Kendall Wright caught two passes for nine yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.
There would be no third-year breakout for Kendall Wright -- not with Jake Locker, Zach Mettenberger and Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback. But there were more warning signs than just inept QB play on Wright, who thought he would be Ken Whisenhunt's Keenan Allen this season. Too often Wright was an afterthought as he averaged just 6.6 targets per game on a team devoid of playmakers. Wright's contract year in 2015 would have more promise if Jameis Winston can step right in and be a difference-maker. The Titans hold the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 draft.

Kendall Wright caught 4-of-5 targets for 73 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Wright had missed each of the Titans' past two games with a hand issue, but looked no worse for the wear in Jacksonville. Wright was shaken up after one of his longer grabs, but was never announced with an injury, and quickly returned. He'll be a WR4 for Week 17 against the Colts.

Kendall Wright (hand) is active for Week 16 against the Jaguars.

As is Delanie Walker (knee). It's a nice boost for fill-in quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, and limits Nate Washington's WR3 appeal. Wright isn't wearing any protective gear on his hand, and can be fired up as a WR4. Inactive for the Titans are QB Zach Mettenberger, LT Taylor Lewan, DB Jemea Thomas, LB Zaviar Gooden, LB Dontay Moch, OT Terren Jones and DT Mike Martin.

Kendall Wright (hand) is listed as questionable for Thursday night against Jacksonville.

Wright was limited in practice this week, putting him on track to play. He doesn't expect to need a cast or splint on his injured hand if he suits up. Wright is a low-end WR3 for Week 16.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 02:25:00 PM

Kendall Wright (hand) remained limited in Tuesday's practice, and expects to know by Wednesday if he can suit up for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.

Wright says he won't be wearing a cast or splint if he suits up against the Jags. Wright has missed the Titans' past two games. He'd be a plug-and-play WR3 if he can get back for Thursday Night Football, albeit a low-upside one.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 03:15:00 PM

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said he hopes Kendall Wright (hand) can return for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.

Wright would have been listed as a "limited" participant if the Titans practiced on Monday. If he can't go, Nate Washington and Derek Hagan will have to start at receiver again for quarterback Charlie Whitehurst. The Jaguars' D/ST is a streaming option.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 08:35:00 AM

Titans declared Kendall Wright (hand) inactive for Week 15 against the Jets.

Wright got in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday, but was downgraded to "DNP" on Friday. Delaine Walker should see a ton of targets from Jake Locker, but no one else in the Titans' decimated passing game is worth a look. Titans also declared QB Zach Mettenberger, LB Kameron Wimbley, OT Taylor Lewan, DT Mike Martin, OT Byron Stingily and S Daimion Stafford inactive for Week 15.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 02:40:00 PM

Kendall Wright (hand) is listed as questionable for Week 15.

He's shaping up as a game-time decision. The Titans' wide receivers are best left avoided in Week 15. Delanie Walker is worth a look as a TE1.
Fri, Dec 12, 2014 01:25:00 PM

Kendall Wright (hand) remained "limited" on Thursday.

Wright is hoping to play with a splint on his injured hand, but his status can't be taken for granted. It's possible he'll end up a game-time decision against the Jets. With Justin Hunter (spleen) lost for the season, Wright will be a plug-and-play WR3 if he can give it a go for Week 15.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 02:47:00 PM

Kendall Wright (hand) returned to practice Wednesday.

Wright is hoping to play this week with a splint on his hand. He'll be the favorite for targets if active, but will be hard to trust as more than a WR3 against the Jets.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 02:21:00 PM

The Titans are holding out hope Kendall Wright can return from his hand injury in Week 15 against the Jets.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt expressed hope Monday that Wright could play with a splint on his hand "if the swelling and pain subside." With a crack in his hand and Jake Locker at quarterback, Wright would be very difficult to trust as a Week 15 fantasy option. With Wright inactive for Week 14 against the Giants, Nate Washington (3-56-0) was outproduced by journeyman Derek Hagan (6-62-0).

Kendall Wright (hand) is inactive for Week 14 against the Giants.

The Titans will roll with Derek Hagan and Kris Durham behind Nate Washington. It's a sorry lineup for Tennessee. The season can't end soon enough for them.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 11:46:00 AM

Kendall Wright (hand) is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Wright didn't practice the last two days and isn't expected to play against the Giants. With Justin Hunter on I.R., Nate Washington and Derek Hagan will be forced into starting roles. Wright "hopes" to return in Week 15.
Fri, Dec 5, 2014 04:41:00 PM

Kendall Wright (hand) said Friday that he "hopes" to return for Week 15.

He's "not optimistic" about playing Sunday against the Giants. The Titans' beat writers don't expect Wright to play, either, leaving Nate Washington and Derek Hagan at wideout. Wright has been a big fantasy disappointment this year.
Fri, Dec 5, 2014 01:34:00 PM

Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean expects Kendall Wright (hand) to miss Week 14 against the Giants.

Expect lots of Delanie Walker targets. Wyatt noticed Wright donning a splint on his right wrist Friday, and is "thinking he's a no-go" for Sunday's game. Nate Washington and Derek Hagan would take over as Tennessee's primary wideouts, with perhaps Kris Durham mixing in. Justin Hunter is on I.R.
