Justin Hunter Injury Updates

The Bills have placed WR Sammy Watkins on IR with the foot injury that has rendered him all but useless to this point. We don't yet know if this will end his season, as Buffalo doesn't need to decide yet whether to designate him to return. But Watkins can be dropped in most redraft leagues that don't have an IR spot. The Bills added WR Justin Hunter on Friday, but Robert Woods is the 1st option off waivers. Even he brings a fairly low fantasy ceiling, though. This is a situation to try to avoid. Watkins' status pushes Tyrod Taylor to the bottom of QB2 territory as well.

Titans WR Justin Hunter fractured his right ankle in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.  That'll very likely end his 2015 season.  Hunter caught 22 balls in 9 games and has 1 year left on his rookie deal.  Tennessee is left with Harry Douglas and Dorial Green-Beckham atop the depth chart.  We'll see if WR Kendall Wright can return from his knee injury for Thursday night's game against the Jaguars.

Titans interim HC Mike Mularkey on Thursday ruled WR Kendall Wright (knee) out for this weekend's game against the Saints.  Getting scratched so early in the week doesn't bode well for Wright's Week 10 availability.  Harry Douglas, back from his rib injury, Justin Hunter and Dorial Green-Beckham will serve as Tennessee's top 3 WRs this Sunday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Titans WR Kendall Wright sprained his MCL in Sunday's loss to the Texans.  "His doesn't sound nearly as bad Le'Veon Bell's," Schefter adds.  This could still be a multi-week injury, though.  We should learn more later today.  Wright's absence would leave Justin Hunter and Dorial Green-Beckham as Tennessee's top 2 WRs.  Harry Douglas (ribs) has yet to return to practice.

Titans WR Justin Hunter suffered a lacerated spleen in Sunday's loss to the Texans.  He's currently being treated in a Houston hospital and will remain there overnight.  The injury might end Hunter's season.  He's been a major disappointment this year, totaling just 28 catches in 12 games.  Hunter's absence will mean a few extra targets for WR Kendall Wright and TE Delanie Walker.

Titans WR Justin Hunter left Sunday's game against Houston with a shoulder injury and is questionable to return.  He should be in for a bigger, more consistent role in his 2nd season and will carry some intriguing fantasy upside into 2014.

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 WR Justin Hunter participated in individual drills on the final day of minicamp on Wednesday.  He'd been sidelined all spring with a hamstring injury. Barring a setback over the next 5 weeks, Hunter should be a full-go for the start of training camp.  But after missing valuable reps over the past couple months, he'll be hard-pressed to make an early-season impact.  Hunter is more of a dynasty stash than a 2013 redraft option.

Titans WR Justin Hunter has been sidelined for all the team's offseason practices with a hamstring injury.  It doesn't sound like a serious issue, but the missed reps are bad news for a rookie looking to make an immediate impact.  It's also worth noting that Hunter enters the league with injury concerns after tearing his ACL back in 2011.  It's unclear if this hamstring problem is related.  Hunter brings a top-notch blend of size, speed and athleticism.  There's plenty of long-term upside here.  But fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on much of an impact this season.  Kenny Britt and Kendall Wright look like Tennessee's clear-cut top dogs in the passing game.
