Oregon HC Mark Helfrich indicated that he believes redshirt senior TE Pharaoh Brown will suit up in 2016.
Helfrich is confident in Brown for the coming season, as is TE coach Tom Osborne, who went so far as to say that he has "no doubt" that the 6-foot-6, 234-pound redshirt senior will be taking the field in 2016. If he can come back, it would be a lovely story. Brown suffered a major non-contact leg injury against Utah in early November, 2014. He subsequently underwent three surgical procedures. Shortly after the injury occurred, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline heard that it could possibly be a career-threatening type of setback. Kudos to Brown for his dedication. He'll still need to receive medical clearance to play, though that could come this summer. Mar 31 - 4:12 PM

Oregon TE coach Tom Osborne says he has "no doubt" that redshirt senior TE Pharaoh Brown will play in 2016.

The 6-foot-6 tight end hasn't played since suffering a catastrophic leg injury against Utah in November 2014. "Oh yeah, I have no doubt he plays this season," Osborne said. "Playing football, that's what motivates him. Because that's his mindset, that creates a work ethic to try and get him healthy enough to play. When you go through what he's gone though, I don't know how many guys will do that. I have no doubt he'll put himself in position to play. No doubt at all." Brown hasn't yet been 100 percent cleared to play, but the hope is that clearance will be granted prior to summer camp. If Brown returns, he'll join a dynamic TE group that includes Johnny Mundt and Evan Baylis.

Oregon senior TE Pharaoh Brown warmed up ahead of the school's bowl game against TCU.

Brown obviously was not going to play, but anytime Brown is on the field it is a step in the right direction. Brown took a medical redshirt this season and is hoping to return to the field in 2016 after suffering a gruesome leg injury in 2014. He has immense talent.

Oregon senior TE Pharaoh Brown plans to use the 2015 season as a medical redshirt and return to school next season.

The conclusion was made based on Brown not participating in Senior Day. The talented tight end suffered a major injury at the end of last season, and some question if he will ever play again. He will look to return to the field in 2016, and when healthy Brown is one of the best tight ends in the country.

Oregon senior TE Pharaoh Brown returned to practice on Monday on a very limited basis.

Brown rehabbed a gruesome leg injury all offseason but was seen running and catching passes this week. The pace of his recovery has been extremely fast, but Brown says it is still too early to know if he will play this season or take a redshirt year. The athletic tight end is one of the best at his position in the country and planned on entering the 2015 NFL Draft.

Oregon senior TE Pharaoh Brown (leg) is a top-50 prospect based on talent, according to NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

There are other considerations, of course, and Brown unfortunately suffered a horrific injury in November against Utah which nearly resulted in a lost right leg. Despite missing five games, Brown was a first-team All-Pac-12 selection with 25 catches for 420 yards and six touchdowns. "If his rehabilitation allows him to resume his career this fall, and he regains the strider's speed and agility that made him one of the top pass-catchers in the country before the injury, expect him to be an early-round pick," Reuter wrote.

Oregon senior TE Pharaoh Brown vows to play football again despite suffering a major leg injury last November.

Brown "underwent three major surgeries to stabilize the leg after a "stretched" artery cut blood flow off below his knee and nearly led to an amputation," Andrew Greif. Brown has been walking under his own power since February. The tight end even revealed he was planning to leave for the NFL following last season, but the injury derailed that. He is a great talent went on the field.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline notes that Oregon junior TE Pharaoh Brown's leg injury "may be career threatening."

"I’m told the injury suffered by Oregon tight end Pharaoh Brown during the Utah game two Saturday’s ago may be career threatening. Brown was hospitalized through the late part of last week before returning home to Cleveland. Sources tell me Brown’s knee suffered significant damage," Pauline wrote. On the season, Brown caught 25 passes for 420 yards, and six touchdowns, while becoming one of Marcus Mariota's most dependable weapons.

Utah HC Kyle Whittingham said he would visit Oregon junior TE Pharaoh Brown in the hospital.

Brown suffered a non-contact leg injury in Saturday's win over Utah. Whittingham said he thought that the turf was "OK," but added that he wasn't a turf expert (if such things exist in the world). Several Utah players also suffered non-contact injuries in the game. Whittingham tried to visit Brown in the hospital after the game, but the junior was in surgery at the time. "I’ll get over there at some point, if not today, the next couple of days," said Whittingham. "[Injuries are the] most unfortunate part of the game, and I feel bad for these kids. They lay it all on the line."

Oregon junior TE Pharaoh Brown will miss the remainder of the season due to a non-contact leg injury in the fourth quarter against Utah.

Brown remains in a Utah hospital in stable condition. "He needs to go through a couple of procedures here in the next, again it's a generalized three-to-seven days approximately..." head coach Mark Helfrich said. Brown might not be a focal point of the offense, but he has flashed NFL upside when given the chance. He caught 25 passes for 420 yards and six touchdowns this season

Oregon junior TE Pharaoh Brown had three catches for 99 yards in Saturday's 45-20 victory over Washington.

It was a career game for Brown, one week after he posted his previous career best yardage mark (five catches for 84 yards and a touchdown in a 42-30 victory over UCLA). The 6-foot-5, 241-pounder is a little raw, but he runs a 4.74 forty and could turn himself into a hot prospect if he continues to gain Marcus Mariota's confidence. Rob Rang of CBS Sports wrote over the summer that Brown "has the talent to be Oregon's next star tight end" because he's "a talented athlete with good size and big, soft hands."

Oregon junior TE Pharaoh Brown had five catches for 84 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 42-30 victory over UCLA.

The Ducks shook off last week's 31-24 home loss to Arizona and ended the playoff hopes of UCLA, a preseason Top-10 team. Oregon has topped the Bruins in six straight. Brown has collected 15 receptions for 215 yards and three touchdowns this season. Rob Rang of CBS Sports wrote over the summer that Brown "has the talent to be Oregon's next star tight end" because he's "a talented athlete with good size and big, soft hands."

Rob Rang of CBS Sports writes that Oregon junior TE Pharaoh Brown "has the talent to be Oregon's next star tight end."

Brown is coming off a forgettable campaign more notable for his off-the-field news (suspended for the bowl game for his role in a snowball fight) than his on-field production (10 catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns). There's no denying his physical ability, however (and, compared to Colt Lyerla, Brown is Tim Tebow). "He's a talented athlete with good size and big, soft hands," wrote Rang. The 6-foot-5, 241-pounder runs a 4.74 forty.

Brown participated in "a viral video that showed University of Oregon students -- including several football players -- pelting cars and drivers with snowballs Friday," according to the Oregonian. Head coach Mark Helfrich handed down the suspension after speaking with the two drivers whose cars were hit. Oregon is scheduled to play Texas in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30.

Oregon sophomore TE Pharaoh Brown is dealing with a leg injury recently suffered during practice.

In fact, Brown left Tuesday's practice with his left leg in a cast and on crutches. "I just tweaked it a little bit," said Brown. "I had to mobilize it a little bit. It happened a few days ago in practice." He added the cast should be removed on Friday and Brown should be ready to play in the season opener. The tight end has drawn praise this summer and could be an outstanding combo with Colt Lyerla.
