The Tennessee Titans welcomed in the Indianapolis Colts to Nashville on Sunday with a chance to take a commanding lead on the AFC South. However, the team took a major hit early in the first quarter when A.J. Brown left the game with an injury.
The Titans Pro Bowl wide receiver was reportedly seen on the sidelines without his helmet while the Tennessee offense was out on the field. The reason for his absence eventually became clear later on in the first quarter.
Apparently, Brown suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday’s Colts-Titans game. According to Ari Meirov, he is questionable to return.

Losing Brown for any period of time is a devastating blow for the Titans. Alongside Julio Jones, the former Ole Miss wide receiver comprises one half of a frightening pass-catching duo in Tennessee.
Brown has gotten off to a relatively slow start in 2021, at least by his standards. Through two games, he’s made seven catches for 92 yards and a touchdown.
Although he might be struggling to repeat the success of his last two years, Brown is still an integral part of the Titans passing offense. Without him, head coach Mike Vrabel and quarterback Ryan Tannehill will need to adjust the game plan.
The Colts and Titans are currently knotted at seven early in the second quarter. Stay tuned for further updates on Brown’s status.
