John Brown, WR (DEN)

Could sign to active roster soon

After signing to the Broncos' practice squad, Brown could possibly suit up for Denver in Week 6, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

According to Stevens, Coach Vic Fangio noted Wednesday that the next three days will shed light on how quickly Brown could be moved up to the active roster, adding that the team would make a decision by the end of the week. Fangio's comments aren't surprising, as the team is in need of depth at the wide receiver position due to the injuries that have plagued their season thus far. Brown could carve out a solid role in the Denver offense as a speedy receiver on the outside. The 31-year-old enters an offense that will see Jerry Jeudy (ankle) make his return in the coming weeks. Fellow wideouts Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick have handled the majority of pass catching duties admirably for the Broncos, so Brown is no sure thing to see consistent usage in Denver's offense going forward. If the veteran receiver is signed to the active roster this week, he could make his debut against the Raiders in Week 6.
