Insight: The 2010 first-round pick was heading into the season as a nice IDP sleeper, but that appears to be dwindling. Coach Munchak has given no timetable for his return and also made known that he was seeing Dr. James Andrews (three words you never want to see). He was showing some upside during the preseason, but this setback could hinder his season.

Insight: He says he's healthy enough to play this weekend but the team will make the call. Even still, he should be ready by week 1 and is targeting the final preseason game to make his debut.

Insight: Morgan will likely start the season as a situational player before pushing for a starting job. His injuries have really ruined his chances at significant time this year, but he is still a good dynasty commodity.

Description: The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with rookie DE Derrick Morgan on a five-year deal, reports The Associated Press. Financial terms were not available. SOURCE: TOP 50 NFL NEWS
Insight: Morgan has some skills as a pass rusher and enters camp as the 3rd DE on the depth chart. He could be a situational pass rusher by mid-season.

Description: The Titans currently have rookie DL Derrick Morgan listed as the third-string right defensive end on the pre-camp depth chart. SOURCE: TITANSONLINE.COM
Insight: Jacob Ford and Jason Babin are in front for now. Morgan was hindered by hamstring and calf injuries in spring workouts and also made the news by getting arrested and charged with speeding and driving with a suspended license last month. The No. 16 overall pick has training camp to prove his worth, but his NFL career has started off slow.
