Position Listing
Kris Durham
News
The Titans claimed receiver Kris Durham off waivers from the Lions. Durham caught 38 passes for 490 yards and two touchdowns last year.
Jason McCourty
News
Titans cornerback Jason McCourty totaled five tackles (three solo) and one pass defense during a 30-24 overtime loss Week 2 at Houston. He has nine tackles (seven solo) and two pass defenses in two games.
Colin McCarthy
News
Titans linebacker Colin McCarthy was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. McCarthy underwent shoulder surgery earlier in August, so the assignment isn't a surprise.
Injury
Shoulder - Doubtful for Week 1 at Kansas City
Michael Oher
News
The Titans might not start rookie offensive tackle Taylor Lewan until 2015, reports the Tennessean. But that all depends on the status of current left tackle Michael Roos, reports TitansInsider.com.

The Tennessean reports that Lewan will likely be the top reserve behind Roos and right tackle Michael Oher. It adds that "more than likely, Lewan is going to be a backup in 2014."

But TitansInsider.com reports that with Lewan in the fold, there is talk the Titans might move Roos. He is set to make $6.625 million this year and was paid a $1 million roster bonus last month.

The report adds that moving on from Roos would not cost the Titans anything cap wise since he is in the last year of his deal. But talk of the move is just speculation for now.

Brandon Harris
News
The Texans have waived cornerback Brandon Harris on Friday, according to Comcast SportsNet Houston. Harris was a 2011 second-round pick out of the University of Miami that never started a game in Houston.
Jurrell Casey
News
Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey signed a four-year contract extension worth $36 million, including $20.5 million guaranteed, his agent told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Casey had 10.5 sacks and 55 tackles last year.
Andy Levitre
News
Guard Andy Levitre (hip), linebacker Akeem Ayers (knee) and center Brian Schwenke (ankle) will not participate in next week's OTAs as they recover from surgical procedures, reports ESPN.com.
Delanie Walker
News
Titans tight end Delanie Walker was a solid producer for Fantasy owners in 2013, but he enters this season still expected to be just a No. 2 option in the majority of leagues.

The Titans beat writer for the Tennessean, Jim Wyatt, shared his projections for Walker this season, and he has him at 62 catches for 646 yards and five touchdowns.

To see how those projections compare to mine and Dave Richard check out this Fantasy Football Today blog here.

Travis Coons
News
The Titans waived kicker Travis Coons to make room for newly-signed Ryan Succop, reports the Tennessean.
Charlie Whitehurst
News
Titans backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst is expected back in practice on Monday, the Tennessean reports.

"I think we'll know a little bit more as we get to next week, but I don't anticipate that anybody will be missing practice next week," head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "Once again, I can't speak until something that may happen between now and then, but I don't anticipate that."
Injury
Finger - Questionable for Week 1 at Kansas City
Karl Klug
News
Several Titans listed on the injury report are active for their game vs. Arizona, including linebacker Akeem Ayers and cornerback Alterraun Verner, who were questionable with groin injuries.

Defensive end Karl Klug (back), guard Andy Levitre (hip), center Brian Schwenke (ankle), offensive tackle David Stewart (shoulder) and running back Leon Washington (ankle) all will play after being listed as probable.

Jake Locker
News
Titans quarterback Jake Locker had an impressive showing Saturday night against the Falcons in preseason action.

Locker hooked up with Nate Washington for a 63-yard touchdown strike in the second quarter. He was sacked twice and compiled 188 yards through the air while completing 18 of 23 passes. He added a touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 126.6 passer rating. He had one run for a gain of 12 yards.
Kamerion Wimbley
News
The Titans and defensive end Kamerion Wimbley agreed to a restructured contract that will pay him $9 million over three years, reports ESPN's Adam Caplan. Wimbley had been scheduled to make $6 million this season, but the team asked him to take a pay cut and he agreed rather than possibly get released.
Chance Warmack
News
The Titans listed offensive tackle David Stewart (shoulder) and guard Chance Warmack (ankle) as probable for Thursday's game against the Colts. Both practiced fully Tuesday and Wednesday.

Linebacker Zaviar Gooden is officially questionable with a hamstring injury despite not practicing all week.

Daimion Stafford
News
Four of the Titans' last five picks in the NFL draft were on the defensive side of the ball. The team took Mizzou linebacker Zaviar Gooden, LSU defensive end Lavar Edwards, Nevada cornerback Kahlid Wooten and Nebraska safety Daimion Stafford.
Avery Williamson
News
With the 151st pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans selected inside linebacker Avery Williamson from Kentucky.

