The Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs have released their inactives lists for the AFC Championship Game.
All the speculation about who will or won’t play in the AFC Championship Game between the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs can be put to bed, as both teams have released their inactives.
There are no surprises either team going into this crucial matchup.
Of the seven Titans who were listed as questionable coming into this game — right tackle Jack Conklin, wide receivers Adam Humphries and Cody Hollister, linebackers Jayon Brown, David Long and Rashaan Evans, and cornerback Adoree’ Jackson — only Hollister is inactive.
Here’s a look at both teams’ full list inactives.
Humphries is finally making his return after a six-game absence. He was responsible for the game-winning touchdown in this pair’s first meeting back in Week 10.
Brown suffered a shoulder injury in the wild card game against the New England Patriots and was inactive for the divisional round win against the Baltimore Ravens. His return is huge, as he’s an elite coverage linebacker and will be needed against tight end Travis Kelce.
As far as Jones goes, his status is obviously good news for a Chiefs defense that will be tasked with stopping the hottest running back in the NFL right now, Derrick Henry, however he could be at less than 100 percent, hindering his performance.
Regardless, the Chiefs would rather have a less than 100 percent Jones as opposed to not having him at all.
The Titans and Chiefs will kickoff at 2:05 p.m. CST for the right to be the AFC representative in Super Bowl LIV in Miami in two weeks.
