The Tennessee Titans have gotten some early good news on star receiver A.J. Brown.

Brown had to leave the game against the Texans on Sunday due to a chest injury and didn't come back in.

Per NFL Networks Ian Rapoport, X-rays on Brown's ribs came back negative and he'll have more tests today.

This should be a big sigh of relief for Titans fans (at least for now) as the team cannot deal with another injury to a star player.

Tennessee already lost star running back Derrick Henry a few weeks ago to a broken foot and it's unknown if he will play again this season. Receiver Julio Jones is also banged up with a hamstring injury as he was placed on injured reserve on Nov. 13.

Brown is enjoying another solid season and is on pace to have his third consecutive 1,000-yard campaign. He already has 615 yards and three touchdowns on 46 receptions.

He's gone over 90 yards three times and it all came over a three-week span in October. The best of those performances was on Halloween against the Colts when he finished with 10 receptions for 155 yards and a touchdown.

The week before against the Chiefs, Brown had eight receptions for 133 yards and a score.

He's a game-breaker when healthy and very important to the Titans' offensive identity.
