Titans WR A.J. Brown working through bone bruise in knee

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.
