Brandon Jones healthyPosted: July 30, 2008
Brandon Jones has been working as the Titans’ third receiver so far in training camp.
Jones’ mother tells him to “break a leg” before every game out of tradition. Unfortunately, Jones has injured his lower body, tearing his right ACL in 2005 and injuring his groin last season.
Jones is finally healthy and hoping to develop in what would be his second full season after Tennessee drafted him in 2005.
“He’s got that injury thing completely behind him. He’s getting open and making plays and he’s much more comfortable now with another year under his belt,” Fisher said.
Jones has proved capable at times, including in 2006 when he averaged 14.2 yards a catch. He’s hoping to start playing himself into a significant role on the offense.
“Where do I fit in into the mix? It’s hard to tell” what the coaches are thinking, Jones said. “I haven’t started making the plays that I want to make. I’ve got to continue to go out there and play better.”
A few of Jones’ teammates were more optimistic, including Vince Young.
“Brandon Jones has been doing real good, coming out here every day making plays for us, being physical to the ball definitely,” Young said. “The speed that he has, he’s starting to showcase that a whole lot.”
