The Tennessee Titans could be without one of their top offensive weapons Monday night against the Buffalo Bills. On Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans’ official website reported that wide receiver A.J. Brown was added to the injury report due to an illness. He is officially listed as questionable.

Brown was listed on the injury report this week with a hamstring injury, but was a full participant in all practice sessions. This issue is more worrisome due to it popping up just a day before the game. The Pro Bowl wideout hasn’t had the start to the 2021 season that he would have liked. Brown has caught just 10 passes for 130 yards and one touchdown while missing a game and a half due to the aforementioned hamstring injury.

If Brown were to miss this game, additional attention will be given to Julio Jones — who is making his return after missing two games. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine could be in line for additional touches along with Chester Rogers — although he is questionable with a groin injury as well. Keep an eye on Cameron Batson. He’s a versatile wideout who ran a bit out of the wildcat formation against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5.

The Titans will need Brown if they want to keep up with Josh Allen and Co. on the scoreboard. It sounds like it will all come down to how he is feeling by pregame warmups.
