TE Delanie Walker still in concussion protocol-- Wed Nov 19 6:18 pm --
Light participant in practice Wednesday
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Titans tight end Delanie Walker still needs to pass a doctor's test to make it out of the NFL concussion protocol, but he was part of a light practice Wednesday. The Titans decided [last] Sunday not to have Walker undergo the final test with an independent doctor required to clear him before their Monday night game against the Steelers.(ESPN.com)
FF Today's Take:Walker is the Titans' leading receiver and is on track to take the final test of the NFL's concussion protocol. If he is cleared, Walker becomes a decent play for fantasy owners against the Eagles for Week 12. If Walker remains sidelined, backup Chase Coffman would find himself with an expanded role for the second straight week.
Titans TE Delanie Walker suffers concussion-- Mon Nov 10 9:30 am --
FF Today's Take:Walker leads the Titans in receiving with 512 yards and 4 TDs so it will be a significant loss if he's unable to get through the NFL's concussion protocol before Monday. The Titans play the Steelers on Monday night football in Week 11.
Delanie Walker (shoulder) and fellow tight end Taylor Thompson (knee) missed practice Wednesday. The potential loss of one or both of those tight ends prompted the Titans to re-sign tight end Chase Coffman on Monday. He was with the team in training camp and caught six preseason passes for 117 yards and a touchdown. Coffman understands that with both Walker and Thompson hurting, there is the chance he could see a decent amount of playing time right away.(The Tennessean)
FF Today's Take:Delanie Walker is going to be re-evaluated as the week progresses but the team's decision to add Chase Coffman to the active roster is cause for concern. Considering the amount of injuries at tight end last week, Walker's owners would be wise to look into a backup option sooner than later.
