Titans expect Kendall Wright, Akeem Ayers to play Week 1


The Titans were concerned on Saturday night when receiver Kendall Wright and linebacker Akeem Ayers went down with injuries. But a day later the news on both players is good.

At his Sunday press conference, Titans coach Mike Munchak indicated that he’s optimistic that both Wright and Ayers will be on the field when the Titans take on the Steelers in Week One.

Munchak described Wright as day-to-day with a knee sprain, and although he said Wright definitely won’t play in this week’s preseason game, he is hopeful that Wright will play in Pittsburgh.

The ankle injury that Ayers suffered will probably take at least a week to heal, so Ayers is out for the preseason. But Munchak expects Ayers to play in Pittsburgh, too. So as injuries in the preseason go, the news out of Tennessee is not bad.
