Adam Humphries: Should keep slot role

Humphries should remain the Titans' primary slot receiver after the team did not add to its receiving corps in the draft.

Analysis: Humphries battled an ankle injury in his first campaign in Tennessee, limiting him to 12 games in the regular season. However, he should return to his role in the slot, where he drew 78.3 percent of his snaps in 2019. Still, with both A.J. Brown and Corey Davis still on the roster, Humphries may find it difficult to repeat his 76 catch effort from the 2018 campaign.

Adam Humphries: Loses volume in Tennessee

Humphries hauled in 37 of his 47 targets for 374 yards and two touchdowns across 12 games for the Titans in the 2019 season.

Analysis: Even taking into account games lost due to injury, Humphries saw a decreased role in his first season in Tennessee. Working primarily out of the slot, Humphries was overshadowed by both Corey Davis and A.J. Brown. Given that all three receivers are likely to return to the team in 2020, it's difficult to find a scenario in which Humphries will return to his 2018 form when he recorded 76 receptions. On the other hand, the Titans may be motivated to find a more effective role for him given the significant four-year, $36 million investment they made in him during the 2019 offseason.

Adam Humphries: Returns to action

Humphries (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: In his first game action since Dec. 1, it's possible that Humphries could be eased back into the mix, but at the very least, his return will give the Titans another viable receiving option out of the slot to complement starting wideouts, A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.

Adam Humphries: Listed as questionable

Humphries (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Humphries logged a full slated of limited practices this week, signalling that he has a chance to return to action this weekend for the first time since Dec. 1. Prior to suffering his ankle injury in Week 13, Humphries hauled in 37 of his 47 targets for 374 yards and two TDs. If he does suit up Sunday, it remains to be seen how heavily he'd be utilized, but the 26-year-old would, at a minimum, give the Titans another receiving option out of the slot, while costing Tajae Sharpe some snaps.

Adam Humphries: Logs another limited practice

Humphries (ankle) remained limited at practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: We'll circle back on Humphries' status Friday to see if he's listed as questionable or minus an injury designation for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Chiefs, but back-to-back practices with no reported setbacks have the Titans' slot man (who last suited up Dec. 1) trending in the right direction.

Adam Humphries: Back at practice

Humphries (ankle) returned to a limited practice Wednesday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Humphries didn't practice at all last week, so his return to the field Wednesday, albeit in a limited capacity, suggests that the Titans' slot man -- who has missed the team's last six games -- has a chance to suit up for Sunday's AFC Championship game.

Adam Humphries: Remains out this week

Humphries (ankle) won't play in Saturday's playoff game against the Ravens, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: With Humphries, who hasn't played since Dec. 1, still dealing with his lingering ankle issue, Tajae Sharpe will continue to see an expanded role in the Titans passing offense behind the team's top two wide receivers, A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.

January 9, 2020 10:55 AM EST

Adam Humphries: Misses another practice

Humphries (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Humphries has one more chance to take the practice field in advance of Saturday's playoff contest against the Ravens, but at this stage it doesn't look he'll return to action this weekend. If he remains out, Tajae Sharpe will continue to see added snaps behind the Titans' top wide receivers, A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.

Adam Humphries: Not practicing to begin week

Humphries (ankle) wasn't on the field Tuesday for the Titans' practice session, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: Considering Humphries hasn't played since Dec. 1, his absence from practice to begin the week doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up in Saturday's divisional-round playoff game versus the Ravens. Tajae Sharpe has essentially filled Humphries' role as the Titans' No. 3 receiver over the past five weeks, notching 13 receptions for 141 yards and two touchdowns on 17 targets during that stretch.

January 7, 2020 12:11 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Ruled out this week

Humphries (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Patriots, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: With Humphries sidelined for Saturday's wild-card contest, Tajae Sharpe will continue to see added snaps this weekend behind the Titans' top wide receivers, A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.

January 2, 2020 1:24 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Sits out another practice

Humphries (ankle) remained sidelined at practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: We'll revisit Humphries' status Thursday, but at this stage he's tending toward missing Saturday's Wild Card matchup versus the Patriots. If he remains sidelined this weekend, added snaps behind the Titans' top wide receivers, A.J. Brown and Corey Davis, will once again be available for Tajae Sharpe.

January 1, 2020 12:32 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Not practicing Tuesday

Humphries (ankle) was a non-participant at Tuesday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Humphries missed the last four games of the regular season and still hasn't practiced since suffering the ankle injury Dec. 1. The Titans haven't revealed an official timeline for the 26-year-old's return, though it seems there's a good chance he doesn't play Saturday at New England. Tajae Sharpe should continue to work as Tennessee's No. 3 wide receiver if Humphries remains sidelined.

Adam Humphries: Won't play Sunday

Humphries (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Analysis: With Humphries -- who last played in Week 13 -- still out, look for Tajae Sharpe see added work in three-receiver sets Sunday alongside A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.

December 27, 2019 1:49 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Absent from practice

Humphries (ankle) wasn't spotted on the field for Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: With Humphries having yet to practice in any capacity since injuring his ankle in the Titans' Dec. 1 win over the Colts, he's looking unlikely to play in the regular-season finale Sunday against the Texans. Another absence from Humphries would free up work in three-receiver sets for Tajae Sharpe alongside regular starters A.J. Brown and Corey Davis (concussion).

December 26, 2019 12:05 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Ankle still an issue

Humphries (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Humphries has missed three straight games, so his "DNP" estimate Wednesday is not especially promising with regard to his status for Sunday's game against the Texans.

December 25, 2019 3:04 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Remains sidelined

Humphries (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Saints, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: In his continued absence, added Week 16 snaps behind the team's top wide receivers, A.J. Brown and Corey Davis, will be available for Tajae Sharpe. Humphries will thus target a potential return to action in Week 17 against the Texans.

December 20, 2019 10:50 AM EST

Adam Humphries: Sitting out practice

Humphries (ankle) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: With Humphries' ankle injury having prevented him from logging any work in practice since the Titans' Dec. 1 win over the Colts, he'll likely be in line for a third straight absence Sunday in New Orleans. An official word on Humphries' Week 16 status will arrive at some point Friday.

December 19, 2019 12:04 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Remains sidelined Wednesday

Humphries (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Humphries has missed the Titans' last two games, so his absence from Wednesday's practice isn't especially encouraging with regard to his Week 16 status. If he remains sidelined Sunday against the Saints, added snaps would once again be available for Tajae Sharpe.

December 18, 2019 12:30 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Won't play this week

Humphries (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Texans, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.
