Adam Humphries expected to play vs. Browns, Jonnu Smith ruled OUT

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans Steve Roberts-USA TODAY Sports

Well, this is mostly good news. It sounds like Titans wide receiver Adam Humphries will play against the Browns this Sunday.

Humphries hasn’t played since suffering a nasty concussion against the Bengals on Sunday, November 1st.

His return would be a welcomed boost for an offense that’s currently firing on all cylinders once again. Humphries was having a very nice season before he went down with that head injury. He had 22 catches, 219 yards and two touchdown catches in the six games he’s played.

He brings another element to this offense, particularly as a third-down chain mover. Anthony Firkser has done a nice job filling that role in Humphries’ absence, but you can never have too many pass catchers in today’s NFL.

Tight end Jonnu Smith (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday after missing practice for the third straight day on Friday. MyCole Pruitt is expected back. Expect Pruitt, Firkser and Geoff Swaim to all play big roles on Sunday. The O-line is going to need some help in pass protection.

Adoree Jackson and Isaiah Wilson have also been ruled OUT. Breon Borders will once again start at outside cornerback. The team will have to call up an offensive tackle from the practice squad to replace Wilson as a backup linemen on the active gameday roster.

The Titans take on the Browns in Nashville this Sunday.
