The depth running back was plagued by injuries in 2018, and only carried the ball four times for 16 yards in seven games. Fluellen was placed on injured reserve Dec. 20 with a knee injury, but will likely be ready for training camp. Expect the Toledo product to have slim fantasy value in the Tennessee backfield, barring injuries, in 2019.
Fluellen (knee) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Fluellen missed the Titan's last five games and looks like he'll need a few more weeks before he can resume football activities, which is what led to his placement on IR. His move shouldn't impact the Titans' running back rotation much at all, as Fluellen had only seen six offensive snaps in the seven games he was healthy and active for.
Fluellen will miss his fifth straight game and hasn't practiced in the last two weeks. The 26-year-old will look towards Week 16 against the Redskins for a potential return, though there has yet to be any indication he's near a return. Jeremy McNichols will serve as the Titans' No. 3 running back in his absence.
Fluellen (knee) did not practice Wednesday, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.
Fluellen's knee injury has now reached a month in length. Even if the 26-year-old returns to practice later this week, it's tough to see a scenario in which he'd be of value for Sunday's contest. In regards to this week, things are looking bleak for the Toledo product.
