While Casey had an impressive tackle count Sunday, with an average of 3.7 tackles per game this season, he needs the added stat line to vault into fantasy relevance. The seventh-year pro has five sacks this season to help back it up, but he should be viewed as a risky option in Week 17 against a Jaguars offense that rarely fumbles the ball or allows sacks.
While his production in the running game was negligible, Lewis made up for it through the air. The veteran didn't have any catches in last week's preseason opener, but he did rush twice for eight yards. Lewis' role as a complement to starter Derrick Henry and as a pass-catching threat out of the backfield appears set heading into the regular season, providing him with particular appeal in PPR formats. He'll look to continue gearing up for the regular season in next Saturday night's "dress rehearsal" game against the Steelers.
The Northern Illinois product has yet to make his NFL debut since going undrafted in 2014. He'll join the Titans for their offseason program, but the tight end may need to stand out in those workouts in order to stick around through training camp.
In addition to starting all 16 games at cornerback and serving as Tennessee's kick and punt returner, the 2017 first-round pick played 12 snaps on offense as a rookie, taking five carries for 55 yards. The offseason signing of Malcolm Butler might push Jackson back to the nickelback role, which in turn would decrease his snap count and leave him with more energy to help on offense. Of course, the Titans may not have any real interest in the idea, considering they're already in good shape in the backfield with Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis. The 22-year-old was a contributor in all three phases at USC, but he focused on defense and the return game his final season, getting just nine offensive touches.
While Evans, who suffered the injury just under a week ago, is still being held out of practice, the fact that he is able to put in any work is a good sign for his recovery. It's unlikely he plays in Saturday's preseason game against the Buccaneers, so expect an update on his status to come afterwards when practice resumes.
With DeMarco Murray (knee) sidelined, Fluellen was the only Tennessee running back dressed besides Derrick Henry. Henry was able to carry the load, however, leaving Fluellen on the sidelines. Fluellen has one more year left on his deal with the Titans and will hope to once again end up on the right side of the roster bubble in 2018.
The nature of Woodyard's injury is unclear, but a serious issue would be devastating. His versatility on the Titans' defense is unmatched, as the 32-year-old racked up 124 tackles, five sacks and five pass breakups in 2017. If the injury continues to linger, expect Jayon Brown to log a hefty workload in Saturday's preseason game against Tampa Bay.
After a healthy week of practice, Bates was a late addition to the injury report Saturday. It looks like the team was just being cautious with his designation, as he is suiting up for Week 6. Look for him to resume his role providing depth at linebacker.
Wallace will be sidelined due to a shoulder aliment. The reserve linebacker has only played in four games this season so his absence on Sunday shouldn't factor into the defense's game plan.
Thompson was brought in along with former Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro to help fill the void left by starting strong safety Johnathan Cyprien, who was lost for the season with an ACL tear. An undrafted free agent in 2017, the Utah product was cut by the Patriots prior to the regular season, then worked on practice squads with the Bears and Seahawks throughout the season. Vaccaro figures to have the upper hand heading into competition, but Thompson will look to impress while in camp.
The last time Jones saw the field was Week 13 of the 2017 season when he tore his biceps, requiring surgery. Jones is in line to resume a starting role this year, looking to go beyond his stats from 2017 where he recorded 31 tackles, 19 solo tackles and 3.5 sacks.
The injury didn't result in Byard missing any time during the blowout loss, as he played 77 total snaps (73 on defense) and finished with a season-low two tackles to go with a pass breakup. With 53 tackles and a league-leading six interceptions on the campaign, Byard has emerged as top-flight IDP in the secondary. The early word regarding his health is encouraging, but Byard will likely need to practice in some capacity during the upcoming week in order for Mularkey and team doctors to sign off on the second-year player being available against Indianapolis.
Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur spent last season in Los Angeles, where the Rams led the NFL in usage of three-receiver formations. However, it won't come as any surprise if the Titans use two tight ends for their base offense, considering they don't have much proven talent at wide receiver but do have a promising No. 2 tight end in Smith. A third-round pick last year, Smith caught 18 of 30 targets for 157 yards and two touchdowns while playing 556 offensive snaps in 16 regular-season games. Despite suffering a torn MCL during the playoffs, he didn't seem to have any limitations during the offseason program. While his progress is worth keeping an eye on, Smith is unlikely to establish fantasy value unless Walker misses time with an injury.
The second-year speedster was targeted deep down the left sideline by Marcus Mariota on the Titans' first possession, but the two couldn't connect on the third-down pass. Davis generated a 34-375 line during his rookie 2017 season, but he stands to see a notable uptick in production if he can keep a hold of the No. 2 receiver role throughout the entirety of the season. Moreover, with Rishard Matthews still sidelined with an undisclosed injury that has no known recovery timetable, it's becoming increasingly conceivable that Davis could open the regular season as Tennessee's top wideout. He'll look to parlay what should be extended playing time next Saturday against the Steelers into some meaningful production ahead of the regular season.
