TE Erron Kinney - Tennessee Titans
|6-6, 272||Born: 7-28-1977||College: Florida||Drafted: Round 3, pick|
2005 Week 1 vs PIT (6 / 5 / 58 / 0 rec)
Kinney was the beneficiary of the Titans' new look offense, as he caught five passes for 58 yards. His first catch was an over the middle dump that went for 12 yards down to the Steelers one yard line, which set the stage for a touchdown pass to Ben Troupe. Kinney would later have receptions of 13, 13, 11 and nine yards. His big frame made an easy target for McNair, and a good safety option when the quarterback was under pressure.
2005 Week 2 vs BAL (2 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Kinney was used mainly to block on the day, but caught both passes thrown at him.
2005 Week 3 vs STL (7 / 7 / 64 / 0 rec)
Kinney caught all seven balls thrown to him, averaging just over nine yards per reception and keeping the chains moving throughout the day.
2005 Week 4 vs IND (8 / 7 / 42 / 0 rec)
Along with fellow TE Bo Scaife, Kinney was clearly the focal point of the Titans' offense. He lead the team in targets in the first half with three, and then again in the second half with five (tied with Scaife). The first and second receptions of the game went to Kinney. Kinney had a great game, but it should be noted that the Colts were playing deep, allowing the underneath passes to go almost unchallenged. Kinney was the go to receiver on the entire day.
2005 Week 5 vs HOU (5 / 4 / 27 / 0 rec)
Kinney grabbed all four passes aimed at him for 27 yards. He saw one red zone target.
2005 Week 6 vs CIN (5 / 4 / 52 / 0 rec)
Kinney did not catch a pass until the second half of the game. He finished with four catches for 52 yards including the longest reception of the game for Tennessee for 27 yards.
2005 Week 7 vs ARI (6 / 5 / 60 / 0 rec)
Kinney continued to be one of the leading receivers for the Titans, as he caught five passes for 60 yards. Kinney had at least one target in every quarter, and he was able to catch every target except for the last one. Three of his catches were for over ten yards.
2005 Week 8 vs OAK (7 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec)
Kinney looked to be the primary pass-catching tight end in this offense that fielded three tight end sets on a large percentage of plays in this game. He finished with five catches for 69 yards and had a 14 yard reception called back by penalty.
2005 Week 9 vs CLE (9 / 5 / 74 / 1 rec)
With the absence of so many of Steve McNair's favorite targets, Kinney was looked to quite often within critical situations in this game, and came up with the only Titans receiving touchdown on the day.
2005 Week 11 vs JAX (7 / 5 / 37 / 0 rec)
Kinney, along with Bennett, was the most targeted Titans' receiver. He was stopped inside the one yard line on one reception. He was McNair's outlet receiver on most of his targets.
2005 Week 12 vs SF (6 / 4 / 37 / 1 rec)
Kinney continued his consistent play, catching four balls for 37 yards, including a four yard touchdown. He continues to be a big factor in the Tennessee passing game.
2005 Week 13 vs IND (1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Kinney caught his only pass of the game for a four yard gain. He was injured on that play, and failed to return to the game. He was hit at or below the knees, and limped off the field. There was little speculation at the time on the injury.
2005 Week 16 vs MIA (2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Kinney was only targeted twice, ending the game with one reception for six yards.
2005 Week 17 vs JAX (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kinney had just one target late in the fourth quarter with no receptions.