WIlliamson registered at least six tackles in every game he started except for one last year for the Wildcats. The 6-foot-1, 246-pounder amassed 237 tackles with four sacks in his last two collegiate seasons.
Wesley Woodyard
News
What was rumored is now official. The Titans have signed middle linebacker Wesley Woodyard to a four-year contract for $16 million, per the Denver Post.

The 27-year-old Woodyard will play that position after the Broncos did not allow him to. He lost his starting job at the end of 2013, during which he finished with 84 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks.



Eric Ward
News
The Titans signed five undrafted rookies, reports Pro Football Talk. They are linebacker David Gilbert (Miami), receiver Julian Horton (Arkansas), running back Waymon James (TCU), offensive lineman Viondy Merisma (American International) and cornerback Winston Wright (South Dakota State).

Tennessee waived fullback Quinn Johnson, cornerback George Baker and linebacker Jamal Merrell. Receiver Eric Ward was waived/injured.

Injury
Dexter McCluster
News
Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated that his initial depth chart at running back -- Shonn Greene as starter, followed by Dexter McCluster and rookie Bishop Sankey -- isn't exactly written in stone.

"We had to list somebody at one," Whisenhunt told The Tennessean. "We're rotating those guys, and he was the senior member. He came back and has worked hard. That's where we are right now."

Derrick Morgan
News
The Titans' Derrick Morgan is moving from defensive end to outside linebacker in Tennessee's new 3-4 scheme. He told TitanInsider.com that he played some linebacker at Georgia Tech, so the transition won't be that difficult.

"My first position playing football was at linebacker, but it's been awhile. It's not too different. It's not too foreign for me to stand up and play out of a two-point stance. I've just got to continue to work at it," Morgan said. "I moved around a lot, especially my junior year, all over the field, linebacker, blitzing and stuff like that. I've definitely done it before."

Morgan has 16.5 sacks in four years and will be counted on to provide a big pass rush this season.

"I feel like I can rush the passer. That's what I was brought in to do. I feel like I can cover if need be," he said. "I'm still playing in the NFL. This is a great job. This is a change-up, but something I'm definitely going to embrace and work hard at."

DaQuan Jones
News
The Titans announced the signings of defensive back Marqueston Huff and defensive tackle DaQuan Jones on Thursday, both getting four-year deals.

Huff figures to begin his career contributing on special teams while finding a spot on the depth chart at either corner or safety. Jones is a big body who should work along the defensive line. 

T.J. Graham
News
The Titans claimed wideout T.J. Graham off waivers from the Bills. Graham made 54 catches over the past two seasons with Buffalo, scoring three touchdowns.
Coty Sensabaugh
News
The Titans have elevated cornerback Khalid Wooten from the practice squad and placed cornerback Coty Sensabaugh on IR with a foot injury. Sensabaugh has been an occasional starter this season. He tied a season-high with five tackles Sunday against Arizona.
Zach Mettenberger
News
Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger was much better in his second preseason action Friday, in a 31-24 loss to the Saints.

Mettenberger took over at quarterback in the second quarter after Charlie Whitehurst left with an injury, and he played the rest of the game. He compiled a game-high 269 yards through the air while completing 20 of 25 passes and tosses two touchdowns, including one for 64 yards. He also tossed one interception in the game.

If Whitehurst's injury proves serious, Mettenberger has a chance to open the season as the Titans' primary backup at the quarterback spot. He has completed 24 of 32 passes for 356 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions in his first two preseason games. 

Leon Washington
News
Shonn Greene is the Titans' starting running back, according to the team's first depth chart. He's followed by Dexter McCluster, rookie Bishop Sankey and Leon Washington.

The depth chart contradicts the conventional wisdom that Sankey, the first back drafted, will end up leading Tennessee in carries.

Michael Griffin
News
Titans receiver Nate Washington and safety Michael Griffin could return to the team in 2014 despite each having a hefty salary, reports the Tennessean.

Griffin is owed $6.2 million in 2014, and Washington is scheduled to earn $4.8 million. Despite that, the report says both are expected back for next season.

Taylor Thompson
News
Titans offensive coordinator Jason Michael likes what sees from tight end Taylor Thompson so far this offseason, reports the team's official website.

