Position Listing
Jalston Fowler
Fowler caught a 14-yard pass Sunday against the Raiders.

Fowler has been used almost exclusively as a traditional fullback this season. The 2015 fourth-rounder out of Alabama hasn't been the versatile weapon the Titans were hoping for when they drafted him that early.

Da'Norris Searcy
Searcy was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Searcy was removed from Sunday's game against the Chiefs with a concussion, but his full participation Wednesday implies that he's been cleared through the league's protocol and should be available in Week 16.

Jurrell Casey
Casey recorded six tackles and a pair of sacks in Sunday's Week 17 win over Houston.

Casey finishes the season with 44 tackles and 5.0 sacks. He missed a game due to a foot injury, but played in at least 15 contests for the sixth straight season since being picked in the third round of the 2011 draft. The durable defensive lineman is in the midst of a 4-year, $36 million extension, and will be back with the Titans in 2017.

Curtis Riley
Riley was promoted to the Titans' active roster on Thursday.

Riley got the call up from the practice squad after Chance Warmack (finger) was placed on IR. The 2015 undrafted free agent spent last season on IR after suffering an ankle injury in August, ending his rookie season hardly before it get started. Riley has played both cornerback and safety in the Titans' defense but figures to contribute the most in special teams this season.

Austin Johnson
No Updates
Sebastian Tretola
No Updates
Kevin Dodd
Dodd (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.

Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Anthony Fasano
Fasano caught his lone target for 12 yards Saturday in Jacksonville.

Fasano has eight catches this season, with no two coming in the same contest. The 32-year-old veteran is six receptions shy of his previous career low with just one game to play.

Tim Semisch
No Updates
D'Joun Smith
Smith (illness) was removed from the Titans' injury report in advance of Sunday's game against the Texans.

Smith was out sick Thursday but returned to practice in full form on Friday. He's all set for Sunday's season finale.

Chance Warmack
Titans right tackle Chance Warmack, who sprained his knee Sunday in Cleveland, will not play in Week 3 against Indianpolis, per ESPN.

He was on crutches after the loss to the Browns.

Ken Whisenhunt said Monday that Jamon Meredith, who replaced Warmack after he went down, will continue to start at that position.

Finger - Questionable for the start of training camp
Reshard Cliett
Cliett (hamstring) has returned to practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cliett suffered an injury on the first day of full contact drills and hasn't practiced in two weeks. The former safety has bulked up since being drafted in the sixth round of the 2015 draft out of South Florida and is now considered a linebacker, but needs to build up reps and get on the field for games.

K.J. Maye
No Updates
Avery Williamson
Williamson had seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Texans.

Williamson finishes his third NFL campaign with 103 tackles and 2.0 sacks. Seventy-two of those tackles were of the solo variety, placing the middle linebacker among the league's top 30 tacklers. He has improved every season, and should once again anchor the Titans defense next year.

David Fluellen
Fluellen was waived by the Titans on Monday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Fluellen didn't appear in a game for Tennessee during his brief stint on the active roster. Defensive end Mehdi Abdesmad was signed off the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Wesley Woodyard
The Titans have signed Sean Spence to compete with Woodyard and Avery Williamson at the inside linebacker position, the team's official site reports.

Spence is a special-teams standout who has also started 13 games over the past two seasons, making him a viable alternative should either of Tennesee's 2015 starters at the position struggle early in the new campaign. Woodyard should slot in ahead of Spence on the depth chart if he can stay healthy, but the veteran linebacker can't afford a dip in level at age 29.

Aaron Wallace
Wallace (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's tilt with the Packers.

Wallace will be sidelined due to a shoulder aliment. The reserve linebacker has only played in four games this season so his absence on Sunday shouldn't factor into the defense's game plan.

Tre McBride
McBride was promoted to the Titans' active roster on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

McBride will add some depth to at wideout, with Andre Johnson retiring from the team on Monday. The 23-year-old isn't likely to play much of a role on offense, but could see action on special teams.

Harry Douglas
Douglas was not targeted in Sunday's season finale against the Texans.

Douglas finishes the season with just 15 catches for 210 yards. The 32-year-old wide receiver is signed for one more year in Tennessee, but the Titans will likely part ways with him this offseason.

DaQuan Jones
Titans defensive tackle DaQuan Jones just got a promotion, and like anyone would be, he's happy about it, The Tennessean reports.

Jones is eager to showcase why he deserves his starting role, but he's also very aware that the season is a long ways ahead and anything can happen between now and then.

"I'm happy to go into the (OTAs) as a starter, but I know that nothing is set in stone and I know there's plenty of competition for that job," said Jones. "So now I'm just trying to make the most of my opportunity."

