INDIANAPOLIS—Coach Lovie Smith said earlier in the day that he hoped veteran Mike Brown would have a role this coming season, and general manager Jerry Angelo backed that up.
Brown, who turned 30 earlier this month, has missed 43 of the last 64 regular-season games with injuries. He tore the ACL in his left knee in the season opener at San Diego, and is entering the final year of his contract.
"We hope so,'' Angelo said when asked if he envisions a role for Brown this year. "Right now all I can say is he is under contract, he’s rehabbing, everything is going real well. Hopefully, by another month Mike will be given a clean bill of health and we’ll go from there."
Brown is rehabbing in San Diego, where he resides in the offseason now.
