Kendall Wright knee just sprained
Saturday, August 17, 2013, 9:08pm
A team would always prefer to find out that the injury is a sprain as opposed to a torn ligament.
The Titans believe that is how things have played out for WR Kendall Wright, who left Saturday night’s game against the Bengals in the second quarter. Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that “early indications” are that Wright, who did not report hearing the telltale pop when he got hurt, avoided a torn ACL after having x-rays and an MRI taken of his right knee.
Wright said it was very stiff and was obviously concerned about it, but it looks like he may have dodged the torn ligament bullet. He'll likely sit out the remaining preseason games. If he misses regular season time, Nate Washington gets a bump up.

The good news for the Titans is that WR Justin Hunter doesn’t have to be an impact player as a rookie, although they would like him to be one. His inconsistent hands and passive approach frustrate coaches. He’s dropped too many passes, made too many mistakes. The talent is there — another reason coaches have been riding the second-rounder from Tennessee so hard — but it’s looking like a lot of patience will be required.

Locker had a bit of a rough start in the practice, completing only three of his first seven pass attempts in 11-on-11 drills. But by the end of the night, he was an unofficial 10-for-17 in the 11-on-11.
Overall he looked better than he had in previous sessions.

If any of the Titans top-three WRs (Kendall Wright, Kenny Britt, Nate Washington) get injured, Justin Hunter and/or Damian Williams could find themselves thrust into a critical role for the first time.
The article considers all five locks to make the team. And, the story points out that no Titan WR had more than 4 TDs last season, meaning the key to success for any of these guys will be the play of QB Jake Locker.
Titans WRs drawing praise

“The receiving group has been fun to watch, the way they’re working in the run game and the pass game,” Titans head coach MIke Munchak said. “We’ve drafted guys at that position the last few years and there’s great competition and camaraderie there.
“You’ve got some guys who could make plays. So we’re excited. It’s fun to watch them. They compete against each other and they push each other. I just think it’s going to be a fun group to watch.”
Kenny Britt is finally healthy and Kendall Wright has dropped 15 pounds, according to the team. Nate Washington has "had the best camp he’s had since he’s been here." The wildcard, of course, is QB Jake Locker. As a result, any of the Titan WRs can likely be had from the 9th round on. If Locker can show some consistency, Britt and Wright can be productive, late round fantasy players for you.

Nate Washington is still on the roster, so it's no guarantee that Hunter will start at the Z. That's just where he's going to play.
