As expected, Conklin will be sidelined for Week 1 as he continues to recover from a torn ACL. Conklin will have to start putting together full practices before he can even consider returning to the field.
Conklin (knee) is not expected to play in Sunday's season opener against the Dolphins, Travis Haney of The Athletic Nashville reports.
Conklin was limited in Wednesday's practice as he continues his recovery from a torn ACL, but Haney reported that it still may be a week or two before the lineman is back to full practice. Given he is still without a clear timetable, consider Conklin week-to-week for now.
Conklin (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
The promotion to the active roster doesn't guarantee Conklin will be available for Week 1, but the news is rather promising for the highly-touted lineman. With Conklin no longer on the PUP list, he'll consequently be able to return to game action before Week 6. Keep an eye on his progression over this week as he looks towards the prospect of Week 1 return.
Conklin (knee) has been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. "I am still rehabbing, but things are going well, no setbacks," Conklin told the Titans official site. "You don't want to come back too early and hurt it again. You want to make sure you are full health and ready to go."
Not all too surprising considering Conklin is still working his way back from a torn ACL he suffered in January. There is a good chance the lineman sits out the entirety of the preseason and could even begin the regular season on the PUP list in order to assure he returns to full strength.
Conklin (knee) could begin the regular season on the physically unable to perform list, Jason Wolfe of the Nashville Tennessean reports.
Conklin had surgery in January to repair a torn ACL in his left knee, an injury he suffered during the playoffs. Given that the procedure usually carries a nine-month recovery timeline, it's always been unlikely that Conklin would be available for the Titans' season opener Sept. 6 against the Dolphins. Placement on the regular-season PUP list would prevent the right tackle from playing in the first six games of the season.
