Ravens WR Marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown says he’s 100% healthy after training camp injury

Ravens wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown said Monday that he’s 100% healthy after recovering from a hamstring injury that sidelined him for most of training camp.

Brown came into camp in late July “feeling the best I have felt,” he said. But after a dominant opening practice, he got hurt. He missed the Ravens’ three preseason games and didn’t return to practice until last week.

“It’s frustrating,” he said, “but everything happens for a reason.”

Brown, a 2019 first-round pick, expects to play in next Monday’s season opener in Las Vegas against the Raiders. He said he’s done “everything I can” to stay in sync with his teammates and on track with his recovery. Coach John Harbaugh said Monday that Brown “looked good” in his first week back at practice.

“He’s just in the process of getting himself ready,” Harbaugh said. “You can’t get those days [of camp] back, but he’s a really good football player. He’s in good shape. I think our people have done a good job with the rehab and the conditioning and all that. He’s been in all the meetings. He knows what to do. So now he’s just got to go out and do it.”

Brown said rust wouldn’t be a problem in Las Vegas — “I plan on hitting it rolling this game” — and that he and close friend Lamar Jackson have “picked up where we left off” in practice.

Brown has missed practice time over his career with Lisfranc (foot), ankle and now hamstring injuries, but he’s played in 30 of 32 games overall. Last season, he had 58 catches for 769 yards and eight touchdowns. His goals this season, he said, are simple.

“I think I just want to be healthy,” he said. “I want to play in every game and just win the Super Bowl. I think that’s my No. 1 goal.”
