Delanie Walker injury: Titans TE undergoes MRI

20130206_mjr_su5_002

Delanie Walker underwent an MRI after tweaking his knee during Thursday's OTA session with the Tennessee Titans. Walker sat out Friday's practice with the injury. The Titans are hoping it isn't serious, but the results of the MRI have yet to be reported.

Walker, coming off the best season of his career, was signed to be the Titans' top tight end this offseason after Jared Cook left for the St. Louis Rams in free agency. Walker matched career highs with 21 receptions for three touchdowns, and set a new standard with 344 yards receiving last season, all while splitting time with Vernon Davis in San Francisco. Walker should play an even bigger role in Tennessee.

The Titans could have some trouble at the position if Walker misses extended playing time. Behind Walker is Taylor Thompson, a fifth-round draft pick in 2012, and three former undrafted rookie free agents in either their first or second year in the NFL.

According to the SB Nation's Titans blog Music City Miracles, the team is also without second-round draft pick Justin Hunter due to a hamstring injury.
