Well, it’s not a sprint. It’s a marathon. Now that Week 1 of the NFL season is in the books, there isn’t a single team that’s completely healthy. The questions are about whether or not guys can play through injury. Look no further than the Tennessee Titans if you need an example.

Once Friday’s injury report dropped, 11 names were on it. Here’s the skinny as the guys in two shades of blue travel to the Pacific Northwest for their second game versus an NFC West opponent in as many weeks.

Four well-known Tennessee Titans may not be ready to go in this one.

Here’s a list of the names that appeared on Friday’s version of Tennessee’s injury report: Bud Dupree (knee), A.J. Brown (knee), Anthony Firkser (knee), Harold Landry III (groin), David Long, Jr. (hamstring), Caleb Farley (shoulder), Chris Jackson (hamstring), Josh Reynolds (foot), Derick Roberson (groin), Jayon Brown (hamstring), Rashaan Evans (groin).

Of the names on that list, four are listed as questionable (outside linebacker Bud Dupree, tight end Anthony Firkser, and two linebackers, David Long, Jr. and Jayon Brown). Rookie Caleb Farley is the only Titan who’s officially been ruled out.

For those who are interested, the Seattle Seahawks have some interesting names on their injury report as well. Wide receiver Dee Eskridge is doubtful with a knee injury, as is running back Rashaad Penny (calf).

Trending. Bold predictions for the Titans and Seahawks game. light

11 other Hawks appear on their injury report: Gabe Jackson (rest day), Chris Carson (rest day), Bryan Mone (elbow), Duane Brown (rest), Penny Hart (concussion), Marquise Blair (knee), Sidney Jones IV (groin), D.J. Reed (foot), Damien Lewis (groin), Jamarco Jones (knee), and Poona Ford (shoulder).

We’ll have to wait and see if anything changes and if this has any bearing on the game. As of right now, it has to be said though. That decision to take Caleb Farley in the first round isn’t paying off so far.
