Update (Nov. 27, 1:15 p.m. ET): AJ Brown has been placed on the injured reserve list, which means he'll be out for at least the next three games. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Chester Rogers will likely see a bump for as long as Brown is sidelined.

Tennessee Titans wideout AJ Brown suffered a chest injury in Week 11 that has put his status for this Sunday in jeopardy. Brown missed the first few days of practice, and the latest update on the star wide receiver crushes his Week 12 fantasy outlook.

AJ Brown Injury Update

AJ Brown Fantasy Outlook

Brown is officially out for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.

It's a huge blow for fantasy managers to lose the current WR29 in PPR scoring. Various ailments, including food poisoning, have plagued Brown this year and hurt his fantasy upside.

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine Fantasy Outlook

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine could be the biggest beneficiary with Brown out and Julio Jones on IR.

Westbrook-Ikhine saw a season-high 8 targets in Week 11 with Brown hampered by his chest injury. He produced with 7 receptions and 107 yards in a game where Tennessee trailed.

Week 11 was the wideout's third-highest snap share (67%) of the season, and he'll be a focal point of the passing attack as the de factor WR1.

Chester Rogers Fantasy Outlook

Chester Rogers will have a chance to shine as well.

He posted his highest snap percentage (69%) of the season in Week 11. Rogers also tied his season high with 6 targets, which he converted into 4 receptions for 41 yards.

Rogers and Westbrook-Ikhine could get plenty of work if the Titans, who are 7-point underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook, get forced into a pass-heavy game script. Treat them as potential FLEX plays against a New England Patriots defense allowing the fourth-fewest PPR points to WRs this season.
