The Tennessee Titans are dealing with a number of wide receiver injuries ahead of their weekend game against the winless New York Jets. The latest update on Titans star wideout AJ Brown is worth noting for fantasy football owners. Brown did not practice today due to a hamstring injury, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport. In Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts, Brown was limited to just eight snaps. He didn’t have anything to offer. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Brown’s injury isn’t going to make things easier for No. 2 wide receiver Julio Jones. The former All-Pro wide receiver is currently dealing with his own hamstring injury. If Brown and/or Jones are unable to play against the Jets on Sunday, the Titans will turn to Chester Rogers, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, and Jeremy McNichols. Before the weekend, we’ll know for sure what the situation is.
Not looking good for Sunday for any of them.

Since being drafted 51st overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, AJ Brown has appeared in 33 games. He has back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons under his belt and was named to the Pro Bowl in 2020 after catching 70 passes for 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns. Fortunately for the Titans, they may not have to rely on their passing attack against the Jets.
New York is a below-average run defense, having already surrendered five rushing touchdowns this season. Combine that with the Jets’ mediocre offense, and the Titans should have no trouble wearing down and defeating the hapless team. AJ Brown’s status, however, is something fantasy football fans will want to keep an eye on. Nokia News
