Walker suffers significant ankle injury | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Titans TE Delanie Walker suffered a serious-looking injury to his right ankle in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game at Miami. His foot looked displaced after the play, and he left the field in a boot and on a cart. We'd bet on this being a season-ender. That would immediately raise the fantasy profile of 2nd-year TE Jonnu Smith, who's coming off his own MCL tear in January's playoff loss at New England.

Recent Shark Bites

The Titans have released TE Delanie Walker. Walker racked up 381 catches across 7 seasons with Tennessee but played in just 8 total games over the past 2 seasons because of injuries. He has said he plans to play again in 2020 but will turn 36 in August. Jonnu Smith stands as the lead TE with Walker gone and will carry upside from his TE2 ADP if he remains in that spot. Tennessee also released K Ryan Succop.

The Titans have placed TE Delanie Walker (ankle) on IR. The 35-year-old has played in just 8 games over the past 2 seasons and might be at the end of his road. Jonnu Smith will operate as Tennessee's lead pass-catching TE the rest of the way, although he's tough to trust in Week 13 fantasy lineups after going target-less last week.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. Jonnu Smith will continue to serve as Tennessee’s lead TE and is a lower-end TE1 play in fantasy lineups.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) returned to limited practices this week but is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. So Jonnu Smith gets another game as Tennessee's lead TE. He's averaged 6 targets in his last 3 outings and is a low-end TE1 option.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Jaguars after missing the previous 3 games. It's unclear how Tennessee would divvy playing time between Walker and Jonnu Smith.
