With just less than eight days before the season opener, the Titans have their starting quarterback and backup running back available to practice once again.
QB Ryan Tannehill and RB Jeremy McNichols were activated off of the team’s Reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday afternoon. Placed on the list on August 26th and 24th respectively, Tannehill spent nine days out while McNichols spent 11.
Returning in less than 10 days means Tannehill must have tested out of the protocol, an option for return available to all vaccinated players. If a player has received a vaccine and takes two negative Covid tests 24 hours apart, they may return to action before the 10 day minimum quarantine period.
Having these offensive pieces back and available to practice this week is huge for Tennessee. They will prepare to take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1, and they’ll have their QB1 running the first team reps. This will presumably be the first time all preseason that all of the Titans offensive weapons will get to practice full-speed together.
The Titans host the Cardinals Sunday, September 12th at Nissan Stadium.
