Terrell Edmunds will likely assume the starting strong safety duties for the remainder of the year.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Leads team in tackles in return

    Hooker had 11 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Browns. Hooker returned Sunday after missing Week 2 while in the league's concussion protocols.

Hooker and the Titans will look to get back in the win column in Week 4 when they take on the Bengals at home.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Estimated for full practice Monday

    Hooker, who's missed the last two games with a shoulder injury, was listed as a full participant on the Titans' estimated practice report Monday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

However, his status on Monday's estimated injury report suggests the safety could return as soon as Thursday against Green Bay.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Moves up depth chart

    Hooker is expected to move into a starting role in 2021 after the Titans released fellow safety Kenny Vaccaro on Wednesday, PaulKuharsky.com reports. Hooker started the three games Vaccaro missed last season but otherwise served as the Titans' third safety. The 2019 fourth-round pick made the most of his limited opportunities in his second season, recording 51 tackles, eight pass defenses and four interceptions across only 468 defensive snaps. That production bodes well for Hooker's IDP value in 2021, though fellow Titans safety Kevin Byard (four straight seasons with 16 starts and 84 or more tackles) is a far more reliable choice.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Picks off four passes

    Hooker recorded 51 tackles, one tackle for loss, eight passes defensed and four interceptions across 16 games in the 2020 regular season. Hooker was the Titans' third safety for much of the season, though he was pressed into a bigger role in the absence of Kenny Vaccaro. As a result, he saw an increased role in his second season in the NFL and took advantage by improving his statistics across the board. Vaccaro could be cut this offseason with just a $3 million dead cap hit, meaning Hooker could step into a full-time starting role in the 2021 campaign.
