Titans' Dennis Kelly: Role back in question
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite re-signing with the Titans this offseason, Kelly will likely have to compete for the starting right tackle job with first-round pick Isaiah Wilson, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Kelly received a hefty three-year, $21 million contract to remain in Tennessee this offseason and was projected to be the starting right tackle after the departure of Jack Conklin. However, he may be shifted to a reserve role after the selection of Wilson, who should be a strong run blocker from the beginning of his career. A backup role would not be new for Kelly, as he has appeared in 88 games across eight seasons in the NFL but has started just 31 contests.

Titans' Dennis Kelly: Inactive for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Kelly has been sidelined ever since being forced out of Week 2 action with a viral infection. The Titans have remained relatively mum on Kelly's status, which has led to speculation. The hope is he'll be able to return to the mix within the coming weeks, but given his absence is approaching a month in length, growing suspicions about the prospects of a near-future return seem warranted.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly spent at least one night in the hospital as he's dealt with a viral issue, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Kelly started in place of Jack Conklin last week and figures to once again if he's able to play. It's unclear how recently he was hospitalized or what his current status with the illness is. If he's unable to suit up the team will be without its top three tackles against the potent pass rush of the Texans on Sunday.
