Douglas didn't record a reception in Saturday's 35-14, divisional-round loss to New England.
This performance was in line with expectations for Douglas, who recorded just one catch all season while serving as Tennessee's fifth wide receiver. After nine seasons between the Falcons and Titans, the 33-year-old free agent will look to latch on with a new team this offseason. There's no guarantee Douglas is even able to stay in the league, let alone contribute noteworthy numbers next season.
Douglas (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Since coming off injured reserve to make his season debut in Week 12, Douglas has played just 23 offensive snaps, with only one catch for eight yards to show for it. He'll be a healthy scratch for the second straight week and doesn't look like he'll be active the rest of the season unless one of the top four wideouts on the depth chart succumbs to an injury.
Douglas made an eight-yard catch on three targets in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Colts.
Douglas' return from IR coincided with a hamstring injury to Rishard Matthews, which is why the depth wideout saw some burn in this one. Even if Matthews remains sidelined moving forward, teammates Corey Davis, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor all offer more value at the wide receiver position than Douglas.
Douglas (knee) was officially activated of injured reserve Saturday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.
Douglas has spent the entire reason on IR, and does not expect to have much a role on the offense right away. The veteran figures to provide depth at receiver as well as offer experience to his fellow pass catchers. Look for him to suit up Sunday assuming he avoids any setbacks.
Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday that the team won't make a decision on activating Douglas (knee) from injured reserve until later in the week, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Douglas has been on IR all season and presumably won't have much of a role in Tennessee offense whenever he's deemed ready to play. He's been practicing this week, perhaps eyeing Sunday's game in Indianapolis for his first appearance of the season. The 33-year-old won't be any higher than fourth or fifth on the wideout depth chart.
Douglas (knee) took part in practice Monday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Douglas has been out all season with a knee injury that first surfaced in August, but his presence at practice suggests he could be one of the two players the Titans designate to return from injured reserve in 2017. The Titans would have up to 21 days to evaluate Douglas and determine if he's ready to contribute, with head coach Mike Mularkey suggesting Monday that the wideout may not even need the full three-week period. If Douglas is activated from IR, he would likely just serve in a depth role at wideout and see most of his snaps in the slot.
Douglas (knee) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports.
Douglas was placed on IR to make room for the signing of Eric Weems, who was originally among the team's final roster cuts. Because of the timing of the move, the Titans will have the opportunity to recall Douglas from IR and back onto the active roster this season if the wideout becomes healthy enough to return.
Douglas will not play in Sunday's preseason game against the Bears due to a knee injury, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
The exact specifics surrounding Douglas' knee injury are currently unknown, but it's likely that it's minor and the Titans are just taking precautionary measures with the veteran wideout. The team will likely have another update at the start of next week.
Douglas turned four targets into only one catch for six yards in Week 2 of preseason against the Panthers.
Douglas hauled in three balls for 49 yards in the preseason opener but struggled in this one while Tre McBride finished with a team-leading 73 receiving yards. Only one of the two is likely to survive final cuts given Tennessee's newfound receiving depth, so the soon-to-be 33-year-old Douglas can't afford another dud like this.
Douglas' roster spot doesn't appear to be guaranteed heading into this season, ESPN's Paul Kuharsky reports.
Douglas agreed to a $2 million pay cut last month, which preceded the Titans using two of their first three draft picks on wide receivers. Along with Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor, Tennessee's second pick, Adoree' Jackson can also line up on offense if needed, potentially making the 32-year-old Douglas more expendable. While Douglas' experience and veteran presence bodes well for him, his career-low production of 15 receptions for 210 yards and no touchdowns last season casts further doubt over his value. All told, Douglas could need a strong training camp or an injury to one of his fellow wideouts to make the team.
Douglas agreed to reduce his 2017 base salary from $3.75 million to $1.75 million, ESPN's Field Yates reports.
Douglas can make up some of the difference via incentives, but he probably won't get enough playing time to have a real shot at hitting those marks. He caught only 15 passes for 210 yards in 11 games last season, working as the No. 3/4 receiver in a run-heavy offense. In addition to being stuck behind Tajae Sharpe and Rishard Matthews on the wideout depth chart, the 32-year-old Douglas likely will have to compete with at least one draft pick for the No. 3 spot. The Titans presumably hope to enter Week 1 with Douglas as the No. 4/5 receiver.
Douglas was not targeted in Sunday's season finale against the Texans.
Douglas finishes the season with just 15 catches for 210 yards. The 32-year-old wide receiver is signed for one more year in Tennessee, but the Titans will likely part ways with him this offseason.
Douglas caught five of six targets for 48 yards in Saturday's 38-17 loss to Jacksonville.
Douglas tied Tajae Sharpe for the team lead in receiving yards while leading the way in receptions. He had four catches for 34 yards after backup quarterback Matt Cassel replaced injured starter Marcus Mariota (fibula), demonstrating a strong rapport with the veteran. Douglas' chemistry with Cassel raises the receiver's appeal for next week with Mariota done for the season.
Douglas caught one of two passes for 10 yards Sunday against Denver.
Douglas was the second-most productive Titans wide receiver in a game that saw Tennessee run the ball 42 times while completing only six passes. They'll likely get back to a more balanced approach moving forward, but the veteran likely won't benefit much given his limited role.
Douglas caught both of his targets for 60 yards Sunday in Chicago.
This was a season high in yardage for Douglas, who still hasn't caught more than two balls in a game this year. The 32-year-old veteran is yet to score a touchdown and seems unlikely to do so while slotting in behind Rishard Matthews, Tajae Sharpe and Kendall Wright on the wide receiver depth chart.
Douglas secured one of three targets for three yards Sunday in Indianapolis.
Douglas played just 12 snaps as the clear No. 4 wide receiver. Second-year quarterback Marcus Mariota is starting to make his receivers better, but Douglas doesn't see the field enough to benefit from Mariota's growth under center.
Douglas caught both of his targets for 48 yards Sunday in San Diego.
Andre Johnson's retirement has handed Douglas the No. 4 wide receiver role. It's nice that he's seeing the field again, but the veteran's value remains limited as long as he's stuck behind Rishard Matthews, Tajae Sharpe and Kendall Wright on the depth chart.
Douglas (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 5 tilt with the Dolphins, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.
Douglas ranks ahead of Marc Mariani as the Titans' fifth wideout, but because Mariani is guaranteed an active slot each week due to his standing as the team's return man, there's no room in the lineup for Douglas. The 31-year-old has caught just four passes for 41 yards this season and likely won't see many opportunities if the team's wideout corps remains relatively healthy the rest of the way.
Douglas is inactive Sunday against the Texans.
With Kendall Wright back in the Titans' wideout mix Sunday, Douglas is the odd man out on that front in Week 4.
Douglas caught two of four targets for 20 yards Sunday against the Raiders.
Douglas has been getting the majority of looks out of the slot with Kendall Wright (hamstring) out, but could see his playing time reduced soon if Wright is able to suit up. Even if Wright remains out in Week 4 against the Texans, Douglas will still trail Tajae Sharpe and Rishard Matthews on the depth chart in an offense that also utilizes running backs and tight ends in significant receiving roles.
