Date: Team: Pos:

Titans C/G Andy Gallik underwent a knee scope and will miss "at least" the remainder of the preseason.

Last year's sixth-rounder, Gallik is competing for a backup job along the interior.

Kendall Wright (hamstring) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Wright hasn't practiced in three weeks and missed pretty much all of training camp and the first two preseason games. He's also going to now miss the all-important third exhibition. Coach Mike Mularkey has already expressed his frustration with Wright's injury issues over the past two years. Wright should still have the slot role when he gets back, but his leash will be tight.
Aug 24 - 3:38 PM

Coach Mike Mularkey promised Wednesday that the Titans will "find ways" to get Derrick Henry on the field this season.

Mularkey confirmed DeMarco Murray is the "starter," but the Titans are likely to use a two-back offense that could expand to three if Dexter McCluster is incorporated as the passing-down specialist. Henry has looked genuinely special this August. The Titans would be foolish to not give him 10-14 touches per game. With that said, Murray has dominated the first-team preseason snaps so far.
Aug 24 - 3:38 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said he knows Andre Johnson "can play."

Johnson has not made much of an impact through two preseason games, but that does not worry Mularkey. "He has been very competitive," he said. "He doesn’t have to do anything more for me to know he can play." While he might not have a big role, this quote makes it sound like Johnson is on track to make the team. The veteran managed 41 catches for 503 yards and four scores with the Colts last season.

Coach Mike Mularkey called Kendall Wright (hamstring) doubtful for the Titans' regular season dress rehearsal.

The Titans want to get Wright back in practice this week, but he will likely finish August having played no preseason snaps. Wright has been out since early in the month. Tennessee's two-receiver set to open the season is expected to have rookie Tajae Sharp bookending free agent pickup Rishard Matthews. Wright will play the slot when the Titans go to three-receiver packages.
Aug 22 - 3:50 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey expects his starters to play one half in Saturday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Marcus Mariota will try to put a bow on a preseason where he's thus far completed 14-of-15 passes for 149 yards. Khalil Mack and company will be a strong test in the dress rehearsal.
Aug 22 - 2:20 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said he is "really happy" with Rishard Matthews.

"He ran some really good routes yesterday," Mularkey said of Matthews' performance in the second preseason game. "His blocking has been very good. Everybody always talks about the receiving end of things, but his blocking has been very good as well." All the preseason buzz has been about rookie Tajae Sharpe, but Matthews is still likely the No. 1 receiver. It would not be surprising if he finished the season as the second-most targeted Titan behind Delanie Walker.
Aug 22 - 10:28 AM

The Titans are hopeful Kendall Wright (hamstring) will resume practicing this week.

Their target date for return is Wednesday, which is probably too late for Wright to play in the Titans' regular season dress rehearsal. Tennessee's slot receiver, Wright will open the season playing in three-wide sets between Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe. Wright is a low-ceiling, late-round flyer at best.
Aug 21 - 3:59 PM

Following Saturday's preseason game, coach Mike Mularkey said rookie Tajae Sharpe has "already gained the trust" of Marcus Mariota and the Titans' coaching staff.

Sharpe's placement with the first-team offense in the spring was widely speculated as a motivational tactic aimed at Dorial Green-Beckham. Instead, Sharpe has run away with a starting job, shining in padded practices and in preseason games. He erupted for 6-68 receiving in one half of work against the Panthers on Saturday. There are no guarantees on Tennessee's target distribution, but Sharpe is making a case for a significant piece of the pie. He's worth a look in the double-digit rounds of PPR drafts.
Aug 20 - 6:55 PM

David Cobb rushed six times for 27 yards Saturday against the Panthers.

Cobb lost a fumble on his first carry of the game, but he bounced back with a solid showing. More importantly, he clearly worked ahead of Bishop Sankey and Antonio Andrews as the No. 3 running back. Those three backs are likely competing for one roster spot.
Aug 20 - 6:24 PM

Derrick Henry rushed five times for 31 yards against the Panthers Saturday.

Henry saw some snaps with the first-team offense, but the vast majority of his work came after Marcus Mariota left the field. Henry once again looked strong against backup defenders, gaining 25 yards on his first three carries of the second half and consistently gaining yards after contact. It is going to be difficult for the Titans to keep the talented rookie on the sidelines this season.
Aug 20 - 5:30 PM

Tajae Sharpe hauled in all six of his targets for 68 yards against the Panthers Saturday.

It was an impressive performance for the rookie, who worked as a clear starter with the first-team. He made a tough catch to convert a 3rd-and-14 on the first drive of the game, but he really turned on the jets in the second quarter, making four catches for 38 yards to help the Titans to a 9-play, 81-yard touchdown drive. Rishard Matthews still will likely serve as the No. 1, but Sharpe has been making his case all offseason. He is worth a look in the double-digit rounds.
Aug 20 - 4:58 PM

Marcus Mariota completed 9-of-10 passes for 104 yards, one touchdown, and one interception against the Panthers Saturday.

Mariota added 13 yards on the ground. The offense started slowly, and Mariota did not help matters by throwing a questionable interception on the first drive. It ended up being his only incompletion of the game. Mariota really found a rhythm with Tajae Sharpe early in the second quarter, and he capped his final drive with a nice throw on the move to Harry Douglas for a 23-yard touchdown. He is now 14-of-15 for 149 yards this preseason.
Aug 20 - 4:06 PM

The Titans are getting S Daimion Stafford reps with the first-team defense.

Stafford is reportedly having a better training camp than Da’Norris Searcy. ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky thinks he could open the year as a starter. Stafford is solid against the run, but wouldn’t be much of an upgrade over Searcy. Even if he starts, his cover skills should limit him to base downs.

ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky expects Delanie Walker to lead the Titans in targets.

Walker led Tennessee with 133 targets last year. The Titans project to be more run heavy with the additions of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry, making him likely to decline from his 94/1,088/6 line. Walker is currently getting drafted as the TE6.
