Fowler received some competition in camp from Sam Bergen, but seems to have solidified his role as the Titans fullback after playing 15 snaps in the regular season dress rehearsal compared to Bergen's three. The 2015 fourth-rounder out of Alabama brings some extra skill at the position, but is usually overlooked in favor of more traditional weapons.
New York's offensive line mostly did a solid job of keeping Casey out of their backfield, but the defensive lineman still found a way to make an imprint on the game by being active as a tackler. This performance puts Casey on pace for 53 tackles, which makes sense considering the 26-year-old has recorded between 52 and 55 in three of his first four NFL seasons.
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.
Coming off foot surgery, Dodd spent the first two weeks of camp readying himself for a return to the field. But, after undergoing a "strenuous" workout in front of the likes of HC Mike Mularkey on Tuesday, the team evidently saw enough to clear him for activity. Dodd didn't practice with the team Wednesday, though, and is extremely unlikely to play in Saturday's exhibition game versus Carolina, but Mularkey said Dodd could potentially play in the Titans' third preseason game against Oakland next week. Whenever he does return, he'll likely rotate in at OLB behind Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan (shoulder).
Quarterback Marcus Mariota likes to throw it to the tight end, but Delanie Walker has a near monopoly on production from that position in Tennessee. Fasano's value would shoot up if Walker got hurt, but the durable veteran has missed only three games since joining the Titans in 2013.
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.
Williamson surfaced from last Sunday's win over the Lions with the back injury, but that ailment didn't impact his availability at all this week. As a result, he's expected to assume his usual starting inside linebacker role against a much-improved Raiders running game Sunday.
Cox injured his ankle a little over two weeks ago, but after some rest and rehab, it appears Tennessee's starting cornerback is good as new. In his first season with the Titans last year, Cox started 13 games, so it's reasonable for Tennessee to expect the 29-year-old to take on a bigger role in the secondary this season.
Fluellen had a good preseason but it wasn't enough to get him a spot on the 53-man roster. He'll be a candidate for the practice squad if he clears waivers.
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 suffered a high ankle sprain during practice in early August, forcing the rookie to the sideline for a matter of weeks. The Titans take on the Panthers in their second preseason contest Saturday, but Wallace may not be ready to return to game action at this point. His next opportunity to play would be the following Saturday in Oakland.
McBride, a seventh-round pick of the Titans a year ago, was able to beat out Dexter McCluster for kickoff returning duties in training camp, but the organization decided that free agent veteran Marc Mariani was a better option to handle that role. In the event McBride fails to latch on with another team through the waiver process, he could rejoin the Titans organization as a member of the practice squad.
Despite seeing significant time in the slot due to the absence of Kendall Wright (hamstring), Douglas finished seventh on the team in receiving yards. There are simply too many mouths to feed in Tennessee for the former Falcons receiver to find much success.
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 is entrenched as the backup in Tennessee, so the Titans coaching staff opted to play him for just one drive to open the second half. The veteran is unlikely to see the field extensively unless Marcus Mariota gets hurt.
Riggs appeared in 11 games for Tennessee as a rookie last season, but the 24-year-old struggled to produce while on the field. The Titans were able activate Riggs to the 53-man roster by parting ways with quarterback Alex Tanney. Although he may serve as a contributor on special teams, it appears that Riggs will function as a last resort option in the Tennessee secondary.
Supernaw lacks the receiving chops of Delanie Walker, and even lags behind backup Anthony Fasano in that category. He's one-third of the way to matching his receptions total from each of the last two seasons.
Lewan will enter the season as the team's starting left tackle, and he will have to improve his play both in order to protect likely starter Marcus Mariota and lift a run game that rushed for 100 yards or less in 12 games.
"I know what to expect now in year two," Lewan said. "I know the things I have to do to be successful, at least more than what I did last year. My job isn't necessarily telling guys what to do, but try and win every single sprint, try and lift the most weight, do the best in my blocking techniques. If anybody wants to be a leader, I think that is where you start."
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.
After spending his first three seasons with the Packers, Palmer joined the Titans during the offseason. He's a backup linebacker who didn't see a single defensive snap Week 1, recording his one tackle on special teams. It's unlikely he has any value in IDP leagues this season.
Orakpo lived in the Lions backfield, making up for a quiet opener. He registered 7.0 sacks in the first 10 games of last season, and remains the best pass rusher on the Titans.
Johnson was trusted when it mattered most, hauling in the game-winning touchdown with 1:13 to play. The 35-year-old veteran doesn't have the legs to play on every snap, but his experience and work ethic have earned him an important role on a young Titans team. This likely won't be his last major contribution.
Per coach Mike Mularkey , "Kendall did more" work Thursday than he did during Wednesday's practice session. "He took a third of the reps yesterday and I told him to get at least half the reps today. We'll see how much better he is tomorrow." We'll revisit the wideout's status Friday, though we suspect that he will probably draw a questionable designation for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Sharpe was only targeted once in the first half, but picked things up a bit as the Titans fought back from a 15-3 deficit. He still tied for the team lead in targets, so expect the rookie to be heavily involved in the passing game moving forward. While he has established himself as the wide receiver to own in Tennessee, Sharpe's 9.9 yards per reception through two games suggest the fifth-rounder out of UMass might lack the explosiveness of other teams' top options due to the shorter routes preferred by quarterback Marcus Mariota.
Matthews led Titans wide receivers in yardage, but it was veteran Andre Johnson who caught the game-winning touchdown with 1:13 to play. With tight end Delanie Walker still serving as quarterback Marcus Mariota's top target and rookie Tajae Sharpe receiving significant attention across from Matthews, expectations for the offseason free agent acquisition should be tempered despite his starting role in Tennessee.