"I think Taylor Thompson has come along," Michael said. "He's still young to the position, with changing from defensive end, and I know we've talked about those things and at some point, he's got to put that behind him and move forward and be a tight end and I think he's making steps toward doing that and working hard every day. He's a big receiving threat who is a strong, physical guy and just has to put it all together. He's done a good job through OTAs and minicamp. We've just got to keep making those strides in training camp and into the season."

Bishop Sankey
News
Titans rookie running back Bishop Sankey played only with the backups in Saturday's win over the Falcons. Entering in the second half, Sankey ran 16 times for 44 yards (2.8 ypc) and a touchdown. He was targeted once without a catch.

Sankey worked behind Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington.

Akeem Ayers
News
Titans linebacker Akeem Ayers underwent knee procedures in January and March, and it's unclear when he'll be 100 percent healthy, reports TitanInsider.com. Ayers played in every game last season, recording 49 tackles, an interception, a forced fumble and a sack.

He was limited during the offseason program.

Derek Hagan
News
The Buccaneers waived wide receiver Carlton Mitchell, defensive end Ernest Owusu, quarterback Adam Weber and defensive end Markus White, and released wide receiver Derek Hagan, fullback Spencer Larsen and safety Troy Nolan.

The team also put corner Anthony Gaitor (torn ACL) and running back Michael Smith (torn foot ligament) on injured reserve. Finally, the team signed tight end Mike Shanahan.

Zaviar Gooden
News
Titans linebacker Zach Brown was benched in favor of Zaviar Gooden for the opening series due to an unspecified rule violation, ESPN reports. Brown was the starting inside linebacker for the Titans through all of training camp.

"I would describe it as pissing me off," coach Ken Whisenhunt said. Brown said "If he ain't elaborating, I ain't either"
Byron Stingily
News
The Titans listed seven players as inactive for their game vs. Arizona: quarterback John Skelton, wideouts Justin Hunter and Damian Williams, defensive back Micah Pellerin, center Kevin Matthews, offensive tackle Byron Stingily and defensive tackle Mike Martin.
Antonio Johnson
News
According to the Tennessean, the following players will not suit up for the Titans Saturday night against the Falcons in Atlanta: center Chris Spencer, center Gabe Ikard, quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, and defensive lineman Antonio Johnson and Mike Martin.
Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Patrick Bailey
News
Though seven Titans defensive players were listed on the injury report for Week 9 against the Rams, the team is mostly healthy in time for kickoff Sunday.

Defensive linemen Ropati Pitoitua (calf), Jurrell Casey (ankle) and Derrick Morgan (shoulder) and linebackers Patrick Bailey (hamstring) and Zaviar Gooden (hamstring) are all active for Sunday despite their injuries.  

Taylor Lewan
News
The Titans signed first-round pick Taylor Lewan, an offensive tackle out of Michigan, to a four-year deal, reports the Tennessean. Selected 11th overall, Lewan will try to unseat free agent acquisition Michael Oher at right tackle.
Al Woods
News
The Titans signed defensive lineman Al Woods to a two-year deal Wednesday, ending his two-year run with the Steelers. Woods' contract will pay him $5 million over two years, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Woods is coming off the most productive season of his career, as he played in all 16 games for the first time in four seasons. He picked up 16 tackles and two sacks, the latter of which represents a career-high for the 26-year-old. 

Jackie Battle
News
Titans running back Jackie Battle left Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons with a stinger, the team announced. Battle sustained the injury in the first half and was unable to return for the remainder of the game.
Josh Stewart

Zach Brown
News
Titans linebacker Zach Brown was benched in favor of Zaviar Gooden for the opening series due to an unspecified rule violation, ESPN reports. Brown was the starting inside linebacker for the Titans through all of training camp.

"I would describe it as pissing me off," coach Ken Whisenhunt said. Brown said "If he ain't elaborating, I ain't either"
Nate Washington
News
Titans wide receiver Nate Washington found the end zone and fell just six yards from cracking the century mark during Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Washington came down with a 63-yard touchdown pass from Jake Locker in the second quarter. His next catch came during the third quarter for a gain of 31 yards. He was targeted five times and finished with three catches for 94 yards and a touchdown.
Kendall Wright
News
Titans receiver Kendall Wright is the team's best offensive player by a good margin, and Tennessee should force-feed him the ball, reports ESPN.com. The website notes Wright, who caught 94 passes last year, will be used more creatively by new coach Ken Whisenhunt: not just in the slot but outside, on deep throws and near the goal line.

"He's caught everything thrown to him, by whichever quarterback, over whichever defender, against whatever coverage," the report said.

