Tennessee Titans: Week 13 vs. Houston Texans Injury Report

CLEVELAND, OH - OCTOBER 22: Rishard Matthews
CLEVELAND, OH - OCTOBER 22: Rishard Matthews /

With only a few weeks left in the season, the Tennessee Titans are looking to get healthy for a playoff push. Luckily, the injury report is fairly brief this week.

Rishard Matthews – Wide Receiver – Hamstring

There is definitely one thing that is true when it comes to the Tennessee Titans: They need to figure out how to keep a hamstring healthy. Rishard Matthews has fallen victim to the hamstring injury bug. This injury kept Matthews out of last week’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. All signs are pointing to Matthews playing on Sunday. The biggest sign pointing to his return is that Matthews is planning on wearing cleats that are a tribute to his former college teammate Colin Kaepernick this week, per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN. Meaning he plans on playing on Sunday. This news would not have come out if Matthews was not planning on playing. That is the first sign of good news. He also returned to a limited practice on Friday.

Da’Norris Searcy – Safety – Ankle

After having a long stint off the injury report, Searcy is back with an ankle injury. Maybe he was interested in making a return to the Titan Sized report because he missed us. Against the Colts last Sunday, Searcy suffered an ankle injury that kept him out of practice during the early part of the week. Luckily, Searcy was able to practice in full on Thursday and Friday. That is a great sign for the health of his ankle. Searcy will probably suit up on Sunday without a hitch.


A few other players are listed on the injury report with illnesses. That is the only real information out there about these players and their illnesses. DeMarco Murray and Brian Schwenke both have an illness that has kept them out of practice at some point this week. They probably will be active on Sunday because there is not a lot of information about the illnesses. Surely, if there was any doubt with either player’s health for the game, there would be more information out there. This was a light injury week, but that is always a good thing.
