Paul Kuhuarsky was the first to report last night that Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright has a cracked bone in his right hand:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Kendall Wright has a cracked bone in his hand. It won&#39;t necessarily keep him from playing. Day to day with pain/ swelling. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Titans?src=hash">#Titans</a></p>&mdash; Paul Kuharsky (@PaulKuharskyNFL) <a href="https://twitter.com/PaulKuharskyNFL/status/540666165107109889">December 5, 2014</a></blockquote>

This, obviously, is pretty terrible news.  It is fairly important for a receiver to be able to use his hands.  I can't see how Wright would be able to have much of an impact on this week's game with a broken hand.

Of course you could also make the argument that having Kendall Wright out there with one hand is better than Derek Hagan or Kris Durham with both hands.

The good news is that Wright won't need surgery.  If he were to have surgery at this point, there is no way he would make it back this season.
