Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/21/14 3:00pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker has passed his concussion test and is good to go in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Here's a fantasy TE ray of light here amidst all the other grim news at the position (Dwayne Allen, Jordan Reed, Jordan Cameron and -- possibly -- Julius Thomas).
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/20/14 6:44pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Things are looking up for Walker after missed the Week 11 Monday night loss to the Steelers. He was also scheduled to visit a doctor Thursday, so expect the official word on his status to come out Friday at the latest.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/19/14 6:10pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker remains in the concussion protocol, and he must pass a doctor's test in order to play in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Walker took part in a light practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. He leads the team with 512 yards on 38 catches this year, and he's tied for the team lead with four touchdowns.
Huddle Up: It's a good sign to see Walker out on the field Wednesday, but see if he can carry the momentum through the rest of the week.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/17/14 3:12pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) still needs to pass a concussion test before he is cleared to play in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Walker is a game-time decision. Hopefully fantasy owners made other arrangements for a tight end this week and didn't wait on Walker. Even if he plays, Walker isn't a great option in Tennessee's struggling offense.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/17/14 7:59pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) is inactive for the team's Week 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: As expected, the Titans' receiving yards leader will be out tonight and miss his first game of the season. It's a big dropoff down to Chase Coffman, who has 2 catches for 18 yards this season, and a big loss for rookie QB Zach Mettenberger, who is making his third career start.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/15/14 12:37am ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) did not particiapte in practice Friday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Walker has not practiced all week and has to be considered a longshot to play Monday night against the Steelers. Get your backup plan in order now.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/15/14 6:13pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) was limited in practice Saturday, Nov. 15, and is questionable for Monday night's game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Signs are pointing to Walker playing against Pittsburgh. However, the fact that he's questionable and the game is on Monday night makes Walker too risky. Owners should look for another tight end option this week.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/13/14 4:30pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: It was the second straight missed practice for Walker, and prepare to be without the TE this weekend.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 11/12/14 9:56am ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger needs to get the ball out of his hand faster and check down quicker, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: The rookie has been OK but certainly not great so far, completing 45-of-73 passes for 495 yards, 3 TDs and 3 picks in a two starts and a cameo relief appearance back in Week 4. He's also been sacked 7 times and a lost a fumble and falls in the large group of Titans offensive players who show flashes of potential but are not worthy of starts in the majority of fantasy leagues on a weekly basis.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 11/12/14 4:13pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: Walker, who was injured in the Week 10 loss to the Ravens, is in the league protocol, but it's suspected that he'll wind up missing Monday night's game with the Steelers. In the least, it's something for his fantasy owners to monitor the rest of the week.
Bishop Sankey - RBPosted 11/11/14 5:59pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey currently ranks fifth among rookie running backs this year with 360 yards,. Still, he's averaging 3.9 yards per carry, and he has just one carry longer than 20 yards in 92 chances. He had 38 yards on his first nine carries in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens, but produced just 20 yards on his final eight carries. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said the offensive line needs to do a better job of opening up holes for the rookie running back. The team is choosing to use RB Leon Washington in third down situations. "I think Bishop will still get a chance to protect and to catch passes on first and second down,' Whisenhunt said. 'But one of the things you try to be consistent with is the protection and working together with those things on third down."
Huddle Up: The opportunity as been there for Sankey with 13 or more touches in his last four games, but his high rushing water mark is 61 yards this season and he still only has one TD. He's belongs on keeper and dynasty-league rosters but he just hasn't produced enough to be used in most 10- or 12-team leagues.
Dexter McCluster - RBPosted 11/10/14 7:55pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster suffered a knee bruise Sunday and will be monitored throughout the week, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: Because of the injury, McCluster didn't wind up with a touch in Sunday's game, but then again, that wasn't a dramatic departure from his previous six contests where he averaged only four touches a game. Still, if you're rostering McCluster in a super-deep league, see what he can do in practice this week.
Bishop Sankey - RBPosted 11/6/14 12:21am ET
Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey carried 43 times for 152 yards, a 3.5-yard average, when RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) was inactive for two games and limited to two snaps in a third outing. In games Sankey shared the load with Greene, the rookie Sankey averaged 4.7 yards per carry.
Huddle Up: Sankey is still the Titans primary back even with Greene healthy again. Sankey is a flex play this week against the Titans.
Shonn Greene - RBPosted 11/6/14 10:38am ET
Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene has seen few carries with the team working out of three-wide personnel sets. The Titans have rushed the ball 184 times this season, with 92 carries in three-wide sets. Greene has been the ball carrier just seven times in those 92 plays. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Wednesday, Nov. 5, that he hopes the team is running well out of base sets, which will create more chances for Greene.
Huddle Up: Because who wouldn't want more chances for a guy who hasn't topped 3.3 yards per carry in a game since Week 2? Any carries Green gets take directly from the development (and fantasy plate) of Bishop Sankey, setting the franchise back even further. But yay, more unproductive carries for Shonn Greene!
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 10/26/14 8:43pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger turned the ball over twice (one interception, one fumble lost) in his first career start in Week 8 against the Houston Texans, but he also threw for 299 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Mettenberger did OK for his first start and he did try to get the ball down the field more. It will be a learning process but Mettenberger will hopefully provide more big plays for the Titans receivers as the year goes on.
Shonn Greene - RBPosted 10/24/14 6:13pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 24, and is listed as probable for Week 8.
