Last season, Brown caught 70 passes for 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns in 14 games (12 starts) and made the Pro Bowl.
Dupree, 28, was active last week but did not record a snap. He didn’t practice this week wtih a knee injury.
The Titans (2-1) will be vying for their third straight victory when they visit the Jets (0-3) on Sunday.
