WR Wright has broken hand, questionable vs. Giants
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee Titans receiver Kendall Wright says his injured right hand is broken, though it will not keep him out of the rest of the season.
He doesn't sound optimistic about playing this Sunday against the New York Giants, though he is listed as questionable after missing a second straight practice Friday.
''I broke it the other day in practice. I think I'll be back next week. I plan on playing next week,'' Wright said. ''I'm going to try and see how I feel tomorrow and let them evaluate it, but I'm not sure. But I'm definitely not done for the season.''
Wright leads the Titans with 51 receptions for 633 yards and five touchdowns, and he will test his hand Saturday.
''To me, it just depends on how it feels tomorrow,'' Wright said. ''But if I can't play, I can't play. This is a broken hand. It's not like it's an ankle where I can just tape it up and go run. There's no treatment for it. I'll just see if I can catch Zach's (Mettenberger) passes or not. That'll be the big key.''
If Wright can't play, that could leave Tennessee with only three healthy receivers in Nate Washington, Derek Hagan and Kris Durham. Receiver Justin Hunter was placed on season-ending injured reserve Wednesday after lacerating his spleen in last week's loss at Houston.
Mettenberger also is questionable after being limited all week in practice with a sprained right shoulder.
''The big thing today was to see how he felt after two days, and then to get through today and see how he feels tomorrow. We're optimistic he's going to play,'' coach Ken Whisenhunt said.
The Titans also have issues on the offensive line where starting tackles Taylor Lewan (left ankle) and Michael Oher (left toe) both missed last week's game and did not practice Friday. Both are questionable for Sunday. Right guard Chance Warmack practiced fully for a second straight day and is probable with an ankle injury.
Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson (back) was limited Friday and is questionable, while Marqueston Huff (hamstring) practiced fully and is probable.
Linebacker Kamerion Wimbley's injured left hamstring injury will keep him out a second straight week.
