Finally, the Titans are getting healthy. It’s been a long time coming, with the injury bug visiting Nashville early and often throughout training camp. Today we’ll see the return of right tackle Jack Conklin, who will play in his first game since the playoff matchup with the Patriots last season.
Quarterback Marcus Mariota will start today and seems to at least be close to getting back to 100 percent. We’ll know pretty early on how healthy that nerve in his elbow is with how Matt Lafleur calls the offense today.
The only real news here is that Austin Davis will backup Mariota today as Gabbert has been ruled out.
For the Eagles, they’ll get a couple of big time weapons back. Alshon Jeffery will make his season debut today, giving Carson Wentz his No. 1 receiver back. Running back Jay Ajayi will also return to the lineup after missing a couple of weeks, but Darren Sproles and Corey Clement won’t be able to go today.
