Tajae Sharpe (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

We've yet to see real reason for concern over Sharpe's status, but Kendall Wright will be making his 2016 debut against the Texans. Sharpe's WR4 appeal is on the wane.
Sep 29 - 2:47 PM

Delanie Walker (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It puts Walker on track to return against the Texans, but doesn't guarantee it after he missed Week 3. Walker was sorely missed against the Raiders. Presumably not back to full health, he'll be a back-end TE1 if he suits up against Houston.
Sep 29 - 2:37 PM

Titans SS Da'Norris Searcy is sidelined with a high-ankle sprain.

He'll miss multiple weeks. Losing Searcy is a downgrade to Tennessee's run defense. Daimion Stafford will replace him in the starting lineup.
Sep 28 - 7:11 PM

Tajae Sharpe (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Sharpe played the entire game last week, getting most of his yards on Tennessee's final drive. He should be fine for Sunday's game against Houston, but won't be more than a WR4.
Sep 28 - 5:39 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey expects Delanie Walker (hamstring) to play Sunday.

Walker was held out of Wednesday's practice. He was close to playing against the Raiders, but didn't show enough in pre-game warmups. It sounds like Walker should miss only one game, though the early DNP isn't a good start. Walker's return is a needed upgrade to a Tennessee offense that was held to one touchdown last week.
Sep 28 - 4:44 PM

Kendall Wright (hamstring) is expected to practice fully this week and make his season debut Sunday against the Texans.

Wright has been out since early August with the strained hamstring. He returned to limited practices two weeks ago, but now should have "no limitations." The Titans could really use Wright to help jumpstart their No. 24 passing offense. Rookie Tajae Sharpe has taken a step back on the outside, and veterans Harry Douglas and Andre Johnson are providing nothing. Wright should immediately take back over slot duties from Douglas and is worth watching in PPR leagues.
Sep 28 - 9:55 AM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that rookie Tajae Sharpe took a "step back" in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

Mularkey called Sharpe "inconsistent." Since a solid opener, Sharpe has managed 81 yards on 14 targets the last two games, and has yet to find the end zone this season. He won't be usable this week against Houston's elite defense.
Sep 26 - 4:31 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey expects Delanie Walker (hamstring) to resume practicing on Thursday.

Walker was close to playing on Sunday, before being declared inactive. It sounds like the Titans expect him to be in the starting lineup against the Texans.
Sep 26 - 4:23 PM

Andre Johnson failed to catch any of his three targets in the Titans' Week 3 loss to the Raiders.

Johnson had an 18-yard touchdown pulled off the board on an offensive pass interference penalty on the Titans' final drive of the game. Tennessee was trailing by a touchdown at the time. On the next play, Marcus Mariota missed Harry Douglas on fourth down to end the game. Johnson isn't a fantasy option.
Sep 25 - 5:35 PM

Rishard Matthews caught 3-of-8 targets for 32 yards in the Titans' Week 3 loss to the Titans.

With Delanie Walker (hamstring) out, Matthews led the team in targets, but obviously did very little with them. He was the intended target on one of Marcus Mariota's interceptions and continues to rotate with Andre Johnson and Harry Douglas behind Tajae Sharpe. Matthews is waiver-wire fodder.
Sep 25 - 5:24 PM

Jace Amaro caught 3-of-4 targets for 59 yards in the Titans' Week 3 loss to the Raiders.

With Delanie Walker (hamstring) inactive, Amaro took over as the Titans' pass-catching tight end with Anthony Fasano as the blocker. Amaro's 59 yards led the team. His biggest grab came on a third-and-six on the opening drive to help set up a field goal. Amaro will head back to irrelevance once Walker returns.
Sep 25 - 5:14 PM

Tajae Sharpe caught 3-of-7 targets for 48 yards in the Titans' Week 3 loss to the Raiders.

Sharpe was mostly a non-factor much of the day. Prior to the Titans' final drive, Sharpe had just one catch for six yards on five targets. His two final-drive catches were big to get the Titans in the red zone, but Tennessee predictably failed to convert for the score. With Delanie Walker (hamstring) out of the lineup, Sharpe's line was a big disappointment. Marcus Mariota has been dreadful through three weeks, leaving Sharpe as a low-upside, low-floor WR4 for Week 4 at Houston.
Sep 25 - 5:06 PM

Derrick Henry rushed 10 times for 45 yards in the Titans' Week 3 loss to the Raiders.

Henry continues to take a back seat to DeMarco Murray, but he's still getting plenty of work. The two were the only sources of offense on Sunday. Murray piled up 155 total yards and the team's lone touchdown, while Henry earned tough yards with physical runs. Henry continues to be a must-stash in all formats, but he'll be tough to trust as more than an RB3 next week at Houston.
Sep 25 - 4:40 PM

Marcus Mariota completed just 17-of-33 passes for 214 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Titans' Week 3 loss to the Raiders.

He also lost a fumble on a scramble, totaling three turnovers while accounting for no touchdowns. Mariota's first interception came right before halftime as time expired, and the second was a pass thrown a bit behind Rishard Matthews. The Titans had the ball in the red zone, down by seven with less than a minute left, but Mariota sailed a fourth-and-four pass over Harry Douglas' head. The play before, an 18-yard touchdown to Andre Johnson was called back on offensive pass interference. Mariota will be hard to trust next week at Houston, even in two-quarterback leagues.
Sep 25 - 4:27 PM

DeMarco Murray rushed 16 times for 114 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' 17-10, Week 3 loss to the Raiders, adding five catches for 41 yards.

Murray was the only source of offense for the Titans on Sunday. He had a long run of 36 yards and was consistently breaking off chunk gains as both a runner and receiver. On his touchdown run, Murray was supposed to run between the tackles, but saw nothing there and bounced it outside to get to the right pylon. He produced the Titans' first 100-yard rushing game since Chris Johnson in 2013. Murray has been the Titans' lead back and has caught at least five passes in all three games. He's a locked-in RB1 heading into Week 4 at the Texans.
