Here we go with Thursday’s injury report. The Titans are not yet ruling anyone out ahead of Sunday’s game, but today’s report is a lengthy one.
A.J. Brown was a full participiant on Thursday. It likely means that Wednesday’s “limited participation” was nothing more than a regular maintendance day for the Titans’ No. 1 receiver.
Bud Dupree worked his way up from a “did not practice” on Wednesday to “limited participation” on Thursday. Barring a setback, it’s a good sign for his chances of playing on Sunday. The Titans are likely playing things safe with Dupree, who is still working back to full speed from a torn ACL.
In fellow pass rushing news, Harold Landry was a “full participant” after being limited on Wednesday. It’s good news, because the Titans are going to need Landry on Sunday. Russell Wilson represents a terrific challenge, and the Titans need players like Landry to play a great game on Sunday.
Linebacker David Long Jr. did not practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. His status for Sunday’s game is now trending in the wrong direction. Barring a miracle with his practice status on Friday, he will miss his second game in a row this weekend. That means more Rashaan Evans on third down. Great.
Rookie cornerback Caleb Farley did not practice on Thursday after being a “full participant” on Wednesday. It’s unclear whether or not Farley suffered an injury or if this is part of the plan to get him back to full strength following offseason back surgery.
Chris Jackson and Josh Reynolds appear set to make their 2021 debuts after missing last week’s game against the Cardinals. Both players practiced in full on Thursday, and it will be interesting to see how much they play against the Seahawks. Jackson is battling for reps in the slot with Elijah Molden, and Reynolds is vying for the WR3 spot with Chester Rogers. These are two position battles worth monitoring.
We’ll have to check back on Sunday afternoon for the inactive lists for both teams for a final update, but let’s see where things stand heading into the weekend…
