ST. LOUIS–The Tennessee Titans have the top seed in the AFC heading into the final week of the National Football League season despite injuries to key players like Derrick Henry and Julio Jones, but another injury suffered Sunday will keep a St. Louis area high school football product on the sidelines indefinitely.
The Tennessee Titans are getting reinforcements from the COVID-19 list. Wide receiver Julio Jones, linebacker Jayon Brown and offensive tackle Kendall Lamm were activated from the reserve list, the team announced Monday. The Titans no longer have any players from their 53-roster in COVID-19 protocols. They also received a COVID...
Tennessee Titans tight end MyCole Pruitt suffered a gruesome season-ending injury to his right ankle against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon and missed the remainder of the game. Pruitt’s ankle rolled up in a pile when he was blocking on a rushing attempt by D’Onta Foreman. It was clear...
Pruitt will have surgery on his ankle Monday and will miss extended time, John Glennon of SI.com reports. Given how the injury looked and this subsequent prognosis, it sounds as if Pruitt is unlikely to return even later in the playoffs. He ends the regular season with 14 catches on 18 targets for 145 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games. Anthony Firkser should see a bump in playing time, and the Titans will likely add a third tight end to the roster shortly.
Pruitt recorded one catch on one target for one yard in Sunday's 19-13 loss to Pittsburgh. Pruitt was on the field for 34 percent of offensive snaps, good for second among the team's tight ends. However, his involvement in the passing game was minimal, and he has now been limited to one or fewer receptions in his last six contests.
Titans’ RB Derrick Henry records his first NFL passing touchdown with trick play throw to MyCole Pruitt
Tennessee Titans’ running back Derrick Henry is again having a great season, picking up 783 yards and 10 touchdowns on 162 rushing attempts through his first six games, plus 16 receptions for 138 yards. But in his seventh game of this season Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs, Henry did something unusual; he passed for a touchdown. With the Titans in first and goal from the Chiefs’ five, quarterback Ryan Tannehill lined up under center like normal, but then split out left to set up a direct snap to Henry. That usually winds up being a rushing play, and Henry took a few steps forward like he was going to run, but then instead threw a pass to open tight end MyCole Pruitt at the back of the end zone:
Taking on the Kansas City Chiefs in the early slate of Sunday’s Week 7 action, it didn’t take long for
Pruitt recorded two receptions on three targets for 27 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-3 win over Kansas City. Pruitt matched his highest target total of the season. He got the Titans on the board with a five-yard touchdown reception from Derrick Henry on a trick play early in the first quarter. Pruitt also hauled in a 22-yard pass early in the second quarter to record his second gain of more than 20 yards on the campaign. Though he's now found the end zone in consecutive contests, Pruitt does not have a consistent enough role in the passing game to be a trustworthy producer.
Pruitt (calf) is practicing Thursday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports reports. Pruitt missed a significant portion of training camp due to a calf injury, but he's now back on the field. The sixth-year pro is competing for a depth gig in San Francisco's right end corps, where George Kittle stands as the unquestioned No. 1 option.
Coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday that Pruitt (calf) will miss some time, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Pruitt, who joined the 49ers in June, looks to be competing for a depth role in San Francisco. George Kittle is unquestionably the 49ers' top tight end, and Ross Dwelley seems like the favorite for the No. 2 role, but if he can return to practice soon Pruitt could very well compete with Charlie Woerner and Josh Pederson for the No. 3 spot.

Jonnu Smith, Anthony Firkser, Geoff Swaim, MyCole Pruitt. Who? Those were the four leading tight ends for the Tennessee Titans last year. Smith and Firkser are probably familiar names to many fans, and Swaim may be known by WFT fans from his days in Dallas. Pruitt wasn’t a name I was familiar with before the last tight end I was pining for was taken off the free agency board:
