Titans' Malcolm Butler: Another solid effort
Butler recorded four tackles and two passes defensed in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.
Butler was battling a quadriceps injury in the short week leading up to Thursday's game, though he did ultimately enter the contest without an injury designation. Coming off a performance against the Jets in which he tallied a victory-clinching interception, Butler recorded two passes defensed as an encore. He now has four pass breakups in his past four games, and nine for the season.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Derrick Morgan: Battles through knee injury
Morgan recorded four tackles in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.
Morgan was battling a knee injury during the short week leading up to Thursday's action, though he managed to take the field against Jacksonville. He's battled issues throughout the season -- a shoulder injury caused him to miss a month of action -- limiting his effectiveness. Regarded as one of the Titans' best pass rushers entering the season, he has just 0.5 sacks and 19 tackles.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Wesley Woodyard: Records seven tackles
Woodyard recorded seven tackles in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.
Woodyard tied for the team lead in tackles, though he didn't manage any other defensive statistics in Thursday's effort. He has now failed to record a sack in four consecutive games, but he's tallied a minimum of six tackles in that span.... See More ... See Less
Titans' MyCole Pruitt: Could see expanded role
Pruitt hauled in his lone target for nine yards in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.
Pruitt has recorded one catch on one target in each of the four games he has been active this season. Though the Titans' tight end corps remains crowded, Jonnu Smith's (knee) season-ending injury could open up a few more targets for Pruitt to close the season. There's little indication he'll be able to take advantage, however, as he has averaged just 9.2 yards per catch and recorded zero touchdowns in 32 career games.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Darius Jennings: Continues role as special teamer
Jennings was not targeted in the passing game but returned one kick for 29 yards in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.
Jennings battled a knee injury throughout the short week prior to Thursday's game, but maintained his role as a kick-return specialist. He's been a non-factor in the passing attack, hauling in only five catches for 55 yards for the season.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Corey Davis: Limited to three targets
Davis caught two of his three targets for 21 yards in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.
The risks of relying on Davis were highlighted in Thursday's win, as the Titans attempted only 24 passes. That led to a season-low three targets for Davis, and marked the fifth time this season that he has failed to surpass 35 yards receiving. The narrative of this performance could have been slightly different had Marcus Mariota delivered a catchable pass on an end-zone target midway through the fourth quarter, though Davis has relied on touchdowns to remain fantasy relevant throughout the season. He remains a volatile -- though usable -- option heading into a Week 15 matchup against the Giants.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Brian Orakpo: Suffers elbow injury
Orakpo sustained an elbow injury during Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars, Erik Bacharach of the Nashville Tennessean reports.
Orakpo exited Sunday's contest due to an elbow injury and did not return to the field. The extent of the veteran linebacker's injury remains undisclosed, so his participation will be worth monitoring when the Titans resume practicing.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Jack Conklin: Will miss multiple weeks
Conklin (knee) will remain sidelined for multiple weeks due to a knee injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Conklin sustained a knee injury during Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars severe enough to cause a multi-week absence. It's good news that the starting right tackle will not be required to undergo surgery, and Conklin is expected to return this season. Dennis Kelly is expected to slot into the starting lineup as long as Conklin remains sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Jonnu Smith: Done for season
Smith (knee) was diagnosed Friday with a season-ending MCL injury, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The report doesn't specify if a playoff run would change the outlook; it's within the realm of possibility Smith could be ready for the postseason, given the recovery timetable of 2-to-4 weeks that often accompanies MCL injuries. With Smith sidelined for at least the remainder of the regular season, Tennessee will turn to some combination of Anthony Firkser, Luke Stocker and MyCole Pruitt at tight end. Stocker led the group with 39 snaps in Sunday's 31-9 win over the Jaguars, but Firkser is far more likely to contribute in the passing game, boasting 16 catches for 201 yards and a touchdown on just 16 targets this year....

Titans' Jurrell Casey: Makes impact as pass rusher
Casey recorded six tackles and 1.5 sacks in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.
Casey hauled down Cody Kessler twice during the contest, with one of his sacks also resulting in a turnover. He continues to play a key role on the Titans' defensive unit, recording at least one sack in three consecutive games. His recent success has helped him to seven sacks on the campaign, his highest mark since 2015.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Dion Lewis: Clear second fiddle in win
Lewis rushed 10 times for 13 yards and brought in all five of his targets for 39 yards in the Titans' 30-9 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.
Lewis saw backfield mate Derrick Henry explode for 238 rushing yards Thursday, so he was essentially left with a handful of leftover carries and a solid amount of pass-catching work. The veteran back has failed to top 36 rushing yards in four consecutive contests, and he hasn't found paydirt on the ground since the opener. Henry's stellar effort Thursday would seemingly dampen Lewis' even further, but coach Mike Vrabel has been unpredictable in how he's divided the backfield workload this season. Lewis will look to improve his numbers against the Giants in a Week 15 interconference tilt.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Logan Ryan: Strong effort in victory
Ryan recorded seven tackles and a sack in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.
Ryan cemented the victory for the Titans, hauling down Cody Kessler on fourth down with 3:38 remaining in the game. He was an active member of the defensive unit yet again, tying for the team lead with seven tackles. He now has at least six tackles in four of his last five games, including two sacks....

Titans' Taywan Taylor: Paces pass catchers in win
Taylor brought in six of seven targets for 59 yards in the Titans' 30-9 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.
Taylor paced the Titans in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the night, although it was the running game and Derrick Henry that took center stage on Thursday. Taylor has provided reason for optimism with his play in his two games since returning from a foot injury, bringing in nine of 12 targets for 163 yards over that span. The speedy second-year wideout will look to maintain his momentum against the Giants in a Week 15 interconference showdown.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Kevin Byard: Hauls down quarterback
Byard recorded three tackles and a sack in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.
Byard recorded his first sack of the season when he brought down Cody Kessler, forcing the Jaguars to punt on their first offensive possession. He didn't add any defensive stats in coverage, though he does have two interceptions and four passes defensed for the year.... See More ... See Less
