The Houston Texans will host the Denver Broncos for their Week 13 matchup this Sunday and they could be getting one of their top receiving weapons back on the field. Wide receiver Noah Brown has missed the past two games with a knee injury, but is trending towards making his return for this showdown.
Noah Brown injury updates
Friday update: Brown is officially questionable and appears to be a game-time decision, per Aaron Wilson. Tank Dell is also questionable, but appears ready to go this weekend.
Thursday update: Brown logged another limited participation in practice on Friday.
Wednesday PM update: Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 in Houston reported that Brown returned to practice on Wednesday. He completely missed practice all of last week, so this is a good early sign that he’ll suit up.
Fantasy football analysis
Brown had become a very dangerous weapon for rookie quarterback CJ Stroud prior to the knee injury and both the team and fantasy managers alike will be delighted to have him back on the field. In games against the Buccaneers and Bengals, he combined for 13 receptions, 225 yards, and a touchdown, ranking as a top 10 fantasy wideout in both weeks. Given his production, he should be a solid Flex option even with Tank Dell also flourishing at the moment.