Cunningham replaces Phillip Supernaw at the tight end position on Tennessee's 90-man roster and shouldn't have too much trouble getting up to speed after spending much of last season on the team's practice squad. However, he likely faces an uphill battle once again to secure a 53-man roster spot.
Although Hurst's tenure with Tennessee has been mostly filled with promotions and demotions, there's something to be said about the Titans' affinity toward him given their reluctance to fully let go. It's unlikely he'll have any major impact next season, if he's on the roster at all, but he could challenge his peers for a spot as a reserve option in the secondary.
Washington spent the bulk of the 2017 campaign on practice squads, recording stints with both the Texans and Titans. He now rejoins the Titans following Sunday's deal, though he'll have a tough time making the final roster.
Jennings hasn't played in a regular-season game since 2015, bouncing around the league on various rosters and practice squads the past three years. The 26-year-old journeyman may finally have his golden shot to stick on a 53-man roster, as the Titans had shaky depth at wide receiver even before Rishard Matthews' undisclosed injury became a major concern. Jennings likely will land near the bottom of the depth chart if he makes the team, but it isn't out of the question for him to make a push for the No. 3 or No. 4 spot if the Tennessee receiving corps continues to struggle with injuries.
Lewan's contract falls just short of the $84 million that Zack Martin received from the Cowboys, but the deal is also a year shorter in length. He will officially earn both the most ever for an offensive lineman in annual value, as well as the most guaranteed money -- $50 million. As a result, he'll protect the blind side for franchise quarterback Marcus Mariota for at least the next five seasons.
Marz was signed of the Titans' practice squad in late September but was an inactive in all six games for the Chargers. He was waived in order to make room for Jeff Cumberland and Denzel Perryman (ankle) on the active roster.
The signing signifies it's likely safe to assume Terrell has fully recovered from the finger surgery he underwent last December. He will battle for a depth spot in the secondary, with special teams play likely contributing to his chances of earning a spot on the 53-man roster.
Palmer was carted off with a leg injury during Monday's practice, and the issue has proven to be severe enough to cost him the remainder of 2018. The team signed Brandon Chubb on Tuesday to add some depth at the position.
Pamphile was a versatile lineman for the Buccaneers the past four seasons, logging 33 starts at guard and tackle, with capabilities of playing all five positions. He will have an opportunity to compete for a starting position or at least a temporary starter if Jack Conklin (knee) is not ready for the beginning of the regular season.
Orakpo skipped out on Saturday's practice due to a shoulder injury, but as coach Mike Vrabel already suggested, it doesn't look like the ailment is very serious. The Titans likely are being extra cautious with the veteran linebacker, and the expectation is that Orakpo will be ready to return next week.
Running back Demitrius Bronson, wide receiver Douglas McNeil, tight end RaShaun Allen, tackle Justin Renfrow, guards Nate Isles and Drew Nowak, defensive ends Ryan Robinson and Julius Warmsley, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, linebacker Mike Zimmer and safety Dion Bailey will look to compete for spots on the final 53-man roster in 2015.
With Matthews held out of practice since May and the Titans still not providing any details, it's more than fair to wonder if the veteran wideout will be ready for Week 1. Sharpe, Taywan Taylor, Michael Campanaro (undisclosed) and Darius Jennings have all seen work alongside Corey Davis in the first-team offense, with new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur exploring various combinations. Sharpe made the strongest impression of the bunch during Thursday's preseason opener in Green Bay, catching one pass for 20 yards on two targets. While a starting job may be up for grabs, it probably won't come with a lot of targets in an offense built around Davis, TE Delanie Walker and RBs Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis.
It's been nearly three months since an issue was first reported and the Titans still haven't provided any details on the location or severity of Matthews' injury. With no signs of an impending return, the team seems to be moving forward with Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor as the starting wide receivers. Tajae Sharpe, Michael Campanaro (undisclosed) and Darius Jennings are the top candidates for the No. 3 role.
Su'a-Filo has started 31 games for the Texans over the past two seasons. The 2014 second-round selection spent the past four seasons in Houston and is the second offensive lineman to sign with the Titans in the past week, the other being Kevin Pamphile.
Smith appeared in 15 games for the Titans last season, recording 15 tackles after playing in just four contests during his first two seasons as a pro. There's no word on the extent of his injury at this point, but he will obviously be sidelined for an extended period of time and could be a candidate to miss all of 2018. If that's the case, he would likely return in 2019 needing to battle for a job should the Titans elect to re-sign him.
