Titans' Daren Bates: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates (shoulder) fully participated in Wednesday's practice, Turron Davenport of reports.

Apparently, Bates' limited participation in Tuesday's session was just part of managing his injury. He looks good to go for Saturday's Wild Card game at New England.

Titans' Daren Bates: Limited in practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates (shoulder) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, Turron Davenport of reports.

Bates put in three full practices and did not take an injury designation into Week 17's win over the Texans, but there has been no word whether the Titans are taking it easy with the 29-year-old or if perhaps he reinjured the shoulder. His playing 25 snaps between defense and special teams in the contest suggests it's probably the former, however. The Auburn product's practice participation the rest of the week should be telling.

Titans' Daren Bates: Turns in full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Bates returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday after missing the last two games with the injury. He should be back manning special teams Sunday against the Saints.

Titans' Daren Bates: Ruled out for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates (shoulder) is ruled out for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Texans, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Bates will miss a second consecutive contest due to his lingering shoulder injury. The 29-year-old's absence will be a blow to Tennessee on special teams.

Titans' Daren Bates: Will not play Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates (shoulder) has been declared out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Bates was unable to practice this week and will miss his first game of the year. The 29-year-old has played just six defensive snaps all season, so the Titans will miss him most on special teams.

Titans' Daren Bates: Misses Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates (shoulder) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday.

Bates exited Sunday's win over the Colts due to the shoulder injury and isn't ready to retake the field. The 29-year-old likely will need to return to practice in the next couple days to have a chance of suiting up Week 14.

Titans' Daren Bates: Gets hurt Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Colts, Turron Davenport of reports.

It's unclear how Bates picked up the injury, but he was forced to leave the game in the second quarter. As long as he's sidelined, look for David Long to be in line to see an uptick in depth reps at inside linebacker.

Titans' Daren Bates: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates (ankle) is not listed on the Titans' injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Falcons, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Bates was a non-participant at practice earlier in the week, but he logged a full workload Friday. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual role providing depth at inside linebacker.

Titans' Daren Bates: Dealing with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates didn't participate at Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury.

Bates played 26 snaps on special teams during last Thursday's loss to the Jaguars, and he's apparently still feeling the impact of an ankle injury. The 28-year-old will need to progress to a limited participant to have a chance of suiting up in Week 4.

Titans' Daren Bates: Active Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates (knee) is ready to go for Monday's contest against the Colts, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

After a healthy week of practice, Bates was a late addition to the injury report Saturday. It looks like the team was just being cautious with his designation, as he is suiting up for Week 6. Look for him to resume his role providing depth at linebacker.

Titans' Daren Bates: Questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Colts with a knee injury, Cameron Wolfe of reports.

Bates was a new addition to the injury report Friday and was limited the rest of the week. The 26-year-old has mostly been utilized on special teams with the Titans this season.

Titans' Daren Bates: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates (finger) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and is expected to be available for Sunday's matchup with the Raiders.

Bates has been praised for his special teams ability, and he played just 30 defensive snaps for the Raiders in 2016. He's expected to see more time on defense with the Titans, but nothing that should propel him into fantasy relevance.

Titans' Daren Bates: Nursing dislocated finger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates is nursing a dislocated finger, Terry McCormick of reports.

The injury is one that Bates may be able to play through depending on the severity of the dislocation. Although it doesn't look too serious at the moment, Bates' finger is something to keep an eye on moving forward.

Titans' Daren Bates: Signs contract with Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates signed a three-year, $6 million contract with the Titans on Friday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Bates played in all 16 games last season for the Raiders, becoming a staple of the special-teams unit in the process. Titans general manager Jon Robinson said of the newly acquired linebacker: "Bates is another fast, violent player in the kicking game. I like his intensity, like his instincts and his reckless abandon to throw himself in there to make a play." He recorded 12 tackles last year (eight solo).

Raiders' Daren Bates: Plays 28 special teams snaps Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates recorded one tackle during Oakland's 35-34 win over New Orleans on Sunday.

Bates functioned primarily as a special teams asset Sunday where he saw 28 snaps. It appears that the leg injury Bates suffered a few weeks back is no longer an issue.
