Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown doesn’t practice Friday, status in doubt

Anthony Brown is dealing with some back issues, could they keep him out for Sunday’s game?

When looking around the Dallas Cowboys defense, it’ll be hard to find a player that has played more consistently this season than cornerback Anthony Brown. A third-year player, Brown has had a roller-coaster of a career so far with the Cowboys, but in 2018 things really came together for the 25-year old corner.

Brown has stayed healthy and played very well this year, but that could all change here soon after being listed as a DNP in practice on Friday. Brown was a FULL participant in practice on Wednesday, was downgraded to LIMITED on Thursday, then downgraded to a DNP on Friday with back spasms. Normally, when guys follow that same path during practice, they do not play on Sunday, but he hasn’t has ruled him out yet.

Losing Anthony Brown would certainly hurt given how well he’s played this season. So far in 2018, Brown has one interception, one forced fumble, two sacks, and 42 tackles on the season. The Cowboys are relatively deep at the position with second-year cornerback Jourdan Lewis ready to step in if Brown can’t go. Hopefully, Brown is just dealing with spasms and can rest up to be ready for the Cowboys game on Sunday against the 5-9 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
