Humphries' placement on injured reserve Tuesday is related to the concussion he suffered earlier this season, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com reports. Humphries was sidelined for four games with the head injury before he was cleared to return to the lineup for Sunday's 41-35 loss to the Browns. While he wasn't known to have exited early in the contest due to an injury, he apparently was diagnosed with a recurrence of the concussion symptoms upon being evaluated after the contest. Humphries will now be sidelined for at least three games as a result of the setback, making him ineligible to suit up again for the Titans until Week 17 versus the Texans.
The Titans plan to place Humphries on injured reserve Tuesday due to an unspecified injury, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com reports. After missing four straight games due to a concussion, Humphries returned to the lineup for last week's loss to the Browns, playing 36 percent of the offensive snaps in the contest and finishing with one reception for nine yards on four targets. The Titans didn't indicate that Humphries suffered a recurrence of concussion symptoms in the contest or a new injury, but additional details on his situation should emerge in the coming days. He'll have to miss at least the next three games while on IR, making him ineligible to play again until Week 17 against the Texans.
Humphries recorded one reception on four targets for nine yards in Week 13 against the Browns. Humphries returned to game action after a four-game absence due to a concussion. He was on the field for only 36 percent of offensive snaps as the team has utilized more two-tight end formations, though he still managed four targets. Given that Ryan Tannehill took to the air 45 times against the Browns and Humphries still came up empty, it's unlikely that he'll see significant target volume in a Week 14 matchup against the Jaguars.
Humphries (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Browns, John Glennon of Broadway Sports Media reports. Humphries practiced fully all week, and his lack of injury designation suggests he has passed the league's five-step concussion protocol. The slot receiver is all set for his first game action since sustaining the concussion back in Week 8.
Humphries (concussion) practiced fully Wednesday, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports. Humphries opened Week 12 as a full practice participant, only to see his activity level downgraded the next two days before he was ruled out ahead of Sunday's win over the Colts. The fact that he's back to full participation to begin Week 13 is a welcome sign, but the Titans still have yet to reveal whether he's cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. The slot man -- who has caught 22 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns in six games this season -- last played Week 8.
