Report: Delanie Walker out for the year

New, comments
NFL: Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Delanie Walker is out for the year with a “dislocated ankle and an associate fracture,” according to Ian Rapoport.

If you saw the injury you knew the best case scenario was that he would go on IR and return after a couple of months, so it really isn’t a surprise to see this report.

The Titans are in some trouble now. They don’t have a guy that come anywhere close to giving them what Delanie gave them as a receiver and a blocker. Jonnu Smith can be a serviceable pass catcher, and Luke Stocker is fine as a blocker, but the combination of those guys best attributes isn’t anywhere close to what Delanie is.

At the end of the day, the most important thing is Delanie’s health. My #thoughtsandprayers (but for real) go out to him. That’s a brutal injury that causes him to lose his entire season. I can’t imagine what he is going through right now.
