Player Notes
Jul 23 1:43pm ET

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown checked into the team's first practice of the season at 185 pounds, up 12 pounds from last season.

Jul 16 12:33am ET

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown will be the main beneficiary of the departure of Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd, according to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo! Sports. Floyd accounted for 88 targets for the Cardinals last season.

Jun 7 6:40pm ET

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver John Brown is nursing a tweaked hamstring at organized team activities, according to head coach Bruce Arians. The 5-foot-11 speedster was a huge disappointment in 2016 with a career-low 39 catches for 517 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games, but he dealt with a sickle-cell trait that sapped him of his energy and explosiveness. Now back and fully healthy, the 27-year-old is prime for a bounce-back season as a deep threat as the No. 2 wideout in what should be a productive offense if Carson Palmer can stay healthy. Look for Brown to be one of the better value receivers in fantasy drafts.

Jun 7 4:13pm ET

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) is dealing with a hamstring injury, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Jun 3 11:43pm ET

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown is back to running routes like he did in 2015, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'A couple of those routes he ran, he did not run one route like that last year,' Arians said. 'Knock on wood, it stays that way.'

Fantasy Spin: Brown is looking like a great rebound candidate for the coming year.

May 19 12:50pm ET

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians has noticed the difference in wide receiver John Brown this offseason. "Smoke looks like John Brown," Arians said. Brown has been showing his speed and explosiveness that he lacked in 2016 when he dealt with a sickle cell trait and a cyst near his spine. There is plenty of optimism that Brown can return to being the player that posted a 65-1,003-7 line in 2015. The 27-year-old is a prime sleeper candidate as a bounce-back player in 2017, and his downfield prowess should open up Arizona's offense much more.

May 17 1:00am ET

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver John Brown said he felt "normal" after doctors drained a cyst found on his spine after the season. Brown also dealt with a sickle cell trait that led to leg pain and fatigue during the 2016 season when he finished with a disappointing 39 catches (career low) for 517 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games. He was unable to eat much or lift weights last year. Head coach Bruce Arians has noticed that Brown is already running routes in offseason workouts that he didn't last year because of his health issues. Quarterback Carson Palmer said Brown "has a different energy about him." The 27-year-old wideout looks to be one of the more obvious bounce-back candidates and should be a value pick that could easily return to or eclipse his 2015 numbers (65-1,003-7).

May 5 11:50am ET

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver John Brown, who struggled through issues related to his sickle-cell trait in 2016, said doctors also found a cyst on his spine after the last game of the year. After that situation was taken care of, Brown said everything was back to normal, and he's confident his health issues are behind him. Smoke blew up for a career-high 65 catches for 1,0003 yards and seven touchdowns in 2015 but disappointed with a career-low 39 receptions for just 517 yards and two scores last year as he struggled to gain separation from defenders. With full health this season, Brown could be a sleeper selection as a home run threat in Arizona's offense. He'd be well worth a late-round flier if he proves his issues are behind him in training camp.

May 4 5:13pm ET

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (back) had a cyst removed from his spine following the final game of last season. Brown had been dealing with a sickle cell trait last season and his production suffered because of it. After the cyst was removed, though, he was back to normal. Brown said his body has been feeling better and he's back in his normal routine and back to being himself.

Fantasy Spin: Brown is a good buy-low candidate for fantasy teams this year. He could have a much better season now that he is healthy.

Apr 2 7:03pm ET

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) has been working out twice a day and has not dealt with any symptoms related to his sickle cell trait, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Feb 14 11:13pm ET

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) is now 'very healthy,' according to team president and owner Michael Bidwill, who also said that it 'looks like they found the issue' regarding the sickle cell problem the receiver was dealing with this past season. Bidwill added: 'We'll get (Brown) back the way we had him.'
