Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

Titans tight end Craig Stevens has decided to retire, a source confirmed to The Tennessean on Tuesday, less than three weeks before the start of the regular season.

Stevens, considered one of the NFL’s top blocking tight ends, was excused from the team’s last two practices for personal reasons. His decision took the Titans and his former teammates by surprise. The team has not yet confirmed the retirement.

For a quarterback, 7-on-7 work is supposed to be easier than 11-on-11 drills. There is no pass rush. There is no crowd to see over or around. Receivers should win matchups and provide open targets.

But in the Tennessee Titans' Monday night practice it didn't work that way for Marcus Mariota during red zone work.

In a 7-on-7 drill, he hit Bishop Sankey and then missed on three throws in a row: He missed Hakeem Nicks in the end zone, threw out of bounds to a well-covered Kendall Wright in the back right corner of the end zone and threw a bad pass I think was aimed for Harry Douglas but might have been intended for Delanie Walker behind him.

But in the full team red zone period that followed, Mariota's fuse got re-lit.

A dump off to tight end Craig Stevens created a chance for him to bounce into the end zone. A slant to Douglas for a touchdown. A hard roll out to the right and a dart to Wright at the front corner of the end zone.

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker left Sunday's game against the Colts because of a concussion.

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

Signed to a four-year, $17.5 million contract on March 14, Titans TE Delanie Walker remains on the physically unable to perform list after having arthroscopic left knee surgery last month to repair an injury from offseason workouts.

The Titans hope Walker might be able to start practicing in some capacity as early as next week, but he acknowledged there’s a chance he will miss all four preseason games.

Fantasy Impact:

Craig Stevens figures to back up Walker, though he may be the better athlete. Stevens has 4.59 speed and is a decent receiver. He's not draftable -- Walker isn't either, really -- but this is a situation to monitor.

Jared Cook may be gone, but don’t try to tell Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains his tight end group has slipped.

He believes the opposite is the case, now that Delanie Walker, Craig Stevens and Taylor Thompon are the top three players at the position.

“This is probably the best group since Alge (Crumpler) and Bo Scaife,” said Loggains, who’s been with the Titans for eight years. “I feel really good about having three guys that can do a lot of different things. Also all three of them can be in-line blockers, point-of-attack blockers, and all of them have good speed.”

Crumpler and Scaife played together in 2008 and 2009 for the Titans.

Fantasy Impact:

The article points out that none of those three have ever caught more than 30 passes in a season. Walker is ranked the highest of the three on our TE list at 31. At that spot, he's just a mid-range TE3 in a 12-team league. He'll likely be available very late in drafts.

Titans TE Craig Stevens (concussion, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 17.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm, hip, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15. Albert Breer of the NFL Network believes it's unlikely that Gronkowski plays on Sunday despite the appearance at practice, while Pro Football Talk reports that Gronk will not give it a go. The Patriots play on Sunday night, so it would be very difficult for owners to wait to see if Gronkowski plays. Determined owners could pick up Titans TE Craig Stevens (with Jared Cook out) since he plays on Monday night.
