The Tennessee Titans will be without some key players in Sunday’s matchup against the New York Jets.
In addition to wide receivers Julio Jones (hamstring), A.J. Brown (hamstring) and punter Brett Kern (groin), head coach Mike Vrabel has now ruled out linebacker Bud Dupree (knee).
Rookie cornerback Caleb Farley also won’t dress.
Vrabel: Bud Dupree is out for Sunday. “With a lot of injuries there’s things you’ve got to work through …”
Also Julio Jones, AJ Brown, Brett Kern. All out.

Dupree signed with the Titans in free agency prior to the 2021 season after six solid years with the Pittsburgh Steelers. His absence will certainly be felt this weekend, especially on a defensive unit that lost outside linebackers Derick Roberson and Rashad Weaver to the IR earlier this week.
Including Dupree’s knee injury, the Titans took several injury blows during this past weekend’s win over the Indianapolis Colts. Starting the week of practice on Wednesday, Tennessee had a whopping 12 players listed on the injury report — half of whom did not participate at all.
On a positive note, after not participating on Wednesday, starting offensive tackle Taylor Lewan (toe) has returned to full participation.
Sunday’s game will kickoff in New York at 1 p.m. ET.
