Found August 20, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
One of the Tennessee Titans top free agent acquisitions this offseason has spent the entire training camp on the team's PUP list because of arthroscopic surgery on his left knee he underwent just before camp. According to ESPN, Delanie Walker passed his physical and returned to practice on Monday. Walker is a welcomed site for a team that already lost starting tight end, Jared Cook, to the St. Louis Rams in free agency. The Titans signed Walker to replace Cook, but Walker was also brought in to bring a physical presence to the tight end position. Walker was one of the top blocking tight ends in free agency, and his arrival in Tennessee will help the Titans ground game improve. Although Walker will start off his return to the team slow. He was limited in practice on Monday and didn't participate in 11-on-11 team drills. "It's good have him off the PUP," Coach Mike Munchak said in regards to Walker, "He did just individual and 7-on-7 today, and then we'll ease him in tomorrow with a little bit more team work." Coach Munchak said they'll make the call later in the week whether Walker makes his team debut this Saturday against the Atlanta Falcons or if he'll wait another week before playing in a game. "We'll talk to him about it and kind of see where he's at and decide as a team what's the best thing," the coach went on, "if we think he needs to play or he wants to play maybe by Wednesday for this Saturday, or by Thursday, then we'll do that." It appears Coach Munchak is trying to remain open about the timetable for Walker's return, but the coach is also being cautious in not determining anything before they see how Walker's knee responds to practice reps.

2013 NFL Preview: Best of the AFC South
