Titans-Vikings final Injury Report: Vic Beasley, Darrynton Evans set to debut this weekend

The final injury report ahead of the Titans at Vikings game has been released.

Titans

DID NOT PRACTICE —

  • A.J. Brown (Knee) — OUT

LIMITED PARTICIPANT —

  • Chris Jackson (Hamstring) — OUT
  • Derick Roberson (Illness)OUT

FULL PARTICIPANT —

  • Vic Beasley (Knee)
  • Jamil Douglas (Hand)
  • Darrynton Evans (Hamstring)
  • Dennis Kelly (Illness)
  • Jonnu Smith (Ankle)
  • Malcolm Butler (Quad)
  • Johnathan Joseph (Calf/Illness)

THOUGHTS

As expected, the Titans were able to get mostly healthy for this contest.

That said, star receiver A.J. Brown, rookie corner Chris Jackson, and promising second-year outside linebacker Derick Roberson have been ruled out. No other Titans carry an injury designation for this weekend’s game. Roberson worked up to a limited participation Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday, but he must not yet be healthy enough to make his season debut.

Speaking of season debuts, it looks like Evans and Beasley were able to avoid any setbacks in their recovery. Beasley actually made his first media appearance as a Titan on Friday morning, indicating that he is officially set to play this weekend. Butler and Joseph getting full practices in likely means that, whether or not they’re still dealing with nagging injuries, they’ll both give it a go on Sunday.

Vikings

DID NOT PRACTICE —

  • Cameron Dantzler (Rib) — OUT
  • Troy Dye (Foot) — IR
  • Mike Hughes (Neck) — OUT

LIMITED PARTICIPANT —

  • Riley Reiff (Ankle)
  • Kris Boyd (Hamstring) — QUESITONABLE

FULL PARTICIPANT —

  • Mike Boone (Concussion)QUESTIONABLE

THOUGHTS

With Dantzler and Hughes ruled out, the Vikings will be down to rookie Jeff Gladney, second-year (former seventh-round pick) Kris Boyd, and Holton Hill, or as Arif Hasan pointed out on our Friday morning preview podcast, it’s an all Texas cornerback trio with two Hook ‘Ems and Gladney from TCU.

The injury-depleted corner and linebacker group could give Derrick Henry an opportunity to get back on track, while Ryan Tannehill has a chance to keep his two-touchdown-game streak alive.
