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

With the injury, the Titans were down to Taylor Thompson as their only healthy tight end. Craig Stevens was inactive because of a concussion suffered last week.

The Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

Titans rookie tight end Taylor Thompson saw more action Sunday than he had in any previous game this season, despite the fact he wasn’t the target of a single pass.

That might sound odd, considering all the Rob Gronkowski comparisons that were tossed around when the Titans made Thompson their fifth-round pick in April.

But it also speaks volumes about how Thompson, a defensive end in college, has progressed as a run blocker in his first season.

In the Titans’ ground-heavy 37-3 win over the Dolphins, Thompson got more snaps (24) than Jared Cook (23) and was part of an offense that ran 37 times for 177 yards over a defense ranked third against the run.

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

The Titans made a defensive end-turned-tight end their fifth-round pick, selecting SMU’s Taylor Thompson with the 145th overall selection on Saturday.

It was only prior to SMU’s bowl game last season that Thompson began dabbling at tight end — the position he played in high school. He continued working there during the all-star game in Arkansas.

“He was practicing full time at tight end — routes, catching the ball, blocking, the whole deal,” Titans scout John Salge said. “That’s when we said, ‘Wow, this guy has some ability.’ And obviously, during his pro day, he worked out as a tight end as well. We’re just excited to have him. He’s a good athlete.”

“I’d say his growth will have to come in the technique of blocking, but as far as being a receiving tight end, I think he’s uncanny,” offensive coordinator Chris Palmer said. “He’s got outstanding speed. He’s got outstanding size and hands.”

Fantasy Impact:

TE is a position where stars can come from strange places. Antonio Gates and Jimmy Graham were basketball players before turning to football relatively late in their respective careers. Jared Cook should be the TE1 in Tennessee this season, but Thompson is someone to watch.
