Kendall Wright (knee) practiced fully Thursday. "I think he's good to go, I really do," interim coach Mike Mularkey said Thursday with regard to Wright's chances of playing Sunday against the Raiders. "He had more reps today and I saw him do some things, so I feel good about him."
Prior to missing the last three games with a knee injury, Wright had recorded 28 catches for 343 yards and three touchdowns in seven games in his role as a starting wideout for the Tennessee Titans .
Kendall Wright returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since suffering a knee injury back on November 1.
In the process, interim coach Mike Mularkey said that Wright looked good, which bodes well for the wideout's chances of returning to action Sunday against the Raiders. "He looked much better than I was expecting, he really did," Mularkey said Wednesday. "We still limited him to a specific number of plays, just to make sure we are not overusing him."
Wright missed the past three games, allowing a few different players to see extra targets. Delanie Walker took advantage and will remain a crucial piece of the Tennessee passing game, but none of the wideouts made a strong impression. Despite the early optimism, Wright likely still needs to prove his health during practice. He did, however, confirm that he's expected to play in Sunday's game, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's official website.
Kendall Wright (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.
Wright will thus miss his third straight game, though we suppose that he may have enough healing time in advance of Week 12 in order to potentially return to action when the Tennessee Titans face the Raiders on Nov. 29. With Wright still out and Justin Hunter now on IR, Harry Douglas and Dorial Green-Beckham represent the team's top two healthy wideout options this week.
Kendall Wright (knee) didn't practice Tuesday, Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com reports.
The absence may have been a precautionary measure, but it follows up a limited showing at Monday's practice, placing further question into Wright's Week 11 availability. The Tennessee Titans will provide a better indication of his status heading into Thursday's game at Jacksonville with the release of Wednesday's injury report. However, if he misses his third outing in row, Marcus Mariota will be down to Harry Douglas, Dexter McCluster, and Dorial Green-Beckham as his top WR threats.
