    Hooker (groin) has no injury designation prior to Sunday's game against the Colts, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Not facing Chiefs

    Hooker (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against Kansas City, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Hooker has struggled with injuries all season long and has made just two appearances thus far, logging 97 snaps while racking up 15 tackles (12 solo) and one forced fumble. His absence means Dane Cruikshank will play a bigger role.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Added to active roster

    Hooker (foot) has been activated from injured reserve and added to the 53-man roster Monday, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com reports.

    Hooker, who was designated to return from injured reserve on Oct. 13, will be available for the Titans during their Monday night clash with the Bills. The 23-year-old was Tennessee's Week 1 starter and will likely assume that role once again now that he is healthy and back with the squad.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Back at practice

    The Titans have designated Hooker (foot) for return from IR, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

    The transaction kicks off a 21-day window wherein Hooker can be evaluated at practice without being added to the active roster. Prior to suffering his foot injury, Hooker started Tennessee's season opener.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Strong start to camp

    Hooker has had a strong start to camp and is expected to take on an increased role this season, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Hooker is expected to start as the team's strong safety after Kenny Vaccaro was released during the offseason. He's taken to the role well early in camp and drew strong reviews for his play Friday. In addition to intercepting a pass, Hooker also played the run well and was active in coverage against tight ends. Hooker played 446 snaps on the defensive side of the ball in 2020 and figures to easily surpass that mark this season.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Moves up depth chart

    Hooker is expected to move into a starting role in 2021 after the Titans released fellow safety Kenny Vaccaro on Wednesday, PaulKuharsky.com reports.

    Hooker started the three games Vaccaro missed last season but otherwise served as the Titans' third safety. The 2019 fourth-round pick made the most of his limited opportunities in his second season, recording 51 tackles, eight pass defenses and four interceptions across only 468 defensive snaps. That production bodes well for Hooker's IDP value in 2021, though fellow Titans safety Kevin Byard (four straight seasons with 16 starts and 84 or more tackles) is a far more reliable choice.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Picks off four passes

    Hooker recorded 51 tackles, one tackle for loss, eight passes defensed and four interceptions across 16 games in the 2020 regular season.

    Hooker was the Titans' third safety for much of the season, though he was pressed into a bigger role in the absence of Kenny Vaccaro. As a result, he saw an increased role in his second season in the NFL and took advantage by improving his statistics across the board. Vaccaro could be cut this offseason with just a $3 million dead cap hit, meaning Hooker could step into a full-time starting role in the 2021 campaign.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Records key interception

    Hooker recorded six tackles, one interception and an additional defensed pass in Week 11 against the Ravens.

    Hooker picked off Lamar Jackson late in the third quarter, ending a 25-yard drive that was approaching midfield. It was his third interception of the season. Hooker has taken on a bigger role in the Titans' defense in his second season and has 30 total tackles as well as six passes defended across 10 contests.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Appears in 16 games as rookie

    Hooker recorded 19 tackles and one tackle for loss across 16 games for the Titans in 2019.

    Hooker played consistently as the backup free safety throughout his rookie campaign, working behind Kevin Byard. With Byard under contract with the Titans through the 2024 season, it's unlikely that Hooker will be able to carve out a major role in the team's secondary in the immediate future.

  • Titans' Amani Hooker: Tennessee bound

    The Titans selected Hooker in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 116th overall.

    The Iowa product is an insurance policy for the oft-injured Kenny Vacarro and should also add some help on special teams. Hooker (5-11 3/8, 210) ran a strong 4.48 40-yard dash at the combine and was productive at Iowa, racking up 11 pass breakups and four interceptions as a junior in 2018. He can also add some thump in the box as a run defender.
