It’s been a frustrating season for one of the Tennessee Titans‘ biggest stars, and unfortunately, it doesn’t appear as though that’s anywhere close to ending. A.J. Brown‘s first week of NFL action added another touchdown to his resume, but his team lost. In Week 2, he dropped four passes.

Surely, he’d put everything together in Week 3 right? Well, it looks as though we’re wrong on that theory!

More frustration comes for one of Tennessee’s biggest stars, but this time it forces him out of action.

Tennessee Titans may have to go without A.J. Brown for Week 3’s remainder.

According to several reports, including this one from ESPN’s Tarron Davenport, Brown’s been sitting as the Tennessee Titans’ offense continues to operate. A hamstring injury appears to be the reason.

At the time of this story being written and published, Brown’s potential return has been labeled as ‘questionable’. The Titans, at the time, were up by seven points on the scoreboard, and even though, in a game versus a divisional opponent as talented as the Indianapolis Colts, you’d want to have all hands on deck, on has to wonder if the smarter play is to go the rest of this one with Number 11 on the sideline.

If that’s the play, Brown’s day ends with zero catches and one rushing attempt for three yards. Tennessee has other offensive weapons that they can rely on obviously, one of which is the game’s best running back, Derrick Henry, but even though it’s difficult to determine when the injury happened, the best decision may be to allow Brown to sit.

No one wants to see him further aggravate any injury and force him to miss any extended time. Keep it locked here. You’ll be the first to know if there are any updates.

Update: As expected Jim Wyatt reports that Brown is indeed out for the rest of this one.
