Titans LCB Adoree' Jackson is out for Week 3 with a concussion.

He went down in the first half and was announced as done for the day to begin the third quarter. Jackson will be questionable for Week 4 versus Philly.
Sep 23 - 2:58 PM

Blaine Gabbert left Sunday's Week 3 game with a concussion.

Gabbert took a first-quarter hit so massive that he was noticeably woozy and eventually left the field with trainers. Marcus Mariota, dealing with a nerve problem in his throwing-arm elbow, has taken over at quarterback against Jacksonville.
Sep 23 - 1:40 PM

Titans declared RT Jack Conklin, WR Nick Williams, RB David Fluellen, OG Aaron Stinnie, OT Dennis Kelly, S Kendrick Lewis, and LB Kamalei Correa inactive for Week 3 against the Jaguars.

No surprises here; Conklin has yet to make his 2018 debut after tearing his ACL in January's playoffs. Kevin Pamphile is expected to start in his place.
Sep 23 - 11:35 AM

Marcus Mariota (elbow) is active for Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Blaine Gabbert is starting, but Mariota is available for backup duties. Of course, they're the only two quarterbacks on Tennessee's roster. Dealing with a nerve problem in his elbow that prevents him from fully gripping the ball, Mariota may still be weeks away from making his next official start.
Sep 23 - 11:32 AM

Titans QB Blaine Gabbert is expected to start in Week 3 against the Jaguars.

The Titans are "hoping" Marcus Mariota (elbow) can "grip the football as soon as possible", which is a vague timeline that leaves his return wide open. Blaine Gabbert is expected to make his second consecutive start in the interim. Gabbert completed 13-of-20 passes for 117 yards and one score against the Texans in Week 2 and, if looking for a positive note, will have LT Taylor Lewan (concussion) back protecting his blindside. Although they'll be on the field for nearly every offensive play, WR Corey Davis and TE Jonnu Smith can be promptly downgraded until Mariota returns.
Sep 23 - 12:07 AM

Titans RT Jack Conklin (ACL) is questionable for Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Conklin should have a chance to debut this week after sitting out the past two games while continuing his rehab for a torn ACL. Tennessee's O line should be at close to 100 percent if Conklin suits up against Jacksonville. Taylor Lewan, who missed last week's game with a concussion, cleared the league's protocol on Friday.
Sep 21 - 2:38 PM

Derrick Henry (back) is expected to play in Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Henry was removed from Tennessee's injury report and was a full participant in Friday's practice. Even so, he's been out-snapped, out-targeted, and has received fewer carries than teammate Dion Lewis so far this season. Henry is merely an RB3/RB4 stuck in a terrible matchup in Week 3.
Sep 21 - 2:31 PM

Marcus Mariota (elbow) is questionable for Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Coach Mike Vrabel said Mariota's status is the "same" as last week. He'll reportedly decide on Mariota's availability for Sunday within the next 24 hours. No matter who starts under center, the Titans' offensive line is in store for immediate improvement with LT Taylor Lewan (concussion) cleared to play. Although he recorded a team-high target share from Gabbert in Week 2, Corey Davis ultimately needs Mariota at the helm to breakout.
Sep 21 - 2:16 PM

Titans LT Taylor Lewan (concussion) passed his final test and was moved out of protocol.

Lewan was upgraded to "full" participant in Thursday's practice, so passing his final test was the last step en route to playing. His presence will immediately help whomever starts under center for the Titans against the Jaguars in Week 3.
Sep 21 - 9:38 AM

Derrick Henry (back) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

There's been no indication Henry is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Jaguars. From both an opponent and game-flow standpoint, the matchup could not be more poor. Henry is a fringe RB3 for Week 3.
Sep 20 - 4:05 PM

Titans LT Taylor Lewan (concussion) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Lewan needs to pass one more doctor's appointment before gaining full clearance. That's usually a formality after a player gets a "full" tag. His presence will be a big boost against the Jaguars' ferocious defense.
Sep 20 - 3:21 PM

Marcus Mariota (elbow) practiced again on Thursday.

According to the assembled press, Mariota was throwing the ball with more velocity. Neither Mariota nor coach Mike Vrabel have inspired much confidence about his Week 3 status, but it's looking like there's a legitimate chance he takes the reins back from Blaine Gabbert. If he does, Mariota will be facing the worst possible matchup in the Jaguars.
Sep 20 - 3:08 PM

Titans LT Taylor Lewan (concussion) is practicing Thursday.

Lewan told reporters he has still not been cleared, but he was headed out to the practice field. After being limited on Wednesday, any work on Thursday suggests he has avoided a setback and is on track to be cleared by Sunday.
Sep 20 - 12:30 PM

Marcus Mariota said the nerve issue in his arm needs "time to settle down."

On Monday, coach Mike Vrabel said there were "still throws Mariota can't make," but the quarterback was able to practice on Wednesday and seems to be moving in the correct direction. "It’s really the whole hand, but the numbness and the tingliness is a couple fingers, the weakness is kind of the whole hand and that’s what I’ve been working on," Mariota said. "Honestly, I think it’s close." Mariota will likely come down to a game-time decision again this week, but he appears to have a much better shot to play.
Sep 20 - 9:35 AM

Titans LT Taylor Lewan (concussion) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's a step in the right direction after Lewan didn't practice last week. Barring setbacks, Lewan should return Sunday after missing only one game. It's a needed upgrade to an offensive line playing without RT Jack Conklin.
