Kendall Wright not convinced of concussion

September, 19, 2013
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- While Kendall Wright says he doesn't have a concussion, the Tennessee Titans wide receiver also said he doesn't have a medical degree.

The Titans' injury report lists him with a concussion. Team officials say it's not been an obvious diagnosis, but based on symptoms that surfaced Tuesday they've treated him as if he is concussed.

Friday he will see a doctor before practice, the Titans expect him to be cleared and participate, then to play Sunday against the Chargers.

Wright said he's never had a concussion before, which allows for the question about how he can judge whether this is one. He took a big head shot from Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson Sunday and bounced right up.

"I'm not a trainer, but I know I don't have a concussion," he said.

If Wright isn't cleared and doesn't return, the Titans would use Damian Williams as their third receiver and Justin Hunter fourth. Williams missed last week with a hamstring injury.
