DeMarco Murray scored three touchdowns in goal-to-go situations, demonstrating why Fowler isn't called upon much in short-yardage situations. The fullback has just two touches this season.
Searcy sustained a groin injury at some point during Sunday's win over the Bengals, but the injury doesn't appear to have been serious. Searcy looks to be on track to play in Thursday's game against the Steelers.
All three of Casey's sacks this season have come in the past five games. His ability to generate inside pressure on the quarterback and demand double teams is key to freeing up lanes for Tennessee's outside pass rushers, so Casey's contributions often go beyond the box score.
Riley got the call up from the practice squad after Chance Warmack (finger) was placed on IR. The 2015 undrafted free agent spent last season on IR after suffering an ankle injury in August, ending his rookie season hardly before it get started. Riley has played both cornerback and safety in the Titans' defense but figures to contribute the most in special teams this season.
Dodd hasn't suited up since Week 3 against the Seahawks, when he played just 21 total snaps and made one solo tackle. With starting outside linebacker Derrick Morgan (abdomen) sitting out of practice Wednesday, a healthy Dodd could be in store for a more significant role Sunday against the Browns if Morgan is unable to play.
Jackson has received at least one touch on offense in three consecutive weeks, and he's been effective with 55 yards on five carries over that span. He was matched up with fellow USC rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster for much of the night, holding him to just four catches for 47 yards. Jackson's defensive game is improving every week, and his explosiveness with the ball in his hands is already elite.
Sunday's total doubled Williamson's previous season high of seven tackles, but most of this increase is attributed to assisted tackles, so it may not be sustainable. Regardless, the 25-year-old remains on pace for his third consecutive 100-tackle season.
Fluellen continues to sit a distant third on the running back depth chart behind DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry. Neither Murray nor Henry were able to get anything going, totaling 31 and seven yards on the ground, respectively.
This was just another day at the office for Woodyard, who has at least eight combined tackles in all but one game this season. The dependable veteran has also thrown in two sacks and is capable of more, considering he's topped 5.0 twice in his career.
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 was able to play in two games this season. He recorded one solo tackle while playing most of his snaps on special teams.
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.
Jones is eager to showcase why he deserves his starting role, but he's also very aware that the season is a long ways ahead and anything can happen between now and then.
"I'm happy to go into the (OTAs) as a starter, but I know that nothing is set in stone and I know there's plenty of competition for that job," said Jones. "So now I'm just trying to make the most of my opportunity."
Jones, a fourth-round pick last season, played sparingly in the beginning of his rookie year -- appearing in just four of the team's first 13 games. He improved toward the end of the season and got his first start during the last game of the year against the Colts. Jones said he wants to continue to improve and show he can be a force on the defensive line.
"Right now I'm trying to work a lot on my base technique, trying to shed blocks faster and make plays," Jones said. "I'm trying to go into the season and be a playmaker."
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.
Smith had the fantasy world buzzing with touchdowns in consecutive games during Weeks 2 and 3, but he hasn't found paydirt since or topped 30 yards in his career. While the 2017 third-rounder's value will be limited as long as starting tight end Delanie Walker's healthy, Smith's combination of athleticism and blocking prowess suggests the Florida International product has a bright future ahead of him.
The second-year defensive tackle has been relegated to the practice squad and looks to battle for an activation in 2017.
Davis finished second on the team in targets to Delanie Walker (nine), but his receiving yardage total was only good for fifth. While the rookie showed tremendous body control on a 15-yard sideline catch to set up a Marcus Mariota rushing touchdown in the first quarter, Mariota's erratic day through the air prevented Davis from making any more exciting plays. It's clear the potential is there, and the No. 5 overall pick could still end up being a difference maker down the stretch if he and Mariota can get on the same page.
Two plays after having a 59-yard touchdown pass to Delanie Walker erased on an offensive pass interference penalty, Cassel had a strip-sack fumble returned for a 38-yard Miami touchdown. He failed to get Tennessee's wide receivers involved early, throwing 10 of his 12 first-half completions to tight ends or running backs as his team went into the break trailing 10-3. While he erased that deficit with an 11-yard touchdown to tight end Phillip Supernaw in the third quarter, Cassel was unable to produce any more points the rest of the way. It's clear the Titans need Marcus Mariota to come back from his hamstring strain as quickly as possible, as the 35-year-old Cassel doesn't have much left in the tank.
