The Titans have placed WR Julio Jones on IR for the hamstring he injured in Friday's practice. That knocks him out for at least the next 3 games, starting with Sunday's matchup with New Orleans. His absence can only help the target outlook for A.J. Brown, who was already dominating on that ront. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Chester Rogers were the next 2 WRs in playing time last week against the Rams, with nearly identical snap totals. Marcus Johnson trailed behind them. We also might see more work for a TE group with Geoff Swaim and Anthony Firkser at the front. The hamstring has been a nagging issue for Jones through most of the season. We'll see if this IR stint can shake it and make him a factor by fantasy playoff time.

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.

Titans WR Julio Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Saints. Jones started the week off the injury report. But he was added back and limited on Thursday before missing Friday’s practice. That has him looking unlikely to play on Sunday -- and very tough to trust in fantasy lineups if he does.

Titans WR Julio Jones (hamstring) was added back to the injury report and limited in practice on Thursday. ESPN's Turron Davenport saw Jones appear to tweak the hamstring on a route early in practice. Jones' availability for Sunday's game vs. the Saints is now uncertain. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Rams. He was added to the injury report and did not practice on Friday, but we heard this morning that Brown would be “fine” for this game. Get him in fantasy lineups if you waited on him.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) "should be fine" for Sunday night's game vs. the Rams, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown is listed as questionable after being added to the injury report and sidelined on Friday. We won't get his game status until around 7 pm ET tonight, but it sounds like he can be penciled into fantasy lineups.

The Titans are still hoping to get RB Derrick Henry (foot) back this season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, but it might be unlikely. It "would be very surprising if he made it back this season," a source told Schefter. The injury Henry suffered -- a Jones Fracture -- is notoriously difficult to return from. We'll continue to monitor his rehab, but Henry is only worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues, with the hope that he'd be back for the final game or 2 of the season.

The Titans promoted RB D'Onta Foreman to the active roster. He signed to the practice squad on Tuesday, so he must have had a good week of practice. Foreman joins Jeremy McNichols and Adrian Peterson in Tennessee's backfield for Sunday night's game vs. the Rams.

Titans WR Julio Jones (hamstring) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He confirmed on Friday that he’ll play vs. the Rams on Sunday night. Jones hasn’t topped a 66% snap share since Week 2. He’ll remain a risky fantasy option until we see him make it through a game healthy.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) was added to the injury report and did not practice on Friday. He's listed as questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Rams. We'll look for further updates on his status. The late kickoff could make this a tricky situation for fantasy owners.

Titans WR Julio Jones (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We'll see what he does tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report for Sunday night's game vs. the Rams.

Titans WR Julio Jones (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday -- his 1st since Friday of Week 7. Jones seemingly has a chance to play vs. the Rams on Sunday night, but check back tomorrow for another update.

The Titans waived RB Mekhi Sargent from the practice squad and replaced him with RB D'Onta Foreman. Foreman was a 3rd-rounder back in 2017 but has totaled just 29 carries since tearing his Achilles in November of his rookie year. He's unlikely to emerge as a fantasy factor but is at least worth monitoring in Tennessee's Henry-less backfield.

Titans RB Derrick Henry will undergo foot surgery on Tuesday morning, HC Mike Vrabel said. Vrabel gave no timeline for Henry's return or any other details. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Henry broke the 5th metatarsal in his foot, commonly referred to as a Jones Fracture. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, meanwhile, reports that Henry is expected to miss 6-10 weeks. "Six would be quite fast, eight is more likely," Rapoport says. That 8-week mark would have Henry back for Week 17 -- or championship week in most fantasy leagues. You can hang on to Henry if you have an IR spot or a very deep bench. But he's also cuttable if you need to free up a roster spot.

Titans RB Derrick Henry suffered a "potentially" season-ending foot injury in yesterday's win over the Colts, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "Henry is undergoing an MRI today to determine the full extent of the damage," Schefter adds. We'll update Henry's status as soon as we know more, but this injury obviously has major fantasy implications. Tennessee only has RBs Jeremy McNichols and Dontrell Hilliard behind Henry on the depth chart right now. RB Mekhi Sargent is on the practice squad. None of those guys are fit to handle anywhere close to Henry's volume. The Titans could add a RB before Tuesday's trade deadline. But we'll likely see them shift significantly toward the pass for as long as Henry is sidelined. It's good news for QB Ryan Tannehill and WR A.J. Brown.

The Titans have ruled LB Rashaan Evans (ankle) out for today's game against the Colts. Jayon Brown has yet to be activated from IR, so it'll be either Monty Rice or Nick Dzubnar filling in for Evans next to David Long. We'd only bet on Long seeing full playing time and thus making sense for your IDP lineup.

Titans LB Rashaan Evans is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts after popping up on Friday's injury report with an ankle issue that kept him out of practice. That should keep Evans out of IDP lineups even if he's active. The team also designated LB Jayon Brown to return from IR this week. We don't yet know whether he has a chance to play Sunday.

Titans WR Julio Jones (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Colts. It's unclear if he suffered a setback or if Tennessee has just decided to get that nagging hamstring injury some rest. Regardless, WR A.J. Brown should dominate targets this weekend.

Titans WR Julio Jones (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He'll likely play through this hamstring injury again vs. the Colts this weekend, but Jones is tough to trust in fantasy lineups right now. He's mustered just 5 catches on 9 targets for 97 scoreless yards over the last 2 weeks.

Titans WR Julio Jones (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday after aggravating that hamstring injury in Monday night’s win over the Bills. Jones is the ultimate risk/reward fantasy play today.
