Titans TE Delanie Walker (hamstring, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 3. Walker hasn’t practiced his week, which doesn’t bode well. But he finished the game last week, so he may be able to play through the injury. The Titans play early on Sunday, but owners should have a Plan B ready to go.

In his Pro Bowl season of 2015, Delanie Walker averaged more than six receptions per game en route to a career-high total of 94. Things didn’t get off to nearly as good a start Sunday, however, as Walker was held to three catches for 42 yards. In fact, up until the final Titans’ drive of the day, Walker had just one reception for 6 yards.
Titans coach Mike Mularkey said the Vikings did a good job defending Walker but acknowledged the team should have found a way to get Walker more involved early. Potential good news for the Titans is that Indianapolis tight ends Jack Doyle and Dwayne Allen combined for seven catches, 88 yards and three touchdowns against Detroit.
The idea had already crossed Walker's mind.
“I am pretty sure,’’ Walker said. “When you have a threat like that, and you have a tight end threat, if I am on the field at all times blocking and running routes, I think that gives us a mismatch on the field. Defenses won’t know what is going on, and that just gives you another opportunity to put points on the board.”
The Titans were 13th in pass % (percentage of pass attempts of total called plays), and that number is likely to fall with the addition of DeMarco Murray. Tennessee was 27th in total plays, so there is plenty of room for improvement. The team will have to run more plays if Walker hopes to see the same workload.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hamstring, probable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is probable for Week 16. This is a midweek downgrade, but the probable tag means that he’s very likely to play on Sunday.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (ribs, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 14. With Wright out, Dorial Green-Beckham and Harry Douglas should see more playing time, but with Darrelle Revis back in the fold (and likely shadowing DGB), the big winner might be Delanie Walker.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (knee, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 12. Wright's return is good news for QB Marcus Mariota, but he may put a dent in Delanie Walker's targets.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Walker was relatively close to playing in Week 2, so he should be able to face the Colts on Sunday. The upgrade to “full” is encouraging.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand, questionable) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 2. Walker has a chance to play, but some of the beat writers have their doubts. The Titans play early on Sunday, so that’s good. Walker is not looking like a strong option this week. We’re worried about his ability to catch the ball with a sprained ligament in his wrist.
