Jason McCourty (groin) is questionable for the Titans Week 3 matchup against the Bengals.

Coty Sensabaugh would get the start opposite Blidi Wreh-Wilson if McCourty is unable to go. This is shaping up as a good matchup for A.J. Green, though his toe injury makes him something of a risky start.

Dexter McCluster (foot) is probable for Week 3 against the Bengals.

McCluster should see anywhere from 5-10 touches as the Titans' change-of-pace back, but he's nothing more than a RB4 in a mix-and-match backfield.
Sep 19 - 1:19 PM

Dexter McCluster (foot) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

The Titans' change-of-pace back is now on track to play against the Bengals. He's an RB4 for fantasy purposes. You should be able to do better.
Sep 18 - 3:23 PM

Dexter McCluster (foot) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's a good sign that McCluster is practicing, but his Week 3 status remains uncertain. If McCluster misses time, it would create an opportunity for rookie Bishop Sankey to get an expanded role.
Sep 17 - 3:01 PM

Titans signed LB James Anderson.

He's taking the roster spot of Zach Brown, who has been sent to injured reserve with a torn pectoral. Anderson has made 59 starts over the past four seasons, but been largely ineffective. Zaviar Gooden and Wesley Woodyard will pick up Brown's lost snaps.
Sep 16 - 5:16 PM

Justin Hunter played on 41-of-49 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Snaps were not the issue for Hunter as he burned owners with a 2-26-0 line on six targets. He was right there with Nate Washington (46 snaps) and Kendall Wright (42). With Hunter's usage not a real concern at this point, the breakout game we've been expecting will be coming soon. He remains a strong hold and boom-or-bust WR3 type heading into a Week 3 game at Cincy.

Dexter McCluster left the locker room Sunday with his right foot in a walking boot.

We didn't notice any injury to McCluster during the loss to the Cowboys as he played on 34-of-51 snaps and got five touches. Perhaps the boot is precautionary.
Sep 15 - 8:13 AM

Nate Washington caught 1-of-6 targets for one yard in Tennessee's Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

That's as brutal of a stat-line as you will ever see for a receiver. Jake Locker was embarrassingly focused on his veteran wideout before shifting gears to the more explosive Justin Hunter in the second half. The Titans have to decrease Washington's role and increase Hunter's if they want their offense to be at its most effective.
Sep 14 - 5:58 PM

Dexter McCluster rushed four times for 30 yards in the Titans' Week 2 loss to the Cowboys, adding a nine-yard reception.

McCluster was the third Titans' runner to get a carry behind Shonn Greene and Bishop Sankey, but the primary change-of-pace back ahead of Sankey, who was given only two touches. McCluster offers a nice real-life changeup for the Titans, but won't be nearly consistent enough to be relied on in fantasy leagues. He's waiver-wire fodder in 12-teamers.
Sep 14 - 5:49 PM

Bishop Sankey improved from No. 4 to No. 2 on the depth chart in Tennessee's Week 2 loss, but rushed just twice for three yards.

Sankey wasn't targeted in the passing game. Sankey got the rock much earlier than he did in Week 1, getting a look on Tennessee's second series. He still ended up getting out-touched by Dexter McCluster, however, and appears further than ever from early-season fantasy relevance. Shonn Greene has goal-line duties on lockdown, while McCluster will be a thorn in Sankey's side as a COP back. Sankey remains worth stashing in 12-14 team leagues, but it could be a while before you use him.
Sep 14 - 5:26 PM

Shonn Greene rushed five times for 40 yards in Tennessee's Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

For the second straight week, Greene wasn't targeted in the passing game. Greene again "led" the Titans' committee — which was only three members this week, shedding Leon Washington — but had nothing to show for it in a game where the Titans played from behind. Today made it clearer than ever that Greene's 2014 fantasy fortunes will live or die with his goal-line opportunities. He has a rough Week 3 matchup in the Bengals.
Sep 14 - 5:22 PM

Delanie Walker secured 10-of-14 targets for 142 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee's Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

Walker was the only player a struggling Jake Locker could find with any regularity. The catches tied a career high, while the yards were a new best. Walker's 61-yard touchdown in the third quarter was the longest grab of his career. He made a catch in traffic, destroyed CB Morris Claiborne and was off to the races with speed uncommon for a tight end. Despite the huge day, Walker remains a low-end TE1. He'll be up and down in what figures to be an inconsistent offense.
Sep 14 - 5:16 PM

Kendall Wright caught 3-of-5 targets for 31 yards in the Titans' Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

Wright and Justin Hunter took a backseat, as an inconsistent Jake Locker could only get on the same page with TE Delanie Walker. Wright was held to fewer than five catches just four times in all of 2013. He should bounce-back in PPR leagues in Week 3 against the Bengals.
Sep 14 - 5:13 PM

Justin Hunter caught 2-of-6 targets for 26 yards in Tennessee's Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

Ticketed for a breakout performance, Hunter laid an egg as Jake Locker struggled. Hunter was actually inches closer to a much-bigger day, but got tripped up on a potential 54-yard touchdown in the third quarter, and couldn't quite pull down what would have been a six-yard score four plays later. He also failed to corral a wobbling, but catchable, deep ball in the first half. We still think it's a matter of when, not if, Hunter goes off, but it won't be smooth sailing in Week 3, as the Titans must venture to Cincinnati.
Sep 14 - 4:35 PM

Jake Locker completed 18-of-34 passes for 234 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Tennessee's 26-10, Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

He added two rushes for nine yards. Locker's owners were lucky his numbers weren't worse, as he entered halftime an abysmal 4-of-12 for 26 yards. He was far-more assertive in the second half, but it was already too late for a Titans team that couldn't stop the run. Locker's first pick was a first-half air-ball to no one, while the second was a tipped pass Rolando McClain corralled with a circus catch. The start wasn't as bad as some of Locker's past disasters, but a major disappointment after his crisp Week 1. Bouncing back in Week 3 will be a tall task as the Titans travel to Cincinnati.
