The Titans and Lions will play this weekend in the last home game of the season for Tennessee. Here’s where the teams stand after Wednesday’s practice…
|T Dennis Kelly (Knee)||DNP|
|G Rodger Saffold (Toe)||DNP|
|DT Jeffery Simmons (Knee)||DNP|
|TE Geoff Swaim (Ankle)||DNP|
|S Kenny Vaccaro (Illness)||DNP|
|WR A.J. Brown (Ankle)||Limited|
|CB Kristian Fulton (Knee)||Limited|
|CB Adoree Jackson (Knee)||Limited|
|C Ben Jones (Knee)||Limited|
It’s hard to know what to make of a Wednesday injury report for the Titans. Kelly, Saffold, Simmons, and Vaccaro are all working through various ailments. Vaccaro missed last week’s game and may be suffering from symptoms related to his recent concussion. Geoff Swaim is a new add to the DNP list this week.
Brown and Jones were limited, which is better than not practicing at all. Nice to see Kristian Fulton and Adoree Jackson on this list, though it appears they are both working back slowly, as they didn’t put in a full participation. I don’t anticipate Jackson being ready this week. Fulton may stand a better chance.
We’ll know a little more when we get Thursday’s report.
|LB/FB Jason Cabinda (Illness)||DNP|
|OL Tyrell Crosby (Ankle)||DNP|
|WR Kenny Golladay (Hip)||DNP|
|DL Da’Shawn Hand (Ankle)||DNP|
|C Frank Ragnow (Throat)||DNP|
|CB Darryl Roberts (Hip)||DNP|
|QB Matthew Stafford (Rib/Right Thumb)||DNP|
|DT John Penisini (Shoulder)||Limited|
|RB Adrian Peterson (Forearm)||Limited|
|S Tracy Walker (Shoulder)||Limited|
|DE Austin Bryant (Thigh)||Full|
|S C.J. Moore (Ankle)||Full|
The Lions injury list looks a bit like the Titans’ did earlier in the season: long.
The significant injuries to note are those to Matthew Stafford, Kenny Golladay, and Frank Ragnow. Stafford is dealing with extreme pain due to a rib cartilage injury and is not expected to play Sunday. Golladay hasn’t played in weeks, and if I were in his shoes, I wouldn’t return to the field for the Lions… ever (he’s set to be a free agent). Ragnow apparently has a fractured throat (!) and is also not expected to suit up for Sunday.
More to come later in the week when we have more information…
