The Tennessee Titans' always-heavy reliance on Derrick Henry might be even heavier on Sunday, as the availability of the team's top two wide receivers is in question.
Trade acquisition Julio Jones is being treated for a hamstring injury, and his status for this week's game against the New York Jets is uncertain, while A.J. Brown is also ailing with a hamstring injury that could cost him at least one game, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero. Neither practiced Wednesday. Brown had been targeted just twice, without a catch, when he exited the Titans' Week 3 win over the Colts in the first quarter.
After getting a season-low 17 carries in a Week 1 loss, Henry has since commanded 35-for-182 and 28-for-113 performances in subsequent wins over the Seahawks and Colts, respectively. If Jones and Brown are out for Sunday, quarterback Ryan Tannehill would have to rely more on Chester Rogers and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine at the wide receiver position.
Rogers has been a regular this season as the club's third wide receiver, running 72 routes -- not far behind Jones (86) and Brown (80), per Next Gen Stats. Westbrook-Ikhine has run 42 routes and been targeted just seven times in three games.
