Titans Receiver's Status Uncertain for Week 10

The Tennessee Titans are coming off a surprisingly close yet ultimately disappointing 20-17 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, but they could be in for another tough situation when they face the Denver Broncos in Week 10. At his Monday press conference, head coach Mike Vrabel was evasive when asked if rookie wide receiver Treylon Burks would be ready to return from injured reserve in time for Sunday's game.
Burks has been unavailable since suffering a toe injury in the Titans' Week 4 24-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. The rookie had totalled 10 receptions for 129 yards in his four appearances to that point.

The Titans' passing attack needs all the help it can get. Since Burks' absence, the team has netted a ghastly 349 passing yards while scoring 18.5 points per game over their past four contests. Amazingly, Burks 32.3 receiving yards per game this season lead the team.

Burks joined the Titans as their 18th overall pick in this year's draft after three years with Arkansas. He hauled in 146 receptions for 2399 yards over his 32 appearances with the Razorbacks. He was acquired in part to offset the loss of star receiver A.J. Brown, who the Titans traded to the Philadelphia Eagles shortly before drafting Burks.
