Cardinals placing WR Marquise Brown (heel) on IR

The Arizona Cardinals are shutting down wide receiver Marquise Brown for the season.

Head coach Jonathan Gannon said Friday that Brown will be placed on injured reserve with a heel injury.

Brown caught 51 passes for 574 yards and four touchdowns in 14 starts this season for the Cardinals (3-12).

The 2019 first-round pick has 313 catches for 3,644 yards and 28 TDs in 72 games (65 starts) with the Baltimore Ravens (2019-21) and Cardinals.

Brown, 26, earned $13.4 million this season on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal. He is due to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (foot) returns to practice

The Arizona Cardinals designated wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown for return from injured reserve Wednesday, opening his 21-day practice window.

Brown sustained a small non-surgical fracture in his foot on the final play of the game Oct. 16 against Seattle. Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Wednesday that there’s a “chance” Brown will be activated to play Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.

As for which quarterback could potentially throw to Brown on Monday, Kingsbury said he hopes to have one of them — starter Kyler Murray or backup Colt McCoy — ready to go. The coach said both QBs remain day-to-day.

Murray missed last Sunday with a hamstring injury. McCoy earned the start, but he, too, left the game with a leg injury. Trace McSorley came on to close out the 27-17 win for the Cardinals.

“He’s progressed well,” Kingsbury said Wednesday regarding Murray. “He’s still getting treatment on it. We want him to be 100 percent when he’s out there, particularly against this defensive line. So I won’t have a feel for that until later in the week.”

Brown, 25, has 43 catches for 485 yards and three touchdowns in six games (all starts).

The Cardinals acquired Robbie Anderson from Carolina to bolster the team’s wide receiver corps in Brown’s absence. Anderson, however, has one catch for minus-4 yards in four games (one start) for the Cardinals.

Kingsbury also confirmed reports from earlier in the week that tight end Zach Ertz will miss the rest of the season. Ertz was carted off during last week’s win over the Los Angeles Rams after sustaining a leg injury.

The Cardinals on Wednesday also signed offensive lineman Julien Davenport and tight end Chris Pierce Jr. to their practice squad.

Cards put Marquise Brown on IR; Saints to start Andy Dalton

The Arizona Cardinals elevated kicker Rodrigo Blankenship to the active roster ahead of Thursday night’s game against New Orleans and placed two players on injured reserve, including wide receiver Marquise Brown.

Meanwhile, the Saints are reportedly going to start Andy Dalton over Jameis Winston, who will be the emergency quarterback against the Cardinals. Taysom Hill will back up Dalton, according to ESPN.

The Cardinals also put offensive lineman Just Pugh on IR with a torn ACL. He’s out for the season.

Brown (foot) will have to miss at least four games but it’s expected he’ll be out longer than that anyway, perhaps six weeks. Brown was injured on the final play of the game in last Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks. He suffered a small non-surgical fracture in his foot.

The elevation of Blankenship means Matt Prater will miss a third straight game with a hip injury. The Cardinals also elevated running back Corey Clement to the active roster. Starting RB James Conner (ribs) is a gametime decision.

The Cardinals also activated OL Cody Ford from IR and it’s possible he’ll be active against the Saints. Ford, 25, began the season on IR. He played in 38 games (29 starts) from 2019-21 with the Buffalo Bills, who traded him to the Cardinals on Aug. 22 for a 2023 fifth-round draft pick.

The Cardinals have also ruled out LB Dennis Gardeck (ankle), C Rodney Hudson (knee) and RB Darrel Williams (knee).

The Saints are also without a host of players for Thursday night. Guard Andrus Peat is considered week-to-week with a pectoral strain and has been ruled out against the Cardinals.

Also ruled out for the game are wide receivers Michael Thomas (foot) and Jarvis Landry (ankle) cornerback Marshon Lattimore (abdomen) and tight end Adam Trautman (ankle)

Cornerback Paulson Adebo, tackle Calvin Throckmorton and defensive end Payton Turner are all questionable.

Additionally, the Saints cut wide receiver Keith Kirkwood, activated defensive back Alontae Taylor (knee) from injured reserve and elevated receiver Kevin White and cornerback Chris Harris Jr. from the practice squad ahead of Thursday’s game.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (foot) out indefinitely

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown is out at least a month with a foot injury sustained in last week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury delivered the timeline to reporters Wednesday after Brown sought out a second opinion.

