Former Crimson Tide wide receiver and current Tennessee Titans target, Julio Jones, is reportedly battling a leg injury heading into week four. The tenth-year veteran's status is regarded as "up in the air" according to NFL analyst Ian Rapoport.

Jones previously battled a lingering hamstring injury through all of 2020, and appeared in only nine games. In his time on the field; however, Jones was extremely solid as usual, picking up 771 receiving yards.

Contract disputes led to Jones being traded from Atlanta following the 2020 season, and the former Falcon found his way to Tennessee, paired with former Alabama running back, Derrick Henry, and rising star wide out, A.J. Brown.

In three games for Tennessee this season, Jones has managed just 12 receptions for 204 yards; a somewhat disappointing start for the seven-time pro bowler. If Jones is unable to go on Sunday, it will be the eighth game he has missed in the last two seasons, and the 26th in his career.

Through ten years, Jones has clearly solidified himself as a future hall of famer. The Foley, AL native has 860 receptions for over 13,000 yards on his career, being the fastest player to ever do so and joining elite company along the way.

The Titans face off in week four against the 0-3 Jets, led by rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, with a chance to improve their record to 3-1. Whether or not Jones will be available has yet to be confirmed, but this is a game Tennessee could likely afford the veteran wide out to miss. If Jones can stay healthy throughout the year, the Titans are a very dangerous team in the AFC with Super Bowl aspirations.
