LB - FA
Week 3 Outlook
Bengals linebacker Preston Brown was placed on injured reserve Tuesday due to a knee injury. His season is over.
Brown injured the knee in Week 10’s loss to the Saints and did not practice or play last week. He finishes his season with 42 tackles and two interceptions. He will be a free agent in March.
The Bengals have ruled out linebacker Preston Brown (knee) for Sunday’s game against the Ravens.
Brown hurt the knee in the third quarter of the loss to the Saints and was seen wearing a large brace during the week. The Bengals linebacking corps is in rough shape as Nick Vigil (knee) was also ruled out and Vontaze Burfict (hip) is questionable. Burfict and Vigil have already missed multiple weeks with their injuries.
Bengals linebacker Preston Brown did not practice Wednesday due to a knee injury. He was seen wearing a large brace on his right knee but would not comment on the injury, only saying "Coach (Marvin Lewis) said I can't speak about injuries."
Brown hurt the knee in the third quarter of the loss to the Saints but stayed in the game. The Bengals linebacking corps is in rough shape as Nick Vigil (knee) also sat out Wednesday and Vontaze Burfict (hip) and Vincent Rey (groin) were limited. Burfict and Vigil have already missed multiple weeks.
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Preston Brown worked out like a cornerback with defensive backs coach Preston Hale III over the winter in Chandler, Arizona in an effort to pick off more passes.
Brown, 25, spent the past four seasons with Buffalo and logged 512 combined tackles in 64 games played with the Bills. While Brown only picked off three passes during his time with the Bills, the pairing with new Bengals defensive coordinator Teryl Austin affords the linebacker to take more calculated chances intercepting the football.
Preston Brown was good in limited action on Saturday, racking up seven tackles, six of which were solo.
Brown will be on the field frequently for the Bills, as their starting MLB in Sean McDermott's defense. He should be on the radar as a viable IDP LB who should rack up the tackles.
