Final Update: With A.J. Brown out, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine took over Brown’s spot and ran the most routes of all the Titans receivers, per Pro Football Focus. He still only ended up with four targets, which tied Julio Jones and Geoff Swaim for the team lead. Jones surely should have seen more than four targets with Brown out.

Westbrook-Ikhine did lead the team in receiving yards with 53 and scored a touchdown. It’s not the best spot, but he would be the pickup if Brown misses time.

UPDATE: A.J. Brown is on the sidelines in shorts, so his day is done with a hamstring injury. Julio Jones becomes the No. 1 while Chester Rogers and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine have caught touchdowns in his absence.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown is questionable to return to the Week 3 game against the Colts with a hamstring injury. Brown has yet to catch a pass in this game. He walked gingerly off the field and is now on the sideline with his helmet off during their drive. At this point, it doesn’t look great for his return.
