Titans OLB Derrick Morgan (knee) said he is ready for the season opener.

Morgan looked doubtful for Week 1 last week, but he returned to practice Monday and got in a limited session Wednesday. Rookie Harold Landry (ankle) also practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, meaning the Titans could surprisingly be a full strength at outside linebacker on Sunday.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan (knee) is not expected to be ready for Week 1.

It's especially concerning because explosive rookie OLB Harold Landry (ankle) also appears unlikely to play in Week 1, leaving Brian Orakpo as the Titans' lone means of generating any kind of edge pressure. This is good news for Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins' offense, especially deep threat Kenny Stills.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan (knee surgery) is questionable for Week 1.

The Titans' 2017 sack leader, Morgan was injured in the second preseason game. He's been slapped with a 4-5 week timeline after going under the knife. His absence would create an opportunity for No. 41 overall pick Harold Landry to earn more snaps.
Aug 23 - 5:35 PM

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan (knee) will return for Week 16.

Leading Tennessee in sacks (7.5), Morgan is a welcomed addition to a Titans pass rush that is already on fire with 23 sacks over its last four games.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan (knee) has been ruled out for Week 15.

It's not a surprise after Morgan sat out last week and didn't return to practice. The Titans will continue to start Erik Walden in his place.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan is day to day with a strained abdominal.

Morgan suffered the injury in Monday's win over the Colts. Morgan has started all six games thus far this season, playing about 75 percent of the snaps.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday.

Morgan sat out last week after tweaking his hamstring in the season opener. He was only limited on Wednesday, but this early practice puts him on track to play.

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.
