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.
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.
