Fantasy Impact:

Charlie Whitehurst will get the start in what is shaping up to be one of the worst Thursday Night Football games of all time. Kendall Wright is active after missing a couple of games with a hand injury, and apparently won’t be wearing a splint or a cast on his hand. He’s not a great start, but he’s been pretty solid when active and with Justin Hunter out, he should get plenty of targets. We prefer Nate Washington, who had a strong Week 15. The matchup against Jacksonville (#4 in WR aFPA) is not favorable.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand, questionable) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Wright may be able to make his return this week. He’s a tough player to trust given his hand injury and Tennessee’s quarterback problems.

Kendall Wright hopes to play Thursday

Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

Titans receiver Kendall Wright wants to play on Thursday against the Jaguars.

And on Tuesday, after missing the last two games with a cracked bone in his hand, he went through practice without any issues.

"My feeling is I want to play, and if it feels like I felt today, then I'll be a go,'' Wright said. "But if it hurts or gets worse, I wouldn't go out there. … I want to be able to catch, block and be a complete receiver when I am out there. That's the main thing."

Fantasy Impact:

Wright said his status remains unclear. It all depends on how he feels on Wednesday. The hand remains sore, and it hurts when he catches the football, the story said. The Titan offense is not one to trust in this time of the fantasy playoffs.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 15. Wright is still iffy for a nice matchup with the Jets. He’ll likely be wearing a splint, which may impact his ability to catch the ball. Tennessee plays late on Sunday.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Wright seems to be on track to return this week in a nice matchup with the Jets. He’ll likely be wearing a split, which may impact his ability to catch the ball.

Friday, December 5, 2014, 6:38pm

Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (right shoulder, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 14. Mettenberger is expected to play through the injury, though he’s going to be shorthanded this week without Justin Hunter (spleen) and Kendall Wright (wrist).

Friday, December 5, 2014, 6:38pm

Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand, questionable) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Week 14. Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean said he thinks Wright is a “no-go” for Sunday due to a splint on his right wrist. Wright said he “hopes” to go in Week 15, but will see how he feels on Sunday. If he’s out, downgrade Zach Mettenberger and upgrade Delanie Walker, Nate Washington and Derek Hagan. Dexter McCluster might be a sneaky PPR play as well, since he can do some of the same things as Wright.

Titans WR Kendall Wright missed practice with an injured hand

Thursday, December 4, 2014, 6:36pm

Titans Online - [Full Article]

The Tennessee Titans already have lost one starting wide receiver this week because of a lacerated spleen. Now another starter has a sore right hand that kept him out of practice Thursday.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Kendall Wright hurt his hand on a route Wednesday, so they gave him the day off to rest his hand. Wright wore a splint on his hand during the open portion of practice, and Whisenhunt says they should know more about the receiver's hand Friday with an X-ray planned.

Fantasy Impact:

Friday's practice will be key, but for now consider Wright questionable to play in a good matchup against a banged up Giants secondary. Nate Washington is a Sneaky Start regardless of Wright's status.

Thursday, December 4, 2014, 5:59pm

Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice. Midweek downgrades are generally not good, but it’s possible that this is a minor setback. He’s shaping up as a Sneaky Start with Justin Hunter injured and the Giants beat up secondary coming to town.

Titans plan to stick with QB Zach Mettenberger

Thursday, October 23, 2014, 7:30pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Barring an injury to or a faceplant from rookie Zach Mettenberger, Jake Locker has likely started his last game for the Tennessee Titans.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Thursday that Mettenberger will be under center Sunday versus the Houston Texans.

"We're going with Zach," Whisenhunt emphasized, "and we're going to stay with Zach."

Fantasy Impact:

Here's the scouting report on Mettenberger from NFL.com's Nolan Nawrocki: "Pure dropback, strong-armed thrower who will require patient, confidence-building play-calling and a clean pocket to function at a high level in the NFL. Has starter talent in a vertical, downfield passing attack if he can learn to take command of a huddle and continue progressing as a decision-maker." Mettenberger under center could be a good thing for Justin Hunter, who is the Titans' best deep threat. Conversely, Kendall Wright may not see as many short passes if Mettenberger insists on pushing the ball down the field.

Jake Locker will get MRI on thumb

Sunday, October 5, 2014, 7:35pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Jake Locker is once again injured for the Tennessee Titans. The team's starting quarterback left the second quarter of Sunday's 29-28 loss against the Cleveland Browns with a right thumb injury and remained out.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said after the game that's he's not sure how serious the injury is. Locker added he will have an MRI on Monday.

Locker was hurt on a play that saw Browns cornerback Buster Skrine hit the quarterback high as he was attempting a third-down pass attempt in Cleveland territory.

Fantasy Impact:

Backup Charlie Whitehurst entered to throw an 11-yard touchdown strike to Kendall Wright. Whitehurst finished the game 13 of 21 for 194 yards and two touchdowns. He would get the start if Locker is again unable to play in Week 6 - a matchup against the Jaguars.

The Tennessee Titans have claimed wide receivers Kris Durham off waivers.

Durham caught 38 passes for 490 yards and two touchdowns with the Detroit Lions last season.

Fantasy Impact:

The Titans also claimed T.J. Graham earlier today and it's another interesting claim for a team pretty deep at WR. Durham will at best be the team's WR4 behind Kendall Wright, Nate Washington and Justin Hunter.

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

One of the more notable wide receivers released on Saturday has quickly found a new home.

The Titans have been awarded ex-Bills wideout T.J. Graham on waivers, Adam Caplan of ESPN reported Sunday.

A 2012 third-round pick out of N.C. State, the 25-year-old Graham was a 17-game starter for Buffalo in his two seasons with the club, hauling in 23 passes for 361 yards and two touchdowns in 2013. He will provide depth behind Nate Washington and Kendall Wright and could contribute immediately in three- and four-WR sets.

The move leaves the Titans with six receivers, with Justin Hunter, Derek Hagan and Michael Preston the other options at the position.
