Lions signed S Chris Hope, formerly of the Falcons, to a one-year, $940,000 contract.
A deep, centerfield-type safety, Hope is in a clear state of decline going on age 33. For his part, Hope shouldn't take long to learn Detroit's defense after playing under Jim Schwartz in Tennessee. He'll be a backup if he sticks. Mon, Jun 24, 2013 04:37:00 PM

Falcons signed S Chris Hope, formerly of the Titans.

Hope, who turns 32 in September, recorded 25 tackles and one interception in 10 appearances with Tennessee last year, making two starts and losing his job to Jordan Babineaux. Though he's clearly on the decline, Hope gives Atlanta experience at safety behind starters Thomas DeCoud and William Moore. He'll likely compete with Shann Schillinger and rookie Charles Mitchell for two spots.

Titans SS Chris Hope has been medically cleared to return from his fractured forearm.

"He is at a position where he could be worked in some plays," said coach Mike Munchak. It sounds like Hope won't necessarily get his starting job back from Jordan Babineaux, who's racked up at least seven tackles in four straight games.

SS Chris Hope (arm) is inactive for the Titans' Week 9 tilt against the Bengals.

Jordan Babineaux will continue to fill in for Hope at strong safety. QB Rusty Smith, LB Colin McCarthy, C Kevin Matthews, T Byron Stingily, DT Zach Clayton, and DE William Hayes round out the list.

Titans declared S Chris Hope, QB Rusty Smith, OL Byron Stingily, OL Kevin Matthews, DT Zach Clayton, DE William Hayes and LB Colin McCarthy inactive for Week 7 against the Texans.

Jordan "Big Play Babs" Babineaux will continue to fill in for Hope at strong safety. The Titans are relatively healthy otherwise coming out of the bye week.

Titans SS Chris Hope's broken arm requires surgery, and will sideline him 4-to-6 weeks.

If Hope proves to be a quick healer, he could miss as few as three games with the Titans' bye coming in Week 6. If he proves to be slow healing, he could eventually be headed to injured reserve. Fill-in Jordan Babineaux played well when Hope missed Weeks 2 and 3 with a shoulder injury, so the Titans do not need to rush him back.

Titans HC Mike Munchak expects SS Chris Hope (broken arm) to return in 2011.

"He is a big part of our defense, and the good news is he should be able to come back this year and play," Munchak said. Hope has already missed two games this season with a shoulder injury, and could be out for well over a month if his arm requires surgery. With Jordan Babineaux playing well in Hope's absence, the Titans can take a wait-and-see approach with their veteran safety.

Titans SS Chris Hope suffered a broken forearm in the team's Week 4 win over Cleveland.

It's a season-threatening injury for Hope, who's been trying to play through a separated shoulder. The 31-year-old's body may be breaking down. Jordan Babineaux has played well enough that the Titans may not wait out Hope's injury, and instead place him on I.R. "Big Play Babs" had four solo tackles against the Browns, and also returned an interception 97 yards for a touchdown.

Titans SS Chris Hope (shoulder) is on track to return to the starting lineup Sunday against the Browns.

The Titans didn't exactly miss Hope the past two weeks. Jordan Babineaux was a plus in run defense while holding up fine in coverage. Under new coordinator Jerry Gray, the Titans are first in the NFL with 261.0 yards per game allowed through three weeks.

Titans SS Chris Hope (shoulder) is expected to return to practice this week.

Hope has missed the last two games, allowing Jordan Babineaux to compile 10 tackles. "We're hoping again that his shoulder continues to get stronger and that he will be able to help us in Cleveland," coach Mike Munchak said of Hope. IDP owners should get him back on their radars. Hope had 101 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble, an interception and five passes defensed last season.

Titans declared SS Chris Hope (shoulder) inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Jordan Babineaux will start in place of Hope, who sounds close to a return. Otherwise, the Titans are very healthy. Kenny Britt (hamstring) is ready to go and will be facing a Champ Bailey-less secondary.
Sun, Sep 25, 2011 12:00:00 PM

Titans SS Chris Hope (questionable, shoulder) is expected to miss his second straight game in Week 3.

HC Mike Munchak said Hope would "probably be available if we needed him," but that the Titans are planning to err on the side of caution. Jordan Babineaux will again start in his place. If Hope has been dropped in your IDP league, he'll certainly be worth adding once he gets back to 100 percent health.

Titans declared SS Chris Hope, DE William Hayes, WR Damian Williams, QB Rusty Smith, CB Chris Hawkins, OT Byron Stingily, and C Kevin Matthews inactive for Week 2 against the Ravens.

Jordan Babineaux will start in place of Hope while Dave Ball fills in for Hayes at defensive end. It will be interesting to see if Babineaux can keep the job with a strong performance. Lavelle Hawkins will take Williams' spot as the third receiver, but he's not a fantasy option.
Sun, Sep 18, 2011 11:51:00 AM

Titans SS Chris Hope (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Week 2 and is expected to be replaced by Jordan Babineaux.

Hope's shoulder was dislocated in the team's Week 1 loss. "It's gonna take more than a couple of days to have him ready to play on Sunday," said Titans coach Mike Munchak. "We'll definitely hold him this week and see how he is next week." Babineaux isn't a bad IDP fill-in against a typically run-heavy Ravens offense. Hope's 49-game starts streak will come to an end.
Fri, Sep 16, 2011 02:55:00 PM

Titans SS Chris Hope's (shoulder) status for Week 2 is in "serious doubt."

Hope has yet to practice this week after his shoulder popped out of place in Week 1's loss to the Jaguars, and will likely be spelled by Jordan Babineaux against the Ravens. Hope has started 49 consecutive games for the Titans.
