Friday’s injury report has arrived and there’s plenty of reason to be optimistic. For the first time in weeks, the Titans haven’t ruled anybody out according to head coach Mike Vrabel:

Most notably, Adoree Jackson is listed as questionable. This is the first time Jackson has been listed as “questionable” this season. Full disclosure: I still don’t expect Jackson to play this weekend, but it’s a great sign. This should be seen as a positive step towards getting him back on the field. He’s obviously made some good progress this week. I don’t expect the Titans to roll Jackson out for what should be an easy win, but perhaps he returns for next week’s primetime showdown with the Packers.
The rest of the injury report is as follows:

—A. Jackson, Saffold, Vaccaro, Swaim all questionable.
—No practice for@Saffold this wk, but played 2 games ago after no practice during wk.

Kenny Vaccaro continues to be limited with an “illness” and is officially listed as questionable. Vaccaro has been dealing with this unknown illness for about a week now. It’s the same designation that forced him to miss last week’s game. Amani Hooker would start in his place should Vaccaro have to miss his second straight contest.
Rodger Saffold’s status is also in doubt after missing every single practice this week with a toe injury. He’s listed as questionable. Saffold played two weeks ago despite not practicing. It’s possible that he’s able to play. If he can’t, I imagine that Aaron Brewer would start in his place. Giving Saffold a day off wouldn’t be a bad idea at some point.
Tight end Geoff Swaim is also questionable with an ankle injury. Kristian Fulton has no injury designation whatsoever. That means he’ll be returning to action for the first time in over a month.
The Titans take on the Lions this Sunday.
