Tight end Delanie Walker will be in a familiar role for the Tennessee Titans this week when they host the Cincinnati Bengals.
Walker, who was limited in Friday’s practice after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday, is questionable for the second straight week for the Titans due to a bone bruise in his right ankle.
Walker seemed to manage just fine last week in a 23-20 victory over the Ravens on limited work, as he caught all five passes thrown his way for 71 yards after only a few reps in practice.
“They tell me to prepare like I’m playing and I think that’s the best way to go about it, so I can be successful on Sunday,” Walker said Friday. “They just want to make sure I’m on top of my game.”
Walker said the most difficult part of not practicing and then playing is being able to adjust and recognize things.
“You can always watch it on film. We call it the eye in the sky. Seeing it from that point of view always makes it look a lot easier. But when you’re on the field and you’re in a three-point stance, and you can’t see the rotation, that makes it harder,” Walker said.
In addition to Walker, safety Brynden Trawick was added to the injury report Friday, listed as limited and questionable for Sunday’s game.
Guard Quinton Spain will miss his second straight game due to turf toe, while receiver Eric Decker, who missed two days due to illness, was a full participant on Friday and is expected to play Sunday.
