Tennessee Titans inside linebacker Jayon Brown is questionable to return after suffering a shoulder injury.
Tennessee Titans inside linebacker Jayon Brown has suffered a shoulder injury and is questionable to return to the Wild Card game against the New England Patriots.
Brown originally suffered the injury on the Patriots’ opening drive. We’ll update this page as more information becomes available.
Brown was in coverage when New England quarterback Tom Brady completed a pass to tight end Ben Watson. The Titans’ former fifth-round pick appeared to have his arm tangled up on the play.
He would later return to the game, but Brown once again injured his shoulder in the second quarter, and this time it looked more serious, as Brown was seen on the sideline in tears.
The latest report from the sideline stated that Brown was in the locker room getting checked out, however it doesn’t look good for his return.
Losing Brown would be huge for the Titans’ defense. He is one of Tennessee’s best defenders and is an elite coverage linebacker.
Filling in for Brown is fellow inside linebacker and rookie, David Long. Tennessee selected Long in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of West Virginia. Veteran inside linebacker Wesley Woodyard also figures to get some snaps in his place.
Despite missing two games this season, Brown finished third on the Titans in tackles, and had the third-most passes defensed on the team. Brown missed the Week 7 and Week 10 game, both of which were the cause of a groin injury.
The Titans are currently trailing the Patriots 10-7.
