, Bo Brack of GoPHNX.com reports. Brown has suited up in all 14 of the Cardinals' games to date, but the wideout is coming off consecutive games in which he handled significantly less than a full share of snaps and finished without a single reception. Though the Cardinals are reportedly optimistic that Brown won't miss time, clarity on his status for Sunday's game likely won't come until the team has had a chance to evaluate him in practice.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Unlikely to land on IR

    Coach Jonathan Gannon said Monday that Brown (heel) likely won't be placed on injured reserve, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports. Brown has had back-to-back abbreviated outings (Weeks 13 and 15) due to a lingering heel injury and hasn't recorded a catch since Week 12. Still, the Cardinals are holding off on shutting him down for the season, which a move to IR would result in. With the team now set to prepare for Sunday's visit to Chicago, Brown won't be listed on a practice report until Wednesday, but if he requires any absences down the stretch, Arizona will need to lean on Michael Wilson, Rondale Moore, Greg Dortch and Zach Pascal at wide receiver.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Aggravates heel injury

    Brown departed Sunday's game against the 49ers with a heel injury, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Brown dealt with a heel injury prior to each of the Cardinals' last three contests, and he now has exited early for a second straight game. If he's unable to return, he'll finish Week 15 with no targets on his ledger.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Expected to play Week 15

    Brown (heel), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, is expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Coming out of the Cardinals' Week 14 bye, Brown failed to practice Wednesday but returned to the field Thursday and Friday as a limited participant. Though head coach Jonathan Gannon has acknowledged that Brown's painful heel injury requires regular management, the wideout nonetheless appears poised to play through the health concern Sunday. Official word on Brown's status will arrive when Arizona unveils its inactive list 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, but even though he's expected to play, the receiver could be at risk of an in-game setback.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Practicing again

    Brown (heel) is practicing Friday, Jose Romero of The Arizona Republic reports. Brown played through the heel injury and handled full workloads Weeks 11 and 12, but he then missed most of the second half of a Week 13 win over Pittsburgh and initially was held out of practice when the Cardinals came back from a Week 14 bye. He returned to practice Thursday and now is participating again Friday, suggesting he'll at least try to play this Sunday against the 49ers.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Limited in return to practice

    Brown (heel) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Jose M. Romero of The Arizona Republic reports. Brown played through a heel injury in the Cardinals' previous two games, but he left the last one early Week 13 at Pittsburgh and wasn't able to return. Even with the benefit of a Week 14 bye, he didn't take part as the team reconvened for practice Wednesday, but his return to some drills one day later keeps the door ajar for him to be available Sunday against the 49ers. Friday's practice report will reveal whether or not Brown enters the weekend with an injury designation for Week 15 action.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Back at practice Thursday

    Brown (heel) returned to practice Thursday, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports. Prior to the Cardinals' Week 14 bye, Brown tended to a heel injury during Week 12 and 13 prep, but he suited up on both occasions. Still, he exited the latter contest in Pittsburgh during the third quarter and was unable to return. With the benefit of the recent respite and no activity at Wednesday's session, Brown now appears to be putting himself in a position to be available Sunday against the 49ers, though his activity level in Arizona's second Week 15 session won't be known until later Thursday.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: No return to practice yet

    Brown (heel) isn't practicing Wednesday, Bo Brack of GoPHNX.com reports. Head coach Jonathan Gannon suggested Monday that Brown likely would practice this week, after having a Week 14 bye to heal up following an early exit from the Cardinals' Week 13 win over Pittsburgh. Brown is tending to the same heel injury that he played through for multiple weeks before he experienced a setback in Pittsburgh, and he'll still have two more chances to practice prior to Sunday's matchup with San Francisco.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Expected to practice this week

    Coach Jonathan Gannon noted Monday that all signs point to Brown (heel) being able to practice this week, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports. Brown exited the Cardinals' Week 13 win over the Steelers due to a heel injury, but the wideout appears to have benefited from the team's subsequent bye week. Assuming Brown is indeed able to practice without issue in the coming days, he'll have a chance to suit up Sunday against the 49ers, who sit atop the NFC West standings with a 10-3 record.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Exits early Sunday

    Brown left Sunday's contest at Pittsburgh due to a heel injury. Brown didn't practice during Week 13 prep due to a heel issue, so he may have aggravated it upon his departure in the third quarter. If he's unable to return, he'll end Sunday's game with no catches on three targets. With Michael Wilson (shoulder) and Zach Pascal (personal) inactive, Rondale Moore, Greg Dortch, Andre Baccellia and Dan Chisena are left as the Cardinals' healthy and available wide receivers.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Active in Week 13

    Brown (heel) is active for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh. Brown was held out of drills during the entirety of Week 13 prep due to a heel injury, but coach Jonathan Gannon relayed to Bo Brack of GoPHNX.com on Friday that the wideout was "trending in the right direction" to play Sunday. Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network eventually reported an expectation that Brown would be able to do so, and his availability now has been confirmed. Brown thus will be taking on a Steelers defense that has yielded the eighth-most yards per target (8.6) to opposing wide receivers this season.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Expected to play vs. Steelers

    Brown (heel) is listed as questionable but is expected to play in Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Brown didn't practice in any capacity Week 13 due to a heel injury, but the expectation is nonetheless that Arizona will have him on the field for Sunday's contest. Despite missing two of three practices during Week 12 prep, Brown proceeded to suit up for the Cardinals' 37-14 loss to the Rams and turned in a six-catch, 88-yard performance on 12 targets. He remains an intriguing fantasy option as long as he manages to avoid the Cardinals' inactive list, which will be released 90 minutes ahead of Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff.
