Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright suffered a knee injury early in the preseason and that has kept him out of action ever since, but Wright now appears to be on schedule to participate in the team’s season-opener at Heinz Field against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Wright returned to practice on Monday morning and head coach Mike Munchak seemed optimistic that the speedster would be available as the No. 3 wide receiver.

Despite his incredible talent on the field, Wright has hurt only himself throughout his NFL career with immaturity and the inability to grasp an NFL offense. However, after a strong offseason of work, Wright is finally ready to take the positive steps forward to become the player that the Titans were hoping they would get when they drafted him.

Playing against the Steelers will be no easy task, but at least the team will be as close to 100 percent as possible as they make their first attempt of the year to begin their crawl out of the AFC South cellar.
