NASHVILLE – Two Tennessee Titans players who started the season on the injured reserve have been allowed to resume training.
Wide receiver Marcus Johnson and rookie safety Brady Breeze will be evaluated in practice over the next few days or weeks. They will not count towards the active roster until it is determined that they are in good health and can participate in matches.
The evaluation period can last up to three weeks.
Additionally, the Titans signed defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson to the practice squad. Undrafted from Bucknell in 2018, he spent time with Chicago, Minnesota, Pittsburgh and Green Bay. He appeared in seven games and was credited with four tackles and one sack
Johnson was one of the most notable performers at training camp, but only played sparingly during the preseason. He appeared in two of the three games and caught a pass for six yards. He was injured in the preseason final against Chicago.
âWe’ll sort of see where he is this week and I think we’ll take him from there,â wide receivers coach Rob Moore said on Tuesday. ââ It’s a process. You can’t go three weeks or four weeks without playing, all of a sudden playing 60 or 70 snaps. So he will be heavily watched, and we will do that assessment daily before the game to see if he can help us or not.
Breeze, a sixth-round pick from Oregon, was injured in the preseason opener in Atlanta, missed the game in Tampa, and only played two special-team snaps (none defending) in the preseason final against Chicago.
