THE TITANS OFFICIAL INJURY REPORTS HAVE BEEN PRETTY MESSED UP...............WITH YESTERDAY'S OMISSION OF BUTLER...............NOW WE FIND OUT THAT JOSHUA KALU AND LARREL MUCHISON, JONNU SMITH, KENNY VACCARO, NICK WESTBROOK-IKHINE,WERE ALSO LEFT OFF................WHILE DARRYNTON EVANS, WHO WAS PLACED ON IR REMAINS ON TODAY'S INJURY REPORT.

MY WEDNESDAY COMMENTARIES ON THE PLAYERS LISTED ON THE OFFICIAL INJURY REPORT REMAIN UNCHANGED.

HATE TO SAY THIS, BUT I'M SUSPECTING THAT VRABEL IS "PLAYING AROUND" WITH THE INJURY REPORT AS TAUGHT HIM BY BELLICHICK.

CLOWNEY'S PROBLEM KEEPING HIM OUT OF PRACTICE TODAY IS NOT "ILLNESS," IT'S HIS KNEES.

DB JOSHUA KALU [SHOULDER]...........NEW...............SHOULDER SUBLUXATION...........WILL LIKELY BE QUESTIONABLE, MAY TRY TO PLAY THROUGH IT WITH A SHOULDER HARNESS.

DL LARREL MUCHISON [ANKLE]...........NEW...........FROM WHAT I AM HEARING, IT IS A HIGH ANKLE SPRAIN..............I DON'T EXPECT TO SEE HIM SUNDAY.............IF HE TRIES TO PLAY, EXPECT SIGNIFICANT COMPROMISED PERFORMANCE.

TE JONNU SMITH [QUAD].............NEW.............BEFORE THE COVID "REST" WEEK, HE WAS DEALING WITH AN ANKLE INJURY.............THE QUADRICEPS INJURY IS VERY LIKELY COMPENSATORY...............PROBABLY ENDS UP QUESTIONABLE FOR SUNDAY.

S KENNY VACCARO [HAMSTRING/CALF].............NEW.............COMBINATION OF HAMSTRING AND CALF INJURIES SHOULD MAKE HIM A NO GO FOR SUNDAY.

WR NICK WESTBROOK-IKHINE [HAMSTRING]..............NEW............WITH A SHORT WEEK, I CAN'T SEE HIM SEEING THE FIELD SUNDAY.

Titans injury designations sure look clean after their Friday practice. Did they hold it in a classroom?
FRIDAY WAS ESSENTIALLY A WALK-THROUGH.


AS I POSTED PREVIOUSLY, I AM CONVINCED THAT VRABEL IS BEING LESS THAN HONEST WITH THE INJURY REPORTING (JUST AS HE WAS THE TEAM COVID FIASCO). I EXPECT THOSE THAT DON'T MAKE IT TO THE INACTIVE LIST SUNDAY, WILL HAVE PROBLEMS WITH PERFORMANCE, AND/OR WILL PRODUCE A NUMBER OF SIGNIFICANT RE-INJURIES. ON A SHORT WEEK ESPECIALLY, TEAMS WILL SOMETIMES POST SOME OF THEIR PLAYERS AS DNP ON THEIR FIRST RETURN DAY OF PRACTICE WITH A "REST" DESIGNATION. HOWEVER, TOO MANY PLAYERS WERE LISTED DNP ON WEDNESDAY WITH SPECIFIC INJURY DESIGNATIONS, ESPECIALLY NEW INJURY DESIGNATIONS. ALL THIS SMELLS. WE'LL PROBABLY KNOW MORE SUNDAY.

NOTE THAT DARRYNTON EVANS IS THE THE INJURY REPORT AND HE WAS ALREADY PLACED ON IR.
