Raiders placed LB Ricky Brown on injured reserve with a concussion, ending his season.

He may eventually be released with an injury settlement. Brown was at one time a regular contributor in the Raiders' linebacker corps, but is primarily a special teamer at this stage of his career. He had yet to notch a tackle in three games this season.

Raiders re-signed LB Ricky Brown.

Brown spent the summer in Patriots camp, but he was with the Raiders as a special teamer, strong-side linebacker, and middle linebacker from 2006-2010. He'll add depth with Travis Goethel (knee) out for the season. OT Seth Wand was released to create roster space.

Patriots released LB Ricky Brown.

Brown, 27, racked up nine tackles in the final two preseason games after signing on August 20. He may stay on the Patriots' in-season "emergency" list.
Fri, Sep 2, 2011 03:18:00 PM

Patriots signed LB Ricky Brown, formerly of the Raiders.

Brown has made 13 career starts after entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2006, but his role will most likely be on special teams if he's able to make the roster in New England.
Sat, Aug 20, 2011 01:09:00 PM

Raiders extended a second-round restricted free agent tender to LB Ricky Brown before last week's deadline.

The special teamer and reserve linebacker drew the same tender last year. The Raiders have shown no hesitation in overpaying their restricted free agents in exchange for the comfort of scaring other teams off. As a five-year vet, Brown is likely to hit the open market regardless.
Tue, Mar 8, 2011 04:38:00 PM

Raiders re-signed restricted free agent LB Ricky Brown to a one-year, $1.759 million deal.

Brown, who was offered a second-round tender, entered last season as the starting strongside linebacker before suffering a broken ankle in late October. With Kam Wimbley ticketed for SLB in 2010, Brown may be given the opportunity to compete with MLB Kirk Morrison again. More likely, he's headed for a reserve role.

The Raiders have assigned a second-round tender to restricted free agent LB Ricky Brown.

With the Raiders ushering Kirk Morrison out the door (or at least they hope), Brown may get another shot to start at middle linebacker this summer. On a good team, however, the former undrafted free agent would be a utility man.
Wed, Mar 3, 2010 07:10:00 PM

The Raiders are not expected to tender restricted free agent LB Ricky Brown this offseason.

Should Brown not be tendered, he will become an unrestricted free agent and could draw solid interest as a 26-year-old with the versatility to play both strong-side and middle linebacker. Brown ended last season on injured reserve. It's unknown if he needed surgery on his troublesome ankle.
Mon, Feb 15, 2010 05:39:00 PM

Raiders placed OLB Ricky Brown (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Brown may have required surgery. He hadn't played in several weeks, although the extent of his injury was never clear. Jon Alston will finish out 2009 as the Raiders' starting strong-side linebacker. Brown will be only 26 next season and figures to re-sign with Oakland to compete for a starting role.
Sun, Nov 22, 2009 12:27:00 PM

Raiders SLB Ricky Brown (ankle) admitted that he's unlikely to play again this season.

Brown is out of his cast and has been running while doing light cutting. Expect a decision about whether to place Brown on injured reserve soon.
Sat, Nov 21, 2009 12:16:00 PM

Raiders SLB Ricky Brown (ankle) has already been ruled out for Week 11.

Brown went down in Week 5 and there was concern he might need season-ending surgery. He didn't have the surgery, but doesn't appear close to returning to the field.
Tue, Nov 17, 2009 12:25:00 PM

Raiders SLB Ricky Brown (ankle) said he's healing well and is hoping to return by Week 8.

That doesn't seem likely considering season-ending surgery was a possibility just one week ago. Expect Brown to at least sit out through the Raiders' Week 9 bye.
Tue, Oct 20, 2009 10:12:00 AM

Raiders declared LB Ricky Brown, RB Darren McFadden, FB Luke Lawton, T Langston Walker, T Cornell Green, G Robert Gallery, WR Chaz Schilens and WR Nick Miller inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Javon Walker is "up" for the second time this season. The Raiders offensive line is in shambles at a bad time. The Eagles are going to blitz a ton.
Sun, Oct 18, 2009 03:32:00 PM

Raiders SLB Ricky Brown (ankle) could need season-ending surgery, coach Tom Cable said Monday.

Cable said Brown will miss four weeks at a minimum. It's another blow to a Raiders run defense that is ranked 31st in the league. Fellow linebacker Kirk Morrison suffered a sprained knee in the game and his status for this week's matchup with Philadelphia is uncertain.
