The teenage hit-man joined the Belle Vue outfit on a month's loan in October, a deal that was extended by a further four weeks in November.
However, following the injury, Brown has now returned to the Stadium of Light, and is hoping to use his first team experience to claim a place in Mick McCarthy's (pictured) side.
"It's a blow because I was enjoying my football. We've had a good run in the last six weeks and it has been a fantastic experience for me," explained Brown.
"The gaffer said going out on loan would help my game and he was right. It's definitely a big step up from reserve team football.
"They have said that the injury will keep me out for between three and six weeks, so I'll have to see how it goes."
