Titans’ Conklin ready to play his first game this season
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Titans right tackle Jack Conklin is set to play for the first time since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in January during a playoff loss to the New England Patriots.
Conklin was a full participant in practice throughout the week as the Titans prepare to host the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
Conklin’s top backup — Dennis Kelly — remains out with a mysterious illness that has kept him sidelined since the season opener.
Cornerback Adoree Jackson has been cleared from concussion protocol and will play Sunday. Running back David Fluellen remains out this week with a groin injury. Backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert will see an independent physician to determine if he can be cleared from concussion protocol.
