Tennessee Titans great Eddie George compared rookie wideout A.J. Brown to a Hall of Fame receiver, and also gave some insight into the injury Derrick Henry is dealing with.
If Eddie George was going to compare Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown to one guy, who would it be?
The Titans great says that Brown, who had his third 100-yard performance in his last four games in Week 15 and now sits just 107 yards away from 1,000 on the season, reminds him of Hall of Fame wideout, Terrell Owens.
Here’s George’s explanation during his guest spot on The Midday 180 Show.
That comparison is spot on in terms of Brown’s physical abilities. The Ole Miss product’s combination of strength and an ability to make big plays happen are truly one-of-a-kind.
Of course, we’ll have to hope that he doesn’t have a personality like T.O.’s, but so far there hasn’t been anything close to an indication that he does. In fact, Brown has already displayed leadership qualities at a young age and definitely has his head on straight.
George also spoke about Derrick Henry‘s injury after the star running back has been clearly hobbled by a hamstring issue the last two weeks.
George explained that Henry is not at 100 percent and the injury only gets worse as the game goes on.
It has been abundantly clear that Henry doesn’t have the same burst or power whenever he’s gotten into the open field or run into tacklers over the past two weeks.
Henry has still been effective, but could definitely use a week off to get right. However, that’s a tough thing to do with the Titans trying to make a playoff push over the last two weeks of the season.
Unless his injury gets to the point where he physically can’t go, Henry will continue to tough it out and play, which is better than not having him at all.
