Brown gets full clearance | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Titans LB Jayon Brown got full, "unrestricted" medical clearance Friday to return from the elbow injury that ended his 2020 season. Brown fractured and dislocated his left elbow in November, but he should be fully ready for the coming season. The timing looks especially positive for Brown, as he's set to hit unrestricted free agency later this month. We'll see if the 26-year-old stays in Tennessee. Brown has spent the past 2 years as a strong IDP contributor.

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.

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.

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.

Titans ILB Jayon Brown put in full practices Thursday and Friday and didn't appear on the week's final injury report. It looks like he's ready to return for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers after missing Week 7.

Titans LB Jayon Brown returned to a limited practice Wednesday. Brown missed Week 7 with a groin injury that knocked him out early in Week 6. We'll see if he's ready to return for Sunday's game against the Buccaners.
