The playoffs are right around the corner, and for some players, it can't come fast enough. That could be said for Tennessee Titans wideout A.J. Brown as he readies himself to play against the Baltimore Ravens.
Let Brown himself tell it, his knee injury doesn't outweigh the possibility of playing as he preps for Sunday's sensational bout:

“I got breath in my body, I'mma play” stated Brown in the press videoconference. “Try not to get too amped up, number 1. It's already a big game, you don't gotta make it bigger than it already is.”
While the Titans didn't host practice on Wednesday, they did on Thursday, but Brown didn't participate. Be that as it may, Titans faithful have a stamp of guarantee from Brown that his services will be available come Sunday. He was listed on the Titans' injury report initially with knee and hand issues.
The two lingering injuries have made it hard on Brown to get his necessary reps in ahead of Sunday:
A.J. Brown: I don't get as many reps as I would like during the week. It turns into film study and me working to make the most of my opportunities.

Brown is an instrumental part of what the Titans could possibly achieve against the Ravens. In an AFC Wild Card match that could truly go either way, Brown could prove useful against a Ravens' defense that ranks second in the league.
Brown slightly turned up his numbers from his rookie campaign. The 23-year-old wideout completed 66 percent of his passes for 1,075 yards, resulting in 11 touchdowns. His performances earned him his first Pro-Bowl selection.
When it comes to downfield weapons, Brown leads the pack followed by Corey Davis. Either way, Ryan Tannehill will enjoy knowing that his top receiver is available.
