The Tennessee Titans are expected to activate wide receiver A.J. Brown from injured reserve on Thursday in time for the team’s “Thursday Night Football” matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.
The Titans designated Brown to return to practice on Monday, and he has been a full participant, according to ESPN. He hasn’t taken the field since sustaining a chest injury on Nov. 21 in a 22-13 loss to the Houston Texans.
Brown leads the team with 46 receptions for 615 yards. His return is expected to be a boost for quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who hasn’t fared as well without Brown as one of his targets.
That being said, Tannehill will also have to pick his game up on Thursday night if the Titans are going to match up against a 49ers team that has won five of its last six games.
