Jones missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury; Monday Night Football is on Star +, subscribe
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Titans will have wide receiver Julio Jones back in the lineup when they face the Buffalo Bills in “Monday Night Football” next week. Jones spoke to the media on Friday and said he plans to play in Week 6 against the Bills.
“I’m going to be ready to play,” Jones said. “I am working each and every day to prepare for Monday Night.”
Jones missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury which forced him to be retired in the third quarter of the Titans’ Week 3 win over the Indianapolis Colts. The veteran catcher said his hamstring was tight and he lost games for precautionary reasons.
Jones participated fully in practice on Thursday and Friday of this week. He has 12 receptions for 204 yards in three games this season.
The Titans took Jones over the offseason to add another weapon to his passing game and pair up with AJ Brown. The two have been on the field together for only two games.
Brown was retired due to a hamstring injury after playing just eight plays in Week 3 against the Colts and missed Week 4 against the Jets. Brown also hopes to play Monday.
