Wright, the 20th overall pick in the 2012 draft, is scheduled to earn $1.4 million this season. He caught a career-high six touchdowns last year, though his receiving yards fell from 1,079 in 2013 to 715 yards in 2014. Wright drew just 6.6 targets per game and suffered from Tennessee's unsettled quarterback situation.
Wright came into the game questionable due to a broken hand, but was able to excel despite the issue. He only hauled in four passes, but was able to connect on some deep passes. In the fourth quarter, Wright pulled down a 39 yard reception. He finished with 73 yards on five targets.
Wright will look for more Week 17 against the Colts.
Both players came into the game listed as questionable. Wright is dealing with a hand injury. Walker has a knee issue. Both players will attempt to play through their injuries.
The team will also have
Deemed questionable are wide receiver
The lone probable is safety
"My feeling is I want to play, and if it feels like I felt today, then I'll be a go,'' Wright said. "But if it hurts or gets worse, I wouldn't go out there. … I want to be able to catch, block, and be a complete receiver when I am out there. That's the main thing."
If Wright experiences a setback and is unable to play, the Titans will have to lean on Nate Washington, Derek Hagan and Kris Durham in the passing game.
The Titans are a 3-point underdog against the Jags.
