Titans | Offense affected by Delanie Walker injury

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 10:28:50 -0800

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said the injury to TE Delanie Walker (concussion) early in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts affected the team's passing offense. "All of a sudden, they can put more attention on Kendall (Wright), on Nate (Washington), on our other receivers, which they couldn't have done before," Munchak said. TE Taylor Thompson played 72 of 75 offensive snaps as a result with TE Craig Stevens (concussion) also out. The status of Walker and Stevens remains up in the air for Week 14 against the Denver Broncos, and they'll have to pass the concussion tests in order to play this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Walker will be a strong play against Denver if he is able to suit up. Keep tabs on his status this week. Whether he plays will largely determine if Nate Washington will be playable as a flex, too.
