Titans ILB Jayon Brown is expected to miss the rest of the season after injuring his left elbow in Sunday's win over the Ravens, according to multiple reports. He fractured and dislocated the elbow, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That positions Rashaan Evans as the lead ILB for Tennessee going forward. Will Compton took over and closed out the game in Brown's spot Sunday.

Falcons WR Julio Jones has been sidelined for the majority of Sunday's game against the Saints with what Fox Sports was told is "tightness" in his hamstring. Jones hasn't been officially ruled out, but we're not expecting to see him back in there at this point. We'll look for an update on his status.

Update: Jones returned to make a 4th-quarter, 4th-down catch -- and then gingerly walked off the field holding his left hamstring.

The Titans have ruled S Kenny Vaccaro out for today's game against the Ravens and placed him in the concussion protocol. It was a late-developing situation. Vaccaro was limited Thursday and listed with a neck injury but returned for full participation Friday. Joshua Kalu looks like the next man up at SS for Tennessee but isn't a strong IDP option.

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.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but is evidently ready to return for this weekend’s game vs. Minnesota. Jones carries elevated risk until we see him make it through a game healthy — but he also boasts WR1 upside in what should be a shootout against a beatable Vikings secondary. Jones' return is also good news for QB Matt Ryan, who's struggled the past 3 weeks.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday. It's an estimation since Atlanta didn't actually practice after a positive COVID test from a coach. We'll see if Jones can get on the practice field tomorrow, but he's looking unlikely to play against the Vikings this weekend.

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.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) remained sidelined on Wednesday. At this point, fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on him in Week 6 fantasy lineups. We'll see if his outlook improves over the next few days.

5:10pm EDT 10/13/20

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.

11:10am EDT 10/11/20

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Panthers. Olamide Zaccheaus will step into Jones’ spot and is in play for DFS and deep PPR leagues.

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.

The Falcons won't make a final decision on WR Julio Jones' status for today's game against the Panthers until pregame warmups, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Jones aggravated his hamstring injury this past Monday night and didn't practice all week. We'd be surprised if he plays but will find out for sure around 11:30 am ET. Even if he's active, Jones would be a high-risk fantasy play.

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 Falcons list WR Julio Jones (hamstring) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. He didn't practice all week after aggravating that hamstring injury on Monday night, so fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him in Week 5 lineups. We'll get Julio's official status by noon ET on Sunday. WR Olamide Zaccheaus will move into the starting lineup if Jones sits.

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.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) will do "off the field, individual stuff" on Thursday, HC Dan Quinn said. It's a step in the right direction and theoretically gives Jones a shot to play against the Panthers this weekend. We'll get another update on his status on Friday.

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.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. We'd have been surprised if he did just a couple of days after aggravating his hamstring issue. But fantasy owners shouldn't bank on having him in Week 5 lineups.

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.
