Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Jaron Brown left Sunday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks with a knee injury that forced him to the locker room and is questionable to return. He suffered a knee injury last week that had him listed as questionable entering the game on Sunday before he ultimately suited up. Brown did not make a catch before exiting the game.

Brown finds himself as the outside man on an offense that prominently features a trio of wideouts ahead of him that consistently see more balls come their way in Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown (no relation), and Michael Floyd. He would go un-drafted during the 2013 NFL Draft before eventually latching on with the Cardinals and making their opening week 53-man roster later that summer.

He would appear in all 16 games as a rookie and has never looked back, doing so each of his three seasons in the NFL since joining the league out of Clemson. He’s had at least 11 catches each season, with his best year coming in 2014 when he snagged 22 catches for 229 yards and two touchdowns. For his career, he’s accumulated 44 catches and four touchdowns.

The Cardinals have opened the season at 3-3 coming into their game on Sunday night, having already suffered injuries to quarterback Carson Palmer, who had to sit out a game due to concussion-related issues. But after winning a game with Drew Stanton under center, Arizona finds themselves back at the .500 mark and riding their running back David Johnson, who has taken a considerable load off the Cardinals passing attack, limiting touches for ancillary receivers such as Brown.
