Khalif Raymond: Emerges as home run threat

Raymond recorded nine receptions for 170 yards and one touchdown across eight games for the Titans in 2019.

Analysis: Playing for his third team in the past four seasons, Raymond was a marginally used receiver in Tennessee. Though he played just 98 total snaps, he averaged 18.2 yards per reception. His campaign was highlighted by a win-clinching 40-yard touchdown reception in Week 13 against Indianapolis. Raymond will enter the final year of a two-year contract in 2020, though he'll likely battle among the Titans other pass-catchers for a roster spot next season.

Khalif Raymond: Makes one catch count

Raymond brought in his only target for a 45-yard touchdown in the Titans' 28-12 divisional-round win over the Ravens on Saturday.

Analysis: Raymond was on the receiving end of a perfectly thrown pass from Ryan Tannehill early in the second quarter, a scoring grab that gave the Titans a surprising 14-0 lead at the time. The fourth-year speedster flashed some of the same big-play ability in the regular season (three receptions of over 20 yards, including two over 40), so the downfield shot to him wasn't completely out of the norm. Raymond will look to make a similar impact in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus either the Texans or Chiefs.

Khalif Raymond: Clears concussion protocol

Coach Mike Vrabel said Wednesday that Raymond has cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: Raymond looks set to retake the field after missing Week 17 and Tennessee's playoff opener due to a brain injury. The 25-year-old will handle kick return duties during Saturday's contest in Baltimore, and he'll also provide the Titans with receiver depth.

Khalif Raymond: Practices fully Tuesday

Raymond (concussion) was a full practice participant Tuesday.

Analysis: The 25-year-old missed Week 17 and the playoff opener due to the concussion, but he's nearing his return to action. According to Turron Davenport of ESPN.com, coach Mike Vrabel said Raymond has yet to fully clear the concussion protocol, though he's apparently in the final stages.

Raymond (concussion) is officially inactive for Saturday's game against the Patriots.

Analysis: Raymond was originally considered questionable but was downgraded to doubtful Friday. Darius Jennings is likely to work as the kick returner while Rashard Davis returns punts Saturday.

Khalif Raymond: Unlikely to play Saturday

Raymond (concussion) has been downgraded to doubtful for Saturday's playoff game against the Patriots, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Analysis: The 25-year-old was originally considered questionable after progressing to limited practice participation Wednesday, but it appears he won't be available this weekend. According to Turron Davenport of ESPN.com, Darius Jennings is expected to work as the kick returner while Rashard Davis returns punts in Raymond's absence.

Khalif Raymond: Officially questionable

Raymond (concussion) is questionable for Saturday's playoff contest in New England, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Raymond has logged back-to-back limited practices, but he doesn't appear to have resumed participating in contract drills. The kick returner and depth wideout will need to fully clear the league's protocol for brain injuries before being cleared to retake the field.

Khalif Raymond: Upgraded for Wednesday's practice

Raymond (concussion) was a limited participant for Wednesday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Raymond still resides in the league's concussion protocol, but the fact that he saw limited work at practice is a positive sign for his recovery. He'll likely have to log full practice before being cleared in order to play in Saturday's playoff game against the Patriots.

January 1, 2020 1:16 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Still out Tuesday

Raymond (concussion) did not practice Tuesday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Raymond is still experiencing symptoms of a concussion and thusly continues to be held out of practice. He'll likely need to return to practice in full before being cleared to play in Saturday's Wild Card round against New England.

Khalif Raymond: Can't shake injury

Raymond (concussion) won't play in Sunday's season finale against the Texans, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Analysis: Raymond didn't log any practice time throughout the week, signaling he still resides in the league's mandated concussion protocol. With the undrafted product out of Holy Cross sidelined, Dion Lewis is expected to continue to handle kick-return duties.

December 27, 2019 1:31 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Misses practice again

Raymond (concussion) is not participating in Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Raymond has now missed back-to-back practices, and he's trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Texans. Dion Lewis will likely handle kick return duties if Raymond is forced to miss any time.

December 26, 2019 12:20 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Still not practicing

Raymond (concussion) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimation, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Analysis: Raymond will need to fully clear the league's five-step protocol for brain injuries before retaking the field. If he's unable to suit up against the Texans on Sunday, Dion Lewis will likely take over as Tennessee's top kick returner.

December 25, 2019 4:04 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Lands in concussion protocol

Raymond sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Saints, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Raymond has only played more than 20 offensive snaps in one game this year, so his absence won't shake up the team's offensive dynamic. However, the Titans' wideout depth is hurting, as Corey Davis (concussion) and Adam Humphries (ankle) are also on the mend. Raymond will attempt to clear the league's concussion protocol by Sunday's game against the Texans.

Khalif Raymond: Totals 32 yards

Raymond (head) hauled in both of his targets for 32 yards but also lost a fumble in the team's Week 16 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Raymond recorded both of his receptions after Corey Davis exited with a potential concussion. His first reception went for nine yards, setting up a seven-yard touchdown to Tajae Sharpe on the following play. Raymond also hauled in a 23-yard catch on the team's next offensive possession, but fumbled after taking a hard hit to the head that left him unconscious. It's unclear what Raymond's status for the team's Week 17 matchup against the Texans will be, though if healthy, he would likely not be any better than the team's third wideout.

December 22, 2019 4:05 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Back at full speed

Raymond (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: The knee injury that caused Raymond's entry onto Wednesday's injury report appears to have been minor. The Holy Cross product is on track to play Sunday.

December 19, 2019 2:10 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Nursing knee issue

Raymond was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

Analysis: Raymond appears to have picked up a knee injury during Week 15's loss to the Texans, during which he caught one of two targets for two yards. If he were forced to miss any time, Dion Lewis would likely take over as Tennessee's top kick returner.

December 18, 2019 3:17 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Game-clinching touchdown

Raymond hauled in his only target for a 40-yard touchdown in Week 13 against the Colts.

Analysis: Raymond was held without a catch or target through 57 minutes, but came up with the game-clinching touchdown. With just over three minutes remaining in the contest, Raymond beat safety Rolan Milligan deep to put the Titans' up two scores. Though he has only six targets and five receptions on the season, Raymond has established himself as a deep threat by connecting with Ryan Tannehill for big gains of 52 and 40 yards.

December 1, 2019 10:01 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Waived by Titans

Raymond was waived by the Titans on Saturday, Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports.

Analysis: Raymond was the odd man out in favor of implementing more offensive line depth on the roster. He led that team in receptions (13) and receiving yards (204) during the preseason, and figures to be a strong practice squad candidate should he clear waivers.

September 7, 2019 12:32 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Sticks on roster

Raymond made the Titans 53-man roster after Taywan Taylor was traded to the Browns on Saturday.

Analysis: Raymond is a unique story as he's just 5'8" and 182 pounds and entered the NFL as an unsigned free agent in 2017. He has just one career catch, but did lead the team with 13 catches in the preseason, averaging 15.7 yards per reception. He'll begin the season as depth behind the likes of Corey Davis, Adam Humphries, and A.J. Brown, but could earn more opportunities if any of them go down.

August 31, 2019 9:59 PM EST

Khalif Raymond: Leads way in receiving again

Raymond hauled in all five of his targets for 58 yards in the team's third preseason contest against the Steelers on Sunday.

Analysis: Raymond's name has popped on a few occasions this preseason, and his performance in the team's third exhibition contest was no exception. He hauled in two long receptions late in the game of 21 and 23 yards respectively, and was the only receiver on the team to top a pair receptions against the Steelers. Raymond is making a push to earn a roster spot out of camp, but even if he does so he has a long way to go before he sees consistent targets.
