Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt met with Wright to discuss the wide receiver's route running, The Tennessean reports.

For Wright's first two years in the league, pre-Whisenhunt, he was given some freedom when running routes. Whisenhunt changed that in his first season as Tennessee's head coach in 2014, having Wright run more disciplined routes. That may partially explain the noticeable dip in production for Wright, who went from 94 catches and 139 targets in 2013 to 57 and 93 in 2014. Whisenhunt said the two are on the same page and feels the more disciplined routes creates better spacing overall for all receivers.

As expected, the Titans have picked up Wright's fifth-year contract option, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

The 20th pick overall in the 2012 NFL draft, Wright is coming off a 2014 season in which he recorded 57 catches for 715 yards and six TDs in 14 games. Tuesday's move ensures that the Titans will retain his rights through the 2016 season. Wright -- who caught a career-high 94 passes for 1,079 yards in 2013 -- approaches the 2015 season atop the Tennessee wideout depth chart, but his fantasy prospects ultimately hinge largely on how the team's currently unsettled QB situation pans out.

The Titans are expected to exercise the fifth-year option on Wright's rookie contract before the May 3 deadline, the Nashville Tennessean reports.

The option would pay Wright $7.3 million for the 2016 season, if the two sides don't first work out a long-term extension. The Titans will likely pick it up, given that it's only guaranteed for injury. Wright is locked into a starting job in Tennessee, but the team's quarterback situation remains shaky, and the Baylor product has averaged a modest 72-807-4 receiving line over 15 games through his first three seasons.

Wright had two catches on five targets for nine yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Wright's touchdown was his fifth this season, though only his second since Week 7. He ends the year with 57 catches on 93 targets for 715 yards in 13 games, a fairly significant decline after he caught 94 passes on 139 targets for 1,079 yards last season. He's got one year left on his rookie contract, so he is fully expected to be back next season, and he could play a bigger role if Nate Washington isn't brought back.

Wright (hand) caught 4-of-5 targets for 73 yards in Thursday's 21-13 loss to the Jaguars.

After missing the previous two games, Wright didn't show any signs of being bothered by his hand injury. He and Delanie Walker are the top two options in the Tennessee passing game, but that's been the case all season, and Wright has still been incredibly inconsistent. The Titans face the Colts in Week 17.

Wright (hand) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Jaguars, the Titans' official site reports.

Wright is out there if you need him Thursday, but it's unclear how close to 100 percent he will be in his return to action after missing two games, and with Charlie Whitehurst starting at QB for the Titans, the wideout is a speculative play in Week 16.

Wright (hand) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Jaguars, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

Per the Tennessean, Wright is hopeful with regard to his chances of playing Thursday, but those considering the wideout in Week 16 are advised to verify his status in advance of Thursday's 8:25 ET kickoff, in any case.

Wright (hand) was limited at Tuesday's practice, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.

Wright said he felt good catching passes during practice, but his status for Thursday's game against the Jaguars remains uncertain. Wright's participation, or lack thereof, in Wednesday's practice will likely go a long way in determining his Week 16 availability.

The Titans are hopeful that Wright (hand) can return for Week 16, TitanInsider.com's Terry McCormick reports.

He missed last week's game against the Jets with a hand injury, but with Charlie Whitehurst the likely starter for Thursday's game against the Jaguars, Wright would be a risky play even if he was fully healthy. Consider him questionable for Thursday's game.
