Walker had to be carted off with a serious leg/ankle injury in Week 1

News you need to know

General News (Thu Nov 15): said he'd like to get healthy enough to return this season if the team makes the playoffs. Walker also noted he had two titanium rods inserted in his leg during surgery for his dislocated ankle.

Week 11: at Indianapolis Colts

All TE vs IND

FBG says: Good matchup. The Titans offense may still be one of the slowest-paced units in the league, but Marcus Mariota has looked much-improved to raise the boat of this mediocre passing offense. While he has only surpassed the 250-yard mark once, Mariota has looked much better in his last three outings as it appears he really was hampered by that throwing arm injury earlier in the season. His completion rate is up while the interceptions have come down, and Mariota has now thrown for multiple touchdowns in back to back games. He had not been throwing downfield very often until last week when Mariota completed six passes for 20 or more yards while finishing with 270 air yards--his second-most in a game this season. Nearly the entire passing offense continues to flow through Corey Davis and Dion Lewis, as both are getting solid volume especially with Tajae Sharpe and Taywan Taylor banged up. Davis had a massive game last week while Lewis was less involved, but Lewis had come off back-to-back outings with over 60 receiving yards. This passing offense is far from elite and remains rather unpredictable, but the needle is trending in the right direction with this week looking like a good opportunity for their success to continue in what could be a shootout. The Colts secondary had excelled in some soft matchups leading into last week, but Blake Bortles managed to rack up 320 passing yards as Colts defensive backs were on their heels for much of the game due to the Jaguars playing from behind. This secondary has some young talent, but they are still below average overall with some beatable cornerbacks in Pierre Desir and Nate Hairston. Hairston was out last week with an ankle injury but is practicing on a limited basis. If he does suit up, Hairston will certainly be a matchup to exploit for both Davis and Sharpe as he is giving up a catch rate of over 80 percent. Malik Hooker has played well at free safety, but the same can't be said for Clayton Geathers who has struggled at times. The Colts also do not have a particularly proficient pass rush, especially in recent weeks with just four sacks in their last five games. Marcus Mariota should be allotted plenty of time by his top-notch offensive line, meaning he most certainly will have a good shot at finding one of his top targets or turning on the jets for some rushing yards.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 1 vs MIA (7 / 4 / 52 / 0 rec)

Delanie Walker was targeted seven times, hauling in four receptions for 52 yards. He got off to a slow start though, with only eight of those yards coming from Marcus Mariota before yielding to Blaine Gabbert after injury. The big news here, however, is the gruesome injury Walker suffered late in this contest as he had to be carted off with only a couple minutes remaining in the game. Early reports indicate Walker suffered a dislocated ankle along with a likely fracture, which should sideline him for the remainder of this season.
