Kendall Wright Tweaks Hamstring Again

Wright just can't put it all together.

The Tennessean-USA TODAY Sports

Kendall Wright returned to practice today, then promptly exited practice with another hamstring injury.

The Titans have been without the services of starting slot receiver Kendall Wright for nearly a month now. We thought we had that behind us, but apparently Wright re-injured his hamstring during Monday's session.

He will now miss the pre-season finale against the Dolphins.

Head coach Mike Mularkey said that Wright strained his hamstring again, but this time in a different area. Kendall said that he simply over-did it today.

Wright said, "I think I'll be all right, and I think I'll be able to play in the opener." The opener -- against the Minnesota Vikings -- happens in just 12 short days.

Keep in mind that this is a contract year for Kendall. He's a guy that has a chance to be a really nice piece on this offense, but he's yet to put it all together. Blame it on the coaching changes, injuries, quarterback changes -- whatever you want. Wright needs to put something together this season if he wants to be in demand this offseason.

The Titans need Wright on the field this season. He offers a dynamic that Rishard Matthews, Tajae Sharpe and Andre Johnson can't. Hopefully we see a lot of Wright going forward.
