Kendall Wright (hamstring) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.
Wright hasn't practiced in three weeks and missed pretty much all of training camp and the first two preseason games. He's also going to now miss the all-important third exhibition. Coach Mike Mularkey has already expressed his frustration with Wright's injury issues over the past two years. Wright should still have the slot role when he gets back, but his leash will be tight.

Coach Mike Mularkey called Kendall Wright (hamstring) doubtful for the Titans' regular season dress rehearsal.

The Titans want to get Wright back in practice this week, but he will likely finish August having played no preseason snaps. Wright has been out since early in the month. Tennessee's two-receiver set to open the season is expected to have rookie Tajae Sharp bookending free agent pickup Rishard Matthews. Wright will play the slot when the Titans go to three-receiver packages.

The Titans are hopeful Kendall Wright (hamstring) will resume practicing this week.

Their target date for return is Wednesday, which is probably too late for Wright to play in the Titans' regular season dress rehearsal. Tennessee's slot receiver, Wright will open the season playing in three-wide sets between Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe. Wright is a low-ceiling, late-round flyer at best.

Kendall Wright will be sidelined a "couple more weeks" after an MRI showed fluid in his injured hamstring.

The news comes five days after coach Mike McCarthy called Wright out for his slow recovery. Harry Douglas and Tre McBride have been spending extra time in the slot during Wright's absence. Wright has zero fantasy value in one of the league's most jumbled receiver corps.

Kendall Wright (hamstring) remains sidelined.

It's been five days since Wright was called out by coach Mike Mularkey, but he's (wisely) not rushing his return. Wright is in danger of opening the season as a reserve, but is going to have a role in Tennessee's jumbled receiver corps no matter what. The Titans have a lot of bodies but basically zero certainty when it comes to catching passes.
Aug 9 - 4:23 PM

Coach Mike Mularkey called out Kendall Wright for "missing valuable time" with a hamstring injury.

Wright has been sidelined for the past three days. Mularkey seems a bit fed up with Wright's injuries, dating back to last season when he missed six games and parts of others with a knee problem. Coming off a career-worst year, Mularkey is putting Wright on notice. Jobs are up for grabs in Tennessee.

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.

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.
May 16 - 9:08 AM

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.
Mar 22 - 12:11 PM

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.