“We’ll evaluate it and go from there,” Kingsbury said Wednesday.

Kingsbury also said there will be some gametime decisions for Thursday’s matchup against the New Orleans Saints, including running back James Conner (ribs) and kicker Matt Prater (right hip).

Offensive lineman Rodney Hudson (knee) and linebacker Dennis Gardeck (ankle) were ruled out for Thursday.

Brown was injured on the final play of the game in last Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks. He suffered a small non-surgical fracture, NFL Network reported Monday, adding Brown would miss roughly six weeks.

The team originally feared Brown might miss the rest of the season.

To fill Brown’s spot, the Cardinals acquired Robbie Anderson from the Carolina Panthers on Monday. Also, DeAndre Hopkins returned from the suspended list Monday and was added to the 53-man roster.

Brown had 43 catches for 485 yards and three touchdowns in six games, all starts.

Anderson has caught 13 of his 27 targets this season for 206 yards and one touchdown in six games. Over seven seasons with the New York Jets (2016-19) and Panthers, he has 368 receptions for 4,880 yards and 29 scores in 101 games (84 starts).

All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins returns as Cards lose Marquise Brown

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins returned from the suspended list Monday and could be back on the field Thursday night when the New Orleans Saints roll into town.

And for 2-4 Arizona, the help couldn’t be more timely.

“He’s gonna be anxious to get the ball in his hands and be super competitive. We need him to lift us up, there’s no question, with how we’re playing right now,” Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said.

Hopkins also returns as the Cardinals lost top receiver Marquise Brown (foot) to injury and already were playing without running backs James Conner (ribs) and Darrel Williams (knee).

Brown was injured on the final play of the game in the loss to the Seahawks. He’s expected to miss six weeks with a small non-surgical fracture, NFL Network reported. The team feared Brown might miss the rest of the season.

The Cardinals also fear starting left guard Justin Pugh is done for the season with a knee injury suffered Sunday, according to NFL Network.

To fill Brown’s spot, the Cardinals acquired Robbie Anderson from the Carolina Panthers. Anderson was kicked out of the Panthers’ game with the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday by interim head coach Steve Wilks.

The Cardinals confirmed the deal Monday, adding the trade is contingent upon Anderson passing a physical. The Cardinals are sending Carolina a sixth-round pick in 2024 and a seventh-round pick in 2025, per ESPN.

The Cardinals officially added Hopkins to the active roster and released kicker Matt Ammendola.

Even with Anderson, Hopkins represents the potential cavalry amid a streak of three losses in four games and on the heels of producing only three field goals at Seattle in a 19-9 loss on Sunday.

Kyler Murray was sacked six times by the Seahawks, who entered the game ranked 32nd in scoring defense.

With Hopkins for 10 games last season, Murray was 8-2, completed 72 percent of his passes and had a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 19-9.

In 10 games without the five-time Pro Bowler since the start of the 2021 season, Murray is 3-7 with a completion percentage of 64 and an 11-6 TD-INT ratio.

Anderson, 29, did not have any catches in Sunday’s 24-10 loss to the Rams. Wilks sent him to the locker room late in the third quarter after Anderson got in a heated argument with position coach Joe Dailey.

“No one is bigger than the team,” Wilks said after the loss, which dropped Carolina to 1-5. “I’m not going to focus and put a lot of attention on one individual.”

Anderson has caught 13 of his 27 targets this season for 206 yards and one touchdown in six games. Over seven seasons with the New York Jets (2016-19) and Panthers, he has 368 receptions for 4,880 yards and 29 scores in 101 games (84 starts).

Pugh, 32, is in his sixth season in Arizona. He’s having additional testing done to ascertain the severity of his injury. He has started all but one of his 57 games with the Cardinals. Drafted No. 19 overall in 2013 by the New York Giants, Pugh has started 119 of 120 games in his 10-year career.

Marquise Brown arrested for criminal speeding

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown was arrested Wednesday morning on charges of criminal speeding.

The arrest comes one day after Brown returned to the active roster after recovering from a hamstring injury. He had been on the non-football injury list since the start of training camp.

“We are aware of the situation regarding Hollywood Brown and have reported it to the NFL office as required. We will comment further as appropriate,” the Cardinals said in a statement.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety told Arizona Sports 98.7 that Brown was arrested at 7:05 a.m. local time driving in the HOV lane on Loop 101.

