Brown had missed last week’s team scrimmage for what coach Dan Mullen called a family matter.

Brown’s dismissal means the Bulldogs are without their top four receivers from a year ago — De'Runnya Wilson left for the NFL, Fred Ross has a groin injury and Donald Gray has a knee injury.

Brown finished third on the team last season with 27 receptions for 412 yards and three touchdowns.

If there’s a positive to this, the team’s younger receivers are getting the bulk of the reps this fall, which will be invaluable for next season.
