Kuharsky: Jayon Brown will play in AFC Championship

New, comments

The Titans get their best coverage linebacker back.

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Oakland Raiders Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Paul Kuharsky of PaulKuharsky.com (a great website that I’m a proud subscriber to) is reporting that Titans linebacker Jayon Brown WILL play in today’s AFC Championship matchup against the Chiefs.

Obviously, this is great news for a Titans defense that will need all the help they can get against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs plethora of offensive weapons. Brown is the Titans best coverage linebacker — by far — and one of the better cover backers in the entire league.

He wasn’t available for the first matchup against Kansas City, but will give Tennessee another option to put on Travis Kelce from time to time, and most importantly, be able to help the defense control the middle of the field better than they did the first time around.

We don’t have confirmation on the other six players that were listed as questionable on Friday (Rashaan Evans, David Long, Adam Humphries, Adoree’ Jackson, Jack Conklin, and Cody Hollister), but I’d be pretty shocked if any of those guys are out at this point. Expect all hands on deck for the Titans with a Super Bowl trip on the line.
