Walker left practice on Thursday August 16 with what looked like a toe injury

Summary

Despite insistence that Delanie Walker would take an ancillary role in 2017, Tennessee's wide receivers fell flat and Walker was thrust into the spotlight of this passing attack once again. While many of the squad struggled with drops, the sure-handed Walker dropped only three passes out of 104 targets, scored 3 receiving touchdowns, and led the team with 807 yards. Walker is one of the oldest tight ends in the league and will be 34 before the start of the 2018 season. Yet tight ends often play longer than other positions and Walker has yet to look as if he has lost a step. The bigger question as to Walker's totals will be backup Jonnu Smith's readiness to become more involved in the offense. If Smith can play an expanded role, expect Walker's yardage totals to drop. If Smith still isn't ready for a bigger role and in a year in which the offense is expected to improve, Walker could conceivably match his yardage totals and improve his touchdown rate. Walker recently signed a two-year extension that puts him with the team through the 2020 season. (August 2)

Titans | Delanie Walker exits (Thu Aug 16, 11:53 AM) - Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (undisclosed) left practice Thursday, Aug. 16.

Our View: After you get through the obvious guys Travis Kelce, Rob Gronwkowski, and the like Walker is often a sneaky-effective tight end option. So this injury is a concern and one we will watch closely. Reports have updated that this is a toe injury, so it's hard to know how serious it is.
