The second-year wideout has been dealing with an unspecified knee injury since August, now reported as a bone bruise. Per Vrabel, Brown’s status will be assessed “week-to-week.”
Ineffective in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos, Brown caught only five passes for 39 yards. This followed an outstanding rookie season where he emerged as Tennessee’s leading receiver, compiling 1,051 yards and eight touchdowns on 52 receptions.
Fourth-year receiver Corey Davis will shoulder the load in Brown’s place, after contributing seven receptions and 101 yards in the Titans’ season-opening victory.
However, Tennessee’s bread-and-butter remains their ground attack, led by 2019’s rushing champion Derrick Henry. Against the Broncos, Henry rumbled for 131 all-purpose yards on 34 touches, accounting for 35% of the Titans’ offensive production.
