Nate Washington missed practice Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.
Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington (leg) missed his second straight practice Thursday, reports Terry McCormick. Washington left Sunday's game after a brutal sandwich collision with two Patriots defenders on the same play that saw QB Jake Locker hurt his shoulder. The team still expects him to play Sunday against the San Diego Chargers.
Fantasy Impact: Washington was an appealing sleeper pick in Week 1 with starter Kenny Britt sitting out a one-game suspension, but he only had two catches on eight targets before leaving the game. With Britt coming back next Sunday and the emergence of Kendall Wright, Washington is going to have a bigger fight for touches. He's not a viable starter in Week 2.
