Tennessee Titans Week 5 Injury Report

It’s a huge issue right now with the Tennessee Titans as to why they just can’t keep their team healthy. That very well could be the reason as to why they have started this season 1-3. Hopefully today that record changes for the better with a victory against the Minnesota Vikings.

Here’s a look at today’s inactive players for the afternoon game in Minnesota:

Obviously Jake Locker will be out this afternoon, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he sits this coming Thursday too against the Pittsburg Steelers, I would adjust your fantasy rosters accordingly. He would hate to come back not at 100 percent and make the separation even worse than it already is.

Wide Receiver Kenny Britt has not practiced all week…again. He will more than likely sit out today too due to that tweeked ankle. But according to The Tennessean’s reporter Jim Wyatt, he is dressed all the way down to his cleats so we will have to see, he will be a game time decision.

Defensive end Scott Solomon will not play due to hamstring injury. Linebackers Patrick Bailey and Colin McCarthy were both listed on the Injury Report this week.

Bailey did not practice Wednesday or Thursday but was limited on Friday. McCarthy was limited Wednesday, did not practice Thursday due to soreness but was back at it Friday with limited contact. Both are listed as questionable however I would imagine McCarthy will see a few snaps in today’s game no problem.

The Titans sure could use some healthy athletes on their team. That very well could be the missing ingreadient to a winning record. To improve to 2-3 would be ideal. The Titans and Vikings kick off this afternoon at Mall of America field at 4:25 ET.
