Wesley Woodyard Injury Updates

Titans ILB Jayon Brown left Sunday's loss to the Broncos in the 1st quarter with a groin injury. Brown left the field under his own power and was initially deemed questionable to return, but he missed the rest of the game. Wesley Woodyard stepped in to tally 6 tackles and a sack. He would start in Brown's place and likely see full playing time if Brown misses further action.

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 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 ILB Avery Williamson is inactive for today's game against the Dolphins because of a hamstring injury. That should leave Wesley Woodyard and Zach Brown starting in his place. Neither makes for a strong IDP starting option, but both bring some upside in deeper fantasy football leagues.

Broncos LB Wesley Woodyard has officially lost his starting job.  Veteran LB Paris Lenon started at his middle spot Sunday against Tennessee and then again Thursday night vs. the Chargers.  Woodyard began the season looking like a top 20 fantasy LB after finishing 14th at the position in a breakout 2012.  But he has failed to impress this year while also losing 2 games to injury.  We're not interested in Lenon as an IDP option over these final few weeks.

Broncos LB Danny Trevathan left Wednesday practice on a cart after suffering a knee injury.  The Denver Post reports that the team is still evaluating the extent of the injury.  Steve Johnson would likely replace Trevathan in the lineup.  The absence of the weak-side starter could mean more tackle chances for MLB Wesley Woodyard, who already looked like an attractive IDP option this week and the rest of the way.

Broncos WLB Wesley Woodyard sat out today's practice because of the ankle sprain he suffered in Sunday's win over the Bucs. Woodyard looks highly unlikely to be ready for Thursday night. That should mean more playing time for both MLB Keith Brooking and WLB fill-in D.J. Williams against the Raiders. According to Jeff Legwold of The Denver Post, Brooking stayed on the field in nickel situations after Woodyard's injury Sunday. Rookie Danny Trevathan was the other LB at times. Williams reportedly saw some of those snaps as well and played as the lone LB in dime packages. All of that indicates the Broncos weren't really sure what they should do with passing-down LBs. There figures to be a clearer plan against Oakland, but it'll be tough for us to know that plan ahead of time. None of the 3 will be a strong play. Williams probably carries a bit more upside than Brooking.
