Titans TE Jonnu Smith will miss the rest of the season with an MCL injury suffered in Thursday night's loss to the Jaguars, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Smith suffered an MCL injury in last year's playoff loss to the Patriots, although it's unclear if this is the same knee. Anthony Firkser will serve as Tennessee's lead pass-catching TE the rest of the way.

Titans TE Jonnu Smith injured his knee on RB Derrick Henry's 2nd-quarter, 99-yard TD run on Thursday night and did not return. He finished with a goose egg. Anthony Firkser stepped in as Tennessee's lead pass-catching TE, hauling in all 3 of his targets for 27 yards. We'll look for an update on Smith's status.

Titans WR Taywan Taylor (foot) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play against the Jets on Sunday after missing the last 3 weeks. Taylor has topped 32 yards just once all season and isn’t a realistic fantasy option.

Titans WR Taywan Taylor (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts. He didn’t practice all week, though, so don’t expect him to play. That’ll again leave Tajae Sharpe and Cameron Batson behind Corey Davis on the WR depth chart.

Titans WR Taywan Taylor (foot) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. Tajae Sharpe (ankle) is active and should serve as the #2 WR — but he’s not much of a fantasy option.

Titans WRs Taywan Taylor (foot) and Tajae Sharpe (ankle) are both questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Sharpe seemingly has a better chance to suit up after playing through his injury last week — but neither guy is a recommended fantasy starter.

Titans WR Taywan Taylor (foot) didn't practice on Wednesday. He injured his foot in the 2nd half of Monday night's win over the Cowboys and didn't return. Taylor, of course, has been a fantasy disappointment this season, topping 32 yards in just 1 of 8 games.

Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) isn't listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He put in a full practice on Saturday after being limited on Thursday and Friday. Davis is safe to use as you normally would for Monday night's game against the Cowboys.

Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) has been limited in practice so far this week. We haven’t heard anything to suggest he’s in danger of missing Monday night’s game against the Cowboys, but Davis does have a history of hamstring trouble. We’ll get another update on his status Saturday afternoon.

Titans S Kenny Vaccaro is questionable for Sunday morning's game against the Chargers. Vaccaro missed the past 2 games with an elbow injury and put in just limited practices this week. He's not a strong enough asset to gamble on before proving he's all the way back.

Titans LB Wesley Woodyard did not show up on the team's final injury report this week. That means he's ready to go for Sunday morning's game against the Chargers. Woodyard's fine to pop back into IDP lineups.

Titans LB Wesley Woodyard (shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the Ravens. That clears the way for Jayon Brown to play full time for the 3rd straight week and makes him a strong IDP starter.

Titans LB Wesley Woodyard is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens with the shoulder injury that cost him Week 5 and knocked him out of the previous game early. Woodyard has called himself day to day. We'll see about his status Sunday. His status could also affect the playing time for Jayon Brown. The 2nd-year LB played at least two-thirds of the snaps in every game this season, though, so he's worth a shot in many cases even if Woodyard's active.

The Titans have ruled LB Wesley Woodyard our for Sunday's game at Buffalo with the shoulder injury that knocked him out of last week's game. Jayon Brown played 76 of 78 snaps against the Eagles, tallying 10 tackles and a sack. He's an upside IDP option against the Bills in Week 5.

Titans HC Mike Vrabel told reporters Monday that the team is "hopeful" LB Wesley Woodyard will be able to play against the Bills on Sunday. Woodyard left Week 4 early with a shoulder injury. We'll keep an eye on his status through the practice week.

Titans LB Wesley Woodyard left Sunday's win over the Eagles after just 2 snaps with a shoulder injury and did not return. In his absence, Jayon Brown played all but 1 defensive snap after playing 67% to 71% over the previous 3 weeks. He'll be in play for IDP owners if Woodyard remains out for Week 5's trip to Buffalo. Rookie Rashaan Evans also jumped up to a 77% snap share after playing just 18 total snaps through 3 weeks. We'll see what we hear about Woodyard's shoulder this week.

Titans S Kenny Vaccaro is expected to miss 2-4 weeks after dislocating his right elbow in Sunday's win over the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tennessee signed Vaccaro as a free agent to step in after starter Johnathan Cyprien landed on IR. We'll see if the team looks outside the roster for help over the next few weeks.

Titans K Ryan Succop (knee) is not listed on the final injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s fine to keep in Week 4 fantasy lineups if he’s your best option.

Titans K Ryan Succop didn't practice on Wednesday. HC Mike Vrabel said afterward that Succop is dealing with tendonitis in his left knee. It's unclear if he's in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Eagles, but fantasy owners might want to roll with a healthier option in Week 4 fantasy lineups.

Titans HC Mike Vrabel confirmed on Wednesday that QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) will start this weekend's game against the Eagles. Mariota was serviceable in relief of QB Blaine Gabbert this past Sunday, completing 12 of 18 passes. But he totaled just 100 passing yards and clearly wasn't at 100%. Vrabel did add that Mariota is "getting better every day" and that he doesn't expect to have any playbook limitations this weekend. But util we see that arm back to full strength, Mariota shouldn't be in fantasy lineups.
