The Titans have signed Sean Spence to compete with Woodyard and Avery Williamson at the inside linebacker position, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Spence is a special-teams standout who has also started 13 games over the past two seasons, making him a viable alternative should either of Tennesee's 2015 starters at the position struggle early in the new campaign. Woodyard should slot in ahead of Spence on the depth chart if he can stay healthy, but the veteran linebacker can't afford a dip in level at age 29.

Woodyard recorded 10 tackles (eight solo), a sack, a quarterback hit, and two tackles for loss in a losing effort against Miami on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Woodyard played very well, but sadly the same could not be said about most of his teammates on either side of the ball. He'll look to continue his personal strong play against the Falcons next week, and hopefully the rest of the Titans will follow suit.

Woodyard (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

The ankle injury didn't prevent Woodyard from practicing this week, so he'll more than likely start at one of the inside linebacker spots for the Titans. Woodyard has collected 10 tackles and a sack over the Titans' first two games.

Woodyard (ankle) is considered probable for Sunday's game against Cincinnati, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.

The ankle injury appears to be minor, thus giving Woodyard an excellent chance of being active come Sunday. The inside linebacker has 10 tackles and one sack through Tennessee's first two games.

Wesley Woodyard is "penciled in" as a starting inside linebacker in the Titans' new 3-4 defense.

Zach Brown, Moise Fokou, Colin McCarthy, and Zaviar Gooden are vying for the other ILB job. Woodyard measured 6-foot, 227 coming out of Kentucky, and the Titans lack a true hold-the-point nose tackle to keep offensive linemen from entering the second level. Tennessee's run defense will be worth targeting in fantasy matchups this year. They are undermanned in most front-seven areas.

Titans signed LB Wesley Woodyard to a four-year, $16 million contract.

Although Woodyard lost his starting job to Paris Lenon down the stretch last season following a nasty stinger, he is a swiss-army-knife linebacker with exceptional versatility and special teams impact. He adds more speed to an already highly athletic Tennessee linebacker corps. Woodyard seems unlikely to start in Nashville, but could wind up playing 50-plus percent of the defensive snaps as a nickel 'backer. He'll also run down kickoffs and punts.

Free agent LB Wesley Woodyard will visit the Patriots.

It's unclear when Woodyard will make the trip to Foxboro, but it will be his first visit of free agency and could take place on Tuesday. Woodyard was stretched as the Broncos' middle linebacker last season but proved to be an above-average weak-side 'backer in 2012. The Cowboys are also interested in Woodyard.
