The Tennessee Titans kept key acquisition Julio Jones on the sidelines for a second consecutive practice Wednesday, playing it safe with the two-time All-Pro wide receiver.

Jones left Monday’s practice after an awkward landing as he hauled in a pass from Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill. On Wednesday, Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said “the Julio watch will continue” as the team takes a cautious approach.

The Titans acquired Jones from the Atlanta Falcons in June. The seven-time Pro Bowl selection missed seven games with myriad injuries in 2020. He has 848 receptions and 60 touchdowns in 135 games (134 starts), all with the Falcons.

Also, WR Josh Reynolds missed his fifth straight day of practice.

Reynolds left last Thursday’s practice early and hasn’t returned.

The Titans signed Reynolds to a one-year deal in March. A fourth-round pick by the Los Angeles Rams in 2017, Reynolds caught 113 passes for 1,450 yards and nine scores in 64 games (24 starts) for the Rams.
