Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright was sent home from practice with a fever Tuesday and will not travel with the team for its final preseason game Thursday at Miami.

Wright has missed the entire preseason with a left hamstring injury that he re-injured Monday during his first practice back. Afterward, he said he planned to be ready to play in the season opener Sept. 11 against the Vikings.

“It’s not in doubt,” Wright said. “I think I’ll be able to play in it.”

Titans WR Kendall Wright having more hamstring issues

ESPN - [Full Article]

Out since an Aug. 2 hamstring injury suffered in practice, Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright returned to action Monday only to re-tweak the injury.

He's now not likely to take the field Thursday night in Miami in what would have been his lone game action of the preseason.

"It looks like he may have strained it again, a little different area," coach Mike Mularkey said of Wright's left hamstring. "I'd pretty much say with the time frame he probably will not play. We're looking at it."

Wright said he was feeling good and probably overdid it.

"I think I'll be all right, and I think I'll be able to play in the opener [Sept. 11 against the Vikings]," he said. "Same thing, but it really doesn't feel as bad as it did."

Fantasy Impact:

The Titans' offense has played well in his absence as rookie receiver Tajae Sharpe has emerged as a prime target for quarterback Marcus Mariota, the story said. Wright said it won't take him long to get back into action. Harry Douglas has played in the slot with Wright out of practice. Tre McBride has also worked there, the story said.

A look at Titans WRs after trade

Dorial Green-Beckham had been considered one of four locks to make the Titans roster – along with Kendall Wright, Tajae Sharpe and Rishard Matthews.

So which receiver – or receivers – might benefit from Green-Beckham’s departure, keeping in mind the Titans are not likely to keep five on the final roster?

As for the veterans, it clears more room for guys like 31-year-old Harry Douglas and 35-year-old Andre Johnson. It seemed unlikely the Titans would keep both veterans – and that still may be the case – but it’s easier to make a case for that happening now.

Fantasy Impact:

The DGB trade could also breathe new life into Justin Hunter, a 2013 second-round pick who – like DGB – has suffered from inconsistency. Another player who benefits is Tre McBride, the second-year player out of William & Mary who spent last season on the practice squad. He wasn’t receiving much attention at the start of camp, but has come on strong over the last few weeks.

Kendell Wright playing out of the slot

Titans WR Kendall Wright fell out of practice with a tweaked hamstring Tuesday, and we don't know if he'll be back when the team returns to action Thursday. Right now, when healthy, he's the slot receiver coming in to supplement outside guys Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe.

Fantasy Impact:

Since Dowell Loggains' term as the team's offensive coordinator ended after the 2013 season, Wright's game has gone largely in the wrong direction, the story said. Wright is now in a contract year, and he's seen the Titans add Matthews, Sharpe and Andre Johnson.

Kendall Wright injures hamstring

Tuesday, August 2, 2016, 2:34pm

Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright stood on the sideline, arms folded, watching the first team practice without him after suffering a left hamstring injury Tuesday on the fourth day of training camp, the second in pads.

Wright walked into the locker room early in the practice session and returned to the field a short time later, rejoining the wide receivers group, but did not participate in drills for the rest of the day. The Titans return to the practice field Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

Wright, the team’s top wide receiver since being drafted in the first round (20th overall) in 2012, is expected to largely contribute from the slot this season. Veteran receiver Harry Douglas took Wright’s reps with the first team.

Titans hope Dorial Green-Beckham responds to demotion

Titans Online - [Full Article]

The emergence of 5th-round rookie WR Tajae Sharpe begs the question: What does it mean for veterans like Dorial Green-Beckham and Justin Hunter? Those players have been watching as Sharpe has lined up with the starters. Rishard Matthews has been the other outside receiver while Kendall Wright has been busy - and looked good - in the slot.

“I am hoping they are taking it personal, and they are going to come back in here in better shape, and better prepared and healthy and ready to go out of the gate,’’ Mularkey said when asked about Green-Beckman and Hunter. “(We want to see that) from the first practice on.”

Fantasy Impact:

This could just be a motivational ploy, but it's not like Green-Beckham has the sort of resume that buys hm a lot of leash when it comes to being in "better shape" or being "better prepared." DGB could be starting in Week 1, but the odds are less favorable than they were a month or two ago. Sharpe doesn't have a great athletic profile, but he has quickly ascended the Titans' depth chart. Owners looking for value may want to avoid DGB for the time being and target Rishard Matthews and/or Kendall Wright, who seem locked in as starters.
