Titans WR Kendall Wright (ribs) is listed as questionable for Week 17.  He practiced all week, though, and is expected to play against the Jaguars.  With just 1 outing over 48 yards since Week 6, Wright is just a desperation fantasy option.

Titans WR Kendall Wright leads all rookies with 62 receptions.  But they've gone for just 586 yards -- a disappointing 9.5-yard average.  WRs coach Dave Ragone says that's simply a product of Wright being used mostly on quick screens and slants.  But Ragone and the rest of the coaching staff knows Wright has the ability to beat defenders downfield.  “When Kendall did have the chance to get vertical on people, he was able to get by them,” Ragone said. “So I think as a coach and a coaching staff, you go back and you look at those things. The great thing is that we know he has that ability. He’s just scratching the surface."  Wright is quicker than he is fast, but still ran a 4.43 40-yard dash at his Pro Day.  He averaged 15.4 yards per catch at Baylor last year.  Wright should emerge as Tennessee's clear-cut #2 WR in 2013.  And with improved QB play, he'll possess breakout potential.  Said Ragone: "I think he comes in here next year as a much more confident guy, knowing he can beat NFL defenders.”

As expected, Titans WR Kendall Wright (ribs) is inactive for today's game against the Packers.  It should mean a few extra targets for Nate Washington, who qualifies as a WR3 flier.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (ribs) is listed as questionable but is unlikely to play against the Packers this Sunday. He cracked at least 1 rib last Monday night and didn't practice at all this week. Look for Kenny Britt and Nate Washington to serve as Tennessee's top 2 WRs against Green Bay.

Titans WR Kendall Wright revealed that he cracked "at least" 1 rib in Monday night's game against the Jets.  “I knew it when I tried to go back out there and run. I knew that I shouldn’t do anything to hurt the team, so I had to come out,” Wright said. “And at that point, they wanted to get an X-ray and it didn’t look too good.”  He's almost certainly done for the year.  The rookie has racked up 62 catches in 14 games, although they've resulted in just 586 yards and 4 TDs.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (elbow) is active for today's game against the Dolphins.  He practiced in full all week.  Despite the plus matchup, though, Tennessee's #3 WR is just a flier in fantasy.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (elbow) practiced all week and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The elbow isn't an issue. But Wright has fallen to 3rd on Tennessee's depth chart and is just a flier in fantasy.

The elbow injury Titans WR Kendall Wright suffered on Sunday doesn't sound serious.  X-rays came back negative, and Wright told reporters afterwards that he "doesn't plan on missing a game."  We should learn more on Monday.  Wright hasn't topped 47 yards over the past 3 games, though, as he's fallen behind Kenny Britt and Nate Washington in the pecking order.

Titans WR Kendall Wright suffered an elbow injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears.  His return is considered questionable.

Titans WR Kenny Britt admits that he's unlikely to play against the Vikings this weekend.  He aggravated his ankle injury on Thursday.  “The tweak set me back,” Britt said. “But I still have a chance… I’d like to be able to give the team 100 percent on Sunday, but if I can’t, I can’t. It’s not looking so good right now as we stand, but we have two days."  Look for WRs Nate Washington and Kendall Wright to start against Minnesota on Sunday.  Britt could be ready for the team's Week 6 game against the Steelers on Thursday night.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Titans WR Kenny Britt (ankle) will not play against the Texans today.  That twisted ankle turned out to be worse than initially thought.  Nate Washington and Kendall Wright will start outside for Tennessee today, but both guys are low-end WR3s in a tough matchup.

Titans WR Nate Washington (leg) is active for today's game against the Chargers.  He didn't practice all week and is expected to be on a snap count.  Washington isn't a recommended fantasy play.   WR Kendall Wright is also a shakier option now.

Titans WR Nate Washington (leg) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.  The leg injury was originally deemed minor, but it looks a little more serious than that considering Washington didn't practice at all this week.  Even if he's active on Sunday, he won't be a fantasy option.  WR Kendall Wright would get a boost if Washington sits out.

Titans HC Mike Munchak confirmed that rookie WR Kendall Wright will start in place of the suspended Kenny Britt against the Patriots on Sunday.  Wright seemed to have nice chemistry with QB Jake Locker this preseason.  And he also looked plenty explosive, finishing with 116 yards and a score on 9 catches.  We like him as an upside WR3 this week.  Even beyond that, he should continue to see plenty of action.  Tennessee will likely limit Britt's reps early on.  And they're expected to run plenty of 3-WR sets anyways.  Wright has top-30 upside in 2012.

Despite a contract holdup that caused him to miss a few days of training camp, Titans WR Kendall Wright is being counted on to make an immediate impact.  That's out of both necessity -- because of Kenny Britt's situation -- and Wright's talent level.  "I think he's a very, very quick individual," OC Chris Palmer said.  "He's gonna be a star in this league."  Palmer confirmed that Wright will be moved all over the field and is confident that he'll learn the offense in time for Week 1.  "I think he'll be ready to go," Palmer said.  "He's a bright young man."  Palmer noted that rookies like Andre Johnson (976 yards) and Terry Glenn (90 catches) had success as rookies in his system.  Wright seems to have the talent and situation to make a legitimate fantasy impact in 2012.  We love him as a high-upside bench stash.

Titans WR Kenny Britt underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee shortly after the team's June minicamp. That's his "other" knee -- not the one he's had operated on twice since tearing his ACL and MCL last September. This latest procedure is being described as a "clean-out" after Britt experienced some discomfort and swelling. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined. He's currently rehabbing at the Titans' facility. At this point, we wouldn't expect to see Britt at training camp or in the preseason. His status for Week 1 is iffy. He's now undergone 3 knee surgeries over the past 10 months. No bueno. A healthy Britt carries top-10 fantasy upside. But a healthy Britt doesn't seem like a good possibility this season. We just slid him down our rankings. Rookie WR Kendall Wright, who had a brilliant spring, looks like the favorite to move into Tennessee's starting lineup if Britt misses time. He just moved up our rankings. WR Nate Washington also got a slight bump.

Titans WR Kendall Wright landed hard on his shoulder during Thursday's practice.  He missed the rest of the workout, but an MRI revealed no structural damage.  "I'm glad it's nothing serious," Wright said. "I'm good. If they want to hold me back [from next week's minicamp] to be safe, that's fine."  It sounds like Wright will be a full-go for training camp, making this a non-issue.  By all accounts, the rookie has had an outstanding offseason and will likely open the year as Tennessee's #3 WR.

The Titans nabbed Baylor WR Kendall Wright with the 20th overall pick.  WR wasn't Tennessee's biggest need, but we love the fit here.  Wright is a vertical play-maker with good quicks and sticky hands.  He racked up 108 catches 1,663 yards and 14 TDs this past season.  Wright will likely slot in as the Titans' #3 WR behind Kenny Britt and Nate Washington this year, though, and will struggle for consistent fantasy value.  But he should play well with QB Jake Locker's big arm.  The Titans are cobbling together an impressive group of skill-position players.  Locker's stock is on the rise.