Huddle Up: Not good news for Bishop Sankey owners as the veteran will return after a 2-game absence and cut into the rookie's workload.
Jake Locker - QBPosted 10/23/14 2:48pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) will return to the starting quarterback job when he is healthy, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. The team has decided to start QB Zach Mettenberger in Week 8 against the Houston Texans with Locker still recovering from his injury.
Huddle Up: Locker still has some life in Tennessee, but it's clear the team won't hesitate to move on from the QB, who on Sunday will miss his 18th start since the beginning of the 2012 season.
Shonn Greene - RBPosted 10/23/14 6:43pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: Greene has missed two straight games but could return to share in the carries with rookie Bishop Sankey on Sunday vs. the Titans. His status should be clearer following Friday's practice.
Jake Locker - QBPosted 10/22/14 6:03pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Another week, same story for Locker, and he'll have to do more in practice over the next couple days to avoid missing a third straight start.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 10/22/14 11:26pm ET
Updating a previous report, the Tennessee Titans plan to start QB Zach Mettenberger in Week 8 against the Houston Texans, a source familiar with the situation said Wednesday, Oct. 22. Indications are Mettenberger was informed of the decision Tuesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: The Titans are looking to the future and will give the rookie Mettenberger a shot to start. He has a strong arm but not much mobility. Jake Locker has been demoted in his contract year and is likely done in Tennessee. Mettenberger's first start is at home but he'll face potential league MVP J.J. Watt and the Texans. Jadeveon Clowney could also return on Sunday, so the Texans defense is an option this week if you need them.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 10/21/14 2:32pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) will start at quarterback when he's healthy, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. QB Charlie Whitehurst has filled in for Locker three times this year, but buzz continues to mount for QB Zach Mettenberger, the team's sixth-round draft pick this year. "We're trying to get him better as we go, knowing with the way it's gone for us at quarterback this year that's something that could happen at any time," Whisenhunt said. Whisenhunt doesn't sound concerned about playing Mettenberger too soon, either.
Huddle Up: Locker should be ready to return this week after missing the last 2 games, but it is Locker so his status is always in doubt. Whitehurst has either failed to throw for 200 yards or a TD in each of his three starts, so fantasy owners of Titans' pass-catchers really have nothing to lose if the team decides to go with the rookie.
Charlie Whitehurst - QBPosted 10/20/14 10:44am ET
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (hand) is expected to be back in Week 8. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Sunday, Oct. 19, that Locker's hand was still sore this week. QB Charlie Whitehurst started in his absence in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Whitehurst hasn't been particularly impressive in Locker's absence. The next time Locker goes down, don't be surprised if Zach Mettenberger gets the call instead. In fact, with Locker's contract expiring at the end of the season it would behoove the Titans to get a look at Mettenberger to determine if he's their future at the position.
Jake Locker - QBPosted 10/17/14 3:45pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) isn't expected to play against the Washington Redskins in Week 7 after being limited in practice all week, in the opinion of The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt. Charlie Whitehurst took first-team reps in practice Friday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Despite early-week hope that Locker would return for a juicy fantasy matchup against Washington, it's looking like Whitehurst will make his third start of the season.
Jake Locker - QBPosted 10/16/14 6:40pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (hand) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: The feeling is that Locker will return and play Sunday in a favorable matchup against Washington, but see what transpires in practice Friday.
Shonn Greene - RBPosted 10/16/14 8:01pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7, according to a source.
Huddle Up: As expected, Greene will miss a second straight game and clearing rookie Bishop Sankey for another full workload as the Tennessee starter.
Shonn Greene - RBPosted 10/15/14 3:54pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Oct. 15 and said he hopes he can return to practice next week and be ready to play Week 8.
Huddle Up: That means another start for rookie Bishop Sankey, who had a season-high 19 touches for 68 yards in last week's win over the Jaguars.
Jake Locker - QBPosted 10/14/14 12:38am ET
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker is still having problems with his bruised thumb and will need to make progress during the week if he wants a chance to play in Week 7, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: It's simply too hard to make any fantasy plans based around Locker, who's missed 16 starts and counting since the start of the 2012 season.
Charlie Whitehurst - QBPosted 10/10/14 4:13pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) is not expected to play in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he's officially listed as questionable on the injury report. He made some soft tosses Friday, but was listed as a non-participant in practice. QB Charlie Whitehurst is expected to make his second start of the year.
Huddle Up: Whitehurst, who started the team's Week 4 loss at Indy, is 25-of-44 for 371 yards, 3 TDs and interception and rushed for 39 yards on seven carries in two games this season so he doesn't represent a huge drop-off by any means. Locker, meanwhile, continues to be dogged by major health question marks as he's headed for his 16th missed start since the beginning of the 2012 season.
Shonn Greene - RBPosted 10/10/14 6:30pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) missed practice again Friday, Oct. 10, and is listed as doubtful for Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: It looks like Greene will miss his first game of the season. Dexter McCluster will be involved in picking up the slack, but certainly expect a season-high workload for rookie Bishop Sankey against a team giving up the third most fantasy points to opposing RBs.
Bishop Sankey - RBPosted 10/10/14 10:40pm ET
Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey is ready for a bigger role in the offense should RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) be unable to suit up in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Sankey is going to get the majority of work at RB for the Titans against Jacksonville. He's a strong flex play option.
