Ravens WR Marquise "Hollywood" Brown Misses Practice

First-round draft pick also missed time following foot surgery

Ravens first-round Marquise "Hollywood" Brown did not practice Aug. 12 for undisclosed reasons.

Brown missed much of the offseason workouts while he was recovering from Lisfranc surgery. Brown gradually began participating in individual drills during training camp. He started taking part in team drills late last week and looked solid.

Ravens' John Harbaugh did not appear overly concerned about Brown's status.

"He’s recovering," Harbaugh said. "All those kinds of things are part of training camp. I’m not going to get into every single guy; why he’s here, why he’s not here. We don’t have any serious injuries. It’s just part of our process."

The Ravens selected Brown with the 25th overall pick and he is expected to provide a new dimension of speed to the offense. Although a bit undersized at 5-9, 166 pounds, Brown can stretch the field and is a n effective route runner.

Last year, he finished with 75 catches for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns for the Oklahoma Sooners.

Brown did not play in the first preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. His status for the second game against Green Bay is uncertain.

Prior to Brown missing practice, Harbaugh had no fully ruled him out against the Packers.

“I don’t know. It’s up to the trainers and the docs, and we’ll see," Harbaugh responded when asked if Brown might be eligible to play.
