Jared Cook Injury: Updates on Titans TE's Shoulder
Don McPeak-US PRESSWIRE

Tennessee Titans tight end Jared Cook left during the first half of Sunday's Week 3 matchup against the Detroit Lions with a shoulder injury. 

UPDATE: Sunday, Sept. 30 at 11:40 a.m. ET by Adam Wells

After Cook started practicing on Friday, it was looking more and more like he would be available for the Titans' game against the undefeated Houston Texans

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean has released the Titans inactive list for the game, and Cook's name is nowhere to be found. 

Given the way the Texans' defense has been steamrolling teams, save for a poor fourth quarter against Denver last week, Cook's presence is vital for the Titans to have a shot. 

Jake Locker won't have his best receiver (Kenny Britt) available to him, so expect a lot more action for the tight ends in this matchup.

Good news from the Titans on Friday afternoon, especially if you own Cook (shoulder) in your fantasy football league. Cook was a full participant in practice today, according to Titans beat writer Terry McCormick.

The chances of Cook playing on Sunday are looking up by the day, and with a full day of practice the "questionable" tag is probably more of a precaution than an indication of his health. Barring any last minute setbacks, it looks like Cook is on track to suit up on Sunday against the Houston Texans. 

According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, head coach Mike Munchak is feeling pretty good about Cook's chances:

 

In other words, barring some sort of setback tomorrow, don't be surprised to see the big tight end on th field come Sunday.

Though not a concrete status update, Titans head coach Mike Munchak said Thursday that he is more nervous about wide receiver Kenny Britt's status than tight end Jared Cook's, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

 

 

For Tennessee, having the athletic tight end in the lineup could pay huge dividends against a ferocious Houston Texans defense.

Glennon tweeted on Wednesday:

 

Munchak added that he could see Cook playing on Sunday against the Houston Texans.

Though we should expect Jared Cook (shoulder) to be questionable this week, head coach Mike Munchak feels good about his chances of playing in Week 4, according to the Tennessee Titans on Twitter

UPDATE: Sunday, Sept. 23 at 5:42 p.m. ET by Richard Langford

The Tennessean's John Glennon gives out what has to be interpreted as positive news. 

Obviously, Cook is not out of the woods yet with an MRI forthcoming, but at least the early feeling is his shoulder will not require surgery. 


UPDATE: Sunday, Sept. 23, at 3:01 p.m. ET by Patrick Clarke

Jared Cook has returned to the sidelines but looks to be done for the rest of the game according to The Tennessean's John Glennon via Twitter

Cook is questionable to return to the game, according to Titans beat writer Terry McCormick via Twitter:

 

Cook was was a thorn in the side of the Lions in the first half, making his presence felt in the passing game before going down. He had 77 yards and a touchdown on four catches for the Titans in the first half. 

Cook scored on a 61-yard touchdown pass from Jake Locker in the second quarter to put Tennessee ahead 17-6.

Stay tuned for more information on Cook's status as it becomes available.