Criminal speeding in Arizona is driving in excess of 85 mph, exceeding the speed limit by 20 mph or more, or exceeding 35 mph in a school zone.

Brown is entering his first season with the Cardinals after a draft-night trade with the Baltimore Ravens in April.

Brown has 195 career catches for 2,361 yards and 21 touchdowns in 46 games (41 starts) for the Ravens. He was selected No. 25 overall by Baltimore in the 2019 draft.

Cardinals activate WR Marquise Brown

The Arizona Cardinals activated wide receiver Marquise Brown off the non-football injury list on Tuesday.

Brown was nursing a hamstring injury he sustained while running routes away from the team facility.

The 25-year-old Brown was traded from the Baltimore Ravens along with a third-round pick to the Cardinals on April 28 in exchange for the 23rd overall selection of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Brown was the Ravens’ first-round selection in the 2019 draft, and he played three seasons with quarterback Lamar Jackson in Baltimore. He posted his first 1,000-yard season in 2021 when he caught 91 passes for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games (all starts).

He has 195 catches for 2,361 yards and 21 touchdowns in 46 career games (41 starts) with the Ravens.

Ravens deal WR Marquise Brown to Cards, net first-round pick

The Baltimore Ravens sent wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown and a third-round draft pick to the Arizona Cardinals to acquire an additional first-round choice, according to multiple media reports Thursday night.

The Ravens used the 14th overall pick on Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton, then moved back into the first round by acquiring the 23rd overall pick from Arizona.

Brown was the Ravens’ first-round selection in the 2019 draft, and he played three seasons with quarterback Lamar Jackson in Baltimore. He posted his first 1,000-yard season in 2021 when he caught 91 passes for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games (all starts).

The trade was unexpected, with Brown figuring to be Baltimore’s No. 1 receiver in 2022.

In Arizona, Brown will be reunited with his college quarterback, Kyler Murray. Murray and Brown spent two seasons together at Oklahoma, where Murray compiled 2,413 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns in 27 career games.

The Cardinals and Murray had a turbulent offseason, with Murray’s camp demanding a contract extension and an ESPN report indicating that the team had concerns Murray was “self-centered” and “immature.”

Lamar Jackson questionable for Ravens vs. Rams

Lamar Jackson could make his return from injury Sunday for the Baltimore Ravens.

Jackson is listed as questionable on Baltimore’s injury report for the game against the visiting Los Angeles Rams despite sitting out the last two days of practice with an ongoing ankle injury.

Jackson injured the ankle in Week 14, a loss to the Cleveland Browns, and missed the past two games. The 2019 NFL MVP was limited in practice Wednesday before sitting out the following two days.

“I think he’s got a chance to play on Sunday,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh told reporters. “We’ll have to see. This time of year … it’s all hands on deck. Guys who are ready to play and can play will.”

If Jackson can’t go, the Ravens will turn to Tyler Huntley to start at quarterback. Huntley started in Week 15 in a 31-30 loss to the Green Bay Packers, but COVID-19 forced him to miss last week’s 41-21 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, when third-stringer Josh Johnson took the reins.

Huntley came off the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday and returned to practice.

Jackson, 24, has thrown for 2,882 yards with 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 12 games this season. He also has rushed 767 yards and two scores.

Baltimore (8-7) also ruled out two players for the Rams game: cornerback Anthony Averett (ribs, chest) and guard Ben Powers (foot). Other players deemed questionable include receiver Marquise Brown (non-COVID illness), receiver Devin Duvernay (ankle) and fullback Patrick Ricard (knee). Linebacker Odafe Oweh (foot) is doubtful.

Ravens activate three WRs from reserve/COVID-19 list

Three days after placing the three receivers on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Baltimore Ravens activated Marquise Brown, Miles Boykin and James Proche on Saturday.

All three are on track to play when the Ravens (8-5) host the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-12) on Sunday afternoon.

None of the players tested positive for the coronavirus but were placed on the list as close contacts of an infected individual, coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday.

Brown, who is tied for the team lead with 43 catches and has a team-leading 605 receiving yards, scored a crucial touchdown in the Ravens’ 47-42 victory over Cleveland on Monday night.

Boykin has 16 receptions for 206 yards, while Proche is averaging 8.3 yards on 21 punt returns.

Baltimore activated wideout Dez Bryant from the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier this week.
