The Tennessee Titans have announced that linebacker Jayon Brown has passed his physical and has been removed from the physically unable to perform list. Brown was placed on the PUP list last week after reporting to camp, but now is a part of the active roster.

Brown suffered a shoulder injury against the New England Patriots in the wildcard round of the playoffs last season. He missed the following game against the Ravens, but returned a week later to face the Chiefs.

In 2019, Brown was credited with 117 tackles, four of which came for a loss. He added a sack, an interception and a fumble recovery as well.

The former 5th round selection in the 2017 NFL Draft has grown into a starter and a true impact player for the Titans. Brown will enter his fourth season in the league set to play alongside of Rashaan Evans once again in the teeth of the Tennessee defense.

Brown has a little over a month to get ready for the first matchup of the season, which comes against the Broncos on Monday, September 14th.