Jones, a fourth-round pick last season, played sparingly in the beginning of his rookie year -- appearing in just four of the team's first 13 games. He improved toward the end of the season and got his first start during the last game of the year against the Colts. Jones said he wants to continue to improve and show he can be a force on the defensive line.

"Right now I'm trying to work a lot on my base technique, trying to shed blocks faster and make plays," Jones said. "I'm trying to go into the season and be a playmaker."

Kevin Byard
No Updates
Antwaun Woods
Woods was signed to the Titans' active roster Wednesday.

Woods had spent the entire season on the Titans' practice squad. He takes the roster spot of Mehdi Abdesmad (ankle), who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Jerome Cunningham
Cunningham was claimed off waivers by the Titans.

This marks Cunningham's third team this calendar year, as the tight end was once waived by the Giants before getting the ax from the Jets on Tuesday. In nine games last season, the Southern Connecticut State product caught just eight passes for 59 yards. Now in Tennessee, Cunningham will provide depth behind Delanie Walker, Anthony Fasano, and Craig Stevens.

Matt Cassel
Cassel completed 16 of 26 passes for 150 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 24-17 win over Houston.

Cassel wasn't very impressive filling in for Marcus Mariota (leg), but did enough to win his lone start of the season. Most of his damage came courtesy of wide receiver Rishard Matthews, who had nine catches for 114 yards and a touchdown. The unrestricted free agent will likely land a backup role somewhere else this offseason.

Phillip Supernaw
Supernaw (concussion) does not appear on the Titans' injury report Wednesday.

Supernaw missed the two games prior to Tennessee's Week 13 bye, but his availability at Wednesday's practice suggests he isn't expected to miss any more time.

Taylor Lewan
Lewan (knee) will play in Sunday's game against the Bears.

Lewan was unable to practice earlier in the week due to a minor knee sprain, but he's slated to be active and get the start at left tackle in the Titans' Week 12 matchup.

Al Woods
Woods (calf) will be available to play Sunday against the Colts, The Tennessean's Jason Wolf reports.

Woods hasn't played in either of the Titans' last two games with a calf injury. However, he returned to practice this week and is ready to reclaim his starting nose tackle job from Austin Johnson.

Tyler Marz
No Updates
Josue Matias
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
No Updates
Brian Schwenke
Titans centers Brian Schwenke and Andy Gallik were unable to practice on Monday due to injuries, according to The Tennessean

Both are dealing with hamstring injuries. With those two out of the OTA practice, left guard Andy Levitre filled in at center. 

Nate Palmer
Palmer (knee) was removed from the Titans' injury report.

Palmer was held out of Week 4 due to a knee ailment, but appears to be over the injury and is expected to play on Sunday against the Dolphins.

Brian Orakpo
Orakpo had one tackle in Sunday's season finale against Houston.

Orakpo needed just half a sack over the final two weeks to tie his career high of 11.0, but failed to get it. On the bright side, the veteran outside linebacker played in all 16 games for the second consecutive season since joining the Titans while racking up a respectable 46 tackles. He looks spry as ever at age 30, and will once again be a threat for double-digit sacks in 2017.

Angelo Blackson
The Titans have signed four more of their draft picks on Wednesday including: Angelo Blackson, Andy Galilk, Tre McBride and Deiontrez Mount, the team announced.

Kendall Wright
Wright is listed as inactive Sunday against the Texans.

Wright has accumulated just 27 offensive snaps in back-to-back weeks, catching a combined four passes for 40 yards over two contests against Kansas City and Jacksonville. It won't be the first time Wright has been inactive for non-injury related reasons this season, leaving his any good standing with coach Mike Mularkey in question heading into 2017. In his stead, Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe will be in line for their regular roles, while Harry Douglas could see some more action in three wide receiver sets.

Tajae Sharpe
Sharpe wasn't targeted Sunday against the Texans.

Sharpe was quiet in the finale, as backup quarterback Matt Cassel didn't throw a single pass to a wide receiver besides Rishard Matthews. The rookie fifth-rounder out of UMass earned a starting spot in camp, and held onto it throughout the season en route to 41 catches for 522 yards and two touchdowns. While Sharpe doesn't have game-breaking size or speed, his route running and work ethic should make him an impact player for years to come.

Rishard Matthews
Matthews caught nine of 13 targets for 114 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Texans.

Matthews saw no decline in performance despite the downgrade at quarterback from Marcus Mariota (leg) to Matt Cassel. He was kept out of the end zone in his first four games with the Titans, but scored nine times in the last 12. With Mariota scheduled to be back from his broken fibula by the beginning of next season, Matthews will have a great chance to build on this 65-catch, 945-yard campaign.

