Thursday Injury Report: Titans getting healthier

Thursday’s injury reports have been released. All details are below.

Titans

DID NOT PRACTICE —

  • A.J. Brown (Knee)
  • Derick Roberson (Illness)
  • Johnathan Joseph (Calf/Illness)

LIMITED PARTICIPANT —

  • Malcolm Butler (Quad)
  • Chris Jackson (Hamstring)

FULL PARTICIPANT —

  • Vic Beasley (Knee)
  • Jamil Douglas (Hand)
  • Darrynton Evans (Hamstring)
  • Dennis Kelly (Illness)
  • Jonnu Smith (Ankle)

THOUGHTS

Good news and bad news. The bad news is A.J. Brown does not appear close to returning, at least not this week. That could change if he’s able to get on the field Friday, but chances are he’s not going to play in Minnesota.

The good news is Jonnu Smith is fine and everyone else is on track to play Sunday. Butler and Jackson are trending upward with limited practices on Thursday, while Smith and Kelly returned to full participation. Joseph downgrading to DNP due to illness is mildly concerning, but as long as he and Roberson can get over their illnesses by Sunday, it doesn’t look like their other injuries will keep them out.

Beasley and Evans could finally be set to make their Titans debuts. Tomorrow’s final report will give us a little bit of clarity, but we’ll really have to wait and see who’s active on Sunday.

Vikings

DID NOT PRACTICE —

  • Cameron Dantzler (Rib)
  • Troy Dye (Foot)
  • Mike Hughes (Neck)
  • Kris Boyd (Hamstring)

LIMITED PARTICIPANT —

  • Riley Reiff (Ankle)
  • Mike Boone (Concussion)

FULL PARTICIPANT —

  • None

THOUGHTS

Unlike the Titans, the Vikings don’t seem to be getting any healthier. I mentioned Wednesday that starters Danielle Hunter, Anthony Barr, and Pat Elflein are on IR. On Thursday, Troy Dye, who was filling in for the injured Barr, was placed on IR himself.

Todd Davis is a veteran linebacker formerly with the Broncos who had gone unsigned thus far. He joins the Vikings with four days to get up to speed.

The Vikings defense ranks statistically as one of the worst in the league. Injuries are certainly not helping that.
