The Titans signed Pruitt to their active roster Monday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. Pruitt was elevated to the Titans' active roster ahead of Week 1 and will stick on the 53-man roster for awhile. He has replaced Tommy Hudson on the active roster as the primary backup behind Geoff Swaim and Anthony Firkser
Pruitt was elevated from the Titans' practice squad ahead of Sunday's Week 1 matchup against the Cardinals, Paul Kuharsky of PaulKuharsky.com reports. Pruitt joined the Titans' practice squad after he was cut by the 49ers at the end of August. He'll join the active roster to provide depth at tight end in the season opener since Tommy Hudson (toe) has been ruled out.
Pruitt has signed on with the Titans' practice squad, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Pruitt missed out on a 53-man roster spot with the 49ers but found a new home to continue his NFL pursuit after just a few days. The signing makes sense for Tennessee given that he's played each of the last three seasons in Nashville.
The 49ers released Pruitt on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Pruitt joined the Niners in June and then injured his calf late in July. The tight end was forced to miss about a month of training camp, which made him fall on the team's depth chart. On Tuesday, the 49ers cut Pruitt, as they already have enough quality options at tight end in George Kittle and Ross Dwelley.
Pruitt (calf) is practicing Thursday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports reports. Pruitt missed a significant portion of training camp due to a calf injury, but he's now back on the field. The sixth-year pro is competing for a depth gig in San Francisco's tight-end corps, where George Kittle stands as the unquestioned No. 1 option.
