Cyprien (ankle) started at strong safety in the Titans' preseason opener against the Jets. Cyprien suffered from a leg injury during Titans minicamp back in June, but it appears he is since over the minor injury and is set to take his spot as the team's starting strong safety this season.
Cyprien suffered a minor ankle injury in Titans minicamp Tuesday, Jason Wolf of the Tennessean reports. Head coach Mike Mularkey confirmed it's a minor injury. Cyprien should be ready to go for training camp. Look for more updates to come at that time.
Cyprien will sign with the Titans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Cyprien has never recorded less than 100 tackles in his NFL career thus far, and while he struggles sometimes in pass coverage, he is nevertheless a very talented player who should provide a boost to Tennessee's defense. It will be interesting to see if Titans defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau utilizes Cyprien in a similar fashion to the way he deployed fellow strong safety Troy Polamalu during Lebeau's prosperous stint in Pittsburgh.
Cyprien forced a fumble while collecting 17 tackles in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. Cyprien is on fire, as he's posted 31 tackles over his last two games after not having more than 12 in any other game this season. As a safety, he's looking like a fantastic waiver wire add in IDP leagues if he's still available.
Cyprien forced a fumble while piling up 14 tackles in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. Cyprien posted at least nine tackles for the fifth time this season, and he's only had fewer than five on two occasions. As a safety, his ability to have games with big tackle totals makes him a high-upside option in IDP leagues.
