Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown told Baltimore Sun beat reporter Aaron Wilson that his absence from practice Wednesday was due to a stiff neck, and he'll be fine and "ready to go" for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.
Brown has ten receptions on 15 targets for 116 yards through the season's first three games, and has two touchdown receptions.
Fantasy impact: If the Ravens are truly back on track - having won their last two games after a season-opening loss against Denver - they'll need a full complement of receivers other than just Torrey Smith, especially with star running back Ray Rice banged up. Brown had decent-but-not-flashy games in his first two, but was basically a no-show in Week 3.
This injury, or lack thereof, doesn't appear to be much of a concern for the Ravens or for fantasy owners; Wednesday might well have just been a scheduled day off that coincided with a stiff neck. Either way, with Jacoby Jones still out for a while, Brown will need to show up bigger going forward.
