NASHVILLE – The Titans on Monday moved receiver A.J. Brown and defensive back Chris Jackson to the team's "Designated for Return from Injured Reserve" list, clearing their return to practice.
This designation opens up a 21-day window for both players to practice with the team, and they will not count against the team's 53-man roster until being activated from Injured Reserve.
Also on Monday, the Titans placed defensive back Elijah Molden on the team's Reserve/COVID-19 list.
The Reserve/COVID-19 list was created for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Brown, placed on IR back on November 27, would give the Titans offense a big boost if he's able to return this week.
Despite missing the last three games, Brown still easily leads the team with 46 catches for 615 yards and three touchdowns. He left the team's November 21 game against the Texans with a chest injury.
Jackson, meanwhile, has been on IR since November 23 with a foot injury. Jackson has played in nine games, including three starts, this season. Jackson has tallied 31 tackles, two quarterback pressures, one tackle for loss and four passes defensed in 2021.
The Titans face the 49ers on Thursday night at Nissan Stadium.
