Tennessee Titans should elevate 3 players off of short-term injured reserve

The Tennessee Titans have a few players they can remove from the I.R.
Lost in the mix of position battles and players being moved around on the COVID list, the Tennessee Titans placed five players on short-term injured reserve to start the season.
The decision to let teams place as many players as they want on short-term I.R. was one of a few great moves that the NFL stumbled into during the 2020 season. In the old days, teams would be allowed one or two short-term I.R. slots, but now every player is allowed to go on the short-term I.R. list once per season.
While on the list, the player doesn’t count toward a roster spot and they are allowed to stay on the list for three weeks before the team can get them back to practice. The team then has to decide whether to move that player to long-term I.R. or to activate them and cut another player to get down to the 53-man active roster.
This week, these are the five players that the Tennessee Titans can activate if they so choose:
Three players stand out as guys who can contribute on special teams, play as role players on offense, or maybe both. So, who are they and who corresponding move should the Titans make?
