Palmer was carted off with a leg injury during Monday's practice, and the issue has proven to be severe enough to cost him the remainder of 2018. The team signed Brandon Chubb on Tuesday to add some depth at the position.
Palmer was carted off the practice field with an unspecified leg injury Monday, Erik Bacharach of the Tennessean reports.
Palmer was reportedly unable to place any weight on his left leg. The 28-year-old is the latest member of the Titans linebacking corps to suffer an injury, with Brian Orakpo and rookie Rashaan Evans having been sidelined for the past few weeks. Palmer saw most of his snaps on special teams last year, and he'd been battling for a reserve position in training camp. Until more information about the injury is released, Palmer should be considered questionable.
Palmer (ankle) practiced Wednesday without limitations, Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News reports.
Barring any setbacks, Palmer is in line to play Sunday against the Bengals. Regardless, he hasn't played significant defensive snaps since 2015, so the fifth-year pro should remain off fantasy rosters.
Palmer doesn't log many defensive snaps behind Avery Williamson and Wesley Woodyard, two linebacker studs. Therefore, he mainly leaves behind special teams snaps, which could be handled by Jayon Brown for the time being.
Palmer is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens due to an ankle injury, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.
The injury prevented Palmer from practicing in any capacity Thursday or Friday. A reserve linebacker for the Titans, Palmer won't generate interest in IDP settings even if he's able to shake off the ankle issue prior to Sunday's contest.
