01/26/17DLMehdi AbdesmadAnkleQUESTIONABLEAbdesmad (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

The defensive end suffered an ankle injury in Saturday's loss to the Jaguars, effectively ending his season. In two games with the team he recorded one tackle, primarily serving a reserve role. The Titans promoted Antwaun Woods from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

01/26/17DLKevin DoddFootQUESTIONABLEDodd (foot) was placed on injured reserve Monday, The Tennessean reports.

The 33rd-overall selection in this year's draft, Dodd required offseason surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot. However, he may not have completely recovered since he's still experiencing discomfort. Because a second surgery remains a possibility, it isn't clear if Dodd will be ready for training camp when summer rolls around.

01/26/17DLKarl KlugAchillesQUESTIONABLEKlug (achilles) is progressing well in recovery from his December surgery, Paul Kuharsky of ESPN reports.

Klug tore his achilles late in the season and still faces months of recovery before he's back to full health. He isn't expected to be ready to return prior to training camp. He's currently a pending free agent, but he may be cheaper for the Titans to resign given his injury.

01/26/17QBMarcus MariotaLower LegQUESTIONABLEHead coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday that Mariota (fibula) likely won't take part in workouts until training camp, Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com reports.

Progress has been made from the broken right fibula that brought Mariota's second season to a close in Week 16. In particular, his rehab now includes work on a pool treadmill. Prior to the update from Mularkey, Mariota was expected to be a participant in OTAs in May or June, per Jason Wolf of The Tennessean. However, the Titans will now be "very cautious" with their franchise quarterback to ensure he avoids any setbacks as the offseason unfolds.

01/26/17DBBennett OkotchaShoulderQUESTIONABLEOkotcha (shoulder) ended the season on injured reserve.

Okotcha was waived with an injury designation during the preseason and was placed on IR after he cleared waivers. He's under contract with Tennessee through the 2018 season and will have a chance to make the roster as a depth corner and special teams option in 2017.

01/02/17DBJason McCourtyChestQUESTIONABLEMcCourty is listed as inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Texans.

McCourty's loss will be a tough one for a Tennessee secondary that surrendered 325 passing yards to Blake Bortles in his absence Week 16. With their top cover corner on the shelf, look for Valentino Blake to see an expanded role Sunday afternoon.

01/02/17RBDeMarco MurrayFootQUESTIONABLEMurray may undergo offseason surgery on the torn plantar plate in his right foot, The Tennessean reports. "It's just all about rest, and if it feels good after some time, then I think we'll skip the surgery," Murray said Monday. "But if not, I think that's something that [Titans director of sports medicine] Todd [Toriscelli] and those guys will have to decide, and we'll come up with a game plan. It just all depends on how I feel after a couple weeks."

Murray was running roughshod over the league during the first two months of the season, reaching the century mark on the ground four times in the first eight games. In the final outing of that run, though, he injured his foot and was variously listed with either foot or toe ailments for the remainder of the campaign. With regard to that part of the body, the plantar plate is a ligament structure that stabilizes toes in one's feet, hence the fluctuation between foot and toe on those injury reports. Once the prescribed period of rest is complete, it appears as if Murray and the Titans will come to a conclusion regarding the lingering issue, despite head coach Mike Mularkey not knowing a procedure was potentially on the table as of Monday.
