Hamstring lands Jones on IR

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.
