Searcy was considered day-to-day after suffering an ankle injury in Sunday's game against the Colts. However, the backup strong safety appears to have recovered from the issue and looks on track to play Sunday, barring any setbacks.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Williamson brought his season total to 92 tackles with his second-best performance of the campaign in that category. Tennessee's strong interior linebacker play was often overlooked, but the Titans very likely would have missed the playoffs if not for excellent performances from Williamson and Wesley Woodyard. Williamson's turned out to be quite the find in the fifth round of the 2014 draft, as he's registered 376 tackles in his first four NFL seasons.
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.
Woodyard didn't have his best game in the season finale, but the 31-year-old linebacker was able to raise his career-high tackles total to 124 and finishes his 10th NFL campaign just half a sack shy of his career-best 5.5. If Tennessee ends up making noise in the playoffs, Woodyard will likely be leading the charge on the defensive side of the ball.
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.
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.
It's a devastating development for Jones, who had been peaking with nine tackles and 3.5 sacks over the past two games before his abrupt departure Sunday. The absence of Jones will likely open up more snaps along the defensive line for Karl Klug, David King and Austin Johnson.
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 was carted off the field in the second half after having his right knee rolled up on, but the initial diagnosis could have been far worse. The 22-year-old is likely to undergo surgery in the next couple of weeks, and could be ready to go in as few a six weeks.
Woods' injury appears to be on the mild side, so it shouldn't wind up costing him too much time unless further damage is revealed. The second-year pro is reportedly having a good camp, so he could factor into the defensive line rotation more frequently in 2017 if healthy.
Davis led all Titans wide receivers in targets, catches and yards, but the position had minimal involvement with Tennessee relying primarily on the running game and tight end Delanie Walker to move the ball. The talented rookie's price in postseason formats remains low, so he could be worth a flier in the next round despite having failed to score a touchdown thus far in his NFL career. Davis should have had one in this game, but Marcus Mariota overthrew him right by the goal line.
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.
Though Supernaw is available Sunday, the Titans are dressing four tight ends for the contest, an indication the 27-year-old isn't fully healthy. With just four receptions on the season, Supernaw doesn't have much of a role in the passing game even in times of better health.
Jennings hasn't suited up for a NFL game since the 2015 season, when he played four games and snagged 14 receptions for 117 yards while also working as a kick returner. It's likely Jennings looks to make the 53-man roster as a special teams threat again.
Weems was originally credited with one yard on a 4th-and-1 fake punt, but a challenge by Cardinals coach Bruce Arians revealed that Weems failed to make the line to gain. The former explosive return man is on his last legs in the NFL and rarely touches the ball in any situation anymore.
An MRI exam Monday revealed the back injury Lewan suffered in last week's loss to the Cardinals was not considered serious. However, Thursday marked his return to the practice field. Look for him to take on his usual role in Week 15, barring any setbacks.
Without this settlement, Boykins would have had to wait until after the 2017 season to sign with another team. He's now officially free to sign with another team, and the undrafted rookie showed potential as a practice squad member when he led the Titans with five tackles against the Panthers in his second preseason game.
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 had just one touchdown all regular season, but the offseason addition stepped up when his team needed him most. His touchdown catch with 6:06 to play more than made up for an earlier egregious drop. The former Broncos and Jets receiver has plenty of experience against the New England team that Tennessee faces next week.
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 picked a good time to tie his season high in sacks. The 31-year-old pass rusher still has plenty of gas left in the tank, as his 7.0 sacks in the regular season represented his third consecutive campaign with at least that many since joining the Titans.
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 faded badly down the stretch, totaling just seven catches for 97 yards in his final four appearances after averaging more than four receptions and 60 yards per contest in his first 12 games played. With tight end Delanie Walker still playing a major role in this passing game and rookie first rounder Corey Davis establishing himself as quarterback Marcus Mariota's go-to wide receiver late in the year, it wouldn't be surprising to see Matthews' recent decline carry over into next season.
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.
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'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.
The 2016 second-rounder rushed for a career-high 156 yards and a TD on 23 carries, while catching both of his targets for 35 yards in last Saturday's 22-21 win over the Chiefs. Per ESPN's Cameron Wolfe, the Titans are inclined to use Henry "quite a bit Saturday to exploit some holes in the Patriots' run defense." Given how well Henry ran during wild-card weekend, that's a sound approach, though in turn we'd expect the New England coaching staff to craft its defensive game plan with containing Henry in mind.
