Shark Bites

The Titans on Tuesday placed ILB Jayon Brown on the PUP list. HC Mike Vrabel did not disclose the injury in announcing the move to reporters. We'll keep an eye on Brown's status as camp gets rolling.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

Titans LB Jayon Brown (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Seahawks. David Long figures to start in his place next to Rashaan Evans. OLB Bud Dupree (knee) is active but a low-end IDP option at best.

Titans LB Jayon Brown (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game at Seattle. He missed practice Friday with a hamstring injury that didn't affect his participation either of the previous 2 days. That progression doesn't seem to bode well for Brown's game status. OLB Bud Dupree is also questionable with a knee issue. We wouldn't be using him in IDP lineups even if he's active.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that LB Jayon Brown is re-signing with the Titans on a 1-year, $5.25 million deal. Those terms scream "prove it" contract, with Brown coming off a dislocated and fractured elbow that ended his 2020 season prematurely. We're a little surprised the productive young LB couldn't get more in this market, but perhaps teams want to see him start a full 16 games before committing beyond that level. Brown lost 8 games to injuries over the past 2 years (6 of those in 2020) after taking over a starting spot about midway through 2018. He has rated among the top LBs in coverage since then and delivered starter-level fantasy production. Barring a setback with his elbow this offseason, expect to find Brown back among the top 24 LBs in our 2021 IDP rankings.
