Kendall Wright scares fantasy owners with knee injury

Andy Lyons

A knee injury forced Kendall Wright to leave early on Saturday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kendall Wright was carted to the locker room after suffering a knee injury in the Titans second preseason matchup. After undergoing an MRI after the game, test results revealed he sustained a sprained knee, putting initial fears of an ACL tear to rest.

Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean said early indications suggested a sprained knee. While Wright was "pretty worried" about his knee afterwards, he will likely only be out for the rest of the preseason.

Fantasy impact: Last week, Wyatt called Wright one of the top performers in training camp. His stock was on the rise, so owners should be happy this will be a short stint on the sidelines.

The Titans have multiple receivers vying for playing time, which will make it hard for owners to pinpoint one in particular to jump on. Wright is listed as a starter opposite Kenny Britt, and he has the upside to be a decent WR3/4.
