Wednesday's Quick Hits: A.J. Brown's Surging Confidence, Taylor Lewan's Return and the Titans Injury Report


NASHVILLE -- The Titans returned to the practice field on Wednesday at Saint Thomas Sports Park to continue preparations for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Here's a look at three quick hits from Wednesday:

A.J. Brown's Confidence

Titans receiver A.J. Brown caught nearly 200 passes in the SEC.

He was a second-round pick in the NFL Draft.

It's safe to say he entered the league with confidence.

But he admitted on Wednesday his recent success has given him an extra boost.

"That was a big confidence boost for me," Brown said of his performance against the Falcons, when he scored two touchdowns. "Honestly, it goes down to how hard I work each day, day in and day out.

"But making big plays like that in the game and getting the team going, it gives me a big confidence boost that I can really do this."

After four games this season, Brown leads the Titans with 223 receiving yards, and two touchdowns, on 10 catches. Brown had touchdown catches of 11 and 55 yards against the Falcons.

The key now is to keep it going alongside Corey Davis and the team's other receivers.

"I feel like it should happen, but that goes back to preparing each day, and progressing each day little by little," Brown said. "We want to do that week in and week out."

Taylor Lewan's Return

Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan practiced on Wednesday for the first time since returning to the team earlier this week.

Lewan, suspended the first four games of the season, will provide a lift, quarterback Marcus Mariota said.

"Any time you bring back a Pro Bowl type player, that's going to help," Mariota said of Lewan. "I think when it comes down to it, just through the meetings and what we've been through these first few hours with him, he is excited and you can tell that he has a little juice to him.

"When you bring that type of player back into it the offense with the juice and excitement, it is going to carry over to the other guys as well."

Injury Report
