Titans' Wesley Woodyard: Takes step back
Woodyard recorded 42 tackles, one sack, three tackles for loss, one interception and one forced fumble across 15 games with the Titans in 2019.
After leading the team in tackles for the past two seasons, Woodyard saw a reduced role in 2019. He was on the field for over half of the team's defensive snaps in just four of 15 games, working primarily as a backup inside linebacker. Woodyard will enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, and given his decreased role with the team it would not be a surprise if he were to find a new home for the 2020 campaign and beyond....

One quarter earlier, he also stuffed Phillip Lindsay in the backfield for a four-yard loss.

Titans' Wesley Woodyard: Questionable for Week 3
Woodyard (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Jaguars, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Woodyard didn't participate in practice all week and he may fall victim to the shortened practice schedule leading up to this contest.

Titans' Wesley Woodyard: Leads way with 14 tackles
Woodyard recorded 14 tackles in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts.
Woodyard was all over the field in the season finale, posting a season-best 14 tackles, matching his highest mark in a single game since Week 9 of 2017. He also both led the team in tackles while surpassing the century mark for the second-consecutive campaign -- an impressive feat for the 32-year old. Woodyard will enter the final season of a three-year extension in 2019, and figures to be a major part of the Titans' defense yet again. However, there are a number of promising young inside linebackers on the team that could vie for a bigger role, most notably Jayon Brown and Rashaan Evans.... See More ... See Less
