The Titans promoted McNichols from their practice squad Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Tennessee has called up McNichols from the practice squad both of the past two weeks, with the fourth-year back handling a limited role behind starter Derrick Henry in wins over the Broncos and Jaguars. The Titans' decision to bring him back ahead of Sunday's game in Minnesota implies some level of concern about the status of rookie Darrynton Evans, who has yet to make his NFL debut due to a hamstring injury. Once healthy, Evans is expected to replace McNichols as Tennessee's top change-of-pace back.
McNichols reverted back to the Titans' practice squad Monday, according to the league's official transaction report. With Darrynton Evans (hamstring) ruled out of Sunday's contest, the Titans added McNichols to the active roster to give them a little more depth in the backfield. He only ended up playing 11 of 62 offensive snaps but could be called upon again if Evans should miss more time.
McNichols was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Rookie third-rounder Darrynton Evans (hamstring) has been ruled out for a second straight game, so McNichols was brought back up. McNichols logged 13 snaps in the season opener but couldn't reel in his only target, and a similar role should be expected in Week 2 versus the Jaguars.
McNichols has reverted to the Titans' practice squad, per the NFL's official transaction report. McNichols suited up in the Titans' season opener and logged 13 offensive snaps, but he couldn't haul in his lone target. The Boise State product could be called back up if rookie Darrynton Evans (hamstring) can't go in Week 2's game versus Jacksonville.
McNichols was promoted from the Titans' practice squad to the active roster Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. The 24-year-old was added to the practice squad after failing to make Tennessee's season-opening roster, but he'll serve as an extra player ahead of Monday's matchup with Denver. McNichols will provide depth at running back with No. 2 option Darrynton Evans (hamstring) unavailable Week 1, and he'll revert back to the practice squad after the contest.
