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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
New England is a 6.5-point home favorite.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With Fletcher inactive, corner Nolan Carroll will start.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Kern, 29, began his career with the Broncos before joining the Titans in 2009. He holds multiple franchise records including gross punting average (44.9 yards) and net punting average (40.0).
He finished fifth in the NFL in gross punting average in 2015 with a mark of 46.8 yards. Kern was set to be a free agent on Tuesday had the Titans not re-signed him.
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.
