Woodyard recorded 42 tackles, one sack, three tackles for loss, one interception and one forced fumble across 15 games with the Titans in 2019.

EDGE Analysis

After leading the team in tackles for the past two seasons, Woodyard saw a reduced role in 2019. He was on the field for over half of the team's defensive snaps in just four of 15 games, working primarily as a backup inside linebacker. Woodyard will enter the offseason as a free agent, and given his decreased role with the team it would not be a surprise if he were to find a new home for the 2020 campaign and beyond.

Woodyard tallied six tackles, including one sack and two tackles for a loss in Week 6 against the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Woodyard delivered his first sack of the season, hauling down Joe Flacco late in the fourth quarter for a 10-yard loss. One quarter earlier, he had also stuffed Phillip Lindsay in the backfield for a four-yard loss. Woodyard has lost significant playing time this season thanks to the emergence of second-year linebacker Rashaan Evans, though he made the most of his expanded opportunity in Week 6 after Jayon Brown (groin) was forced to leave the contest.

Woodyard (quadriceps) was a full practice participant Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Woodyard was inactive for last Thursday's loss to Jacksonville due to the quad issue, but he appears to have recovered from the injury. The veteran linebacker has played only 19 defensive snaps this season and has primarily worked on special teams.

Woodyard (quadriceps) will miss Thursday's contest against Jacksonville, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Woodyard was unable to practice in any capacity this week. The 33-year-old has been limited to a special-teams role so far this season, so the defense likely won't be impacted very much by his absence.

Woodyard (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Jaguars, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Woodyard didn't participate in practice all week and he may fall victim to the shortened practice schedule leading up to this contest. If he ultimately is ruled out, the Titans' defense won't be affected harshly since the veteran linebacker has been relegated to a special-teams role this season, as Jayon Brown and Rashaan Evans have taken over starting duties.

Woodyard tallied 10 tackles and a sack in Saturday's 25-16 win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Woodyard shed a questionable tag late in the week and led the Titans' in tackles while also upping his sack total to 4.5 on the season. The performance marked the fifth time that he's reached double-digit tackles, though it was the first time he did so since Week 10 against New England. He needs to take a down a ball carrier just once in Week 17 to record his second consecutive 100-tackle campaign.

Woodyard recorded seven tackles in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Woodyard tied for the team lead in tackles, though he didn't manage any other defensive statistics in Thursday's effort. He has now failed to record a sack in four consecutive games, but has tallied a minimum of six tackles in that span.

Woodyard recorded eight tackles in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Woodyard filled his normal role as the one of the Titans' leading tacklers, finishing with fewer than only Adoree Jackson. When healthy, Woodyard has made a consistent impact, recording fewer than than eight tackles only once in a full game.

Woodyard tallied ten tackles and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 34-10 win over the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Woodyard led an active Titans' pass rush Sunday, registering three hits on the quarterback to go along with his 1.5 sacks. He now leads the team with 57 tackles despite missing most of October due to injury. He's been especially productive since returning to the field on Oct. 21, recording 24 tackles and 2.5 sacks across three games.

Woodyard (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Woodyard was sidelined for Tennessee's previous two games due to a shoulder injury, but appears to have gotten fully healthy. Expect the veteran linebacker to return to the starting lineup against the Chargers on Sunday.