Carraway last played in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Texans before being waived and settling back on the team's practice squad. He has been called back up in order to help provide depth at outside linebacker.
Brown apparently has been making all the right moves this offseason, but he still isn't guaranteed a regular role on defense. Wesley Woodyard, the team's leading tackler in 2017, has one starting job at inside linebacker locked down, leaving Brown to compete with first-round selection Rashaan Evans and sixth-year pro Will Compton (foot) for the other starting spot. The team could deploy a rotation, in which case Brown would likely get most of his snaps on passing downs, just as he did last season.
The second-year back saw limited action for the second straight week, matching his number of rushing touches from last week's opener against the Packers. Henry is slated for plenty of volume as the Titans' lead back during the coming season, so there's not much inclination on the part of head coach Mike Vrabel to overwork him during the exhibition slate. However, Henry should see an uptick in playing time during next Saturday night's "dress rehearsal" game against the Steelers in preparation for the regular-season opener.
Despite previous stints with the Rams and Chiefs, Shippen has yet to see a single game of NFL action since entering the league in 2016. He's merely a depth option for the time being, with an uphill battle to make the roster ahead.
A 2011 fourth-round pick, Stocker is a blocking specialist who caught 52 passes in 80 games over parts of seven seasons for the Buccaneers before they released him in November. The Titans quickly jumped on the opportunity to add a proven blocker behind Delanie Walker and Jonnu Smith, inking Stocker to a two-year contract in December that included the 2018 option. The 29-year-old had one reception in three games with Tennessee and shouldn't be expected to take on a greater role in the passing game during the upcoming campaign.
Logan played 15 games for the Chiefs last season, starting 12 times and recording 52 tackles. The 28-year-old will bolster the interior of a Tennessee defensive line that's led by Jurrell Casey, who recorded at least five sacks each of the past five seasons. The Titans ranked fourth in the NFL with 88.8 rushing yards allowed per game last year, and Logan should only help that cause moving forward.
The Titans were searching for an upgrade for their No. 2 quarterback spot after releasing Matt Cassel earlier in March. While not exactly reliable, Gabbert is at least closer to Marcus Mariota in terms of playing style, having run for 440 yards on 94 carries (4.7 average) in 19 appearances for the 49ers and Cardinals the past three seasons. The 2011 first-round pick went 2-3 in five starts for Arizona last year, completing 95 of 171 passes (55.6 percent) for 1,086 yards (6.4 per attempt), with six touchdowns, six interceptions, 23 sacks and seven fumbles (two lost). Gabbert may have to fend off Alex Tanney or another veteran in a competition for Tennessee's backup job.
Walker left Thursday's practice with an evident limp at the conclusion of a catch. The severity and nature of the injury are unknown, but the Titans will hold out their starting tight end in this exhibition. Expect Jonnu Smith to get a healthy dose of reps with the first-team offense during Walker's recovery.
The deal guarantees the guard $12 million after he impressed in a starting role with the Titans over the past two seasons. With The 28-year-old figures to have found a comfortable living in Nashville in the short-term. Per Pro Football Focus, Kline graded out as the No. 22 overall guard during the 2017 season, with the 28-year-old turning in his best work in pass protection.
Ryan and Byard, the two leaders of the Titans secondary, reportedly put together a workout program led by former Middle Tennessee State strength coach Jason Spray. While these types of get-togethers are extremely common for players nowadays, it's significant that Sims participated given that he ended the 2017 season on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. With no indication that Sims has suffered any sort of setback in his recovery, it's safe to say the third-year cornerback is at full health entering the start of the Titans' voluntary team workouts, which began Monday.
After signing with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent, Butler eventually carved out a key role in the Patriots' secondary, notably clinching the team's win over the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX with a last-minute pick. He'll slide into a starting role with Tennessee, where he'll play for former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel, who now coaches the Titans.
Caldwell was impressing Cleveland coaches through the start of training camp with his work as a defensive back, but he was still seen as a depth option in the secondary at best.
A tough break for the 28-year-old, who can now be crossed of IDP cheat sheets. With Cyprien -- who logged 57 tackles in 10 games with the Titans in 2017 -- now unavailable, Kendrick Lewis and Dane Cruikshank could be in the mix for added work at safety.
It was a career year for Succop in 2017, as the kicker made 35 of 42 field-goal attempts. He also set an NFL record by connecting on 56 straight field goals from inside the 50-yard line, which dates back to 2014. His 35 made field goals and 136 points were career highs, and he was also named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for September.
