The Titans have ruled EDGE Jadeveon Clowney (knee) and CB Adoree' Jackson (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Ravens. That keeps CB Breon Borders in the lineup after 9 and 5 tackles (with 5+ solos in each) the past 2 games.

The Titans have placed RB Darrynton Evans on IR with a hamstring injury. That leaves Jeremy McNichols as Tennessee's #2 RB. He'd need a Derrick Henry injury to have fantasy value.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) is active for tonight’s game against the Bills. He put in a full practice on Saturday, so we’re expecting him to play something close to his usual role tonight. And Brown’s matchup gets a big boost with Bills CB Tre’Davious White out.

The Titans have shut down their facility again after a coach tested positive for COVID on Sunday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The team had gone a couple days without a positive and seemed on track to play the Bills on Tuesday night. But that's now in serious doubt. We'll continue tracking the situation, but Bills and Titans players should probably be on fantasy benches for now.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Bills. He was listed as a full participant on Saturday, so it looks like he'll be back for this one. Pencil Brown into fantasy lineups for now -- and we'll let you know if something changes with his status. Bills top CB Tre'Davious White is questionable with a back injury. His absence would be a big boost to Brown's matchup.

The Titans listed WR A.J. Brown (knee) as a limited participant for the 2nd straight day on Friday. It's only an estimation because the Titans haven't actually been able to practice due to their COVID outbreak. It does seem like Brown is on track to play against the Bills if that game happens on Tuesday. We'll get another update on the wideout tomorrow.

The Titans and Patriots' latest COVID tests came back with no positives on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. So Tennessee's game vs. the Bills on Tuesday and New England's vs. the Broncos on Monday are still on track to be played. That could still change with positive tests over the next couple of days. Stay tuned.

The Titans this week placed DT Jeffery Simmons on COVID reserve. He'll almost certainly miss at least 1 game. We'll see beyond that. At this point, it's getting hard to believe the Tennessee-Buffalo game will happen this Sunday. The Titans have not been allowed back to team headquarters since the rash of positive COVID tests following Week 3, and they're now reportedly in trouble for gathering to practice anyway away from team facilities.

The Titans had 2 more players test positive for COVID on Wednesday morning, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. The team was expected to return to its facility today, but that can't happen now. Sunday's Titans-Bills game is now in serious jeopardy. Fantasy owners need to be prepared to be without players from those teams in Week 5.

The NFL announced on Thursday morning that the Steelers-Titans game will not be played this week after a 5th Titans player tested positive for COVID. We're still waiting to hear when the game will be played, but Week 4 now acts as a bye week for Steelers and Titans players. Get them out of your starting lineups.

The NFL is postponing this week's Steelers-Titans game after multiple Tennessee players tested positive for COVID earlier this week, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, meanwhile, hears that the game will be rescheduled for either Monday or Tuesday. That'd keep all Pittsburgh and Tennessee players available to use in Week 4 fantasy lineups. We're keeping those guys in the Week 4 Rankings for now -- but it'd still be wise to line up alternatives in case the situation changes.

The Titans had 3 players and 5 personnel test positive for COVID, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. The Titans and the Vikings, who played Tennessee this past week, are suspending in-person activities starting today. We'll see where this goes.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Titans WR A.J. Brown is dealing with a “pretty significant knee bruise” that hasn't responded well to treatment. "Brown now could wind up missing more time with the slow-healing nature of his knee bruise," Schefter adds. We'll continue tracking Brown's progress, but it sounds like owners should plan on being without him again in Week 4.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He didn’t practice all week, so his status for Week 4 and beyond remains uncertain. Corey Davis, Jonnu Smith and Adam Humphries will again serve as Tennessee’s top 3 passing-game targets this weekend.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) did not practice on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Vikings this weekend. Fantasy owners should be making other plans.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He seems to be on the wrong side of questionable for this weekend's game against the Vikings. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Titans WR A.J. Brown tells The Tennessean that the bone bruise in his knee is improving by day, but that "I got to take it slow." We'll see whether that means Brown will miss Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. Dealing with a bone bruise in his knee, Brown might end up missing multiple games. His absence this weekend should mean more targets for WR Corey Davis and TE Jonnu Smith.

Titans WR A.J. Brown missed practice Thursday with a bone bruise in his knee, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The injury reportedly puts Brown in danger of not only missing Sunday's game against the Jaguars but "possibly beyond." Schefter reports he's likely to be week to week. We'll see where this goes, but it sounds like you need to plan to miss Brown from your Week 2 fantasy football lineups.

Titans LB Rashaan Evans was ejected in the 1st quarter of Monday night's game against the Broncos for punching the facemask of Denver TE Jake Butt. We'll see if Evans faces any discipline beyond this game.
