Titans Insider's Terry McCormick passed along this update on Washington.
Nate Washingtonno practice should go tomorrow— Terry McCormick (@terrymc13) September 12, 2012
Missing Wednesday's practice is not alarming in terms of his chances to take the field next week. That is fairly common practice with players coming back from injury. If he is on the practice field Thursday, chances are he will be playing Week 2.
UPDATE: September 10 at 4:45 p.m. ET by Tim Keeney
Nate Washington's leg injury isn't too serious and it appears as though he'll be ready to go for Tennessee's Week 2 matchup against the San Diego Chargers.
The news comes from the Tennessee Titans' official Twitter account:
Munchak also said Nate Washington (leg bruise) should be ready to play Sunday. #Titans— Tennessee Titans (@tennesseetitans) September 10, 2012
With Kenny Britt returning from suspension in Week 2, this means the Titans will have plenty of depth at the wide receiver spot.
If Britt is healthy enough, he'll start opposite Washington with Kendall Wright working out of the slot and Damian Williams providing depth. This is great news for Tennessee fans.

Washington is questionable to return to the game, according to The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt via Twitter:
Nate Washington suffered leg contusion, questionable as well— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) September 9, 2012
Washington had caught two passes for 53 yards and a touchdown before leaving with the leg contusion. He was on the receiving end of a 29-yard touchdown pass from Jake Locker in the third quarter.
Washington has never missed a regular season game in six NFL seasons. Fans are not used to seeing the 29-year-old limp off the field.
Washington led the Titans in receiving last season, and will be sorely missed if he doesn't return to the lineup quickly.
Stay tuned for more information on Washington's status as it becomes available.