Mariota looked sharp despite the underwhelming cast of receivers around him, completing a 38-yard pass to Nick Williams before hitting Darius Jennings for a four-yard score. Expected to have more freedom under new head coach Mike Vrabel, the fourth-year quarterback out of Oregon looks primed for a bounce-back campaign after posting a disappointing 13:15 touchdown to interception ratio last season. His ability to lead the offense down the field without top two receivers Rishard Matthews (undisclosed) or Corey Davis (undisclosed) is certainly encouraging.
Compton mostly played on special teams for the Redskins during the first half of the 2017 campaign but was forced into a starting role after Mason Foster (shoulder) went down in Week 7. However, Compton only lasted a few games before getting injured himself, and he ultimately finished the season on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury. The linebacker didn't require surgery and said he felt close to fully recovered in mid-January, but this kind of injury can require a delicate recovery process and he may still be a ways off from receiving full medical clearance. In any case, Compton should be healthy by the time training camp rolls around in July. Considering the Titans let Avery Williamson walk in free agency, Jayon Brown seems to be his only competition for the starting job next to Wesley Woodyard.
Morgan finished the regular season with 7.5 sacks and picked up another one in a wild-card round win over the Chiefs, but the stout Patriots offensive line rendered the 29-year-old pass rusher useless. With 16.5 regular season sacks over the past two campaigns, Morgan projects to be an impact defender for the Titans in the final year of his contract next season.
Williams is entering his sixth professional season and spent the past three campaigns in the Atlanta organization, hauling in 25 receptions for 248 yards and two scores over that stretch. Most of that production came in 2015, as a concussion and his low standing on the depth chart have limited him to three regular-season appearances over the past two years. He'll vie for a depth role in Tennessee but faces a similarly blocked path to playing time.
This comes as no surprise with Conklin still working his way back from a torn ACL suffered in January. There is a good chance the right tackle sits out the entire preseason, and he could even begin the regular season on the PUP list to assure he returns to full strength.
Reed has played seven games in the last two seasons, logging a total of 20 defensive snaps. The rest of his time comes on special teams, and that will be the route Reed will need to take once he's healthy again.
Interest in Vaccaro began picking up, so the Titans decided to avoid potentially losing out on him by signing the veteran safety. He served as a reliable safety for the Saints during most of his five-year tenure there but is coming off a career-low 60-tackle season. Still, he should challenge for the starting job in Nashville with Johnathan Cyprien (knee) likely done for the season.
Gibson has bounced around with a few teams since entering the NFL in 2015 but has never made an active roster. Now with Tennessee, he'll look to secure a depth tackle and special teams role for the 2018 campaign.
Spain will remain in Tennessee after starting 33 games at left guard for the Titans over the past three seasons. The Titans also added Xavier Su'a-Filo and Kevin Pamphile this offseason, which will likely lead to a training camp battle for the starting left guard position come August.
Ryan, who originally injured his ankle in Week 15, has been able to play in each of the last two games. Coupled with the fact he was a full participant in Thursday's practice, there shouldn't be any concern over his impending availability.
Maxey was waived with an undisclosed injury Friday. He's likely stuck on IR through the end of the league year unless he agrees to an injury settlement.
Campanaro has been sidelined for about one week with an unknown injury, continuing a trend from four mostly injury-plagued seasons with the Ravens. While he's in the conversation for a depth wideout spot and work as a returner in Tennessee, he's not doing himself any favors by spending time in the trainers room.
This is the first report of King being sidelined for practice, and it's still unknown exactly what he injury he suffered in Green Bay on Thursday. Nevertheless, until the Titans provide more clarity on the defensive end's injury, consider him day-to-day.
Brinkley will return to being a reserve lineman in Tennessee, and he should be grateful that this injury didn't lead to his departure from the program.
Lewis apparently suffered an arm injury during last Wednesday's practice, but the veteran safety appears to have recovered. Now healthy, the 29-year-old should see starting snaps at the safety position with Jonathan Cyprien (knee) having been placed on injured reserve.
Taylor saw extensive playing time Saturday, making his touchdown catches in the first and third quarters. The second-year pro's first score capped a six-play, 75-yard first-quarter drive: Marcus Mariota found him on a screen pass that wound up going 47 yards, after Taylor did all the work by speeding up the right side of the field. He found paydirt on a second occasion when he secured a quick three-yard scoring pass from Blaine Gabbert on the Titans' first series of the third quarter. Taylor could see a considerable uptick in opportunity to open the season if Rishard Matthews (undisclosed) remains sidelined, but irrespective of the latter's status, he's poised to build on the 16-231-1 line he generated over 16 games as a rookie.
The circumstances surrounding Cruikshank's injury are unknown, but it can be safely assumed that the rookie suffered the ailment in Green Bay. Given that Cruikshank hasn't been at practice the last five days, it's seems like it could be somewhat severe. Consider him day-to-day until the Titans can provide an update on his health.
