Titans Raiders injury report

Here is a look at the Tennessee Titans and Oakland Raiders injury report for their week one NFL preseason game.

Titans

The Titans official injury report only has two players on it.
LeShaun Sims has not practiced.┬áCameron Wolfe of ESPN wrote of Sims here. It was not encouraging to read that Sims said, “You don’t want to try to come back too early and do something to put yourself out longer than it would have been. ”

Taylor Lewan has been limited this week. Lewan is expected to have to block Raiders star Khalil Mack during this game. The Titans likely are just being careful so that he is ready for Mack.
Dodd is likely to be inactive since he doesn’t play special teams and most (if not all) of the other linebackers do.
Coach Mike Mularkey has stated that Corey Davis will be limited. He had more reps in practice Thursday than at any time during training camp.
The news has been positive about Eric Decker this week.

Taywan Taylor is a surprise listing on this report. He bruised his calf on August 27th. He is not on the Titans injury report. He has not only participated fully in practice, but Coach Mularkey has stated that he received many reps.

Raiders

Osemele, Cooper, and Mack popped up on the injury report on Wednesday. They practiced fully on Thursday. Wednesday’s absence has been called a veteran’s day off by bloggers.

Janikowski was at a contract impasse with the Raiders but agreed to take a paycut recently.

David Amerson practiced fully and seems like a “go” for Sunday.

Raiders announcer Greg Papa does not expect Garreon Conley to play on Sunday. He did practice.

Cory James has practiced this week. PFF gave him the third highest grade of any linebacker this preseason. His absence would have been a major concern for the Raiders.

Olawale did not practice on Thursday.