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.
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 had been dealing with a minor ankle injury for over a week, but his Thursday return indicates he may be able to play in the Titans' preseason opener Saturday against the Chargers. He's buried on the cornerback depth chart at this point, so he's got some proving to do.
It makes sense that the Titans would take McCourty off their injury list after he was able to play in Saturday's preseason game without any setbacks. A healthy McCourty will go a long way for Tennessee's secondary.
Henry got 10 touches to DeMarco Murray's 19, once again playing an expanded complementary role in the backfield. Neither Titans running back has found the end zone on the ground yet this season, though Murray has proven himself to be the more dangerous option in the passing game. The rookie out of Alabama will continue to be involved, but his value is capped as long as he's playing second fiddle.
While also a non-participant Wednesday, the veteran tight end did get in a limited showing Thursday, though head coach Mike Mularkey said after the practice that Walker hasn't shown any signs of improvement. If Walker ends up sitting, blocking specialist Anthony Fasano will likely take over as the top tight end, leaving more targets for the Tennessee wideouts and running backs.
New England is a 6.5-point home favorite.
Earlier Friday, FOX Sports 1 reported that Orakpo agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal with the Titans. Orakpo was the 13th overall pick in the 2009 draft and made Pro Bowls in 2009, 2010 and 2013.
Morgan re-signed with the Titans on a four-year, $30 million deal, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. The Titans took him 16th overall in the 2010 draft.
Fasano caught 25 passes for 226 yards and four touchdowns with the Chiefs a year ago. After five years with the Chiefs, Succop hit 19 of 22 on field goals and a perfect 27 of 27 on extra points in his first year with the Titans in 2014.
Klug, a fifth-round pick in 2011, re-signed with the Titans to a long-term deal. In four seasons with Tennessee, he's recorded 101 tackles, 14.5 sacks and four forced fumbles.
The Titans have plenty of familiarity with Mariani, who was a seventh-round pick of the franchise in 2010 and made the Pro Bowl during his rookie season as a return specialist. The Bears decided to cut Mariani after training camp and go with another direction in the return game, but the Titans evidently believe the 29-year-old still has some game-breaking ability. Tennessee released receiver Tre McBride to make roster room for Mariani, who in addition to taking over as the team's primary kickoff returner, figures to be deployed occasionally in four- or five-wideout sets.
The Bears are 6-point underdogs for Sunday's game.
After an unappetizing preseason performance and inactive status for Sunday's season opener, Tennessee opted to part ways with Tanney on Tuesday. As a result, the Titans now list just two quarterbacks on their active roster. In all likelihood, Tennessee will look to add another quarterback before next week's game.
Succop wasn't called upon to do much, but at least he didn't miss on a day that saw many kickers misfiring on both field goals and extra points. He wasn't brought in after Tennessee's second touchdown because the Titans went for two trailing by nine in the final minute. With quarterback Marcus Mariota entering his second year, and offseason upgrades being made at wide receiver and running back, the Titans offense figures to provide Succop with more opportunities than last year.
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 Byron Stingily and Kamerion Wimbley. Both Stingily and Wimbley were listed as questionable. Daimion Stafford, who came into the contest listed as probable, will also be available.
Mariota was held to just 81 passing yards in the first half, but turned things around as the Titans came back from a 15-3 deficit. The second-year quarterback demonstrated improved decision-making in leading a methodical 93-yard game-winning drive that culminated with a nine-yard touchdown pass to Andre Johnson with 1:13 left. He has been quiet with his feet after flashing deceptively good speed and instincts as a rookie, but has topped 230 passing yards in both of his 2016 games after doing so in only half of his 12 starts last season.
Despite missing two games last year due to an ankle injury, Johnson put up solid numbers at safety for the Cardinals, amassing 61 tackles (50 solo) and five interceptions. With the Cardinals appearing disinterested in re-signing their safety during the offseason due to age concerns, the 30-year-old safety will likely battle with former fourth-round pick Marqueston Huff for the starting free safety spot in what amounts to a "prove-it" type deal.
A third-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, Spence emerged as a key backup for the Steelers the past two seasons, recording 90 combined tackles in 2014 and 2015. He should help on special teams in Tennessee, and he may even compete with Wesley Woodyard for a starting spot alongside Avery Williamson.
Morgan was limited in practice this week after sitting out Week 2 due to his hamstring injury. If he's unable to play or is limited, look for Kevin Dodd, David Bass, and Aaron Wallace to rotate in his absence.
The Titans opted to keep just three running backs, which is one fewer than expected. Nonetheless, the team's 2015 leading rusher was able to secure a spot on the final roster unlike Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster or David Cobb. He's unlikely to see the field on offense unless DeMarco Murray or Derrick Henry get hurt, but could mix in on special teams as a kick returner.
With Fletcher inactive, corner Nolan Carroll will start.
Both are dealing with hamstring injuries. With those two out of the OTA practice, left guard Andy Levitre filled in at center.
Amaro joined the Titans earlier this month after being released by the Jets just two years after they drafted him in the second round. Although Amaro is reportedly comfortable with a package of plays right now, he may be forced into a larger role if Walker is unavailable. At the moment, Walker is considered questionable, making it uncertain whether the Titans will have to cope without their top tight end Sunday.
The majority of Murray's rushing yardage came on a 67-yard run, as he managed just 2.0 yards per carry outside of that play and was brought down in his own end zone for a safety on one occasion. He was once again involved as a receiver, finishing second on the team in yards and leading in catches one week after scoring twice through the air. Rookie Derrick Henry got nine carries, but the offseason trade acquisition is still the clear leading man in Tennessee's backfield given his involvement in every aspect of the offense.
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 signed by the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Texas at San Antonio in May.
