The Titans placed LB David Long Jr. (hamstring) on IR ahead of Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. That knocks him out at least through Week 17. LB Monty Rice started in Long's plays against Jacksonville and logged 12 tackles. Expect to see him in Tuesday's IDP waiver-wire article.

Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Simmons has been playing through the ankle issue for weeks and managed 2 limited practices this week, so we'd bet on him playing. We'll certainly check his status Sunday morning. Tennessee has ruled DL Denico Autry (knee), LB David Long (hamstring) and CB Kristian Fulton (groin) out for the game.

Titans LB David Long left in the 1st half of Sunday's loss to the Eagles with a hamstring injury and was ruled out not long after. That doesn't bode well for his Week 14 status, but we'll watch for an update from the team. LB Joe Schobert replaced Long and would seem to be in line to start if Long can't go. LB Dylan Cole also started his 2nd straight game in place of Zach Cunningham (IR).

Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. He missed practice all week and has moved down our Week 8 IDP rankings. We'll check his status Sunday (barring a change before then). Tennessee ruled EDGE Rashad Weaver (back) out for the game. LB David Long (groin), on the other hand, is off the final injury report. He put in a full Friday practice after limited workouts the previous 2 days.

The Titans have ruled LBs David Long and Rashaan Evans out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. That leaves Jayon Brown and Monty Rice as the starters, with Brown the top choice for IDP lineups.

The Titans have ruled LB David Long (hamstring), LB Rashaan Evans (ankle) and EDGE Bud Dupree (abdomen). CB Janoris Jenkins (chest) is questionable after missing Thursday's and Friday's practices. EDGE Harold Landry (hamstring) and DL Jeffery Simmons (ankle) carry no injury designations into the game despite managing injuries this week. Landry spent the week limited with a hamstring issue. Simmons sandwiched a missed Thursday's practice between 2 limited workouts. Both look fine to use in IDP lineups, though.

The Titans have ruled LB David Long (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Saints. LB Rashaan Evans (ankle) is questionable but doesn't look like a particularly good bet to play. He followed a limited Wednesday by missing practice Thursday and Friday. No Evans would leave Jayon Brown and rookie Monty Rice as the off-ball LBs. Brown played 70% of the snaps in Sunday night's win over the Rams, his return from a knee sprain that landed him on IR. We're betting that Brown increases that playing time and leads Evans or Rice in that category. He supplied 7 solos last week and should be a solid bet for at least LB3 production vs. New Orleans -- with upside beyond that.

The Titans on Friday placed LB Jayon Brown on IR with a knee injury. He'll miss at least the next 3 games. David Long should be the playing-time leader at the position while Brown is out. He has been the past 3 weeks, with Brown seeing his snaps limited while he dealt with a hamstring injury and then the knee. LB Rashaan Evans, meanwhile, hasn't exceeded 70% snap share since the opener.

Titans ILB Jayon Brown missed Wednesday's practice with a knee injury. A hamstring injury cost Brown Week 2. He was back to full practice by the Friday of Week 3, though, and finished that week off the injury report. But Brown then played only 16% of the snaps against the Colts. Last week found him fully participating in practice every day, but then Brown played just 31% of the snaps vs. the Jets. We haven't seen any specific report yet on this knee issue or explanation of Brown's recent playing time. He can't be used in IDP lineups until we see a return to starter-level playing time. David Long has started each of the past 3 games and played nearly every snap.
