Tennessee Titans linebacker Zach Brown got the start Sunday against Miami and responded with a team-leading 12 tackles (eight solo).
The defense was kept busy in this one, but Brown was up to the task. His role upon the return of Avery Williamson (hamstring) is unclear, but Brown should continue to pile up tackles as long as Williamson is out.
Zach Brown will enter the starting lineup Sunday against the Dolphins, replacing the injured Avery Williamson (hamstring), John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.
Brown saw just 15 snaps in the Tennessee Titans ' last game against the Bills, but he should see that number rise considerably now that Williamson is sitting. While serving as a starter in the past for Tennessee, Brown has typically delivered strong tackle totals, but his uncertain role beyond this week probably won't make him a worthy IDP investment.
The talented linebacker continued his fine season after missing basically all of 2014 due to injury. He will get a chance to rest up in Week 4 as the Titans have a bye before returning to action against the run-heavy Bills attack in Week 5.
"I feel good, real good, and I just can't wait to get out there again," Brown told The Tennessean. "Last year, I felt like something was taken from me. So this year, I've got something to prove. Last year was the year I felt like I'd arrived, so now (I'm) back."
Brown only played in four snaps before the injury took place.
Brown, a second-round draft pick in 2012, totaled 210 tackles, 9.5 sacks over his first two seasons.
