Delanie Walker (ankle) sitting out minicamp

Delanie Walker (ankle) is not participating in Titans minicamp.

Fantasy Impact

Walker suffered a devastating ankle injury last season but looks like he'll be ready to go for Week 1 of 2019. He participated in 7-on-7 drills during OTAs and recently estimated that he was at 85% health. Jonnu Smith (MCL) is also sitting out minicamp.

Delanie Walker placed on IR

Tennessee Titans beat writer Cameron Wolfe is reporting the team has placed TE Delanie Walker (ankle) on the injured reserve list.

Fantasy Impact

With Walker now placed on the injured reserve list, his season is likely over. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Walker dislocated his ankle and is not expected to play again in 2018. It's time to fire up Jonnu Smith, who the Titans drafted 100th overall last season as Walker's heir-apparent. His day has come. In a Titans offense with heavy tight end-usage in the passing game. Plus, a below-average wide receiver corps, Smith could be an immediate impact for the Titans and his fantasy owners. He will be one of the hot waiver wire pickups of the young 2018 season.

Delanie Walker's season likely over with dislocated ankle, fracture

The Tennessee Titans may have lost their most trusted pass catcher as tight end Delanie Walker suffered a dislocated ankle and fracture during the Titans' 27-20 loss in Miami. According to Ian Rapoport, "his season is almost certainly over."

Fantasy Impact

Obviously a devastating blow for both the Titans and fantasy, as Walker was perennially an underrated player and consistent source of TE1 production. Sophomore Jonnu Smith will move into the starting lineup, with veteran Luke Stocker also likely to see a fair number of snaps.

Delanie Walker carted off with leg injury

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker was just carted off with what appears to be a leg injury. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, he was "put in an air cast, often indicating a fracture."

Fantasy Impact

While it is too soon to speculate, the cart and the air cast both indicate that this could be a serious injury. ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter added that the injury appears to be a serious ankle injury. Monitor Walker's status over the next several days, but the initial reports are pessimistic.

Delanie Walker is not on the Titan's injury report

Delanie Walker (undisclosed) does not appear on the Titans' Week 1 injury report, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy owners can feel confident now that Walker will be ready to go for Week 1. The veteran tight end has a good matchup against the Dolphins and fantasy owners will want to make sure to get Walker into their starting lineups.
