Titans vs. Chargers Week 7 inactives: Is Delanie Walker playing?
The Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Chargers have released their list of inactives for Week 7.
One of the bigger questions this week for the Tennessee Titans on the injury front was if tight end Delanie Walker was going to play.
Well, Tennessee has its tight end active for the Week 7 game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Walker was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle issue, however there was some concern he might not play after he didn’t practice on Friday.
That concern can be laid to rest now, although it’s possible the team limits his snaps like it has done in recent weeks.
The Titans’ 2019 first-round pick, Jeffery Simmons, will officially make his debut just eight months after suffering a torn ACL. Expect the big man to be on a snap count in this one as the team tries to ease him in.
Cameron Wake, who had missed the last two games, is back for the Week 7 game. He should provide a much-needed boost to Tennessee’s pass-rush.
Sharif Finch and Chris Milton were already ruled out on Friday, and Jayon Brown, who was listed as doubtful, will also sit out.
The Titans will deploy Wesley Woodyard in Brown’s spot. Derick Roberson was added as outside linebacker depth yesterday, but he is inactive with Wake playing.
There was some hope that Chargers left tackle Russell Okung might play this week, but the team didn’t activate him ahead of Sunday. Los Angeles will also be without key pieces of its defensive line, with Brandon Mebane, Justin Jones and Melvin Ingram all out.
