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.
