While the Tennessee Titans are coming off one of the biggest upsets of the NFL season, Wednesday’s game against the Houston Texans served as a reminder that this team is extremely short-handed.

On Wednesday, the team released their first injury report of Week 15, and while the session was only a walkthrough, it provided us with insight into the status of several players.

The biggest story of the day was the injury to cornerback Kristian Fulton. Fulton was expected to be out for several weeks after being injured against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 14, but being placed on injured reserve was unexpected. Kyle Peko, a defensive lineman, was also placed on injured reserve.

While many of the players listed would be a huge loss if they were to miss Sunday’s game, it is not yet time to panic. As a reminder, the session on Wednesday was a walkthrough, and the Titans had just played the night before, so the coaches were most likely being extremely cautious with participation.

The Houston Texans have their own injury concerns, including starting quarterback C.J. Stroud, who is dealing with a concussion. In addition to Stroud, injured players include edge rusher Will Anderson, linebacker Blake Cashman, wide receiver Nico Collins, offensive tackle George Fant, cornerback Tavierre Thomas, and offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil. All were absent from Wednesday’s practice.
