Chykie Brown DB BAL 1 Month

Brown recorded one tackle on 38 snaps in Thursday's 26-6 win over the Steelers.

Brown was replaced in the starting lineup by Asa Jackson, who left in the second quarter with a concussion. The Ravens only entered the game with three healthy cornerbacks, and they used safety Jeromy Miles as the nickelback. Brown appears destined for a role as the No. 4 corner, but with both Jackson and Lardarius Webb (back) uncertain for Week 3 at this time, there's some chance Brown could draw his second start of the season next week.

Brown got beat by Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green for a game-winning, 77-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's regular-season opener.

Starting in place of Lardarius Webb, Brown played nearly every defensive snap, finishing the game with five tackles (four solo). He struggled in the preseason and was viewed as the obvious weak link in the Baltimore defense, but he wasn't picked on that often until the biggest play of Sunday's game. Brown could make for a surprisingly strong IDP option if he gets another start, as he'd likely be challenged quite a few times by Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger. However, Brown isn't a particularly good tackler, and Webb is apparently making progress in his recovery.

With the Ravens banged up at cornerback, Brown may need to take on a larger role.

Brown entered training camp in a battle with Asa Jackson (ankle) for the No. 3 cornerback spot, but Jackson seemingly pulled away before suffering an injury. With starting corners Lardarius Webb (back) and Jimmy Smith (chest) also banged up, Brown may be a big part of the defense in Week 1, a prospect that the Ravens likely aren't too excited about. If he ends up starting, Brown will be an interesting short-term IDP because of the likelihood that he'll be picked on by opposing quarterbacks.

Chykie Brown is viewed as the frontrunner to be the Ravens' nickel back in 2014.

Brown's chief competition will be third-year CB Asa Jackson, who has drawn two suspensions since entering the league. They're trying to replace Corey Graham. Brown played just 39 defensive snaps last season but made nine tackles on special teams. The Ravens didn't draft a corner. They added three UDFA rookies.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley considers Chykie Brown the slight favorite for the Ravens' No. 3 cornerback job.

The Ravens lost Corey Graham to free agency, so Brown and Asa Jackson are the only two corners behind Ladarius Webb and Jimmy Smith. Brown was active for all 16 games last season, but played just 39 defensive snaps. Baltimore remains highly likely to draft a cornerback in the first four rounds.
