Outside linebacker Derrick Morgan is expected to play in Tennessee's season opener at Miami. The Titans' top two draft choices both are out due to injuries.Titans coach Mike Vrabel announced Friday that Morgan Derrick Henry Jersey , entering his ninth NFL season, would have no injury designation on Sunday. That's just three weeks after reportedly suffering a torn meniscus in his right knee in a preseason game against Tampa Bay on Aug. 18."He's a veteran, and he knows how to take care of his body," Vrabel said. "He knows how to recover. He understands that this game is a physical game and one that takes a toll on your body. But he also understands how to get back out there quickly. I really do appreciate his rehab and his efforts to come back what amounts to about 18 days."Neither inside linebacker Rashaan Evans, who suffered a hamstring injury on the third day of training camp, nor outside linebacker Harold Landry, who injured his right ankle vs. Pittsburgh, practiced Friday.Also out are right tackle Jack Conklin Kevin Byard Jersey , who continues to work his way back from surgery in January to repair his left ACL, and backup safety Kendrick Lewis, who has not practiced since hurting his foot in the preseason against Tampa Bay. Conklin was just removed from the physically unable to perform list on Sept. 1. Jon Robinson adds more depth along the defensive line."The Titans drafted their defensive lineman of the future on Thursday night in Mississippi State star Jeffery Simmons. Today, they turned around and added some defensive line depth for today by signing former Raven Brent Urban.This move makes a lot of sense on a few fronts. For one, he’s got experience with Dean Pees, playing four of his five NFL seasons under the Titans veteran defensive coordinator. Urban also adds some much needed length to the Tennessee front. At 6’-7” tall and 300 pounds with 34.25-inch arms, the big defensive lineman will stand out among a Titans line that features no players taller than 6’-4” currently. Urban doesn’t offer a ton as a pass rusher with just 3.5 career sacks, but his 22 pressures in 2018 would have comfortably been second best among Titans defensive linemen Adam Humphries Jersey , trailing just Jurrell Casey’s 44, but easily outpacing DaQuan Jones at 14 and Austin Johnson at 4.Put simply, Urban is a solid veteran who should contribute in a defensive line rotation right away. This isn’t a signing that moves the needle a ton, but for a team that struggled with defensive line depth and won’t get their 19th overall pick on the field until late in the 2019 season at the earliest, this makes a lot of sense. It wouldn’t be entirely shocking to me if Urban was a starter for Tennessee along the defensive front when the season opens.
