Titans NT Sammie Lee Hill re-injured his knee ahead of last Friday's third preseason game and may need surgery.

Hill opened camp on the active/PUP list after spraining his knee at OTAs. Warming up for Tennessee's third preseason game, he re-injured himself, but believes the two issues are unrelated. Hill thinks his latest injury is to his meniscus.

Titans WR Justin Hunter is expected to play in Thursday's preseason finale.

It's confirmation that he's nowhere near the first-team offense. Hunter's roster spot doesn't appear to be in danger, but he's not going to be a factor in the Titans' offense any time soon.

Titans RB David Cobb (calf) is in a walking boot, and remains week to week.

Cobb is looking might shaky for Week 1. At this point, he's just an RB4/5 stash in re-draft leagues.
Sep 1 - 2:15 PM

Titans CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson has returned from his high ankle sprain.

He resumed practicing Monday after missing the previous two-plus weeks of training camp. With top Titans CB Jason McCourty (groin surgery) unlikely to play before Week 3, Wreh-Wilson projects as a potential starter opposite Perrish Cox to begin the year. DFS players should be praying Wreh-Wilson gets the nod with the ones. Wreh-Wilson is one of the NFL's easiest-to-burn corners.

Titansonline's Jim Wyatt said he "can't see a scenario" where G Andy Levitre makes the team without being a starter.

Considering Levitre has all but lost his left guard job to Byron Bell, this means his days in Tennessee are likely done. The Titans can save $2.3 million by releasing Levitre, but they will have to eat $6.3 million in dead money.

The Titans' official website said WR Kendall Wright is rookie QB Marcus Mariota's favorite target.

Wright's chemistry with Mariota has shown this preseason. He has hauled in six passes for 84 yards in limited snaps. After a down season in 2013, Wright is a good bet to lead the Titans in targets this year. He is an underrated WR3 even in standard leagues.
Aug 31 - 11:53 AM

Titans WR Justin Hunter has caught 2-of-9 targets (22 percent) this preseason.

It is a very small sample size, but it is a concern considering Hunter has caught a Stephen-Hill like 43 percent of his targets through two seasons. Hunter has reportedly shown well in training camp this season, but that improvement has yet to be seen in games. Hunter will struggle to find the field if he cannot become more consistent.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team is open to signing another running back.

"I'm sure we’ll look and see what else is out there," said Whisenhunt. "If there’s somebody that can help us—if we need that." None of the Titans' running backs have stood out this preseason and the team is likely to employ a committee in the early going. Sankey is the favorite for early-down work with Dexter McCluster mixing in on passing downs. David Cobb will have a role when he returns from his calf injury with Antonio Andrews and David Fluellen serving as backfield depth.

The Titans first-team defense gave up 17 points to the Kansas City offense over their first three possessions on Saturday.

The Titans allowed Alex Smith to connect with his two favorite targets as both Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce hauled in touchdown catches early in the game. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said, "We knew it would be tough coming in here and I think we just made too many mistakes early." The Titans D/ST can be avoided in fantasy drafts and despite facing a rookie quarterback in Jameis Winston, will not be recommended for use in Week 1 as the Titans travel to Tampa Bay.
Aug 30 - 2:18 AM

Titans rookie RB David Cobb (calf) is week to week.

Cobb should miss the rest of the preseason. He isn’t a lock to be ready for Week 1. Cobb is merely a late-round flier.
Aug 29 - 3:36 PM

Dorial Green-Beckham didn’t play any snaps in the Titans third preseason game.

Green-Beckham was active after missing time with an ankle injury, but didn’t see the field. Coach Ken Whisenhunt views Green-Beckham as a work in progress, limiting his chances of making an early-season impact. The Titans slowplayed Bishop Sankey for 29-year-old Shonn Greene last year, and appear to be doing the same with DGB. Harry Douglas and a broken-down Hakeem Nicks are expected to open the year opposite Kendall Wright.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt has not decided if QB Marcus Mariota will play in the fourth preseason game.

Starters rarely play a significant role in the fourth preseason game, but the Titans may decide to get their rookie signal caller a couple more reps before the regular season. After a rocky start, Mariota has played well the last two weeks.
Aug 29 - 11:26 AM

Antonio Andrews had a two-yard touchdown in Tennessee's third preseason game.

With David Cobb sitting out, the Titans used Andrews as a short-yardage complement to Bishop Sankey. He mixed in with the first team, vulturing a goal-line touchdown. Andrews has 10 carries for 39 yards and two touchdowns through three preseason games.
Aug 28 - 11:24 PM

Justin Hunter was held without a catch in Tennessee's third preseason game.

Hunter played exclusively with the second team, with Hakeem Nicks starting opposite Kendall Wright. All four of his targets came on deep routes. Hunter has just two catches for 14 yards through three preseason games. Hunter isn't a recommended late-round flyer.
Aug 28 - 11:05 PM

Delanie Walker was held without a catch in the Titans' third preseason game.

It was Walker's first preseason appearance after missing two games with a thumb injury. Walker is on the back-end TE1 radar in a weak year for tight ends. He projects to open the season behind only Kendall Wright for targets.
