Justin Hunter exited Sunday's Week 17 game against the Texans with a shoulder injury.
Hunter saw two targets, failing to reel in either, before leaving in the second quarter. Kendall Wright, Nate Washington, and Damian Williams will handle receiver duties for the rest of the afternoon if Hunter is done. Hunter, the 34th overall pick in April's draft has 18 catches for 354 yards and four touchdowns in 2013. He should have a much bigger role on offense as a sophomore. Sun, Dec 29, 2013 02:21:00 PM

Justin Hunter was held without a catch in Week 16 against the Jaguars.

He finished with just one target in the passing game. Hunter was as the Titans' No. 3 receiver with Kenny Britt a healthy scratch. He's struggled with inconsistency throughout his rookie season, but has the potential to emerge as a viable WR3 in 2014 fantasy drafts.

Justin Hunter is inactive for Week 15 against the Cardinals.

It's significant because Hunter is coming off of a huge game against Denver and recently emerged as the Titans' top big-play threat in the passing game. Per the Nashville Tennessean, Hunter is a healthy scratch for violating team rules. The rest of the Titans' Week 15 inactives are QB John Skelton, OL Kevin Matthews, OL Byron Stingily, WR Damian Williams, DB Micah Pellerin, and DT Mike Martin.

Justin Hunter played on 38-of-50 snaps (76.0 percent) in Sunday's loss at Denver.

Interestingly, Nate Washington played 39 snaps and Kendall Wright got 38. So there were no clear-cut options in two-wide sets as all three rotated in evenly. Still, relying on a raw rookie in a Ryan Fitzpatrick offense is a recipe fantasy owners will want to avoid. Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals loom in Week 15.

Justin Hunter caught four passes for 114 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 loss at Denver.

Hunter led the team in targets with eight, although he operated as the No. 3 receiver behind Nate Washington and Kendall Wright. His touchdown came when he roasted Quentin Jammer and Ryan Fitzpatrick somehow muscled up for a 41-yard bomb. The second-round rookie is a player, but he's extremely difficult to trust as a WR3 in this passing game. The Week 15 matchup against the Cardinals is no picnic as Hunter might see some of dominant cover corner Patrick Peterson.

Justin Hunter was held to one catch for nine yards in the Titans' Week 13 loss to the Colts.

Coming off his 100-plus-yard breakout game in Week 12, this stat line is further proof that Hunter is bound for inconsistency as a rookie No. 3 receiver in a somewhat dysfunctional passing offense. He'll be no more than a Hail Mary WR3 play when the Titans take on the Broncos in Week 14.

Speaking Monday, Titans coach Mike Munchak said Justin Hunter earned himself "even more" playing time with Sunday's 6/109/1 performance against the Raiders.

Hunter played 41-of-81 snaps in Oakland, but it wasn't a season high. Hunter was on the field for 54-of-73 plays in Week 10, and was on a similar path in Week 11 before getting knocked out with a concussion. Hunter is worth a flier as a WR4/5, but is going to be a highly inconsistent fantasy option as the No. 3, at best, option in a Ryan Fitzpatrick-led offense.

Justin Hunter caught six passes for 109 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 12 win at Oakland.

It was obviously Hunter's best game of the season and it came with Damian Williams sidelined by a quad issue. The rookie made the Raiders look silly on a 54-yard touchdown in the third quarter, catching a pass in front of two defenders about 20 yards down the field and then faking out both of them. Hunter is a talented player, but he's still the No. 3 wideout on a team with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback. He'd be a desperation WR4 against the Colts in Week 13.

Justin Hunter (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 12.

Hunter will be Tennessee's No. 3 receiver against the Raiders.
Fri, Nov 22, 2013 04:41:00 PM

Justin Hunter (concussion) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Hunter will be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Hunter played a season-high 54 snaps in Week 10, but is still barely on the re-draft league radar. He remains a strong hold in Dynasty leagues.

Justin Hunter (concussion) is practicing Wednesday.

Hunter suffered a concussion in Thursday night's loss to the Colts, but has been cleared to resume practicing. Barring a setback, he's now on track to play in Week 12 against the Raiders.
Wed, Nov 20, 2013 02:59:00 PM

Titans WR Justin Hunter (concussion) had not been cleared to practice as of Tuesday.

Hunter sustained his concussion in last Thursday's loss to the Colts. The second-round rookie has a total of seven catches for 122 yards with two touchdowns so far.
Wed, Nov 20, 2013 09:54:00 AM

Titans coach Mike Munchak confirmed WR Justin Hunter is dealing with concussion-like symptoms.

Hunter was injured in the fourth quarter of Thursday night's loss, and did not return. He could miss some practice time early next week, but is expected to be fine. Hunter will have 10 days to get cleared for Tennessee's Week 12 game against the Raiders.
Sat, Nov 16, 2013 07:52:00 PM

Titans rookie WR Justin Hunter was held without a catch in Tennessee's Week 11 loss to the Colts, and departed with a possible concussion.

Hunter got clocked on his lone target, a fourth-quarter jump ball. If Hunter does get diagnosed with a concussion, he'll have 10 days to get cleared for Tennessee's Week 12 game against the Raiders.
Fri, Nov 15, 2013 12:47:00 AM

Justin Hunter caught two passes for 51 yards in the Titans' Week 10 loss to the Jaguars.

Hunter is stepping into Tennessee's No. 3 receiver role, and benefited in terms of playing time Sunday after Damian Williams exited with an early quad injury. Hunter has definite big-play tools, drawing some A.J. Green comparisons coming out of the University of Tennessee. He's increasingly on the radar in 14- and 16-team fantasy leagues.
