Former Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown to miss Tennessee-Minnesota game
For the second straight week in a row, the Tennessee Titans will be without their top wide receiver.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, A.J. Brown has been ruled out for the Titans’ road matchup against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. The former Ole Miss standout has been dealing with a bone bruise on his knee, which also caused him to miss Tennessee’s Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Brown played in the Titans’ season opener against the Denver Broncos on Sept. 14, but he got off to a slow start, notching five receptions for 39 yards in the victory.
In 2019, Brown had a strong rookie season for Tennessee, hauling in 52 passes for 1,051 yards and eight touchdowns in 16 games. He was selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Titans after playing for the Rebels from 2016-18.
It’s unclear how long Brown will be out due to this knee injury. The 23-year-old missed practice all week for Tennessee, so it’s not too much of a surprise that he’ll be held out of Sunday’s game.
After this week, the Titans have three straight home games in Weeks 4-6 (against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills and Houston Texans).
