The Tennessee Titans were given quite a scare on Saturday night when two of their youngest and most promising players went down with what appeared to be serious injures. Receiver Kendall Wright was having a big night vs. the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night, notching four catches for 44 yards before he injured his knee while running a route in the first half. The Titans initially feared that the injury could be of the season-ending ACL tear, but it turned out to just be a sprain.

As for outside linebacker Akeem Ayers also left the 27-19 loss to the Bengals with an ankle injury. He made his way to the sideline, but he was carted to the locker room, and Titans Head Coach Mike Munchak later revealed the injury appeared to be a bruise, and that he expects both Ayers and Wright on be on the field when the team opens the regular-season against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

 

There is no timeline for Houston Texans running back Arian Foster to come off the active/PUP list, and it’s unclear as to when he’ll be back at practice. Foster is recovering from an offseason calf injury. After missing all of camp as a result of calf and back injuries, it was thought he could return this week, even as soon as Monday.

But Texans Head Coach Gary Kubiak said Sunday that doctors informed him that Foster needs a few more days off before he’s going to be ready to join his teammates at practice.
