Titans' Woods: Goal for 2022 return is to be in 'tip-top shape'

Tennessee Titans wideout Robert Woods is eager to make his return after suffering a season-ending knee injury in 2021.

Woods, who tore his ACL with the Los Angeles Rams during a November practice, is feeling good with where his rehab is ahead of the next campaign.

"I actually feel like they're kind of holding me back a little bit," Woods said with a smile, according to team reporter Jim Wyatt. "I am trying to get back as well as I can, just doing everything (trainer) Todd Toriscelli has me doing, trying to stay focused and be patient with it. Right now, I feel really, really good, getting going, being able to do some things.

"But really, my main goal is to be ready and be back in tip-top shape."

Woods, 30, became the odd man out in L.A. after the Rams signed Allen Robinson. L.A. took on $8.6 million in dead money by sending Woods to Tennessee for a 2023 sixth-round selection.

The skilled receiver's arrival provides the Titans with a veteran presence in their receiving corps after they traded star wideout A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles and released Julio Jones.

The Super Bowl LVI champion is expected to headline a pass-catching group that features Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and 2022 first-round pick Treylon Burks.

Woods hauled in 45 receptions for 556 yards and four touchdowns prior to his injury last season. He surpassed the 1,000-yard mark twice in his career (2018, 2019) and was just 64 yards shy of eclipsing it in 2020.
