Titans end DT Tony Brown’s season, place him on IR

The Tennessee Titans have placed defensive tackle Tony Brown on

injured reserve because of a knee injury.

Brown had surgery in the offseason on his right knee as he

rehabilitated and missed most of the preseason. The past few weeks,

he has been playing despite not being able to practice. He started

11 games but was inactive for two with 3 1/2 sacks and 10

quaraterback pressures.

The Titans (5-8) ended Brown’s season Wednesday.

They replaced Brown on the roster by signing center Kevin

Matthews off the practice squad. Matthews is the son of Hall of

Fame lineman Bruce Matthews, currently an assistant coach with the

Houston Texans.
