NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans have promoted running back Dalyn Dawkins from the practice squad to the team’s 53-man roster.
Dawkins, who starred at Colorado State and is the nephew of Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins, joins running backs Derrick Henry, Dion Lewis and David Fluellen on the roster.
Fluellen left Sunday’s game against the Patriots with a knee injury. Coach Mike Vrabel has already ruled Fluellen out for Sunday's game vs. the Colts.
To make room on the team’s 53-man roster, the Titans released fullback Jalston Fowler. Fowler was signed leading up to the team’s game at Dallas, but he’s been among the team’s inactives the past two weeks.
Also on Tuesday, the Titans added defensive back Mike Jordan to their practice squad. Jordan, who played collegiately at Missouri Western, has spent time with the Rams, Browns and Giants in the NFL.
Jordan (6-1, 200) entered the NFL as a undrafted college free agent with the Los Angeles Rams in 2016. He spent the majority of his rookie season on the Rams practice squad, before playing in the final five games. Last year he played in 15 games for the Cleveland Browns and two games for the New York Giants this season.
For his NFL career, he has played in 22 games and totaled 37 tackles, five passes defensed and six special teams stops. At Missouri Western State, Jordan earned DII All-America honors.
Dawkins has been with the Titans in some capacity since signing with the team as an undrafted free agent during the offseason.