Supernaw's 11-yard score was the first of his career. The blocking specialist remains a distant third behind Delanie Walker and Jonnu Smith on the tight end depth chart, which makes sense considering the 27-year-old Supernaw has never topped four catches or 62 yards in a season.
The well-traveled Jennings has only appeared in four career games despite having spent time in Cleveland, Chicago and with the Jets. He's projects to serve as a last-ditch offensive effort at receiver Sunday, so it's wise to keep him off your radars for now.
The catch was Weems' first of the season. Even with his team beat up at the wide receiver position, Weems is unlikely to see more than a handful of offensive snaps while playing primarily on special teams.
Lewan was forced out of a loss to the Dolphins in Week 5 after reinjuring his knee, and has been considered day-to-day throughout the week. It looks like the team was just being cautious with their starting tackle, as he now appears on track to suit up Sunday barring any setbacks.
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.
Decker was given the opportunity to throw the ball on a 2nd-and-goal play from the seven-yard line, but wisely threw it away to avoid getting tackled in the backfield after Pittsburgh successfully sniffed out the trick play. The veteran wide receiver has still topped 50 yards only once this season.
Schwenke was released by the Colts during roster cuts but will remain in the AFC South as he joins the Titans to start the regular season. The 26-year-old offers the Titans a versatile backup who can play several different positions on the line. Last season he played in all 16 games, including three starts at left guard.
Barring any setbacks, Palmer is in line to play Sunday against the Bengals. Regardless, he hasn't played significant defensive snaps since 2015, so the fifth-year pro should remain off fantasy rosters.
Orakpo played 53 of 76 defensive snaps and notched two solo tackles, but head coach Mike Mularkey indicated the injury wasn't serious. The 31-year-old will have also some extra recovery time before the Week 12 matchup with the Colts due to the Thursday night game this 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.
After June surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot, Sharpe's preseason participation was delayed until Aug. 26, but he aggravated the injury during Thursday's exhibition finale. With his season over, his absence opens the door for Tre McBride and likely Harry Douglas (knee) to land on the 53-man roster.
Matthews got the Titans jump-started in the second half by catching a perfectly thrown deep post and deftly evading two defenders on his way to paydirt. It was the 28-year-old's longest touchdown of the campaign, while his receiving yardage total was a season high. It was also his second score in the last three games, but he still has a ways to go before approximating the nine end-zone trips he tallied last season. Matthews will look to continue building towards that goal in Week 12 against the vulnerable Colts secondary.
Smith has been dealing with a broken hand since early September but seems to be on track to play against the Seahawks on Sunday. The 24-year-old will likely return to his role of a reserve cornerback and special teams contributor if he is able to play.
A seventh-round selection in April's draft, Carraway was let go by the Titans in order to make room for quarterback Brandon Weeden on the active roster. The rookie linebacker was inactive for the first four games of the season.
Brown's head injury turned out to be just a minor issue as he immediately cleared through the league's concussion protocol, so he'll be eligible to resume his role as a depth linebacker and special teamer.
McCain was forced to the sideline earlier in the contest due to a minor knee injury, but was eventually able to return and even record an interception. He'll likely be good to go in Week 12 against the Bears, barring any setbacks.
Henry saw one less carry than backfield mate DeMarco Murray, but his total rushing touches were still his lowest since Week 5. The second-year tailback did average well north of 4.0 yards per tote for the second consecutive game, but he simply isn't getting enough opportunities to churn out significant fantasy production. Henry showed what he was capable of with volume that represented a full workload when he carried a season-high 19 times for 131 yards against the Colts back in Week 6, but he hasn't seen more than 13 totes in any subsequent contest. He'll look to up his numbers when he faces off with the suspect Indianapolis defense again in Week 12.
Walker's productive night brought his totals over the last four games to 24 receptions for 289 yards, easily his best stretch of the campaign. The 33-year-old boasts a double-digit YPC in each of those contests and has seen a robust 33 targets overall during that span. Walker projects to continue serving as one of Marcus Mariota's most trusted pass catchers for the balance of the campaign and could be in for another fantasy-friendly effort when he faces off with the vulnerable Colts' pass defense in Week 12.
Sims has not practiced at all this week after suffering a groin injury Monday, so his absence doesn't necessarily come as a surprise. Rookie cornerback Adoree Jackson is expected to get the start Sunday in Sims' absence.
