As the final week of training camp and preseason winds down, the Tennessee Titans start to evaluate their roster size. But it wouldn’t be exiting without a NFL injury report. Names will need to be shifted around to complete the roster this season.
There are eight players that will definitely not be playing this coming Thursday against the New Orleans Saints. Kenny Britt of course did come off the PUP list last night and as of today is on the active roster. However he will not see any snaps in the final preseason game.
In the cornerback position Terrence Wheatley is out with a hamstring injury, as well Ryan Mouton with a concussion. Mike Otto, a tackle on the team is out with a finger and knee injury. Head coach Mike Munchak did not mention any kind of knee surgery but did mention the pins in Otto’s hand.
“Once he gets the pin out of his band, and I guess at that point, then we’ll see how he can handle the pain of it, and how he can cover it up and protect him.”
Defensive end Leger Douzable has a shoulder injury and defensive tackles Sen’Derrick Marks and Jurrell Casey will both sit out, Marks for his knee and Casey having some problems with his elbow.
Defensive end Dave Ball will be sitting with a concussion.
There are a few other players that have injuries but their status still remains uncertain for Thursday’s game. Linebacker Zac Diles did not practice Monday, and guard Leroy Harris seems to have just been given the day off, he will most likely play.
Players on the Injured Reserve list include center/guard Eugene Amano, wide receiver Marc Mariani, and linebackers Gerald McRath and Alex Watkins. Rookie safety Markelle Martin is the only player on the PUP list.
