Julio Jones, Wide Receiver: The Titans will once again be without one of their top pass-catchers on Sunday. It looks like A.J. Brown will be back, though. They’ll need him to carry the load through the air alongside the tight ends, Cameron Batson, etc. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine is questionable this week.
Racey McMath, Wide Receiver (IR): The rookie has not been involved very much on offense. Other depth receivers will have to fill his void, though. Expect Chester Rogers to continue to gets more looks as well as Josh Reynolds.
Aaron Brewer, Offensive Lineman (IR): The loss of Brewer creates a bit less depth on the offensive line. Regardless, Tennessee desperately needs its starters on the OL to improve their play.
Tommy Hudson, Tight End (IR): Hudson is a similar loss to Brewer, mostly just depth on offense.
Jayon Brown, Linebacker (IR): David Long Jr. will fill the role of Brown while he is out and possibly beyond. Long Jr., Rashaan Evans, and Monty Rice will all have to step up to slow down Jaguars running back James Robinson. He was one player, among a handful, placed on IR this week. He will have to miss a minimum of three weeks. For more info on his absence, check out this piece from Buck Reising.
Brett Kern, Punter: Last but not least, the special teams star will miss another week. Townsend struggled some in his place last weekend, averaging about 38 yards per punt. They’ll need a bit more than that going forward.
