Anthony Brown downplayed the significance of a hamstring injury that forced him out of Thursday’s Hall of Fame game in the first half.
Brown, the Dallas Cowboys’ second-year corner, had it tighten up when he attempted to block a point-after attempt by the Arizona Cardinals.
“Nah, I’m not concerned,” Brown said. “I just have to go get treatment tomorrow. It’s just tight. Nothing major. I didn’t want to make it worse in the Hall of Fame game.”
Brown is the second cornerback dealing with a hamstring issue. Rookie Jourdan Lewis stayed back in Oxnard, California for treatment on his.
Never miss a local story.
Outside of the hamstring issue, Brown felt he played OK. He started the game and lasted two series, notably getting beat on a 35-yard pass from Cardinals quarterback Blaine Gabbert to Brittan Golden. Brown whiffed when he tried to make a play on the ball.
“I should’ve just made the trackle instead of trying to dive for the ball,” Brown said. “Other than that, I thought it went pretty good.”
Brown started nine games last season as a rookie. He finished with 56 tackles, eight deflections and an interception.
