Titans DE/OLB Jadeveon Clowney left Sunday's loss to the Steelers with a left knee injury. The situation shouldn't impact IDP owners much. Clowney has yet to register a sack with Tennessee and hasn't even notched a QB hit over his past 3 games. We'll see about the severity of the injury.

Titans TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report after practicing all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. Smith has a tough matchup on Sunday vs. the Steelers’ 7th-ranked TE defense. But he still sits 6th in our Week 7 TE rankings.

Titans TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) progressed to a full practice on Thursday. He's on track to play against the Steelers this weekend. Despite the ankle injury and that tough matchup, Smith remains safely inside the top 10 TEs for Week 7.

Titans TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It's relatively good news after he was knocked out of last week's win over the Texans. Smith seemingly has a shot to play against the Steelers this weekend. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

The Titans have activated WR Corey Davis off the COVID list. That makes him available for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh. Davis has seen 8, 5 and 6 targets in his 3 games so far this season. He'll be in contention for at least WR4-level usage in fantasy lineups for Week 7.

Titans TE Jonnu Smith has a "minor" ankle sprain and is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's relatively good news. Smith owners should line up a replacement for Week 7, but it doesn't sound like he'll be out beyond that.

Titans TE Jonnu Smith was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Texans with a 3rd-quarter ankle injury. TE Anthony Firkser had a big game in his place. We'll pass along an update on Smith when we get one.

Titans WR Adam Humphries was activated from the COVID list this week. WR Corey Davis has not been and isn’t expected to play vs. the Texans on Sunday. WR A.J. Brown and TE Jonnu Smith should continue to dominate targets for Tennessee.

The Titans have placed RB Darrynton Evans on IR with a hamstring injury. That leaves Jeremy McNichols as Tennessee's #2 RB. He'd need a Derrick Henry injury to have fantasy value.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) is active for tonight’s game against the Bills. He put in a full practice on Saturday, so we’re expecting him to play something close to his usual role tonight. And Brown’s matchup gets a big boost with Bills CB Tre’Davious White out.

The Titans have shut down their facility again after a coach tested positive for COVID on Sunday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The team had gone a couple days without a positive and seemed on track to play the Bills on Tuesday night. But that's now in serious doubt. We'll continue tracking the situation, but Bills and Titans players should probably be on fantasy benches for now.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Bills. He was listed as a full participant on Saturday, so it looks like he'll be back for this one. Pencil Brown into fantasy lineups for now -- and we'll let you know if something changes with his status. Bills top CB Tre'Davious White is questionable with a back injury. His absence would be a big boost to Brown's matchup.

The Titans listed WR A.J. Brown (knee) as a limited participant for the 2nd straight day on Friday. It's only an estimation because the Titans haven't actually been able to practice due to their COVID outbreak. It does seem like Brown is on track to play against the Bills if that game happens on Tuesday. We'll get another update on the wideout tomorrow.

The Titans and Patriots' latest COVID tests came back with no positives on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. So Tennessee's game vs. the Bills on Tuesday and New England's vs. the Broncos on Monday are still on track to be played. That could still change with positive tests over the next couple of days. Stay tuned.

The Titans this week placed DT Jeffery Simmons on COVID reserve. He'll almost certainly miss at least 1 game. We'll see beyond that. At this point, it's getting hard to believe the Tennessee-Buffalo game will happen this Sunday. The Titans have not been allowed back to team headquarters since the rash of positive COVID tests following Week 3, and they're now reportedly in trouble for gathering to practice anyway away from team facilities.

The Titans have placed WR Corey Davis on the COVID reserve list. That wipes the WR out for at least this weekend's game against the Bills. Frankly, the way this week has gone for Tennessee casts the whole game in doubt. We'll keep an eye on Davis' return.

The Titans had 2 more players test positive for COVID on Wednesday morning, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. The team was expected to return to its facility today, but that can't happen now. Sunday's Titans-Bills game is now in serious jeopardy. Fantasy owners need to be prepared to be without players from those teams in Week 5.

Titans WRs Adam Humphries and Cameron Batson have been added to the COVID list. We'll see when they're cleared, but hopefully they weren't part of your fantasy plans.

The NFL announced on Thursday morning that the Steelers-Titans game will not be played this week after a 5th Titans player tested positive for COVID. We're still waiting to hear when the game will be played, but Week 4 now acts as a bye week for Steelers and Titans players. Get them out of your starting lineups.

The NFL is postponing this week's Steelers-Titans game after multiple Tennessee players tested positive for COVID earlier this week, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, meanwhile, hears that the game will be rescheduled for either Monday or Tuesday. That'd keep all Pittsburgh and Tennessee players available to use in Week 4 fantasy lineups. We're keeping those guys in the Week 4 Rankings for now -- but it'd still be wise to line up alternatives in case the situation changes.
