Tennessee Titans tight end Anthony Firkser is in a tough spot headed into this week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. He is officially listed as questionable on the Week 2 injury report with a knee issue. After being limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, he was downgraded on Friday and sat out.

After tight end Jonnu Smith left in in free agency this spring, there was some expectation that Firkser could see an uptick as a pass catcher in Tennessee’s offense. However, throughout the preseason that did not seem to be the case. He was targeted four times last week in a loss to the Cardinals, catching three passes for just 19 yards.

Seeing a downgraded injury status late in the week is never a good sign for a player’s availability. That along with a limited role in the passing offense means you should probably leave Firkser out of fantasy football lineups this week.
