On Saturday, the Atlanta Falcons added wide receiver Julio Jones to injured reserve. Julio Jones will miss at least three games with a hamstring injury.
The Tennessee Titans previously traded their 2022 second-round pick and 2023 fourth-round pick to the Atlanta Falcons for Julio Jones and a 2023 sixth-round pick. The Tennessee Titans plan to have Julio Jones support the passing offense with A.J. Brown.
In six games this season, Julio Jones has 21 catches for 336 yards. In his absence, sophomore Nick Westbrook-Ikhine is expected to replace him. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine has 15 catches for 155 yards and two touchdowns this season.
The Tennessee Titans also promoted rookie wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick from the practice roster to the roster.
Julio Jones was injured in practice Thursday and missed Friday’s practice. It was another blow to the Tennessee Titans offense following Derrick Henry’s indefinite absence with a foot injury.
