Titans place ailing WR Brown on injured reserve

The Tennessee Titans have placed star receiver A.J. Brown on injured reserve, it was announced Saturday.

Brown had not practiced this week after suffering chest, rib and hand injuries during last week’s 22-13 loss to the Houston Texans.

The Titans will likely turn to rookie Dez Fitzpatrick to start in place of Brown in Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. The Titans did not elevate veteran Golden Tate from the practice squad.

In 10 games, Brown has 46 receptions for 615 yards and three touchdowns. He also missed Tennessee’s Week 4 loss to the New York Jets because of a knee injury. The Titans had already ruled Brown out for Sunday’s game at the Patriots on Saturday.

In another moves, the Titans activated running back Khari Blasingame off injured reserve. He’ll be eligible to play vs. New England.

Also, receiver Cody Hollister and defensive end Kevin Strong were elevated from the practice squad.
