The Tennessee Titans will not activate WR Kevin Walter (back) from the Physically Unable to Perform list, meaning he'll miss the rest of the year.
Huddle Up: There's just not much -- if any -- room for Walter with Kenny Britt, Nate Washington, Kenny Britt, Damian Williams and rookie Justin Hunter filling out the Titans' WR corps this season.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said Tuesday, Nov. 12, that WR Kevin Walter (back) is unlikely to play this season, as issues following back surgery have hampered the veteran wide receiver.
Huddle Up: Walter wasn't expected to be much of a factor this year, and now due to the injury he won't play at all. At this juncture he may have played his last NFL game as well.

Tennessee Titans WR Kevin Walter (back) will begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Walter will miss at least the first 6 weeks of the season.
Huddle Up: Even if Walter is activated after Week 6, it's hard to envision him having much of a fantasy impact given the Titans' deep corps of WRs and the team's expected passing-game limitations.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said WR Kevin Walter (back) likely will start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Walter underwent back surgery late last month, but he said he is seeing gradual progress in his recovery.
Huddle Up: No surprise given it was a back procedure. Meanwhile, though, the Titans aren't hurting for WR depth with vets Kenny Britt and Nate Washington and recent high picks Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter topping the depth chart.

Tennessee Titans WR Kevin Walter is expected to start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list heading into training camp. He had a scope on his back after missing organized team activities in June. Indications are Walter could still take part in preseason games later in August after a complete recovery.
Huddle Up: The Titans have a plethora of wideouts in camp, so if Walter isn't able to get healthy soon he may miss out on his opportunity to not only carve out a role in the receiver rotation but to flat-out make the team.

The Tennessee Titans would like to carry five wide receivers, though six wouldn't be out of the question. If they keep five, WRs Kenny Britt, Justin Hunter, Nate Washington, Damian Williams and Kendall Wright are likely to be kept, although that would mean WRs Marc Mariani, Michael Preston and Kevin Walter would be on the outside looking in.
Huddle Up: That's a pretty solid receiving corps for the Titans even without Walter. Losing Mariani would mean Tennessee would have to find another return man, but clearly both Walter and Mariani are on the outside looking in for the regular receiver rotation and as such bring little to the fantasy table.

Tennessee Titans WR Kevin Walter missed all of minicamp with back soreness, but head coach Mike Munchak isn't too concerned about the veteran's readiness for training camp. "Just because we do so many things similar (to what Walter did with the Houston Texas), he understands so many things we're trying to accomplish as a team, a play-action team, a run the ball team. He'll be OK," Munchak said. "We already know what he can do, so he is probably one guy who can miss time. But he has already made an influence on our receivers by the way he handles things. He's a nice fit."
Huddle Up: Walter is looking to provide Jake Locker with a security blanket, but on a run-first team and in a passing game that also includes Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright, and Justin Hunter he'll be hard-pressed to make a fantasy impact.

Tennessee Titans WR Kevin Walter (back soreness) will not practice again until training camp begins, according to head coach Mike Munchak.
Huddle Up: It's likely more of just a precautionary measure at this point, but in any case, definitely don't be expecting a whole lot of the former Texan on his new squad which has a glut of WRs in Kenny Britt, Nate Washington, Damian Williams and recent high draft picks Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter for a team not expected to rank among the league leaders in passing attempts.

The Tennessee Titans signed WR Kevin Walter to a one-year veteran minimum contract that will pay $940,000 in 2013.
Huddle Up: Walter was the closest thing the Texans had to a wingman for Andre Johnson; he'll be a bit further down the pecking order in Tennessee, at least until Kenny Britt's next injury or arrest.
