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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sep 14 - 4:28 PM

Titans LCB Jason McCourty was forced from Tennessee's Week 2 game against the Cowboys with a groin injury.

McCourty is technically "questionable" to return, but has spent the entire second half on the sideline without his helmet. He's not returning. Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Coty Sensabaugh are now the Titans' top two corners. Tennessee has been getting roasted by Dez Bryant since McCourty's departure.
Sep 14 - 3:05 PM

Titans declared WR Kris Durham, WR T.J. Graham, QB Zach Mettenberger, CB Brandon Harris, LB Zach Brown, OT Byron Stingily and DL DaQuan Jones inactive for Week 2 against the Cowboys.

Durham was claimed off waivers from the Lions at final cuts, but should be a weekly inactive for one of the league's deeper receiver corps. The same is true of Graham. Brown is expected to miss the entire season with a torn pectoral.
Sep 14 - 11:37 AM

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky expects rookie RB Bishop Sankey's offensive role to "gradually grow."

Sankey was clearly behind Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster Week 1, and only had two more touches than career return-man Leon Washington. He is buried on the depth chart, and may need an injury to either Greene or McCluster to earn significant playing time. Sankey is worth a stash, but he should not be in starting lineups Week 2.

Justin Hunter (knee) practiced fully again on Friday and is listed as probable for Week 2 against the Cowboys.

He should be all systems go facing arguably the NFL's worst defense on Sunday. Hunter is a prime blowup candidate, as alluded to in Evan Silva's Week 2 Matchups column. You can read the article at the link below.
