Titans WR A.J. Brown (chest) has been activated from IR and will play vs. the 49ers tonight. He's been out since Week 11 but had no setbacks in practice this week, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's unclear exactly how big a role Brown will play tonight, but he obviously brings plenty of upside. See exactly where Brown sits in the Week 16 WR Rankings.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Titans are trading WR A.J. Brown to the Eagles. We'll see about the terms of the deal. The move doesn't look great for Brown. He goes from a Tennessee pass offense he would have dominated to a Philly offense that went even more run-heavy in 2021. Devonta Smith's presence also gives Brown arguably(?) the most talented WR he has played with since hitting the league. We'd bet on the Eagles throwing much more often in 2022. We'll see what the Titans add to an offense that now sports a recovering Robert Woods as its top WR.
Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapport reports that Philadelphia is giving Brown a 4-year, $100 million extension (with $57 million guaranteed).
Titans WR A.J. Brown (calf) is not listed on the final Week 17 injury report. He missed Thursday’s practice but returned to a full workout on Friday. Brown is safe to get into fantasy lineups for Sunday’s game vs. the Dolphins.
Titans WR A.J. Brown was added to the injury report with a calf and did not practice on Thursday. "All indications are it’s more precautionary than anything and he’s on track to play Sunday," NFL Network's Mike Garafolo tweeted. Brown can stay penciled into Week 17 fantasy lineups for now, but check back tomorrow for another update on his status.
Titans WR A.J. Brown (chest) is trending toward returning for Thursday night's game vs. the 49ers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He's looking pretty good," Rapoport added. "If all checks out well in practice, if it continues to head in this direction, we probably are gonna see Brown on the field" on Thursday. Tennessee desperately needs Brown back with WR Julio Jones likely out again with more hamstring trouble. Brown would come with more risk than usual in his first action since Week 11 -- but he'd also bring huge upside to fantasy lineups.
Titans WR A.J. Brown (chest) has been designated to return from IR. He's eligible to practice this week and be activated for Thursday night's game vs. the 49ers. He's still not guaranteed to be ready for that one, but we're tentatively expecting him to be out there. Brown would be a risky-but-high-upside fantasy play in his first action since Week 11.
