The Tennessee Titans have placed tight end Delanie Walker on the active/physically unable to perform list today.
Walker sustained a knee injury during their early-June OTA’s where he brushed the injury off as a minor injury and resumed practicing a week later. I wonder if he regrets that decision now?
He later felt discomfort and the former San Francisco 49er underwent a knee scope in recent weeks. Walker is expected to miss a few weeks of camp, putting him behind the #2 spot for tight ends on the depth chart.
If the Tennessee Titans couldn’t get a healthy Jared Cook the ball, it’s very doubtful they’ll be able to get less than a 100% Delanie Walker. Which opens up a starting opportunity for those who are looking to make the roster as a tight end.
Knee injuries are one thing you don’t want to mess with, I speak from experience. When I played, I injured both of my knees a handful of times in a course of 3 seasons, now I regret it everyday since I ignored the fact that I needed surgery. As a professional, you need to stay on top of things like this, hopefully Walker bounces back and the Titans get their money’s worth.
We’ll have to just wait and see once he’s medically cleared to practice and eventually play.
