Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) missed practice Thursday after taking limited reps Wednesday. We should know more on Friday, but a midweek downgrade is worrisome. Per Adam Schefter, Brown has been diagnosed with "a bone bruise in his knee that is jeopardizing his availability for Sunday's game against the Jaguars and possibly beyond." The Titans play early on Sunday. Corey Davis is a possible pivot, but he's dealing with a hamstring injury.
According to Terry McCormick on Twitter, Tennessee Titans star wide receiver A.J. Brown has missed his second consecutive practice with a knee injury.
A.J. Brown missing his second consecutive practice suggests that there may be something here. There is no word yet on the nature or extent of the injury. All eyes will be on tomorrow's injury report as the fantasy football world waits to hear if the star receiver can, at the very least, get in a limited practice. If he cannot, an early rule out is a possibility, with a game-time decision also being in play. Luckily, the Titans play the Jaguars in the early afternoon so we will have clarity before the slate kicks off. Fantasy managers should start making contingency plans. Brown is our 11th ranked receiver for Week 2.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. This is the first we've heard of a knee injury, but it's a good sign that he's at least limited on Wednesday.
A.J. Brown, who finished third in the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year category a year ago, said he feels like a different player heading into training camp compared to last year, when he spent a good part of the offseason getting ready for the NFL Draft.
Earlier this offseason, Brown said part of his plan includes catching 1,000 footballs a day.
"I am definitely in a better place (physically), and I'm in a better shape mentally as well," Brown said. "Last year I was flying and going places, and I never could really sit still and put in the work."
We've heard this from rookies before, how their second season training and not having to worry about the draft is a big deal for progress. The story said Brown felt tired in the fourth quarter and is working to fix that and feels overall he's in better shape. We think he's a nice, fourth-round value in fantasy drafts.
