Derrick Morgan: Announces retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan is retiring from football, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

A 2010 first-round pick, Morgan played each of his nine NFL seasons with Tennessee, notching 306 tackles (208 solo) and 44.5 sacks in 118 games. He had at least 4.5 sacks every year from 2012 to 2017, averaging 6.7 per season during that stretch. With fellow outside linebacker Brian Orakpo also retiring, the Titans are counting on Cameron Wake, Harold Landry and Kamalei Correa to provide a pass rush off the edge for an otherwise stellar defense.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Could move on from Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan, an impending free agent, said he isn't too worried about his future and plans to evaluate all his options, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

The 2010 first-round pick made it through the entirety of a four-year, $27 million contract, but he had just 25 tackles and 0.5 sacks in 13 games (12 starts) this past season. He'll presumably have to settle for a smaller contract ahead of his age-30 campaign, and there's no guarantee of a starting job whether he stays in Tennessee or heads elsewhere. Morgan did have 16.5 sacks in 29 games between the 2016 and 2017 seasons, so it's still reasonable to hope for a rebound.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Battles through knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan recorded four tackles in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.

Morgan was battling a knee injury during the short week leading up to Thursday's action, though he managed to take the field against Jacksonville. He's battled issues throughout the season -- a shoulder injury caused him to miss a month of action -- limiting his effectiveness. Regarded as one of the Titans' best pass rushers entering the season, he has just 0.5 sacks and 19 tackles.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Ready to go Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Jaguars, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Morgan will play through his lingering knee injury and suit up against the Jaguars on Thursday Night Football. If the veteran is hindered in any way and sees a snap count, Harold Landry could benefit from a slight increase in workload.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Questionable for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.

Morgan was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice after having been sidelined Monday and Tuesday. If the veteran linebacker is unable to play Thursday, Harold Landry is expected to slot into the starting lineup.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (knee) is listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Morgan seems to have picked up a knee injury during Sunday's 26-22 win over the Jets. The veteran linebacker's chances of suiting up against the Jaguars on Thursday are murky at best, and if Morgan were to remain sidelined for any amount of time Harold Landry would slot into the starting lineup.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Active Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (illness) is active for Monday's game against the Texans, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Morgan was a Sunday addition to the injury report after coming down with an illness, but he appears ready to play through it as the Titans look to pick up a big win in Houston.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan is officially listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Texans, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Morgan is a surprise addition to the Titans' injury report and is listed as questionable for Monday's tilt against the Texans due to an illness. The veteran linebacker's Week 12 availability will come down to how quickly he's able to get healthy, and if Morgan is unable to suit up, expect Harold Landry to slot into the starting lineup.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Fully returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Morgan has not seen the field since Week 6 due to a lingering shoulder injury, but he finally appears to be nearing a full recovery. The veteran linebacker may need to log another full participation in practice Friday in order to suit up for Tennessee's tilt against the Colts in Week 11, but it's worth noting that Morgan seems to be trending towards a return.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (shoulder) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Morgan will be sidelined for a third consecutive contest with a shoulder injury, while Harold Landry is slated to fill in at outside linebacker across from Brian Orakpo.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Morgan did not practice Friday after being limited to begin the week. The veteran linebacker has not seen the field since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 6, and he could be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Patriots. If Morgan is unable to suit up, expect second-round rookie Harold Landry to receive an increased defensive role.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Morgan sat out Monday's win over the Cowboys due to a lingering shoulder injury and still appears to be managing his recovery. The veteran linebacker should be considered questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Patriots, and if Morgan were to miss any time, expect rookie second-round pick Harold Landry to once again receive an uptick in defensive snaps.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (shoulder) was ruled out for Monday's game against the Cowboys, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Morgan will miss his second straight game following the shoulder injury suffered Week 6, which isn't overly surprising as coach Mike Vrabel said he would be sidelined a few weeks. The 29-year-old was able to progress to a limited practice participant Saturday, which will hopefully bring some positive momentum into next week. Rookie second-round pick Harold Landry is likely to be the main beneficiary of Morgan's absence at Dallas.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Not practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Morgan was expected to miss multiple weeks after suffering a shoulder injury in Week 6 and does not appear to be nearing a full return to health. Rookie second-round pick Harold Landry will slot into the starting lineup once more if Morgan is unable to suit up against the Cowboys on Monday.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Expected to miss a few weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (shoulder) will be out a few weeks according to head coach Mike Vrabel, Travis Haney of The Athletic reports.

Morgan exited Sunday's game with his shoulder injury. The specifics of the injury are unclear for the time being. Look for second-round pick Harold Landry to see extra time with Morgan sidelined.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Leaves with injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan exited Sunday's game against the Ravens with a shoulder injury, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

As Glennon notes, it's the latest in a string of injuries among the Titans' linebackers. Harold Landry should handle most of snaps on the edge if Morgan is sidelined for the remainder of the contest.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup with Houston.

Morgan will figure to start Sunday despite his limited status in practice this past week. If he's limited at all with his knee injury, look for Harold Landry to see some extra reps.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Questionable against Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (knee) is questionable to suit up against the Texans on Sunday.

Morgan was a limited participant in Friday's practice. The veteran defensive end played only 14 snaps in Tennessee's season opener, but he should be ready for an increased role after a week of healing. Morgan seems in line to suit up against Houston on Sunday.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (knee) was a full practice participant Thursday.

Morgan finished last week as a full participant Thursday and Friday but subsequently played only 14 snaps against the Dolphins. He then returned to practice in limited fashion Wednesday. The veteran defensive end should apparently be closer to 100 percent for Sunday's game against the Texans after having a limited role in Week 1, Travis Haney of The Athletic reports.

Titans' Derrick Morgan: Still getting healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan (knee) should be closer to 100 percent for Week 2 after playing a limited role against Miami in the season opener, Travis Haney of The Athletic reports.

Morgan totaled only 14 snaps in Week 1, even though he was able to practice in full both Thursday and Friday. The team was likely keeping close tabs on his workload after he underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in the offseason, which held him off the field for much of the preseason. If he is able to return to a more prominent role, he will enhance the Titans' pass rush, as he has totaled 16.5 sacks across the past two seasons.
