Both will miss Week 12

|Players ruled OUT for @Titans on Sunday vs @Patriots:
WR A.J. Brown
LB David Long
LB Rashaan Evans
OL Nate Davis
RB Jeremy McNichols
DL Teair Tart (Jim Wyatt on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Titans are void of skill position players heading into their Week 12 matchup against the Patriots. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Dez Fitzpatrick and Chester Rogers will be the top three wideouts for Ryan Tannehill. Start the Patriots-D.

Titans dealing with multiple injuries at receiver
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 23, 5:15 pm
|Running back Adrian Peterson has been waived from the active roster. A seven-time Pro Bowler, Peterson played in three games for the Titans after being signed earlier this month. He rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown in 27 carries in those three contests. Defensive back Chris Jackson and receiver Marcus Johnson have been moved to Injured Reserve. Receiver Golden Tate, running back Rodney Smith, receiver Austin Mack and defensive lineman Kevin Strong have all been signed to the team's practice squad. (Tennessee Titans)|
FFToday's Take: With Marcus Johnson (hamstring), A.J. Brown (chest) and Julio Jones (hamstring) all dealing with injuries the Titans are scrambling to field skill position players. To make matters worse, we're probably looking at Dez Fitzpatrick and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine as starting receivers in a bad matchup on the road against the Patriots in Week 12.

Officially limited in practice after leaving practice early Thursday

|Something to monitor. Not sure if Julio Jones tweaked anything on this rep bit he wasn't too happy afterward and walked over to a trainer. It was towards the end of the open portion of practice. Didn't see him take any reps after it. (ESPN - Terron Davenport)|
FFToday's Take: Perhaps the Titans decided to use extreme caution here, but this is getting ridiculous for Jones. It is fair to wonder at this point if the team needs to protect him from himself and let him take as much time as possible to get his hamstring right. If Jones sits again this week against the Saints, A.J. Brown could push for overall WR1 numbers. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine has typically filled in for Jones when he has been sidelined this season and would be a viable flex option in deeper leagues.
| Julio Jones out for Week 8|

FFToday's Take: Jones has been battling a hamstring injury most of the season and played sparingly last week against the Chiefs. Josh Reynolds returned to practice after missing yesterday with an illness. The only receiver that can be trusted in this offense is A.J. Brown. Nick Westbrook-Ikhinen would be a dart throw.
| Titans will be without A.J. Brown and Julio in Week 4|
Both receivers missed practice Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 1, 2:00 pm
|Titans receivers Julio Jones and A.J. Brown didn't practice again on Friday, and Coach Mike Vrabel ruled OUT both players for Sunday's game. Jones, who didn't play down the stretch in Sunday's win against the Colts, is listed on the Injury Report with a hamstring injury.
Brown, who appeared on last week's Injury Report with a knee injury, is also listed on this week's Injury Report with a hamstring injury. (Tennessee Titans)|
FFToday's Take: Julio was missing late in the game last week against the Colts and reportedly has a hamstring injury. Josh Reynolds who has been inactive for the first three games will be forced into duty along side Chester Rodgers and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine. Tight end Anthony Firkser (knee) is also expected to play.
| Julio Jones getting treatment for leg injury|
Status for Week 4 unclear
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 29, 10:34 am
|Could the #Titans be without their top two WRs this Sunday?
WR Julio Jones is getting treatment on a leg injury, and his status vs the #Jets is up in the air, sources tell me and
@TomPelissero. A.J. Brown also may miss a week or two with a hamstring injury. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Titans may run Derrick Henry 40 times this week against the Jets if Julio and Brown are out. Even if Julio plays, expect to see a lot of Chester Rogers and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine on Sunday.
| A.J. Brown considered week-to-week with hamstring injury|
Julio Jones limited in Week 3
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 27, 4:21 pm
|Titans’ WR A.J. Brown has a strained hamstring and is expected to be considered week to week, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Brown rehabbed knee surgery all off-season and is now battling a hamstring injury which at the very least sounds like is going to keep from playing in Week 4. Expect to see more Chester Rogers and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine lining up at WR for the Titans in the coming weeks. Josh Reynolds was Inactive in Week 3 and Julio Jones was limited.
