A.J. Brown would not delve into the specifics of his injury, a bone bruise in his knee that forced him from practicing Thursday and Friday.
“Just know that I'm working through it,” he said.
It’s unclear when the injury occurred, but the 6-foot, 226-pound receiver did catch a helmet to the knee with about 10 minutes left in the Titans’ season opener in Denver on Sept. 14. On a screen pass from Ryan Tannehill, Brown picked up seven yards before Denver safety Kareem Jackson went low for a tackle. Brown was slow to get up before motioning to the sideline that he was coming off the field.
As the story said, bone bruises can linger, but the fact that the Titans didn’t place Brown on injured reserve – which would mean he would have to miss the next three weeks – would seem to indicate they believe a return is not too far off.
