According to head coach Mike Mularkey, Dodd (foot) is still dealing with some pain in his foot and is not "completely healthy," Jason Wolfe of The Tennessean reports.
Dodd ended his rookie season on injured reserve in early December after playing through a foot ailment for most of the year. The linebacker underwent surgery on his right foot last offseason and it appears he never fully recovered from the procedure, although he was able to play through the pain for nine games. The Titans will likely play it safe with the 24-year-old in hopes that he will be completely pain-free for the beginning of the regular season.
Dodd (foot) was placed on injured reserve Monday, The Tennessean reports.
The 33rd-overall selection in this year's draft, Dodd required offseason surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot. However, he may not have completely recovered since he's still experiencing discomfort. Because a second surgery remains a possibility, it isn't clear if Dodd will be ready for training camp when summer rolls around.
Dodd missed his first professional contest last Thursday against the Titans. However, it doesn't appear likely to extend into a multiweek absence now that he's back practicing without limitation.
Dodd (foot) is listed as inactive for Thursday's matchup with the Jaguars.
Dodd has played in every game this season until now. He was considered questionable heading into the contest, and the short was likely not beneficial in his recovery. Aaron Wallace will presumably see an increased workload providing depth at outside linebacker in Dodd's absence.
Dodd (foot) is active for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Colts, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.
After shaking off the foot injury, Dodd should be cleared to assume his usual depth role at outside linebacker behind starters Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo. Dodd has recorded four tackles and one sack over six appearances this season.
