Ravens placed ILB Arthur Brown (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending his season.
A rare miss by GM Ozzie Newsome, Brown was active for just four of the Ravens' 16 regular season games and did not contribute on defense. He was the 56th pick in the 2013 draft. The Ravens may try trading Brown this offseason. The 24-year-old would be a better bet at outside linebacker in a 4-3 scheme. Jan 2 - 2:40 PM

Ravens declared ILB Arthur Brown, WR Michael Campanaro, CB Chris Greenwood, DT Terrence Cody, OL Gino Gradkowski, OL Ryan Jensen, and DT Casey Walker inactive for Week 16 against the Texans.

They're all healthy scratches. Brown, the 56th pick in last year's draft, hasn't been able to find the field all season behind Daryl Smith and C.J. Mosley. Brown may be a trade candidate in the offseason. He has talent.

Ravens ILB Arthur Brown was a healthy scratch for the fourth consecutive game in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

C.J. Mosley has been an every-down player at the weak-side spot, but UDFA Zach Orr is active over Brown for his special teams value. The Ravens are "extremely unlikely" to trade Brown despite placing him on the trading block earlier this month. Brown was the 56th overall pick in 2013.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Ravens ILB Arthur Brown has been the subject of trade discussions.

Brown is buried on the Ravens' depth chart after losing his starting job to rookie C.J. Mosley. He played zero defensive snaps in Week 1, and doesn't contribute on special teams. Brown has tons of talent though, so it makes sense teams are interested. The linebacker-needy Cowboys could make sense as a landing spot.

Ravens ILB Arthur Brown has "slid down the depth chart" since the beginning of training camp.

Last year's second-round pick is definitely behind Daryl Smith and first-rounder C.J. Mosley, and it sounds like Brown has fallen behind Josh Bynes and perhaps Albert McClellan as well. Brown reportedly excels in space, but too often gets enveloped amongst bodies. He's going to be a special teamer in 2014.

Ravens second-year ILB Arthur Brown bulked up over the offseason.

Brown weighed 241 at the 2013 Combine and is listed at 235 on the Ravens' website. He's competing with first-round rookie C.J. Mosley for the starting job next to Daryl Smith, but is expected to lose out and operate as a nickel linebacker. Most of Brown's contributions will come on special teams.

After drafting C.J. Mosley, the Ravens plan to use 2013 second-round pick Arthur Brown as a nickel linebacker.

Daryl Smith and Mosley are expected to be the starters in 2014, but the Ravens envision Mosley and Brown as their long-term inside linebackers. Baltimore's defense will be better by getting Josh Bynes out of the rotation. Brown primarily played nickel linebacker in 2013, managing 15 tackles across 14 games.

Ravens ILB Arthur Brown is tentatively penciled in as a three-down player.

Jameel McClain has signed with the Giants and Josh Bynes projects as a situational player. It leaves Brown, who was mostly a nickel linebacker as a rookie, as a leading candidate for a starting role next to Daryl Smith. Already a plus pass defender, Brown would bring tackle upside into the season if he doesn't rotate out on run downs. The former two-time All-Big 12 selection has breakout candidate appeal in IDP circles pending his role.

Coach John Harbaugh expects Arthur Brown to win a starting inside linebacker job in 2014.

A favorite of the draftnik community a year ago, Brown surprisingly slipped to the second round and then underwent sports hernia surgery. He ended up as a strict reserve, playing just 211 snaps and compiling a mere 15 tackles in 14 games. With a full offseason to earn his stripes, Brown shouldn't have a problem beating out Josh Bynes and Jameel McClain.

Ravens rookie ILB Arthur Brown is full-go at training camp after missing some offseason work following sports hernia surgery.

Brown did get in some individual drill work at OTAs. Described as a "sudden" athlete with "striking ability" by NFL Films' Greg Cosell, Brown will immediately add thump to the interior of Baltimore's defense, where he'll help replace Ray Lewis. Those are big shoes to fill, but Brown's on-field playing personality is highly composed and professional. We believe he'll prove up to the task.

Ravens second-round ILB Arthur Brown (sports hernia) was participating in individual drills at minicamp Thursday.

Brown isn't 100 percent yet, but this puts him well on track to be ready when training camp opens. It's great news for the Ravens, who are counting on the talented rookie to help fill Ray Lewis' shoes. Brown is a sneaky candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.

Ravens rookie LB Arthur Brown is recovering on schedule from sports hernia surgery.

Brown is slated to start at inside linebacker next to Jameel McClain, and told reporters he's on schedule to be 100 percent for the beginning of training camp. He has the talent to be an impact player as a rookie.

Ravens signed second-round ILB Arthur Brown to a four-year contract.

Brown was viewed by many as a first-round prospect as a fast, rangy, sideline-to-sideline linebacker. He recently underwent sports-hernia surgery and will be on the shelf for four-to-six weeks. Brown is questionable for the start of training camp, but he's still penciled in as a starting inside 'backer.

Ravens second-round LB Arthur Brown is recovering from sports-hernia surgery, and will be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

It means Brown should miss next month's minicamp, and is questionable for the start of training camp. It's a minor blow to the Ravens' inside linebacker corps on the heels of Rolando McClain's retirement as they look to replace Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe. The good news is, Brown is in no danger of missing regular-season games, and should get plenty of reps in the preseason. He's just losing some helpful development time. Brown is still going to start as a rookie.

SI's Peter King reports LB Arthur Brown was "going to be" the Texans' pick at No. 57 before the Ravens traded up to get him.

Per King, the Broncos also had interest in Brown at No. 58. Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome had to give up the No. 165 and 199 picks to move up just six spots, but it will be well worth it if Brown steps into a starting role as a rookie. Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris considered Brown a top-10 overall talent.