Valentino Blake
The Titans and Blake agreed to a contract Thursday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.

One of six players to notch at least 75 tackles and 11 passes defended last season, Blake will take his talents from Pittsburgh to Tennessee, where he'll join forces with fellow cornerbacks Perrish Cox and Brice McCain. In addition to the aforementioned production, Blake recorded two touchdowns (including one pick-six), one sack, and one forced fumble across 16 games.

Karim Barton
The Browns signed quarterback Connor Shaw, linebackers Justin Staples and Keith Pough, offensive linemen Patrick Lewis and Karim Barton, tight end Emmanuel Ogbuehi and receiver Charles Johnson to their practice squad.
Tye Smith
The Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.

Picks that have signed are:

Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.

The only picks yet to sign with the team are second-round defensive end Frank Clark and third-round receiver Tyler Lockett.

Ben Jones
Every player listed as "probable" on the Texans injury report is active Thursday against the Colts. 

Studs like J.J. Watt, Arian Foster and Brian Cushing will play. Alfred Blue and Ryan Fitzpatrick were also cleared. 

The club will also have A.J. Bouye, Akeem Dent, Tim Jamison, Damaris Johnson, Ben Jones, Johnathan Joseph, Shane Lechler, Derek Newton, Ryan Pickett, Eddie Pleasant, D.J. Swearinger and Jeff Tarpinian available for the contest. All 12 players were listed as probable entering the game. 

Brice McCain
McCain (knee) was able to return to Sunday's game against the Colts, Jim Wyatt of Titans Online reports.

McCain was forced to the sideline earlier in the contest due to a minor knee injury, but was eventually able to return and even record an interception. He'll likely be good to go in Week 12 against the Bears, barring any setbacks.

Jason McCourty
McCourty 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.

Chest - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jonathan Krause
Krause was released from the Bucs practice squad Wednesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The 24-year-old had been brought back to the pratice squad back on Sept. 28, but was jettisoned Wednesday to make room for the return of Russell Hansbrough and Josh Keyes to the unit. Krause has shown some promise at both receiver and returner, so a potential return later in the season isn't out of the question.

Derrick Henry
Henry rushed 15 times for 65 yards and a touchdown while catching his lone target for three yards in Sunday's 24-17 win over Houston.

Henry outplayed DeMarco Murray, who looked gassed after receiving 293 carries this season. The second-rounder out of Alabama performed well in a complementary role as a rookie, finishing with 490 yards and five touchdowns on 110 carries. He'll need to work on catching the ball out of the backfield if he wants to earn more of an even split with Murray next season, as Henry hauled in just 13 receptions in 14 games.

Delanie Walker
Walker caught five of eight targets for 35 yards Sunday against the Texans.

Walker and wide receiver Rishard Matthews combined for 14 of the 16 completions by backup quarterback Matt Cassel, who started the finale after Marcus Mariota broke his leg in Week 16. The veteran tight end backed up his first career 1,000-yard campaign in 2015 with 65 catches for 800 yards and a career-high seven touchdowns this season. Walker will reprise the starting role next year, but could start to slow down given that he turns 33 in August.

Josh Kline
Patriots rookie starting center Bryan Stork is not practicing Wednesday, reports MassLive.com. He suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of the playoff win over Baltimore and did not return.

If Stork can't play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Colts, right guard Ryan Wendell will start at center with Josh Kline replacing Wendell.

New England is a 6.5-point home favorite.

LeShaun Sims
Sims (concussion) practiced fully on Wednesday.

Sims entered the concussion protocol after Saturday's loss to Jacksonville. Players often miss at least one game after being concussed but Sims appears on pace to return without missing a game.

Karl Klug
Klug (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.

Achilles - Questionable for the start of training camp
Justin Staples
The Titans have promoted Justin Staples to their live roster and added fellow linebacker Yawin Smallwood to their practice squad.

Staples, who was previously with Cleveland, has yet to play a down in the NFL. Smallwood was cut before the regular season by Atlanta.

Marc Mariani
Mariani recorded a 15-yard carry Sunday against Houston.

Mariani's only offensive touch of the season came in the season finale. The return specialist finishes with 560 kickoff return yards and 235 punt return yards without a touchdown. He made the Pro Bowl back in 2010, but may not be back with the Titans next year after this pedestrian campaign.

David Bass
Bass (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Saturday's game against the Jaguars.

Bass may be dealing with lingering effects from a groin injury that kept him out of last week's win over the Chiefs, so the Titans will be a bit thin at outside linebacker in Week 16.

