    SUMMARY: WR Brandon Jones has fought back from his ACL surgery last December and will test it this Saturday when the Titans face the Falcons. Jones, who feels he is 75% right now, is ready for the opportunity. "If coach is ready for me to play, I am ready to play," Jones said. "When I get out there and take a couple of hits and get a couple of routes in, I'll know where I am. Physically, I think I am good, but I don't want to be overconfident because I haven't even taken a hit." Jones had 23 catches for 299 yards and two touchdowns last season. It is uncertain which point in the game Jones will play or for how many snaps.

    I heard this mentioned on the radio yesterday. I am glad he's coming back but by the things I've read in the past few months, I agree that this seems too soon. I'm a bit apprehensive about it. Seems like last year after he was injured they brought him back too soon and then he was injured even worse as a result. I hope this works out and he's safe out there. I really like this kid. He has had a few "character" stories written on him. He's a really great guy from what I have read.

    Fisher may just want him on the field a few plays to begin rebuilding his confidence. I doubt he'll have his number called but you never know.

    I bet we see "post" and "fly" routes.
