NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- In less than three NFL seasons, wide receiver Kendall Wright has accumulated 193 receptions for 2,055 yards and 10 touchdowns. In 2014, he is tied with tight end Delanie Walker for the team lead with 35 catches.

Wright is on the verge of hitting a historic milestone. If he notches seven catches this week in Baltimore, he will achieve something no player in franchise history has done—reach 200 receptions within the first 40 games of his career.

Previously, the fastest player to the 200-catch plateau was Charlie Hennigan, who in 1963 hit the mark in his 42nd career game.

Fewest games to 200 receptions, franchise history:

Charlie Hennigan (1960–1963) - 42
Kendall Wright* (2012–2014) - 39

Among all players in franchise history who have reached 200 receptions, Wright is on pace to average the most per game. His 4.95 catches per contest would trump the club's all-time leader, Drew Hill, who had 4.53 receptions per game from 1985–1991.

Most receptions per game among Titans/Oilers players with at least 200 receptions:

4.53 - Drew Hill (106 games, 480 receptions)
4.32 - Charlie Hennigan (95 games, 410 receptions)
4.19 - Haywood Jeffires (123 games, 515 receptions)
3.93 - Earnest Givins (138 games, 542 receptions)
3.71 - Derrick Mason (122 games, 453 receptions)


4.95 - Kendall Wright (39 games, 193 receptions)
