Wednesday's NFL injury and roster news for Week 6

Kamalei Correa's wish has been granted.

The Tennessee Titans fulfilled Correa's trade request Wednesday, sending him to AFC South rival Jacksonville, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo reported.

Correa requested the trade following Tuesday night's game against Buffalo, for which he was considered to be healthy and available but was inactive. Correa had been activated from the team's reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday before the game.

The linebacker has played just 39 snaps in 2020. A former second-round pick, Correa has recorded 77 tackles and 8.5 sacks in a little over five professional seasons. He'll be taking his talents to Jacksonville, where the Jaguars currently sit tied with the Houston Texans at the bottom of the division standings.

The Titans also activated wide receivers Adam Humphries and Cameron Batson from the reserve/COVID-19 list with Humphries rejoining the 53-man roster and Batson returning to the practice squad.

Elsewhere in injury and transaction news Wednesday:

  • Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring), who's missed the last two games, was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Packers nose tackle Kenny Clark, who has also missed time with a groin injury, was likewise a full participant. Linebacker Rashan Gary (ankle) and tight end Marcedes Lewis (knee) were each limited.
  • Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told reporters running back Dalvin Cook (groin) is "feeling really good" after talking to him Wednesday, and the team will "just see how it goes" with Cook's status entering Week 6. Cook suffered the injury in Minnesota's loss to Seattle on Sunday night and did not return to the action. Cook currently leads the NFL in rushing with 489 yards, while his Vikings enter Week 6 with just one win to their name in 2020. Cook did not practice on Wednesday, however, nor did cornerback Holton Hill (foot) or Jaleel Johnson (back). Offensive lineman Garrett Bradbury (finger/knee) was limited.
  • New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton has been removed from the team's reserve/COVID-19 list, Garafolo reported per the transaction wire.
  • Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule told reporters Wednesday that running back Christian McCaffrey, who is on injured reserve with an ankle injury, will not be activated this week. This is the first week McCaffrey is eligible to be activated from IR. Rhule also said defensive tackle Kawann Short (shoulder) will require season-ending surgery and be headed to IR. Defensive end Brian Burns (concussion) did not practice, and cornerback Donte Jackson and wide receiver Curtis Samuel were limited.

  • Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said linebacker Chandler Jones will undergo biceps surgery and miss the rest of the season.
  • Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins did not practice Wednesday because of illness. The team said he was sent home with medicine and that repeated tests for COVID-19 have all come back negative. Running back Antonio Gibson (toe) was limited. Washington claimed defensive end Casey Toohill off waivers from the Eagles, who drafted him in the seventh round this year, Garafolo reported. The team later confirmed the claim.
  • New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold won't play for the second consecutive week. Joe Flacco will fill in again for the third-year signal-caller who is dealing with a shoulder injury.
