Titans WR Justin Hunter has caught 2-of-9 targets (22 percent) this preseason.

It is a very small sample size, but it is a concern considering Hunter has caught a Stephen-Hill like 43 percent of his targets through two seasons. Hunter has reportedly shown well in training camp this season, but that improvement has yet to be seen in games. Hunter will struggle to find the field if he cannot become more consistent.

Justin Hunter was held without a catch in Tennessee's third preseason game.

Hunter played exclusively with the second team, with Hakeem Nicks starting opposite Kendall Wright. All four of his targets came on deep routes. Hunter has just two catches for 14 yards through three preseason games. Hunter isn't a recommended late-round flyer.

The felony assault charge against Titans WR Justin Hunter has been reduced to a misdemeanor.

Hunter was arrested July 3 at a Virginia Beach bar. He was originally charged with "felony malicious wounding", but is now "only" facing allegations of misdemeanor assault and battery. It's well within the realm of possibility that Hunter beats the lesser charge, or that it's further reduced in court. Hunter goes back before the judge this upcoming Tuesday.
Aug 28 - 3:34 PM

Justin Hunter's preliminary hearing for a felony assault charge has been moved to September 1.

The hearing was originally set for September 3, which is the date of the Titans' preseason finale. The charge stems from a July 3 brawl at a Virginia Beach bar in which Hunter was allegedly involved. The Titans have said they plan to "let the legal process play out." Hunter is participating in training camp.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Justin Hunter is "trending up" at Titans practices and wants to see him carry it over into games.

Reports out of Titans camp have been glowing about Hunter since his July arrest. Hunter played 26 snaps in Tennessee's preseason opener, running alongside Dorial Green-Beckham behind Kendall Wright, Hakeem Nicks, and Harry Douglas. He's always looked good in practice, but as we all saw last season, it hasn't translated to real games. Hunter is merely a late-round flier at this point.
Aug 17 - 6:53 PM

Titans WR coach Shawn Jefferson said "all signs point" to Justin Hunter having a good year.

Hunter and Hakeem Nicks were listed with the second team on Tennessee’s first unofficial depth chart. The Titans have supported Hunter through his July off-field arrest, but his mental game and lack of aggressiveness remain obstacles in him living up to his potential. A strong preseason from Hunter or Dorial Green-Beckham would push Harry Douglas into three-wide sets.

The Titans' website reports Justin Hunter has been "pretty consistent" in camp.

Consistency has often eluded the third-year pro, so it's a good sign. Marcus Mariota is a towering upgrade on the quarterbacks Hunter dealt with through the first two years of his career, and could help unlock Hunter's long-rumored NFL potential. He's an intriguing post-hype sleeper for 2015.
Aug 8 - 9:58 AM

The attorney for Justin Hunter said he expects his client's assault case to "end well"

Hunter's side of the nasty barfight is far different from the one his accuser and police have portrayed. "There were a number of people involved and Justin is the only person that they identified," attorney Toby Vick said. "Here you have an NFL player — with what they believe to have deep pockets — identified when lots of things were going on in there. I think it's going to emerge that (Hunter and his friends) weren't even the aggressors." Hunter is participating in Titans camp as the case plays out.
Aug 4 - 7:44 AM

Justin Hunter reported for Titans training camp on Thursday.

"We're supporting Justin, excited to have him on field," were the words of coach Ken Whisenhunt. The league has said it's "reviewing" Hunter's assault case. Hunter has been a bust since being the No. 34 overall pick of the 2013 draft, but it appears his roster spot is safe as the Titans transition into the Marcus Mariota era.
Jul 30 - 1:17 PM

The NFL confirms it is "reviewing" Justin Hunter's assault case.

As it does every off-the-field issue. "That is the extent of what we can say at this point," said spokesman Greg Aiello. "I can’t speculate on outcomes." Hunter was charged with felony assault for allegedly breaking a man's jaw on July 3. The Titans will let him participate in camp in the interim.
Jul 27 - 1:55 PM

The prosecution says Justin Hunter "sucker-punched" his victim after the bar brawl had settled down.

Hunter allegedly started the July 3 fight by punching the man in the face twice. After the man was bent over and spitting out blood on the sidewalk, Hunter then allegedly "sucker-punched" him again before leaving. The man suffered a broken jaw and a cracked tooth. Hunter was released from jail on $25,000 bond on Tuesday and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Sept. 3. The Titans plan to let him participate in training camp as the legal process runs its course.
Jul 23 - 9:19 AM

The Titans expect Justin Hunter to participate when training camp opens next week despite his recent arrest for felony assault.

The Titans' plan is to "let the legal process play out," and for Hunter to practice. The approach is likely in the best interests of both Hunter and the team. Although Hunter has been a disappointment on the field through two NFL seasons, he has no prior history of causing problems off of it.
Jul 21 - 9:49 PM

Justin Hunter is eligible to be released from jail on $25,000 bond in Virginia Beach, Va.

Hunter was arraigned on Tuesday and is expected to be released from jail this afternoon. Under terms of his release, Hunter has an 11 PM - 5 AM curfew and isn't allowed to consume alcohol. His felonious assault charge is punishable by 5-20 years in prison and a $100,000 fine. Hunter will likely plea down at some point during his legal process. A preliminary hearing is set for September 3.
Jul 21 - 4:29 PM

Police say the alleged victim in the Justin Hunter felonious assault case sustained "serious, but not life-threatening" injuries.

Hunter was charged with stabbing, cutting, malicious intent and wounding as well as the felonious assault charge after a brawl inside the Sandbar Raw Bar. The victim was admitted to the hospital with broken bones. Hunter will be arraigned later Tuesday and will likely be placed on the Commissioner's Exempt list until the case is resolved. The Titans could also choose to simply move on from a player that flopped badly on the field last season.
