There’s only so much news and analysis that we can disseminate to the readers on TitanSized. There are always noteworthy tidbits/nuggets of information about the Titans that don’t make it into our posts but should be noted. This is why we try to bring those bits of information at the end of the week in this article.
Here’s what you may have missed.
- J.J. Watt won’t play against the Titans this week or this season
- Delanie Walker may or may not play this week
- Kendall Wright will finally be back on the field this week
- Da’Norris Searcy and Cody Riggs won’t play Sunday
- The Titans have lost eight of the last 10 games against the Texans
- Remember when we passed on Mike Zimmer for head coach? Good times
- Marcus Mariota has still never faced the Texans
- DeMarco Murray is PFF’s fourth-best running back through weeks
Some thoughts on these notes.

Watt being out is a beneficial for the Titans offensive line, but he hadn’t been even close to himself for the first three games. Don’t expect the Texans defensive line to just be a non-factor now that he’s gone. They’re still talented and can still dominate.
If last week wasn’t clear enough, this offense needs Walker on the field in the worst way. There were no mismatches to exploit last week and Walker is always a mismatch for the defense. Getting Walker, along with Wright, back would be huge for the passing offense. Wright and Walker are both relatively fast for their respective positions and can get open with ease. They are sorely needed, especially in a tough matchup like this.
Searcy and Riggs being out means an already suspect secondary gets thinner. Daimion Stafford will fill in for Searcy and rookie Kevin Byard will be asked to do more. Riggs being out means more of Brice McCain and Antwon Blake (sigh). I really wish the Titans would just give LeShaun Sims and Kalan Reed snaps. They can’t be any worse than what we’re trotting out right now, and it would give them much needed experience.
I wanted Mike Zimmer when he was a legitimate possibility for us, but, of course, the Titans decided that Ken Whisenhunt was the better fit and then followed him with Mike Mularkey (one of the losingest coaches in NFL history). I like the direction that we’re headed with Jon Robinson as GM, but it just wouldn’t be surprising to me if we either keep Mularkey through next year or just botch the next coaching hire. History repeats itself, but I hope I’m wrong!
