Tennessee Titans: End of Week 3 Notes & Links
Bringing you the best bits of news or information about the Tennessee Titans that have circulated around the internet during the week.
Fresh off a beatdown of the Jacksonville Jaguars in their own home, the Tennessee Titans square off against an NFC powerhouse in the Seattle Seahawks in a midday game on Sunday. The Seahawks are struggling on offense and along their offensive line, but their defense is currently as good as it’s ever been.
In anticipation of a huge game like this one, there is plenty of news on both teams heading into the weekend. Here’s everything you might’ve missed leading up to the game.
- Seattle TE Jimmy Graham is expected to play
- Derrick Henry is going to get fed this weekend…
- Because DeMarco Murray is questionable with a hamstring injury
- The Seahawks are trying anything to fix their offensive line
- Taywan Taylor has speed to burn
- Corey Davis isn’t playing this week and we can’t stop crying
Despite practicing on just Friday of this week, Graham will reportedly be “fine” for Sunday’s game. Graham is dealing with knee and ankle injuries and has caught a mere four passes for a measly nine yards. He’s not even a threat at this point in time.

With Murray getting nagged by a prolonged hamstring tweak, Henry ran over and through the Jags defense in last week’s win. Henry will be relied upon once again this week and is line for a “significant workload”, according to ESPN Titans beat reporter Cameron Wolfe. Murray might still be active for this game, especially if his hamstring doesn’t tighten up again, but he can’t be counted on right now as he deals with the injury. It’s King Henry time.
Seattle’s offensive line is almost inarguably the worst unit in the league. In Week 1, they allowed Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Mike Daniels to control the entire game with pressure up the middle. In Week 2, they couldn’t slow down a 49ers defensive pass rush that allowed the Los Angeles Rams to score 41 points last night. Russell Wilson has been running for his life this season. Jurrell Casey, Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan are next on the ledger.
Through two and one-sixteenth of the 2017 NFL season, Titans rookie wide receiver has been the fastest recorded ball-carrier in the league. His 21.44 mph burst on his long 42-yard catch last week earned him the honors. With fellow rookie pass-catcher Corey Davis out this week, Taylor is going to play a bigger role than he has through the first two weeks. “Silent Grind” will be ready for it.
