Kendall Wright believes he suffered at least one cracked rib during the Tennessee Titans' win over the New York Jets on Monday night. The wideout left the game in the fourth quarter, and did not return after his chest landed on the leg of cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
"I knew it when I tried to go back out there and run. I knew that I shouldn't do anything to hurt the team, so I had to come out," Wright said. "And at that point, they wanted to get an X-ray and it didn't look too good."
Fantasy Impact: Wright has yet to be held out of practice, and the Titans haven't officially announced anything on his status. That said, the injury certainly casts some doubt on his status for Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers. Be sure to keep an eye on reports throughout the week if you rely on Wright as a WR3 in deeper formats.
If Wright sits, Kenny Britt and Nate Washington could see a nice boost in fantasy value. Wright leads the Titans with 62 receptions on the year. That said, neither Britt nor Washington is much better than a WR3 at this point. Both have the talent to break out for a big performance in any given week, but they have put up duds far more often this season.
