Titans declared OLB Derrick Morgan, WR Kendall Wright, OL Josh Kline, OG Sebastian Tretola, TE Jace Amaro, CB LeShaun Sims, and DL Austin Johnson inactive for Week 2 against the Lions.

Morgan is a big loss for a defense which struggles to get pressure. Rookie Kevin Dodd should see more snaps with Morgan out. Wright could still be a couple weeks away.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Lions.

He didn't suit up at practice this week. Second-round rookie Kevin Dodd will likely draw the start in his place. Consider Morgan week-to-week.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan (hamstring) is day to day, and questionable for Week 2.

It means Morgan escaped without a major injury. If he misses Week 2, he should be back for Week 3.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan exited Week 1 with a hamstring injury.

He was holding the back of his left leg at the end of a third-down play. He got attention on the field before limping off. He is questionable to return. The Titans defense took a nosedive after losing Morgan last season.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan has joined free agent LT Eugene Monroe in asking the NFL to study the potential benefits of medical marijuana.

"I feel like the NFL has a responsibility to look into it, to delegate time and money to research this for its players," Morgan said. "There's a lot of people suffering and a lot of people that can benefit from cannabis as a medical treatment." There were whispers Monroe was cut by the Ravens in part because the team didn't agree with his stance, but Morgan isn't worried about any backlash. "It's about not only us," he said, "but former players, future players and more so society as a whole."

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan (shoulder surgery) is "ahead of schedule," but has yet to be cleared to resume practicing.

Morgan tore his labrum in October, and went under the knife in December. A Titans starter since 2011, Morgan will remain so for 2016 as long as his health cooperates. He was very effective in 2014 before his injury took its toll last season.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said OLB Derrick Morgan (shoulder) may not be ready for the start of OTAs.

Morgan suffered a torn labrum in his shoulder last October. He attempted to play through the injury, but was forced to injured reserve in December. The Titans had a surprisingly effective pass rush with Morgan and Brian Orakpo healthy, but the defense fell off a cliff once Morgan went down. Getting him back will be a big boost.

Titans placed OLB Derrick Morgan (shoulder surgery) on injured reserve, ending his season.

He has a torn labrum in the shoulder. The Titans' pass defense has collapsed in the absence of Morgan and top CB Jason McCourty (groin surgery), getting pasted by Derek Carr, Blake Bortles, and Ryan Fitzpatrick in consecutive weeks. Morgan was having a solid year before going down, amassing 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble in Tennessee's initial ten games. Replacement David Bass has been ineffective.

Titans declared OLB Derrick Morgan, RB Dexter McCluster, CB Cody Riggs, T/G Jamon Meredith, WR Andrew Turzilli, DE Ropati Pitoitua, and DL Mike Martin inactive for Week 13 against the Jaguars.

Morgan hurt his shoulder a couple weeks back and may need surgery. McCluster has been sidelined with a knee injury. Martin also has a knee issue.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan may need shoulder surgery after the season.

He only played 17 snaps in Week 11 and missed last week. Morgan is listed as questionable for Week 13 against the Jaguars. Morgan has received above-average pass-rush marks from Pro Football Focus, managing 30 combined sacks, hits, and hurries. He signed a $27-million deal back in March.

Titans re-signed DE/OLB Derrick Morgan to a four-year, $27 million contract with $10.5 million guaranteed.

Tennessee was expected to pursue an edge rusher in the draft, but that won't be necessary with Morgan and Brian Orakpo in the fold. Tampa Bay, Dallas, and Atlanta were also in the hunt for Morgan. Morgan's 6.5 sacks last season tied a career high. He also played stout run defense. Having just turned 26 years old, Morgan was smartly made a priority to re-sign by the Titans. Tennessee now has some intriguing pieces in the front seven, with Jurell Casey on the line, Orakpo and Morgan off the edge, and promising sophomore Avery Williamson at inside linebacker.
