Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel revealed that the team has ruled out two key players ahead of the Week 5 contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars in wide receiver Julio Jones and punter Brett Kern.

This is the second straight game both have missed. Punter Johnny Townsend will take the reins once again this week for Kern, while the Titans will go with some mix of their backup receivers to fill the void left by Jones.

Tennessee did get some good news, though. Wide receiver A.J. Brown is expected to play, according to Vrabel. Brown missed last week’s game against the New York Jets.

Two players who were in the concussion protocol, left guard Rodger Saffold and outside linebacker Sharif Finch, are both out of the protocol and are expected to suit up on Sunday.

Tennessee and Jacksonville will kick off at noon CT on Sunday, with the game taking place at TIAA Bank Field.
