The Titans announced they waived tight end Taylor Thompson on Thursday. Thompson was a fifth-round pick in 2012. He has a total of 11 career catches for 83 yards.
Titans tight end Taylor Thompson made it to minicamp Tuesday, but it remains to be seen when - or if - he can get back on the field. The fifth round pick in 2012 missed several OTA workouts with issues regarding the same knee he hurt in 2014 to force a stint on injured reserve. He admits he's unsure about his future, which could include surgery. "I'm trying to figure out what the situation is with my knee," he told The Tennesseean. "At this point I am waiting to hear from doctors and then will discuss it with my agent." Thompson caught two passes in his first game last season, but was soon out for the year.
A knee injury has motivated the Titans to place tight end Taylor Thompson on injured reserve. He is out for the season. Thompson caught his only two passes this season in the opener and has not played since Week 3.
Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said safety Coty Sensabaugh (knee) and tight end Taylor Thompson (knee) should return to practice during the team's bye week. Both players missed Sunday's game against the Texans.
Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, running back Antonio Andrews, wide receiver Kris Durham, tight end Taylor Thompson, tackle Will Svitek, defensive lineman DaQuan Jones and cornerback Coty Sensabaugh were ruled inactive Week 8 vs. Houston.
