Here’s some news from the Tennessee Titans’ practice on Tuesday, as well as an update on outside linebacker Sharif Finch, who was waived by the team over the weekend.
With Christmas falling on a Wednesday, Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel opted to have the first practice of the week on Tuesday instead. Players will have the entire day off tomorrow in order to celebrate the holiday.
The team didn’t hold a traditional practice, though.
According to Jim Wyatt of Titans Online, it was a “scaled back walk-through” and every player dressed for it except for wide receiver Kalif Raymond, who is in the concussion protocol after taking a hit to his head during the Week 16 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Tennessee did not issue an injury report, but will release an estimated version on Wednesday. That means we really won’t have a concrete idea of who is practicing to what extent until after Thursday’s session.
Sharif Finch waived by Bengals
Just one day after former Titans outside linebacker Sharif Finch was claimed off waivers by the Cincinnati Bengals, his time there is already over.
According to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk, Finch was waived after failing his physical upon joining the Bengals.
ESPN’s Field Yates reported on Tuesday morning that the New York Giants and Detroit Lions also put in a claim for the Temple product further down in the priority line, so it’s possible he’ll be picked up by another team.
A once-promising pass-rusher with the Titans, Finch fell out of favor in Nashville and was waived by the team in order to bring in another running back from the practice squad.
Finch totaled two sacks in eight games for Tennessee in 2019, but he also battled injuries and was a healthy scratch several times during the season. At just 24 years old, Finch will likely land on his feet somewhere else at some point.
The Titans brought in two running backs to their practice squad on Tuesday.
Dalyn Dawkins, who was waived by the team on Monday, has been re-signed to the practice squad. Tennessee also added former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Shaun Wilson to the practice squad.
