Wright sustained an MCL sprain during the team’s 20–6 loss to the Houston Texans in Week 8 after making a catch in the third quarter. He was able to walk to the locker room, but did not return to the game.
The fourth-year player has started all seven of the games he has played in this season, accumulating 343 receiving yards on 28 receptions for three touchdowns.
Cornerback Jason McCourty was also ruled out on Friday with a groin injury.
Kickoff between the Titans (2–6) and Panthers (8–0) is set for 1:00 p.m. ET.
