David Fluellen: Lands on IR

Fluellen (knee) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Analysis: Fluellen has missed three straight practices due to this knee injury. It's unclear if this is a season-ending injury, but Fluellen will be sidelined for at least eight weeks as he recovers. His absence will mainly affect special teams, as Fluellen only played four offensive snaps in two games this year.

David Fluellen: Not playing Sunday

Fluellen (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Fluellen exclusively played special teams in Week 4 and has been unable to practice this week due to the knee injury. The Titans will have Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis as their only available running backs Sunday, barring a roster move this weekend.

David Fluellen: Not practicing Thursday

Fluellen (knee) did not practice Thursday, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: Fluellen has yet to participate in practice this week due to a knee injury. If he's unable to suit up for Sunday's game against the Bills, the Titans could lack for depth behind Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis.

David Fluellen: Clear of hamstring injury

Fluellen (hamstring) was a full practice participant Wednesday.

Analysis: Fluellen was unable to play in the last two contests but his return to full participation Wednesday puts him on track for Week 4. The 27-year-old should continue to serve in his depth role behind Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis.

David Fluellen: Back at practice

Fluellen (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: It's unclear what capacity Fluellen practiced at since the first injury report won't be released until Wednesday. This is a positive sign for his return to Week 4's game versus the Falcons, although he'll stay in a special-teams role as long as Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis are healthy.

David Fluellen: Ruled out for Thursday

Fluellen (hamstring) won't play in Thursday's game versus the Jaguars, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Fluellen will miss his second straight game due to this hamstring injury. He didn't practice all week, either, but the Thursday game will give him 10 days to recover before Week 4's matchup versus the Falcons. Even when Fluellen is healthy, his main usage will be on special teams since Derrick Henry is easing into a pass-catching role in addition to being the bell cow.

David Fluellen: Won't suit up vs. Indy

Fluellen (hamstring) is on the inactive list Week 2 against Indianapolis.

Analysis: Even when healthy, Fluellen has a long climb to relevance with Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis firmly entrenched ahead of him on the depth chart. He'll look to return to a role mostly involving special teams in Week 3, but the team has a short turnaround, heading to Jacksonville for this week's Thursday night game.

David Fluellen: Works as limited participant

Fluellen (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Colts.

Analysis: Fluellen didn't participate in Thursday's practice which is negative sign for his status, but he was able to work in a limited capacity Friday. Even if Fluellen shakes off his injury in time, however, his workload is geared toward special teams with Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis ahead of him in the depth chart.

September 13, 2019 12:05 PM EST

David Fluellen: No practice Thursday

Fluellen (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: Fluellen was limited Wednesday after having played through a knee injury Week 1. He'll have one more opportunity to practice fully ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Colts. If Fluellen is forced to sit out Week 2, the Titans will go forward without depth behind Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis unless they choose to add a running back to the roster.

September 12, 2019 11:02 AM EST

David Fluellen: Limited in practice

Fluellen (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Fluellen dealt with a knee injury leading up to the season opener but was ultimately active at game time. He didn't have a large role in the team's offense with just four snaps and no touches. If Fluellen's unable to get healthy for Sunday's game versus the Colts, the Titans will roll out just two running backs -- Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis -- unless they sign another player.

September 11, 2019 2:08 PM EST

David Fluellen: Works without limitations

Fluellen (knee) was a full practice participant Wednesday.

Analysis: Fluellen had a minor knee surgery Aug. 21. He's already back to full speed and will be ready for Sunday's game versus the Browns. However, he's destined for a special-teams role -- he logged just 23 offensive snaps in 23 games with the Titans over the last two years -- behind Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis.

David Fluellen: Practices Tuesday

Fluellen (knee) will participate in some extent during Tuesday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Fluellen has been managing a knee injury since Tennessee's first preseason tilt. While it remains to be seen whether Fluellen will be limited as he resumes practicing, he appears to have a shot of retaking the field Week 1. The 27-year-old is competing for the No. 3 gig behind Derrick Henry (calf) and Dion Lewis.

David Fluellen: Undergoes knee surgerty

Fluellen (knee) underwent knee surgery but is hoping to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Analysis: Fluellen had mysteriously been absent from practice since the team's first preseason game. Details of the procedure are sparse, yet it appears there's some optimism Fluellen will be ready for the team's Week 1 contest against the Browns. Prior to the injury, he was listed as the team's third-string back, though his absence will create more opportunity for the likes Jeremy McNichols, Dalyn Dawkins and Akeem Hunt.

David Fluellen: Listed as third-string back

Fluellen (ankle) was listed as the team's third-string running back in their first depth chart, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Fluellen is currently battling an ankle injury and has not practiced since exiting early from Friday's session. However, that didn't stop the team from listing him as the primary backup behind Derrick Henry (calf) and Dion Lewis on the first depth chart of the season. While that isn't likely to line him up for any major volume to begin the campaign, he has held off competition such as Jeremy McNichols and Alex Barnes to this point.

David Fluellen: Suffers apparent ankle injury

Fluehllen exited Friday's practice with an apparent right ankle injury, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Fluellen limped off the field and headed into the building with the athletic trainer after sustaining the injury. The 27-year-old added some weight this offseason to potentially work as a fullback for the Titans, but it's unclear how long the injury will keep him sidelined.

August 2, 2019 9:54 AM EST

David Fluellen: Bulks up

Fluellen gained 16-17 pounds in the offseason, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Fluellen won't factor heavily into the offensive gameplan barring injury, with both Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis firmly ahead of him on the depth chart. However, his added muscle will give him the chance to also work as the team's fullback -- another avenue for him to stick on the roster. Last season, Fluellen carried the ball just four times for 16 yards.

June 19, 2019 6:37 PM EST

David Fluellen: Returning to Tennessee

Fluellen is re-signing an undisclosed contract with the Titans, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

Analysis: The depth running back was plagued by injuries in 2018, and only carried the ball four times for 16 yards in seven games. Fluellen was placed on injured reserve Dec. 20 with a knee injury, but will likely be ready for training camp. Expect the Toledo product to have slim fantasy value in the Tennessee backfield, barring injuries, in 2019.

March 11, 2019 2:50 PM EST

David Fluellen: Moved to IR

Fluellen (knee) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Fluellen missed the Titan's last-five games and looks like he'll need a few more weeks before he could see the field, which is what led to his placement on IR. His move shouldn't impact the Titans' running back rotation much at all, as Fluellen had only seen six offensive snaps in the seven games he was healthy and active for.

December 20, 2018 2:38 PM EST

David Fluellen: Won't play Week 15

Fluellen (knee_) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Fluellen will miss his fifth straight game and hasn't practiced in the last two weeks. The 26-year-old will look towards Week 16 against the Redskins for a potential return, though there has yet to be any indication he's near a return. Jeremy McNichols will serve as the Titans' No. 3 running back in his absence.

December 14, 2018 1:33 PM EST

David Fluellen: Held out of Wednesday's session

Fluellen (knee) did not practice Wednesday, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Fluellen's knee injury has now reached a month in length. Even if the 26-year-old returns to practice later this week, it's tough to see a scenario in which he'd be of value for Sunday's contest. In regards to this week, things are looking bleak for the Toledo product.
