NASHVILLE • Titans receiver A.J. Brown, a rookie from Ole Miss, returned to practice on Sunday after hurting his left leg on the opening day of Tennessee camp.
Brown was the second player on the field for Sunday’s practice, wearing a helmet for the first time since July 26 – when he slipped running a route during an individual period.
He first warmed up with his teammates, then went to a side field where he worked with coach Mike Vrabel and fellow receiver Corey Davis.
Both receivers later went back inside.
Brown was the Titans’ second-round draft pick in April’s draft.
Vrabel said the Titans work hard to return players to practice at the right time, walking the line between being cautious and too aggressive. The hopeful plan is that Brown can quickly follow up by doing more than he did on Sunday.
Veteran running back Derrick Henry also worked on a side field with trainers on Sunday for the first time since he also left the opening practice of camp early with an injured left calf.
