NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Tuesday to continue preparations for Thursday's game vs the San Francisco 49ers at Nissan Stadium.
Here's a look at what happened on Tuesday:
-Receiver A.J. Brown, moved to the team's "Designated for Return from Injured Reserve" list on Monday, practiced for the first time since the week before the team's November 21 game against the Texans. Brown suffered a chest injury in that contest, and he hasn't played since.
This designation opened up a 21-day window for Brown to practice with the team, and he will not count against the team's 53-man roster until being activated from Injured Reserve.
Brown does not appear on the injury report since he's not currently on the 53-man roster.
The Titans have until Thursday to activate him for Thursday's game and head coach Mike Vrabel said today Brown will be evaluated throughout the week.
"He will have to go out there and he has been working with the trainers and the strength staff," Vrabel said of Brown. "Looking at conditioning and updates in how he responds to the work he has done. He will be with us in the jog through today and I am sure he will do some stuff a little bit faster."
-Titans receiver Julio Jones was at practice on Tuesday, but he did not go through drills with other players during the open period.
Jones is listed on the Injury Report with a hamstring injury, and he was officially listed as "Did Not Practice" on Tuesday's report.
"We will see what he does in practice and see what he is able to do," Vrabel said. "Probably take it down to game time."
