TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt said he "liked what [he] saw from Kendall Wright this offseason."
Coach Mike Mularkey said he is "expecting a lot" from Wright in May, but there was not much chatter about the fifth-year receiver's performance during the offseason program. With Dorial Green-Beckham seemingly falling out of favor, Wright could establish himself as one of the primary targets in the passing game. Basically undrafted in standard leagues, he could prove something of a value. Jul 23 - 10:09 AM

Titans first-year OC Terry Robiskie made it clear that Kendall Wright will no longer be permitted to "freelance" routes in his offense.

Wright complained publicly when Ken Whisenhunt refused to let him freelance, as Wright was allowed to do under previous regimes. Robiskie will treat Wright like Whisenhunt did. "Well he don’t have any freelance," Robiskie said. "No. He won’t freelance. He ain’t got no more free (reign), that freelance is done." Wright is competing for snaps with a host of wideouts, including Dorial Green-Beckham, Harry Douglas, Rishard Matthews, and impressive rookie Tajae Sharpe.

Titans WR Kendall Wright says he's added 12 pounds of muscle, bulking up to 195.

Wright is listed at 191, but was apparently playing closer to 183 last season. Wright has long been prone to minor injury, so maybe some added muscle will make him more durable (we're not counting on it). Wright has just 1,123 combined yards over the past two seasons (24 games). With Rishard Matthews now in the fold and Dorial Green-Beckham improving, Wright should struggle for WR4 value in a run-first offense.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said he is "expecting a lot" from WR Kendall Wright.

In addition to Wright, Mularkey said he expected improvement across the board from a receiver corps which combined for just 130 receptions last season. "They all know they’re going to be coached harder than any position there is," Mularkey said. "If there’s a position on this team that could be better, it’s that one." Tennessee added potential starter Rishard Matthews and has four former or current receivers coaches on the staff including Mularkey and OC Terry Robiskie. Although they are committed to an #ExoticSmashmouth offense, the Titans know they need much more from their young wideouts.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Kendall Wright "has potential that still has not been pulled out of him."

"Every offseason you hope that he recognizes that, what his capabilities are, and how bad he wants to see it as much as we do when the season starts," Mularkey said. "I’m hoping that’s the case this year." Wright caught 94 passes for 1,079 yards as a sophomore, but he has struggled with consistency and injuries in the two years since. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Wright needs to prove he can be a consistent weapon in what should be an improved offense.

Titans declared WR Kendall Wright, QB Marcus Mariota, WR Damaris Johnson, OT Taylor Lewan, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, DE Ropati Pitoitua, and S Josh Aubrey inactive for Week 17.

There's no surprises. Dorial Green-Beckham and Harry Douglas will start outside.
Jan 3 - 11:40 AM

Kendall Wright (knee) has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Colts.

Wright missed six games this season and posted a career-worst 36-408-3 receiving line in an awfully disappointing year. Wright is under contract for $7.32 million next season, but the Titans may not deem him worthy of that. Dorial Green-Beckham and Delanie Walker have passed Wright.
Jan 1 - 12:52 PM

Kendall Wright (knee) remained sidelined Thursday.

Wright seems poised to miss the finale of what's been a bitterly disappointing season.
Thu, Dec 31, 2015 02:04:00 PM

Kendall Wright (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Interim coach Mike Mularkey said on Tuesday he hoped Wright would practice Wednesday, but that's not the case. The 2015 disappointment isn't likely to play Week 17 against the Colts and is off the fantasy radar anyway.
Wed, Dec 30, 2015 02:40:00 PM

Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey said the team hopes to have Kendall Wright (knee) back at practice Wednesday.

Wright aggravated an MCL injury which has bothered him most of the season against the Texans, but he will still attempt to give it a go in a meaningless final game. Even if he plays, Wright is well off the fantasy map.

Kendall Wright aggravated his MCL injury in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Texans.

It's to the same left knee in which Wright injured his MCL earlier this season, costing him three games. Wright had just returned from a rib injury that cost him two more games. "(Team doctors said) that my knee wasn't stable enough to go out there," Wright said after Sunday's loss. "I wanted to out there but the doctors didn't think it was OK for me to go out there."

Kendall Wright exited Week 16 against the Texans with a knee injury.

Wright took a big shot to his left leg at the end of a slant in the first quarter. He is officially questionable to return. Wright caught three early targets for 18 yards before exiting.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 01:31:00 PM

Kendall Wright (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 16.

Wright will return to the lineup after his two-game absence.
Fri, Dec 25, 2015 04:46:00 PM

Kendall Wright (ribs) practiced again on Thursday, getting in a full session.

Wright will be good to go against the Texans, but is no longer on the fantasy radar.
Thu, Dec 24, 2015 02:26:00 PM

Kendall Wright (ribs) said he will play Week 16 against the Texans.

"I am tired of being in the training room and ready to be out there," Wright said. "It’s painful to watch when you want to be out there helping your teammates. It’s not something you want to do." Wright has not had more than 46 receiving yards since Week 3. With Zach Mettenberger running the show, Wright does not need to be in fantasy lineups.
