The Tennessee Titans look set to have their top two wide receivers, A.J. Brown and Julio Jones, available to face the AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The 1/2 Chiefs have one win less than the 17/10 Titans heading into the Week 7 encounter at Nashville's Nissan Stadium.

Kansas City's prospects of levelling up the records won't be helped by the return to action of seven-time Pro Bowl selection Jones, who has been battling a hamstring injury he sustained in Week 3.

The 32-year-old returned after missing two games to play against the Buffalo Bills on Monday, connecting on three catches for 59 yards that included a superb play to haul in one reception that had bounced off a defender's helmet.

But he left the game early after aggravating his hamstring and has been listed as questionable on the Titans' injury report this week.

I feel good and I'm excited about Sunday.

Jones expressed optimism this week that he'll play on Sunday, telling the Titans' official website: "I feel pretty good. The weather was nice today, it wasn't too hot. I was able to get out there and move around. I wasn't fatigued.

"So, I feel pretty good. This week, I feel great, I feel good and I'm excited about Sunday."

The Titans will be without left tackle Taylor Lewan, who remains sidelined by a concussion, linebacker Monty Rice (groin) and wide receiver Chester Rogers (groin).

However, wide receiver Brown is off the injury report after an extended bout of food poisoning.
