Pruitt was signed from the Texans' practice squad to the Titans' active roster on Monday, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.
With star tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) placed on injured reserve Monday, the Titans will bring in Pruitt to shore up their depth at tight end for the time being. Pruitt likely won't have much of a role in Tennessee's offense unless another injury occurs.
Pruitt was released by the Texans on Sunday.
Pruitt initially made the roster as a fourth tight end, but was deemed expendable after Houston claimed Natrell Jamerson off waivers from the Saints.
Pruitt missed the final few games of 2018 after landing on injured reserve in December with the calf injury. The 26-year-old was active for only one game with the Texans last season and will have an uphill battle to earn a spot on the team's 53-man roster.
Pruitt (calf) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Pruitt was inactive for Sunday's loss to the Jaguars and will now be sidelined for the final two games of the year as the Texans decided to pull the plug on the 25-year-old's season. Pruitt played in just one game for the Texans, logging 13 offensive snaps.
Pruitt (calf) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Pruitt was looking to play his second game of the season, but Stephen Anderson will once again be the sole tight end on Houston's roster. Regardless, Pruitt likely wouldn't have had much of a ceiling against the Jags, who have been the fifth-stingiest against tight ends this season.
