Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns release final Week 1 injury reports
The Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns released their final Week 1 injury reports on Friday.
The Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns released their final Week 1 injury reports on Friday, as the two teams prepare for battle in the regular season opener on Sunday.
There were three names listed on the Titans’ injury report: right guard Kevin Pamphile (knee, questionable), right tackle Jack Conklin (knee, will play) and outside linebacker Reggie Gilbert (knee, out).
Here’s a look at the Browns’ injury report, also.
Pamphile’s status is up in the air at the moment, as the offensive lineman was spotted limping into the locker room on Wednesday, and he missed both Thursday and Friday’s practice.
The Titans have two options to deploy at right guard if Pamphile can’t go: Jamil Douglas and Nate Davis.
The more likely scenario has Douglas starting, with Davis mixing in during the game. The rookie Davis missed a lot of practice time during the offseason with an unspecified injury, and head coach Mike Vrabel said Davis has some catching up to do.
It’s not at all surprising that Gilbert has been ruled out. The former Green Bay Packers outside linebacker has been recovering from a knee injury since before the Titans traded for him, and the expectation was that he’d be ready to go by Week 2 at the latest.
Gilbert didn’t practice on either Wednesday or Thursday, but he was spotted on a side field doing some work on Friday.
There was some concern about right tackle Jack Conklin earlier in the week, however he was able to practice the last two days and is good to go for Week 1.
Two of the bigger Titans names that dealt with injuries during the offseason were running back Derrick Henry and outside linebacker Harold Landry. Neither one is listed on the injury report, thus both will definitely play against the Browns.
Aside from Pamphile, the Titans should be mostly at full strength in Week 1.
