Kendall Wright’s career with the Tennessee Titans may be ending with a whimper, as the former first-round pick is a healthy scratch for the second time in four games in today’s finale against the Houston Texans.
Wright, who was benched earlier this season due to missing a meeting, is inactive again today and will be a free agent at season’s end. Wright, who finishes the season with a career-low 29 catches, likely won’t return to the Titans next season. Tre McBride was kept active in his place.
Also, cornerback Jason McCourty is out with a shoulder/chest injury for the second straight game. McCourty is also a question mark regarding his future. He is under contract for one more season, but has a $7 million base salary for 2017 and the Titans are likely to undergo an overhaul in the secondary.
Other inactives today include safety Curtis Riley, guard Sebastian Tretola, defensive lineman Angelo Blackson and linebacker David Bass, who is also an unrestricted free agent.
Those inactives mean that two players, who are recent promotions from the practice squad, are active for the first time for the Titans – cornerback D’Joun Smith and nose tackle Antwaun Woods.
Texans inactives are running back Lamar Miller, linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, linebacker John Simon, fullback Jay Prosch, linebacker Brian Cushing, quarterback Brandon Weeden and cornerback Johnathan Joseph.
