Which means he should be good for Sunday barring a setback

if he secretly tore his achilles, we'd know, right?

We’re going to need our big boys in this one to stop the run. If we limit Henry and force this to be a Tannehill vs Mahomes game, we win by double-digits.

I agree but with Spags coaching everyone up and the defense starting to gel it would have been interesting to see if Jones run d had improved. Yes I am already expecting him "not to play".:-)

Yeah. We need every single big boy we have up front just for rotation. Henry is probably going to get the ball 30+ times this game again, and our guys will inevitably get worn out. Jones missing this game will fucking hurt if it happens.

Could be a blessing in disguise over the long term. Last thing KC needs is another dead weight massive liability contract such as Justin Houston or Eric Berry. Take the $20M from Jones’ potential salary and use it for better depth in the OL, LB, or secondary.

I hope you’re right but I think the beef Jones offers along with interior pass rushing ability is more valuable than any of our other defensive linemen’s skill set.

Let’s contrast the 2 matchups we had with the Titans. Which one makes you feel better if you had to choose?

4 DL with Chris Jones and Joey Ivie and Okafor at DE

Or

4 DL with Pennel, X. Williams and Suggs at DE


IMO Suggs and Pennel are HUGE additions for this game and stopping Henry.

I would think the best starting DL for the Titans game would have to be Jones at DE, Pennel and Nnadi at DT and Clark at the other DE. Yes with plenty of rotation of Suggs at the DE position as well.

I want a healthy Chris Jones on the field if at all possible.

I hope they're trying some 5-2 and 6-1 packages in practice this week just in case things get a little hairy. I'd think a DL of Clark-Nnadi-Pennel-Jones-Suggs would be pretty difficult to run on.

Yeah, we'd know because he wouldn't be hopping around on the sideline 3 days after injuring it.

Cut him if he doesn't play. No excuses.

Don’t overlook the fact that the Titans are far healthier than they were when we played them last as well. Casey is back at full strength, their secondary is pretty much intact as well. They are thin right now at linebacker however, with recent injuries to Brown and some other Jag I can’t remember right off the top of my head....

Seems weird he'd be testing it out to possibly play last Sunday but can't go a week later, but WTF do I know.
