Titans RT Jack Conklin (ACL) is questionable for Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Conklin should have a chance to debut this week after sitting out the past two games while continuing his rehab for a torn ACL. Tennessee's O line should be at close to 100 percent if Conklin suits up against Jacksonville. Taylor Lewan, who missed last week's game with a concussion, cleared the league's protocol on Friday.
Sep 21 - 2:38 PM

Derrick Henry (back) is expected to play in Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Henry was removed from Tennessee's injury report and was a full participant in Friday's practice. Even so, he's been out-snapped, out-targeted, and has received fewer carries than teammate Dion Lewis so far this season. Henry is merely an RB3/RB4 stuck in a terrible matchup in Week 3.
Sep 21 - 2:31 PM

Marcus Mariota (elbow) is questionable for Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Coach Mike Vrabel said Mariota's status is the "same" as last week. He'll reportedly decide on Mariota's availability for Sunday within the next 24 hours. No matter who starts under center, the Titans' offensive line is in store for immediate improvement with LT Taylor Lewan (concussion) cleared to play. Although he recorded a team-high target share from Gabbert in Week 2, Corey Davis ultimately needs Mariota at the helm to breakout.
Sep 21 - 2:16 PM

Titans LT Taylor Lewan (concussion) passed his final test and was moved out of protocol.

Lewan was upgraded to "full" participant in Thursday's practice, so passing his final test was the last step en route to playing. His presence will immediately help whomever starts under center for the Titans against the Jaguars in Week 3.
Sep 21 - 9:38 AM

Derrick Henry (back) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

There's been no indication Henry is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Jaguars. From both an opponent and game-flow standpoint, the matchup could not be more poor. Henry is a fringe RB3 for Week 3.
Sep 20 - 4:05 PM

Titans LT Taylor Lewan (concussion) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Lewan needs to pass one more doctor's appointment before gaining full clearance. That's usually a formality after a player gets a "full" tag. His presence will be a big boost against the Jaguars' ferocious defense.
Sep 20 - 3:21 PM

Marcus Mariota (elbow) practiced again on Thursday.

According to the assembled press, Mariota was throwing the ball with more velocity. Neither Mariota nor coach Mike Vrabel have inspired much confidence about his Week 3 status, but it's looking like there's a legitimate chance he takes the reins back from Blaine Gabbert. If he does, Mariota will be facing the worst possible matchup in the Jaguars.
Sep 20 - 3:08 PM

Titans LT Taylor Lewan (concussion) is practicing Thursday.

Lewan told reporters he has still not been cleared, but he was headed out to the practice field. After being limited on Wednesday, any work on Thursday suggests he has avoided a setback and is on track to be cleared by Sunday.
Sep 20 - 12:30 PM

Marcus Mariota said the nerve issue in his arm needs "time to settle down."

On Monday, coach Mike Vrabel said there were "still throws Mariota can't make," but the quarterback was able to practice on Wednesday and seems to be moving in the correct direction. "It’s really the whole hand, but the numbness and the tingliness is a couple fingers, the weakness is kind of the whole hand and that’s what I’ve been working on," Mariota said. "Honestly, I think it’s close." Mariota will likely come down to a game-time decision again this week, but he appears to have a much better shot to play.
Sep 20 - 9:35 AM

Titans LT Taylor Lewan (concussion) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's a step in the right direction after Lewan didn't practice last week. Barring setbacks, Lewan should return Sunday after missing only one game. It's a needed upgrade to an offensive line playing without RT Jack Conklin.
Sep 19 - 4:46 PM

Derrick Henry (back) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's a new injury, but the limited practice suggets it's not a Week 3 concern. With Tennessee's offensive line banged up, Henry has a shy-away matchup with Jacksonville.
Sep 19 - 4:38 PM

Marcus Mariota (elbow) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Mariota and Blaine Gabbert split the first-team reps in Wednesday's session, and coach Mike Vrabel said he'd continue to prepare both to play Sunday against the Jaguars. Neither would be a fantasy option whatsoever.
Sep 19 - 3:47 PM

Titans promoted RB Dalyn Dawkins from the practice squad.

CB Kenneth Durden has also been promoted. Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry both escaped Sunday's win healthy, so Dawkins' promotion isn't about issues at the top of the depth chart. An UDFA out of Colorado State, Dawkins played a three-down role for the Rams.
Sep 18 - 5:04 PM

Titans re-signed WR Nick Williams.

Williams probably would have made the team out of camp if not for a hamstring injury. He should help out on special teams. Tennessee waived TE Anthony Firkser and WR Cameron Batson in corresponding moves.
Sep 18 - 10:06 AM

Speaking Monday, Titans coach Mike Vrabel said Marcus Mariota's (elbow) status hasn't changed.

Per Vrabel, "there are still throws Mariota can't make." Mariota was active against the Texans but only on an emergency basis. Injuries have been a concern for Mariota each season of his four-year career. If he starts Week 3, it will be against the Jaguars' elite defense.
