Adam Humphries: IR move due to concussion

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.

Adam Humphries: Headed to IR

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.

Adam Humphries: Struggles in return

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.

Adam Humphries: Ready to make return

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.

Adam Humphries: Practices fully

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.

Adam Humphries: Remains sidelined this week

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.

Adam Humphries: Listed as limited Thursday

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.

November 26, 2020 2:07 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Logs full practice

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.

November 25, 2020 2:40 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Returning to practice Wednesday

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.

Adam Humphries: Won't be back this week

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.

November 20, 2020 12:05 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Another missed practice

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.

November 19, 2020 12:12 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Not practicing

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.

November 18, 2020 1:14 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Remains in concussion protocol

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.

November 16, 2020 8:40 AM EST

Adam Humphries: Won't play Thursday

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.

November 11, 2020 1:15 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Remains in protocol

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.

November 10, 2020 12:03 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Still not practicing

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.

November 9, 2020 4:28 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Ruled out for Week 9

Coach Mike Vrabel said Friday that Humphries (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game against Chicago, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Humphrey will need to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before he's able to retake the field, leaving next week's Thursday night matchup against the Colts as his earliest possible return date. In the meantime, Kalif Raymond stands to slot in as the No. 3 wideout behind top options A.J. Brown (knee) and Corey Davis.

November 6, 2020 10:46 AM EST

Adam Humphries: Not at practice Friday

Humphries (concussion) wasn't spotted at practice Friday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: That doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Bears, with more clarity on Humphries' Week 9 status due upon the release of Friday's final injury report.

November 6, 2020 10:29 AM EST

Adam Humphries: Absent from practice

Humphries (concussion) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: With back-to-back absences from practice to begin Week 9, Humphries doesn't appear to have made any notable progress through the NFL's concussion protocol since sustaining his head injury in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Unless he takes a significant step forward Friday, Humphries will likely be inactive for this weekend's tilt with the Bears. Kalif Raymond would be the top candidate to start in place of Humphries alongside A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.

November 5, 2020 12:08 PM EST

Adam Humphries: Misses Wednesday's practice

Humphries (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, John Glennon of Broadway Sports reports.

Analysis: Humphries' absence to start the week isn't surprising after he was carted off following a scary blow to the head in last week's loss to the Bengals. The slot receiver will need to clear the concussion protocol before he can return to game action, and while Humphries hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears, he seems unlikely to heal up in time to suit up.
