Washington and Humphries agreed to a contract Thursday.
Analysis: Humphries has experience catching passes for new starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who started 10 games for the Bucs back in 2017 and 2018. Those campaigns happen to coincide with Humphries' best statistically, as he combined for a 137-1,447-6 line on 188 targets in 32 games working with Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston. Humphries fell off a bit that past two years with the Titans -- mostly due to injury and their run-heavy scheme -- hauling in 60 of 82 targets for 602 yards and four scores in 19 appearances. He'll work primarily out of the slot in Washington, working in tandem with Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel.

Humphries (concussion) is visiting with Washington on Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Humphries doesn't have any track record with coach Ron Rivera or OC Scott Turner, but the veteran slot receiver did play with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in Tampa Bay for two seasons (2017-18). Those were the two best statistical seasons of Humphries' career, with a 76/816/5 receiving line in 2018 inspiring the Titans to give him a four-year, $36 million contract in spring 2019. Humphries caught 60 passes for 602 yards and four touchdowns in 19 games with Tennessee, missing four contests in 2019 and nine more in 2020. Lingering concussion symptoms were the major problem last season, but Humphries should still be a solid slot receiver if he stays healthy. He'll turn 28 in June and would be a clear favorite for Washington's No. 3 receiver job behind Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel.

The Titans released Humphries on Thursday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Signed to a four-year, $36 million contract during the 2019 offseason, Humphries played in 19 regular-season games for Tennessee, catching 60 of 82 targets for 602 yards and four touchdowns. He was a reliable slot receiver before a concussion wiped out the second half of his 2020 campaign, but he never had a chance to live up to the contract while playing in a run-heavy offense that ranked near the bottom of the league in usage of three-wide formations. Humphries will turn 28 in June, so he still has time to revive his career with a new team.

Humphries (concussion) could be released this offseason, according to Gentry Estes of The Tennessean.
Analysis: Signed to a four-year, $36 million contract during the 2019 offseason, Humphries has averaged only 3.2 catches for 31.7 receiving yards in 19 regular-season games with the Titans. He made just one appearance after Week 8 in 2020, struggling with concussion symptoms throughout much of the season. The Titans will free up approximately $4.75 million in cap space if they trade or release the 27-year-old slot receiver this winter/spring.

Humphries' placement on injured reserve Tuesday is related to the concussion he suffered earlier this season, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com reports.
Analysis: Humphries was sidelined for four games with the head injury before he was cleared to return to the lineup for Sunday's 41-35 loss to the Browns. While he wasn't known to have exited early in the contest due to an injury, he apparently was diagnosed with a recurrence of the concussion symptoms upon being evaluated after the contest. Humphries will now be sidelined for at least three games as a result of the setback, making him ineligible to suit up again for the Titans until Week 17 versus the Texans.

