Titans' Taylor Lewan: Suspension made official
Lewan has been officially suspended the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's PED policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Lewan's appeal did not succeed in reducing the length of his suspension. The star left tackle will officially remain sidelined the first month of the regular season, during which time one of Dennis Kelly or Tyler Marz will likely slot into the starting lineup. Lewan's absence will be a notable loss for the Titans' offense through the first four contests.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Dalyn Dawkins: Still absent from practice
Dawkins (undisclosed) did not take the field for practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
After a 10-carry preseason opener, Dawkins departed practice early last Thursday and could be in line to miss a second straight preseason contest Sunday versus the Steelers. If that's the case, Dawkins would have just one more opportunity next Thursday against the Bears to prove he's worthy of a 53-man roster spot.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Derrick Henry: Could make preseason appearance
Henry (calf) looked good at Thursday's practice, giving him a shot to play in a preseason game against Pittsburgh on Saturday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Coach Mike Vrabel said the Titans are in rush to make a decision, still wanting to see how Henry responds the next couple days. The 25-year-old running back returned to practice earlier this week for the first time since suffering a calf strain at the beginning of training camp. Henry appears on track for Week 1, regardless of his preseason involvement.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Nate Davis: Limited participant Wednesday
Davis (undisclosed) participated in individual drills at Wednesday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Davis has been battling the undisclosed injury since the start of August, so his return to practice in any capacity is good news for his status. The rookie third-round pick is expected to work in a reserve role to start his rookie campaign.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Ryan Succop: Participates in practice
Succop (knee) participated in practice Wednesday for the first time since being activated from the PUP list earlier in the week, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Before being activated, Succop had already shown progress in his recovery from knee surgery by kicking lighter-weight footballs. He's now back to kicking regulation balls and relayed that he drilled a 45-yard field goal during Wednesday's session. Succop remains optimistic he'll be ready for game action in the Titans' Week 1 game against Cleveland.... See More ... See Less
Titans' David Fluellen: Undergoes knee surgerty
Fluellen (knee) underwent knee surgery but is hoping to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.
Fluellen had mysteriously been absent from practice since the team's first preseason game. Details of the procedure are sparse, yet it appears there's some optimism Fluellen will be ready for the team's Week 1 contest against the Browns. Prior to the injury, he was listed as the team's third-string back, though his absence will create more opportunity for the likes of Jeremy McNichols, Dalyn Dawkins and Akeem Hunt.... See More ...

Titans' Nigel Harris: Back on IR
Harris (undisclosed) reverted to Tennessee's injured reserve Tuesday after clearing waivers, per the league's official transactions page.
Harris will remain on IR for the entire season barring an injury settlement. The depth linebacker suited up for two games with the Titans in 2018, and also spent time on the team's practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Derrick Henry: Practices again Tuesday
Henry (calf) participated in Tuesday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
This is the second straight day Henry managed to practice after his lengthy absence with a left calf strain. It's unclear whether Henry upped his participation by much Tuesday, as videos showed the tailback just participating in indivudual drills, but it's still a good sign for Henry as he makes his way back to 100 percent....

Titans' Derrick Henry: Returns to practice
Henry (calf) returned to practice Monday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Per the report, Henry took part in the individual portion of Monday's practice, and we'll assume that he'll continue to up his participation as the week rolls along, in the absence of any setbacks. Henry will look to build off last season's strong finish, and assuming his health the physical back will head the Titans' ground attack in 2019, with Dion Lewis slated to reprise his role as the team's top change-of-pace option....

Titans' Ryan Succop: Removed from PUP
Succop (knee) was taken off the PUP list Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
It isn't clear if Succop will make a preseason appearance, but he should have enough time to get ready for Week 1. His return presumably leaves Austin Barnard without a spot on the 53-man roster beyond next week.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Jonnu Smith: Comes off PUP
Smith (knee) was taken off the PUP list Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Limited to side work throughout training camp, Smith passed a physical and now can return to practice. It isn't clear if he'll make an appearance in the preseason or be active for Week 1, but the decision to remove him from the PUP list suggests he's expected to play at some point in September. With Delanie Walker making a full recovery from his own season-ending injury, Smith's playing time mostly will be limited to multi-TE formations.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Adam Humphries: Misses exhibition with leg issue
Humphries (leg) didn't play in Saturday's preseason game against New England.
Humphries was removed from practice Wednesday and limited to stretching Thursday. The Titans can afford to take a cautious approach, as there isn't any doubt about Humphries handling slot work during the upcoming season. The real competition at wide receiver entails A.J. Brown, Taywan Taylor and Tajae Sharpe competing for the final top-three spot.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Marcus Mariota: Still the team's top QB
Mariota remains in line to be the Titans' Week 1 starter at QB, backed up by Ryan Tannehill, Joe Rexrode of the Athletic reports.
That's a notion also put forth by Erik Bacharach of the Tennessean. Mariota's perch atop the posted depth chart is not something we expected to discuss at this stage, but as John Glennon of the Athletic notes, there's been some recent speculation that a QB competition between Mariota and Ryan Tannehill could be brewing. Tannehill is one of the NFL's more qualified backups, but his presence doesn't seem to be a threat to the short-term job security of Tennessee's incumbent starter. The story could be quite different if Mariota struggles come September.... See More ... See Less