Michael Roos
News
The Titans might not start rookie offensive tackle Taylor Lewan until 2015, reports the Tennessean. But that all depends on the status of current left tackle Michael Roos, reports TitansInsider.com.

The Tennessean reports that Lewan will likely be the top reserve behind Roos and right tackle Michael Oher. It adds that "more than likely, Lewan is going to be a backup in 2014."

But TitansInsider.com reports that with Lewan in the fold, there is talk the Titans might move Roos. He is set to make $6.625 million this year and was paid a $1 million roster bonus last month.

The report adds that moving on from Roos would not cost the Titans anything cap wise since he is in the last year of his deal. But talk of the move is just speculation for now.

Blidi Wreh-Wilson
News
The Titans have listed the following players active for Week 7 against the 49ers despite dealing with injuries: running back Jackie Battle (neck), defensive lineman Lavar Edwards (shoulder), running back Shonn Greene (knee), defensive lineman Sammie Lee Hill (ankle), defensive back Bernard Pollard (ankle) and defensive back Blidi Wreh-Wilson (hamstring).
Craig Stevens
News
Titans tight end Craig Stevens agreed to a pay cut that slashes his 2014 salary from $3.4 million to $1.6 million, according to OverTheCap.com. Stevens, 29, is a blocking tight end who's never caught more than 23 passes in a season.
Shaun Phillips
News
Free agent defensive end Shaun Phillips signed a two-year deal worth up to $6 million with the Titans, reports the Tennessean. Phillips had 10 sacks for the Broncos last season.
Marqueston Huff
News
The Titans announced the signings of defensive back Marqueston Huff and defensive tackle DaQuan Jones on Thursday, both getting four-year deals.

Huff figures to begin his career contributing on special teams while finding a spot on the depth chart at either corner or safety. Jones is a big body who should work along the defensive line.

Brett Kern

Titans LB Akeem Ayers, P Brett Kern and WR Kendall Wright are active Week 14 against the Broncos. 

Wright practiced in full Thursday and Friday. Ayers and Kern were able to return to full practice Friday. 

Beau Brinkley
No Updates
Justin Hunter
News
Titans receiver Justin Hunter is making the fade pattern "look all too easy," reports the Tennessean. When the team get near the goal line, Jake Locker lofts a pass toward the corner of the end zone and "the 6-4, 203-pound Hunter turns into the Titans' version of a jack-in-the-box, leaping over defenders to haul in a touchdown pass – just as he did in Friday's loss to the Saints," the paper said.

"He's so big and so long, and he has the ability to jump and he has such a big catch radius," Locker told the paper. "You're able to put the ball a lot of places to give him a chance. That puts a lot of pressure on the defense at that point."

Hunter beat the Chargers with a leaping 34-yard touchdown catch in the closing seconds last year. He's looking for a lot more opportunities in the end zone this season.

"They want to use my big frame, so they throw it to me there," Hunter said. "The cornerback has to turn his back at some point to try to defend me. That's when I can use my leaping ability to go over the top of him – before he gets a chance to figure it out."
Sammie Lee Hill
News
Titans defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill has been given the green light for Sunday at Indianapolis with a back injury that had him designated as questionable. 
George Wilson
News
Titans defensive back George Wilson recorded his first interception of the season and first since 2011 Week 16 at Jacksonville, picking off quarterback Chad Henne to preserve a four-point lead late in the fourth quarter.

Wilson, who only plays in certain formations, also had a solo tackle.

Chris Spencer
News
According to the Tennessean, the following players will not suit up for the Titans Saturday night against the Falcons in Atlanta: center Chris Spencer, center Gabe Ikard, quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, and defensive lineman Antonio Johnson and Mike Martin.
Gabe Ikard
News
Titans offensive lineman Gabe Ikard will miss the entirety of the upcoming season, as he is set to have season-ending knee surgery. 
Injury
Ropati Pitoitua
News
The Titans agreed to a new three-year deal with defensive end Ropati Pitoitua on Thursday, the same day his son, Ryder, was born.

Per The Tennessean, Pitoitua will land $9.6 million over the deal with a $2.175 million signing bonus.

Pitoitua is a run-stopping defensive lineman with the Titans; he's totaled 95 tackles and seven sacks over the last two seasons. 

Shonn Greene
News
Titans running back Shonn Greene played 12 first-half snaps in Saturday's win over the Falcons, compared to zero for rookie Bishop Sankey. Greene ran six times for 15 yards and was not targeted in the passing game.

Greene has run for 81 yards on 19 preseason carries (4.3 ypc).