The Titans plan to place Humphries on injured reserve Tuesday due to an unspecified injury, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com reports.
Analysis: After missing four straight games due to a concussion, Humphries returned to the lineup for last week's loss to the Browns, playing 36 percent of the offensive snaps in the contest and finishing with one reception for nine yards on four targets. The Titans didn't indicate that Humphries suffered a recurrence of concussion symptoms in the contest or a new injury, but additional details on his situation should emerge in the coming days. He'll have to miss at least the next three games while on IR, making him ineligible to play again until Week 17 against the Texans.
Dec 8, 2020 12:29 PM EST
Humphries recorded one reception on four targets for nine yards in Week 13 against the Browns.
Analysis: Humphries returned to game action after a four-game absence due to a concussion. He was on the field for only 36 percent of offensive snaps as the team has utilized more two-tight end formations, though he still managed four targets. Given that Ryan Tannehill took to the air 45 times against the Browns, it's unlikely that Humphries will see significant target volume in a Week 14 matchup against the Jaguars.
Dec 7, 2020 7:44 AM EST
Humphries (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Browns, John Glennon of Broadway Sports Media reports.
Analysis: Humphries practiced fully all week and his lack of injury designation suggests he has passed the league's five-step concussion protocol. The slot receiver is all set for his first game action since sustaining the concussion back in Week 8.
Dec 4, 2020 1:32 PM EST
Humphries (concussion) practiced fully Wednesday, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.
Analysis: A full practice session to start the week bodes well for Humphries' chances of returning to action Sunday against the Browns. The Titans' slot man last suited up in Week 8, so it's been a deliberate recovery process for Humphries, who's caught 22 passes for 219 yards and two TDs in the six games he's suited up for this season.
Dec 2, 2020 1:18 PM EST
Humphries (concussion) won't play Sunday against the Colts, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: With Humphries still out, Cameron Batson and Kalif Raymond will continue to see added opportunities in Tennessee's Week 12 passing attack behind top wide receivers A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.
Nov 27, 2020 12:19 PM EST
Humphries (concussion) was noted as a limited participant on the Titans' estimated practice report Thursday, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.
Analysis: Humphries has been forced to sit out three consecutive contests while navigating the NFL's concussion protocol, and he's seemingly not yet in the clear for Week 12, regressing from full to limited practice participation between Wednesday and Thursday. If the 27-year-old is ultimately unable to go for a matchup against the Colts, Kalif Raymond would be elevated to the No. 3 slot in Tennessee's receiving corps.
Nov 26, 2020 2:07 PM EST
Humphries (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: The Titans haven't yet announced that Humphries has fully cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol, but to see him listed as a full participant in practice certainly represents significant progress. It appears as though Humphries has a solid chance to return from his three-game absence in Indianapolis on Sunday.
Nov 25, 2020 2:40 PM EST
Coach Mike Vrabel said Wednesday that Humphries (concussion) will be evaluated at practice, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.
Analysis: Humphries has missed three straight games while in the league's five-step concussion protocol, so practicing in any capacity would represent a tangible step in the right direction. The slot receiver will need to attain full medical clearance before returning to game action, so his chances of traveling to Indianapolis on Sunday remain murky.
Nov 25, 2020 9:20 AM EST
Humphries (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Analysis: On the plus side, coach Mike Vrabel noted that Humphries is making progress in the concussion protocol and has been attending meetings. Humphries will thus target a possible return to action in Week 12, which sets the stage for Cameron Batson and Kalif Raymond to continue to see added opportunities behind A.J. Brown and Corey Davis this weekend.
Nov 20, 2020 12:05 PM EST
Humphries (concussion) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Back-to-back absences suggest that Humphries is trending toward missing Sunday's game against the Ravens. If he remains sidelined this weekend, added Week 11 opportunities would be available for Cameron Batson and Kalif Raymond.
Nov 19, 2020 12:12 PM EST
Humphries (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday.
Analysis: Humphries, who suffered a concussion back in Week 8, has missed the Titans' last two games and his absence from practice Wednesday isn't a good sign with regard to his chances of returning to action Sunday against the Ravens. If Humphries remains out this weekend, added Week 11 snaps would be available for Cameron Batson and Kalif Raymond.
Nov 18, 2020 1:14 PM EST
Coach Mike Vrabel said Monday that Humphries is still in the concussion protocol, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Humphries couldn't suit up for last Thursday's loss to the Colts, and he still hasn't been cleared to retake the field. He'll need to garner full clearance from the league's five-step protocol in order to have any chance of playing in Baltimore on Sunday. Kalif Raymond and Cameron Batson will once again be in line for added work behind A.J. Brown and Corey Davis if Humphries misses another week.
Nov 16, 2020 8:40 AM EST
Humphries (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Colts.
Analysis: With Humphries still sidelined and targeting a return to action in Week 10, Kalif Raymond and Cameron Batson are in line to see added work Thursday behind the team's top two wide receiver options, A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.
Nov 11, 2020 1:15 PM EST
Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said Tuesday that Humphries remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: For the second straight day, Humphries looks set to go down as a non-participant on the injury report, which seemingly puts him on track to miss Thursday's game against the Colts. The Titans will wait and see if Humphries can make any progress at their final practice of the week Wednesday before an official decision on his Week 10 status is made.
Nov 10, 2020 12:03 PM EST
Humphries (concussion) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report.
Analysis: Humphries was knocked from the Titans' Week 8 loss at Cincinnati due to a concussion and hasn't practiced or played in the interim. Granted, that translates to just one game missed, but with no reps to kick off this week either, he hasn't made much, if any, progress through the protocol for head injuries. The Titans may very well rule Humphries out in advance of Thursday's contest against the Colts.
