Julio Jones' tenure with the Tennessee Titans hasn't gone as planned so far. The seven-time Pro-Bowl wideout has been dealing with a hamstring injury over the last three weeks, leaving his Week 7 availability in question.

Fortunately, things are looking up for Jones and his prospects of facing the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The veteran told reporters Friday that he's feeling good and looking forward to the Week 7 matchup.

Julio Jones Injury Update

Jones told reporters that he wasn't fatigued after Friday's practice and that it was good to move around. That's great news considering Tennessee will need all the help it can get to defeat Kansas City.

Jones' hamstring issue forced him to miss Weeks 4 and 5 of the season. He managed to suit up in week 6 against the Buffalo Bills, however, he exited the game and did not return once his hamstring began to act up.

Despite his injury woes, the 32-year-old has stil caught 15 of 23 targets this season for a team-leading 263 receiving yards. He hasn't found the end zone yet, but that could change against a Chiefs team that has given up 277.3 passing yards (T-25th) and 1.8 touchdowns (T-19th) per game in 2021.

The Titans are currently 4.5-point underdogs against the Chiefs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