This doesn't come as much of a surprise, considering Klug returned to practice this past week after suffering a minor groin injury. With his injury history, however, Klug will likely play limited snaps in Sunday's contest.
Tanney broke his foot in the preseason finale. Since he's run out of practice squad eligibility, the Titans were able to retain Tanney's rights by keeping him on IR. Thus, don't expect an injury settlement to be in the news anytime soon.
Walden gradually escalated his level of practice in each subsequent day this week, culminating in a full showing Friday. Thus, he's all systems go at present time.
Cyprien recorded seven tackles (four solo) in Week 1, but subsequently missed the next six weeks with a hamstring injury. He was quiet in his first two weeks back, but he appears to be fully recovered after Thursday's effective outing. The 27-year-old strong safety saw 67 defensive snaps (88.0 percent), which was the fourth highest total on the team.
Succop's performance was eerily similar to his outing from four days earlier, as both involved a make from 44 following a miss from 48. His second-quarter miss Thursday was blocked by T.J. Watt.
Mariota's second 300-yard passing effort of the season served fantasy owners well in one regard, but his play in a real-world football sense left plenty to be desired. His troubles began early, as he was intercepted by Mike Hilton at midfield on the Titans' third offensive play from scrimmage. After capping off the subsequent possession with a seven-yard rushing touchdown, Mariota was picked off by Coty Sensabaugh at the Steelers' 48-yard line, and he proceeded to throw another pair of passes to the wrong-colored jerseys in the second half. Mariota did hit Rishard Matthews for a 75-yard touchdown pass for his one score through the air, while his passing yardage total equaled a season high. However, after posting his best rushing day of the season in Week 10, the 24-year-old disappointingly turned in his second-lowest total in that category this season. The third-year pro will look to put the blowout loss behind him in a much easier matchup versus the Colts in Week 12.
Morgan has now made a mark in the sack department in three consecutive weeks. He also tied a season-high in tackles with three (two solo), as sacks are his main source of production. The 28-year-old outside linebacker logged 64 snaps (84.0 percent) in the game.
The Stony Brook University product made one tackle in the two NFL appearances he made last season, and he was vying for a special teams job. Preparing to miss the entire season, it's no surprise Ochi was untouched on waivers and sent to injured reserve.
Even with Marcus Mariota (hamstring) considered day-to-day after avoiding a serious injury in Sunday's loss to Houston, the Titans will still add insurance at the quarterback position in Weeden. The 33-year-old was most recently released by the Texans prior to the start of the regular season and will likely serve as Matt Cassel's backup this weekend in Miami should Mariota be ruled out.
Spain practiced in full all week and appears ready to suit up for Thursday's matchup with the Steelers.
Wyatt was let go in order to clear up room for recently promoted receiver Darius Jennings. Given his youth, there's a possibility another team will take a flyer on the 22-year-old.
The first day of free agency had been quiet for the Titans prior to the shrewd signing of Ryan, a 26-year-old corner who led the Patriots in tackles in 2016. In addition to being a sure tackler, Ryan has shown strong cover skills, racking up 25 pass breakups and six interceptions over the past two seasons. He figures to immediately earn a starting role in the Titans' secondary.
King would likely have been waived by the Chiefs anyway, and the Titans likely won't lose anything if King doesn't make the team, so this move makes sense for both sides.
Murray was thoroughly stymied on the ground but provided some measure of redemption through the air. The former Pro Bowler's numbers are down across the board this season, and he now has two games with no better than 2.1 yards per carry over his last three contests. He's only been over 4.0 yards per carry on three occasions this season, which came in Weeks 3-5. While he's averaged nearly three catches per game, it hasn't been enough to make up for the shortfall from a yardage standpoint, while his five total touchdowns are a relatively modest figure as well. Factor in an increasingly larger timeshare with Derrick Henry in the backfield, and Murray's overall fantasy stock has taken a notable tumble in all formats. He'll look to bounce back versus a suspect Colts defense in Week 12.
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.
Coach Mike Mularkey did a good job of keeping all his weapons involved, as 11 different players registered either a carry or a reception. Outside of a 61-yard effort with a touchdown Week 6 against the Colts, Taylor is yet to top 50 receiving yards or get into the end zone in any other game this season.
