Titans WR Kendall Wright is not listed on this week’s injury report.  He was dealing with ankle and shoulder injuries last week but appears healthier for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals.  Wright’s slot role should keep him away from CB Patrick Peterson in that one.  Wright is worth keeping in fantasy lineups despite last week’s dud.

Titans HC Mike Munchak revealed Monday that WR Kendall Wright is dealing with shoulder and ankle injuries.  It explains why he played just 78% of the offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.  Wright had been above 90% in each of his last 3 outings.  He finished Sunday's game with just 2 catches on 3 targets.  We'll keep an eye on his practice participation this week.  

Titans WR Kendall Wright suffered a right foot injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game.  He got the foot rolled up underneath him while blocking on a Shonn Greene run.  Wright is being examined by a trainer on the sideline.  We'll update his status when we learn more.

Update: Wright had the foot taped and returned after missing just a few plays.

Titans WR Kenny Britt (ribs) is inactive for today's game against the Jets.  Rookie Justin Hunter should see more action, but look for WRs Kendall Wright and Nate Washington to dominate targets.

Titans WR Kenny Britt (neck, ribs) was limited in practice this week.  HC Mike Munchak admitted on Friday that Britt “still isn’t where he needs to be.”  He’s questionable for Sunday’s game against the Jets but shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups regardless.  Britt has just 5 catches for 43 scoreless yards through 3 games.  His absence would mean more targets for WRs Kendall Wright and Nate Washington – and an increased role for rookie WR Justin Hunter.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Chargers.  He was medically cleared and practiced on Friday.  Wright is only a WR3 option in PPR fantasy leagues.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (concussion) returned to a full practice on Friday and is listed as probable for this weekend's game against the Chargers.  It looks like he's been medically cleared.  Wright is back on the radar as a WR3 option in PPR fantasy leagues.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (concussion) missed his 2nd straight progress on Thursday.  Both Wright and HC Mike Munchak still expect him to play against the Chargers, but he has just a few more days to receive medical clearance.  We'll have another update on Wright's status tomorrow.

Titans WR Kendall Wright is experiencing concussion-like symptoms, per beat writer Jim Wyatt.  Wright said Wednesday afternoon that he feels fine and that he doesn’t believe he has a concussion.  But it sounds like a player who’s a bit overoptimistic.  Wright looked like a potential WR3 after last week’s 7-54-1 line against Houston.  Consider him questionable to play against San Diego.  We’ll continue to update his status leading up to Sunday.

Titans HC Mike Munchak deemed WR Kendall Wright a "go" for Week 1.  Wright sprained his knee in a preseason game on August 17th but returned to practice on Monday.  It's unclear what his role will be to open the season, so Wright won't be a recommended fantasy starter.  But he's worth stashing as a potential WR3 down the road.

Titans HC Mike Munchak indicated during a Sunday press conference that WR Kendall Wright might be able to play Week 1.  The 2nd-year wideout suffered a knee sprain in the 2nd preseason game.  The coach also said that he hopes to have LB Akeem Ayers available for the opener as well.  Ayers injured an ankle in the game that is expected to take at least a week to heal.

An MRI on Titans WR Kendall Wright's injured knee revealed only a sprain. That's relatively good news.  Wright is expected to miss the rest of the preseason but has a chance to be on the field for Week 1.  The 2nd-year wideout won't be a recommended fantasy starter early this season, but he could eventually emerge as a solid WR3 -- especially in PPR leagues.  If Wright isn't ready for Week 1, Nate Washington will serve as Tennessee's #2 WR behind Kenny Britt.

"Early indications" point to Titans WR Kendall Wright having suffered just a sprained ligament in his right knee Saturday night, according to The Tennessean.  That injury would still likely keep him out for the rest of the preseason and make Wright questionable for the regular-season opener.  But it would beat the heck out of an ACL tear.  Wright reportedly didn't hear the "pop" that often accompanies a torn ACL.  We'll certainly keep an eye on his status going forward.

Titans WR Kendall Wright injured his right knee Saturday night's preseason contest.  “My foot got stuck in the turf, and when I got tackled, I got bent up and hurt my knee,” Wright explained afterward.  He was able to limp off the field but was carted to the locker room.  MRI results are expected on Sunday.  If Wright is sidelined, Nate Washington would step in as Tennessee's #2 WR.  Rookie WR Justin Hunter isn't ready for a significant role.

The Tennessean reports that Titans rookie WR Justin Hunter is frustrating coaches by dropping too many passes, making mental mistakes on the field and playing passively.  Beat writer Jim Wyatt expects the team will need to be patient while developing the talented 2nd-rounder.  Hunter's issues only help to solidify Kenny Britt and Kendall Wright as the team's top 2 WRs.  Both look attractive in late-WR3 and early-WR4 territory of your fantasy football draft.

Titans WR Justin Hunter is back to full health for the start of training camp.  He's behind the 8-ball after missing most of spring workouts with a hamstring injury.  The rookie will push for the #3 WR spot behind Kenny Britt and Kendall Wright.  Hunter is high on talent but low on opportunity as a secondary option on a shaky passing attack.  He's just a late-round flier in redraft fantasy leagues.

Titans insider Jim Wyatt says WR Kendall Wright looks more "shifty" this year than he did last.  That's exactly what we want to hear about a WR who's dropped 12-15 pounds.  Wright shouldn't have trouble improving upon last season's 9.8 yards-per-catch average.  And he could lead the Titans in targets and catches.  Wright has WR3 potential, especially in PPR leagues.

Titans WR Kendall Wright tied for the rookie lead last year with 64 catches.  But he averaged just 9.8 yards per.  He's dropped about 15 pounds this offseason to get quicker and improve that number.  “Once I catch it, I know I can do a lot of things after the catch,” Wright said. “That is my personal emphasis — I just want to catch the ball first and then go, instead of trying to make the move and then catch it."  Wright averaged 5.2 yards after the catch last year, which ranked a respectable 29th among WRs.  If he really wants to improve his YPC, he needs to convince the coaching staff to cut him loose downfield more often.  Wright saw just 9 targets 20+ yards downfield last year.

The Titans traded up from 40th overall to 34th to nab Tennessee WR Justin Hunter.  Some draftniks view the lanky speedster as a better player than college teammate WR Cordarrelle Patterson.  With the Titans, Hunter can serve as insurance against WR Kenny Britt leaving in free agency after the 2013 season.  (Or perhaps the answer that Britt has yet to become.)  The presence of Britt and WR Kendall Wright will make it tough for Hunter to find consistent targets as a rookie.  He's a nice dynasty candidate but not part of the redraft picture.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (ribs) is active for today's game against the Jaguars.  The rookie is a weak WR3 option in Tennessee's inconsistent passing attack.
