Delanie Walker caught 2-of-5 targets for 17 yards in Tennessee's Week 7 loss to the Redskins.
Both the catches and yards were Walker's fewest of the season. One of his missed connections was a Charlie Whitehurst pass that sailed a mile over his head for an interception. Walker had the looks of a potential top-five tight end earlier in the season, but is settling in as a low-end TE1. The Texans aren't a great matchup in Week 8, though getting Jake Locker (thumb) back might help. Oct 19 - 6:39 PM

Delanie Walker secured 3-of-8 targets for 57 yards in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Jaguars.

Walker got open on a second-quarter route but was badly overthrown by Charlie Whitehurst. He rebounded for a hurdling 37-yard reception later in the frame, fending off Jaguars defenders with a stiff arm. Walker added an 18-yard first-half catch. Somewhat of a breakout player in Ken Whisenhunt's first year as head coach, Walker has provided steady TE1 value even amongst Tennessee's musical chairs at quarterback. The Titans face the Redskins next.

Walker was as efficient as ever, but the Titans' quarterback problems are inevitably going to catch up to their pass catchers. Walker was the victim in this game, while Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter had big games. Walker will continue to be a mid-range to low-end TE1 when Tennessee meets Jacksonville in Week 6.

Delanie Walker admits his shoulder injury could bother him for the rest of the season.

Walker appears to be in the same boat as Jordan Cameron, though he's yet to miss any time. Walker also remained effective as he played through the ailment in Week 4. He'll have the Titans' Week 9 bye to try to get closer to 100 percent.
Oct 2 - 3:50 PM

Oct 1 - 2:36 PM

Delanie Walker caught five passes for 84 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Colts.

Walker was one of the only players to show up for the Titans on Sunday. He was targeted seven times on the day, and skied up for a pass early in the game before catching a seven-yard touchdown in double-coverage late in the second quarter. After four games, Walker is on pace to catch 88 balls for 1,268 yards and 12 touchdowns. They would all easily be career-highs. Walker is setting himself apart as the most reliable option in the Titans' passing game. He's a legit TE1.
Sep 28 - 4:55 PM

Delanie Walker (shoulder) is active for Week 4 against the Colts.

Walker missed some practice reps this week, but he was never in any real danger of missing Sunday's game. Expect Charlie Whitehurst's insertion into the starting lineup for an injured Jake Locker (wrist) to benefit Walker. He's a top-end TE1 option against a Colts defense that hemorrhages points to tight ends.
Sep 28 - 11:25 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Delanie Walker (shoulder) will play against the Colts.

Walker was limited Thursday and Friday and is listed as questionable for the AFC South tilt. Titans beat writers have expressed little concern about his status. Fire Walker up as a light TE1, even with Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback.

Delanie Walker (shoulder, questionable) was limited in Friday's practice.

Walker didn't practice Wednesday, then was limited on Thursday and Friday. He did tell reporters after Friday's session that he believes he has a "great chance" to play against the Colts. It looks like Charlie Whitehurst will be Walker's QB. Perhaps Whitehurst will check down relentlessly to Walker. Or perhaps Whitehurst will go 11-of-27 for 125 yards. All bets are off.
Sep 26 - 1:25 PM

Delanie Walker (shoulder) returned to Titans practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It puts Walker on pace to suit up against the Colts. Even with Jake Locker (wrist) likely to be sidelined, Walker will be a TE1. Backup Charlie Whitehurst is among the league's preeminent check-down artists. He's going to pepper Walker and Kendall Wright with short passes.
