Smith re-signed with the Titans on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Smith was waived Saturday so the team could make room for Joshua Kalu on the roster, but the 26-year-old didn't have to wait long to be welcomed back into the fold. He has made two tackles (one solo) in four games while playing purely special teams for the Titans this season.
Smith was waived by the Titans on Saturday.
Smith saw action in four games this season and exclusively played special teams. Josh Kalu (undisclosed) was activated off injured reserve in a corresponding move.
Smith signed a one-year contract with the Titans on Wednesday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Smith spent all of last season on injured reserve after getting hurt during training camp. In his last healthy season with Tennessee in 2017, he notched 11 tackles and one interception across 15 games. A depth role awaits him in 2019.
Smith has landed on injured reserve, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Smith appeared in 15 games for the Titans last season, recording 15 tackles after playing in just four contests during his first two seasons as a pro. There's no word on the extent of his injury at this point, but he will obviously be sidelined for an extended period of time and could be a candidate to miss all of 2018. If that's the case, he would likely return in 2019 needing to battle for a job should the Titans elect to re-sign him.

Smith has been dealing with a broken hand since early September but seems to be on track to play against the Seahawks on Sunday. The 24-year-old will likely return to his role of a reserve cornerback and special teams contributor if he is able to play.
Smith (hand) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Smith failed to practice all week after suffering a broken hand, and while players have fought through the injury before, the Titans will elect to not take any risks with the defensive back this weekend. Kalan Reed could play some additional snaps as a result of Smith's absence, but given that he was a depth option in the secondary, it likely won't have much of an impact on the rotation.
Smith has a broken hand and his status for Sunday's game against the Jaguars remains in limbo, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.
Players have fought through a fractured hand to take the field before, but the chances of a cornerback doing so and remaining effective appear low. The extent of the break hasn't been outwardly publicized, so the assumption is that it's a small fracture. Smith's status for Sunday appears to be as questionable as questionable gets, but if he doesn't play, Kalan Reed could be asked to help more as a depth corner.
The Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.
Picks that have signed are:
Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.
The only picks yet to sign with the team are second-round defensive end Frank Clark and third-round receiver Tyler Lockett.
