Titans TE Delanie Walker expected to miss the rest of the season

The Tennessee Titans fell short in the season opener 27-20 against the Miami Dolphins. However, things have shifted toward the injuries that occurred during the game.

Among those was Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker. He suffered a serious ankle injury that has drawn much concern from the team. Those fears were realized with him being diagnosed with a dislocated ankle and an associated fracture that should effectively end his 2018 season, according to Ian Rapoport of The NFL Network.

Since joining the Titans, Walker has been one of the most productive tight ends in the league. Walker is coming off another highly productive season. Last year, he led the team with both 74 catches and 807 receiving yards in addition to three touchdowns. This marked his fourth straight year with at least 60 receptions in each season while recording more than 800 receiving yards.

The loss of Walker takes away the Titans’ most dependable receiving option as it shifts the focus over to Corey Davis and Tajae Sharpe pick up the slack. Meanwhile, it may see them depending more on their running game led by Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis.

There are also injuries to quarterback Marcus Mariota and offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, both possibly out of action for an extended period of time. Mariota suffered an elbow injury on a hit during a running play that caused him to be pulled out of the game. Lewan is dealing with a concussion that knocked him out Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.