Alex Tanney
Tanney was promoted to the active roster Tuesday, Jason Wolf of the Tennessean reports.

Tanney has been on the Titans practice squad since Week 2 and he'll suit up for the team for the first time in Week 17. He was promoted as a result of Marcus Mariota (leg) moving to injured reserve. Tanney will serve as the backup quarterback behind Matt Cassel.

Ryan Succop
Succop made his lone field goal attempt from 35 yards and added three extra points in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Texans.

Succop finishes with 22 made field goals on 24 attempts while converting 39 of 41 extra points. He didn't miss a single kick after Week 8, converting his final 11 field goal tries and 22 PATs. The 30-year-old veteran will be back with the Titans in 2017 for the final year of his three-year deal.

Daimion Stafford
Stafford (hamstring) does not appear on the Titans' injury report Wednesday.

Stafford missed his first game of the season in Week 12 against the Bears but has since been afforded the Titans' bye in Week 13. Due to his absence from the injury report, the former seventh-rounder should be available this weekend against Denver.

Marcus Mariota
Head 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.

Lower Leg - Questionable for the start of training camp
Caushaud Lyons
The lone injured player on the inactive list posted by the Steelers for their season opener Thursday night against New England is quarterback Landry Jones, who is dealing with a concussion.

Also inactive are tight end Jesse James, wideout Sammie Coates, cornerback Ross Cockrell, defensive ends Letterius Walton and Caushaud Lyons and offensive lineman Chris Hubbard.

Rashad Johnson
Johnson (neck) practiced in full Wednesday.

Johnson missed each of the Titans' last two games with a neck injury. Now back at practice -- and participating without limitation -- he appears set to play this weekend against the Packers.

Sean Spence
Spence (illness) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

Spence apparently only needed to sit out Wednesday's practice in order to get back to full strength. The 26-year-old will likely be available in his normal capacity for Week 17 against Houston as added depth for Tennessee's defense.

Kourtnei Brown
Brown was re-signed to the Bucs on Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The linebacker/defensive end returns to the Bucs after having been waived in late September. Brown displayed some play-making potential in preseason with three sacks, a pick-six and a fumble recovery and also played 19 total snaps between defense and special teams in Week 2. However, he's unlikely to receive a call-up to the active roster unless injury strikes.

Derrick Morgan
Morgan recorded five tackles in Sunday's season finale against the Texans.

Morgan finishes the 2016 campaign with 33 tackles and a career-high 9.0 sacks. Fellow outside linebacker Brian Orakpo added 10.5 sacks on the other side, as the two pass rushers formed one of the most effective tandems in the league. Rookie Kevin Dodd was supposed to play in a rotation with Orakpo and Morgan, but foot injuries and ineffectiveness prevented him from sapping many snaps. Morgan will be a major component of Tennessee's defense next season after racking up at least six sacks in four of the past five campaigns.

Jack Conklin
No Updates
Kalan Reed
Reed was promoted to the Titans' active roster Monday.

Reed, a rookie seventh-rounder from Southern Mississippi, was previously stationed on Tennessee's practice squad, but he'll now replace veteran cornerback Perrish Cox, who was released in a corresponding transaction Monday.

Antonio Andrews
Andrews rushed twice for 15 yards Sunday in San Diego.

Andrews took advantage of backup Derrick Henry's calf injury, and registered his first offensive touches of the season. Even if Henry remains out for a while, Andrews won't play more than a handful of snaps per game behind DeMarco Murray.

Quinton Spain
No Updates
Dennis Kelly
The Eagles declared quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone), cornerback Bradley Fletcher (hip), safety Jerome Couplin, wideout Jeff Maehl, offensive linemen Dennis Kelly and Julian Vandervelde, and defensive end Taylor Hart inactive for Sunday's game at the Giants.

With Fletcher inactive, corner Nolan Carroll will start.

Jace Amaro
Amaro (quad) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

Amaro briefly appeared on the injury report this week with a quad issue, but that lasted just one day after he was only limited during Tuesday's practice. Even though he now has a clean bill of health, Amaro hasn't seen any offensive snaps since Week 12 against the Bears.

Byron Bell
Bell is currently on the injured reserve list with a season-ending ankle injury, Tyler Dragon of NFL.com reports.

Bell dislocated his ankle back in the first day of OTAs. Rookie first-round draft pick Jack Conklin has filled in nicely at right tackle and will present a major obstacle for Bell to return to starting status in 2017.

Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
DeMarco Murray
Murray 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.

Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Mehdi Abdesmad
Abdesmad (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.

Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
