The Titans released Humphries (concussion) on Thursday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Signed to a four-year, $36 million contract during the 2019 offseason, Humphries played in 19 regular-season games for Tennessee, catching 60 of 82 targets for 602 yards and four touchdowns. He was a reliable slot receiver before a concussion wiped out the second half of his 2020 campaign, but he never had a chance to live up to the contract while playing in a run-heavy offense that ranked near the bottom of the league in usage of three-wide formations. Humphries will turn 28 in June, so he still has time to revive his career with a new team.
Humphries (concussion) could be released this offseason, according to Gentry Estes of The Tennessean.
Signed to a four-year, $36 million contract during the 2019 offseason, Humphries has averaged only 3.2 catches for 31.7 receiving yards in 19 regular-season games with the Titans. He made just one appearance after Week 8 in 2020, struggling with concussion symptoms throughout much of the season. The Titans will free up approximately $4.75 million in cap space if they trade or release the 27-year-old slot receiver this winter/spring.
Humphries' placement on injured reserve Tuesday is related to the concussion he suffered earlier this season, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com reports.
Humphries was sidelined for four games with the head injury before he was cleared to return to the lineup for Sunday's 41-35 loss to the Browns. While he wasn't known to have exited early in the contest due to an injury, he apparently was diagnosed with a recurrence of the concussion symptoms upon being evaluated after the contest. Humphries will now be sidelined for at least three games as a result of the setback, making him ineligible to suit up again for the Titans until Week 17 versus the Texans.
The Titans plan to place Humphries on injured reserve Tuesday due to an unspecified injury, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com reports.
After missing four straight games due to a concussion, Humphries returned to the lineup for last week's loss to the Browns, playing 36 percent of the offensive snaps in the contest and finishing with one reception for nine yards on four targets. The Titans didn't indicate that Humphries suffered a recurrence of concussion symptoms in the contest or a new injury, but additional details on his situation should emerge in the coming days. He'll have to miss at least the next three games while on IR, making him ineligible to play again until Week 17 against the Texans.
Humphries recorded one reception on four targets for nine yards in Week 13 against the Browns.
Humphries returned to game action after a four-game absence due to a concussion. He was on the field for only 36 percent of offensive snaps as the team has utilized more two-tight end formations, though he still managed four targets. Given that Ryan Tannehill took to the air 45 times against the Browns and Humphries still came up empty, it's unlikely that he'll see significant target volume in a Week 14 matchup against the Jaguars.
Humphries (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Browns, John Glennon of Broadway Sports Media reports.
Humphries practiced fully all week, and his lack of injury designation suggests he has passed the league's five-step concussion protocol. The slot receiver is all set for his first game action since sustaining the concussion back in Week 8.
Humphries (concussion) practiced fully Wednesday, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.
Humphries opened Week 12 as a full practice participant, only to see his activity level downgraded the next two days before he was ruled out ahead of Sunday's win over the Colts. The fact that he's back to full participation to begin Week 13 is a welcome sign, but the Titans still have yet to reveal whether he's cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. The slot man -- who has caught 22 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns in six games this season -- last played Week 8.
Humphries (concussion) won't play Sunday against the Colts, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.
With Humphries still out, Cameron Batson and Kalif Raymond will continue to see added opportunities in Tennessee's Week 12 passing attack behind top wide receivers A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.
Humphries (concussion) was noted as a limited participant on the Titans' estimated practice report Thursday, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.
Humphries has been forced to sit out three consecutive contests while navigating the NFL's concussion protocol, and he's seemingly not yet in the clear for Week 12, regressing from full to limited practice participation between Wednesday and Thursday. If the 27-year-old is ultimately unable to go for an approaching Sunday afternoon matchup against the Colts, Kalif Raymond would be elevated to the No. 3 slot in Tennessee's receiving corps.
Humphries (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.
The Titans haven't yet announced that Humphries has fully cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol, but his full participation in practice certainly represents significant progress. Humphries appears to have a solid chance to return from his three-game absence Sunday in Indianapolis.
Coach Mike Vrabel said that Humphries (concussion) will practice Wednesday before being re-evaluated afterward, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.
Humphries has missed three straight games while in the league's concussion protocol, so practicing in any capacity represents a tangible step in the right direction. The slot receiver will need to attain full medical clearance before returning to game action, so his chances of playing Sunday in Indianapolis remain murky.
Humphries (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens.
On the plus side, coach Mike Vrabel noted that Humphries is making progress in the concussion protocol and has been attending meetings. Humphries will thus target a possible return to action in Week 12, which sets the stage for Cameron Batson and Kalif Raymond to continue to see added opportunities behind A.J. Brown and Corey Davis this weekend.
Humphries (concussion) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.
Back-to-back absences suggest that Humphries is trending toward missing Sunday's game against the Ravens. If he remains sidelined this weekend, added Week 11 opportunities would be available for Cameron Batson and Kalif Raymond.
Humphries (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday.
Humphries has missed the Titans' last two games, and his absence from practice Wednesday isn't a good sign with regard to his chances of returning to action Sunday against the Ravens. If Humphries remains sidelined, added snaps would be available for Cameron Batson and Kalif Raymond.
Coach Mike Vrabel said Monday that Humphries is still in the concussion protocol, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Humphries couldn't suit up for last Thursday's loss to the Colts, and he still hasn't been cleared to retake the field. He'll need to garner full clearance from the league's five-step protocol in order to have any chance of playing in Baltimore on Sunday. Kalif Raymond and Cameron Batson will once again be in line for added work behind A.J. Brown and Corey Davis if Humphries misses another week.
Humphries (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Colts.
With Humphries still sidelined and now targeting a return to action Week 11 in Baltimore, Kalif Raymond and Cameron Batson are in line to see added work Thursday behind the team's top two wide receiver options, A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.
Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said Tuesday that Humphries remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
For the second straight day, Humphries looks set to go down as a non-participant on the injury report, which seemingly puts him on track to miss Thursday's game against the Colts. The Titans will wait and see if Humphries can make any progress at their final practice of the week Wednesday before an official decision on his Week 10 status is made.
Humphries (concussion) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report.
Humphries was knocked from the Titans' Week 8 loss at Cincinnati due to a concussion and hasn't practiced or played in the interim. Granted, that translates to just one game missed, but with no reps to kick off this week either, he hasn't made much, if any, progress through the protocol for head injuries. The Titans may very well rule Humphries out in advance of Thursday's contest against the Colts.
Coach Mike Vrabel said Friday that Humphries (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game against Chicago, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Humphrey will need to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before he's able to retake the field, leaving next week's Thursday night matchup against the Colts as his earliest possible return date. In the meantime, Kalif Raymond stands to slot in as the No. 3 wideout behind top options A.J. Brown (knee) and Corey Davis.
Humphries (concussion) wasn't spotted at practice Friday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
That doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Bears, with more clarity on Humphries' Week 9 status due upon the release of Friday's final injury report.
