Tennessee Titans linebacker Jayon Brown gave a brief update on his shoulder after the win over the New England Patriots on Saturday night.
It didn’t look good for Tennessee Titans linebacker Jayon Brown after he exited the Wild Card game against the New England Patriots early, but there is reason for optimism with him moving forward.
Brown first exited the game on Saturday night on the opening drive of the game when he seemed to get his arm tangled up with Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson on a completed pass. After spending some time on the ground and then leaving the field, Brown would come back just plays later.
But things got worse in the second quarter after Brown re-injured his shoulder and this time came out of the game for good. Before being sent to the locker room to get checked out and being labeled questionable, he could be seen on the sideline crying.
However, after the game, Brown not only said he was good, he also didn’t have any kind of support on his shoulder, according to ESPN’s Turron Davenport.
Hopefully Brown will be OK for the upcoming game against the Baltimore Ravens next week, as Tennessee will need all hands on deck to deal with quarterback Lamar Jackson and Co.
The former fifth-round pick is one of the team’s best defenders and is one of the elite coverage linebackers in all of football.
Despite missing two games in 2019, Brown was third on the team in tackles and had the third-most passes defensed. His past injury that caused him to miss time this season was to his groin, not his shoulder, by the way.
We’ll have to keep an eye on the injury reports throughout the week and there is still definitely cause for concern with this situation, but for now this is about as positive of news as we can get in this early stage.