The catch was Stocker's first of the season, so his fantasy value remains nonexistent. Even if starting tight end Delanie Walker were to get hurt in the playoffs, Stocker wouldn't have much of a role.
Walker was Marcus Mariota's go-to receiver in key situations when the quarterback wasn't getting things done with his feet. The veteran tight end likely doesn't have many playoff runs left in him at age 33, but he remains a key cog in an offense that often does just enough to win. Tennessee will have to upset the Patriots in Foxborough next week in order to advance.
Sims suffered a hamstring injury during Thursday's practice and had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams. It ends up the injury is season-ending, as Mularkey hinted at on Thursday. Brice McCain and Kalan Reed are the most likely candidates to replace Sims in the Titans secondary.
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.
Despite having not practiced at any point this week, Cyprien evidently convinced the Titans in pregame warmups that his back injury wasn't too much of a hindrance. He'll likely be in store for a full load of snaps as the Titans aim to strengthen their playoff hopes. Cyprien is coming off a Week 14 performance against the Cardinals in which he turned in 10 tackles and his first sack of the season.
Succop didn't get to show off his accurate leg in this lopsided defeat. The 31-year-old pending free agent's near-automatic performance from inside 50 yards should net him a strong salary for his position, as Succop set an NFL record this season with 56 consecutive makes on field-goal attempts under 50 yards.
The QB sustained the injury on a first-quarter run Saturday and the issue clearly had an impact on his ability to scramble, as well as avoid the Patriots' pass rush. Mariota, who was sacked eight times in the contest, ended up completing 22 of 37 passes for 254 yards and two TDs, while rushing four times for 37 yards. Mariota will now have the offseason to move past his current quad injury, as well as further distance himself from the hamstring, knee and shoulder woes that he contended with earlier in the 2017 campaign.
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.
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.
The torn ACL is arguably a worst-case scenario for Conklin and the Titans, and he is set to undergo surgery in the coming weeks. The 23-year-old will be a candidate for the Physically Unable to Perform once summer arrives, and his availability for the start of the 2018 season is in serious doubt.
Barring any setbacks, Reed will be ready for Saturday's wild-card game against the Chiefs. The second-year pro rarely plays on defense, but with CB Brice McCain battling a hamstring injury, Reed could see an increase in defensive opportunities.
The Titans' No. 3 quarterback, Weeden has dressed for just one game this season. He'll be inactive on future game days unless starter Marcus Mariota is nursing an injury heading into a given contest.
Spain has been dealing with a minor back injury since Week 17 and was held out of Wednesday's practice as a precaution. However, he returned in full fashion Thursday and is fully on track to play Saturday.
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.
Playing in just his second game of the season, Maxey saw a slight increase in snaps when Ricardo Mathews sustained an ankle injury that forced him out of the game. The tackle was the first of his NFL career.
King had been dealing with an ankle injury but appears to be healthy based on his latest game performance. The former Oklahoma Sooner is competing with Maurice Swain and Tanoh Kpassagnon (shin) to back up starter Allen Bailey.
The injury kept Murray out of the Titans' regular-season finale, as well as the team's two postseason contests, but the veteran back suggests that he could have returned to the field this coming weekend, had Tennessee advanced to the AFC championship game. On the heels of recording 1,287 rushing yards and 12 total touchdowns in 2016, while also catching 53 passes for 377 yards, Murray carried 184 times for 659 yards, while catching 39 passes 266 yards in 2017, en route to scoring seven times in 15 games. Murray's volume decreased this past season, while second-year power back Derrick Henry's increased. Looking ahead, Murray indicates that he hopes to return to the team to work in tandem with Henry in 2018, but noted "we'll see how things unfold and go from there." Murray is currently under contract with the Titans through the 2019 season, but the Tennessean points out that the running back's deal includes no further guaranteed money. With that in mind, it's not hard to imagine the Titans cutting Murray this offseason, unless his contract is restructured.
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.
Taylor's unremarkable performance in his final appearance of the season was par for the course in an underwhelming rookie campaign. He lost a battle for the slot receiver job to pending free agent Eric Decker this past offseason but shouldn't have much competition for that role next year with Tennessee unlikely to invest more draft capital into the wide receiver position after selecting Corey Davis and Taylor in the first and third rounds, respectively, of the 2017 NFL Draft.
