Batson reverted to the Titans' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
The 24-year-old was elevated from the practice squad as an extra player for Sunday's win over the Texans, but he returns to the practice squad after catching his lone target for 13 yards on 20 offensive snaps. Batson has three catches for 39 yards in three games this season and, even if he rejoins the active roster, he's unlikely to be a significant factor in the passing game.
Batson elevated to the Titans' active roster Saturday, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.
Batson was activated from the practice squad COVID-19 list earlier this week, and he's expected to suit up Sunday versus the Texans. The Texas Tech product has played two games with the Titans this year, catching both targets for 26 yards and adding an 11-yard carry. He'll mainly operate as wideout depth Sunday.
The Titans activated Batson from the practice squad COVID-19 list Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
The receiver was placed on the list for either testing positive for the virus or coming into close contact with a someone who had. Batson will resume practice squad duties now that he's been cleared to rejoin his teammates.
The Titans placed Batson on the practice squad COVID-19 list Friday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Batson either tested positive for the virus or came into close contact with a someone who had. The wide receiver is one of seven Titans players currently on the COVID-19 list.
Batson reverted back to Tennessee's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.
Batson started and played 45 of 75 snaps on offense but failed to make an impact outside of getting called for holding. That underwhelming performance could dissuade the TItans from calling the 24-year-old Texas Tech product back up.

Batson reverted to the practice squad after playing in Week 2's win over the Jaguars when he caught both targets for 26 yards and recorded an 11-yard carry. He'll play a similar role Sunday versus the Vikings, and he will likely be called up again in Week 4 if A.J. Brown (knee) misses more time as expected.
Batson reverted back to the Titans' practice squad Monday, according to the league's official transaction report.
The Titans called on the second-year pro to bolster the receiving corps Sunday with A.J. Brown (knee) ruled out. Batson chipped in two receptions for 26 yards and one rush for 11 yards across 34 snaps. Should Brown continue to miss time, look for Batson to potentially get called up again.
Batson recorded two receptions for 26 yards and one rush for 11 yards in the Titans' Week 2 win over Jacksonville.
Batson saw an increase in playing time due to the absence of A.J. Brown (knee). His biggest play of the contest came midway through the fourth quarter when he worked deep over the middle for an 18-yard reception. Batson was signed to the Titans' practice squad after being waived on Sept. 7. However, he took advantage of his chance to dress on gameday, finishing fifth on the team in receptions and yards in Week 2.
The Titans signed Batson to the practice squad Monday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Batson spent the entire 2019 campaign on IR, but the Titans will allow him another chance to progress in his development. He participated in the team's offseason program.
The Titans waived Batson on Monday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Batson initially made the 53-man roster but was cut two days later. The 24-year-old receiver spent the entire 2019 season on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury, but he's healthy now and could be a practice-squad candidate.
Batson (undisclosed) signed a one-year contract extension with the Titans on Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Batson spent the entire 2019 campaign on injured reserve due to an undisclosed issue he suffered last July, but the team's decision to re-sign him implies that he's now back to full health. He'll look to secure a depth role at wideout during the upcoming season after he hauled in eight passes for 82 yards across 11 games with Tennessee as a rookie in 2018.
The Titans placed Batson (undiclosed) on injured reserve Wednesday, Chris Perkins of The Athletic reports.
Batson was forced to exit Monday's practice early after taking a spill following a reception. The Titans haven't elaborated on the nature of Batson's setback, but it's apparently serious enough to keep the wideout sidelined for an extended period. Tennessee signed a pair of wideouts (Tanner McEvoy and Papi White) in corresponding transactions following Batson's move to IR.
Batson (undisclosed) left Monday's practice early after falling hard following a reception, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Batson made a notable catch in Monday's practice but unfortunately had to exit after falling hard as a result. The type and severity of the injury is unclear, so it's entirely possible that he's back on the field on Tuesday. Batson is in a battle to make the roster as one of the last receivers, though he could also boost his stock due to his impact on special teams.
Batson could be competing for the last spot on Tennessee's receiving corps, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
The main competition for Batson seems to be Darius Jennings, who logged 11 receptions for 101 yards over 16 games last season in addition to 698 yards and one touchdown on kick returns. Jennings' role on special teams could be his ticket to a roster spot unless Batson takes his performance in training camp to the next level -- the 23-year-old has reportedly already had an impressive offseason. Batson recorded eight receptions for 82 yards on 11 targets last season.
Batson caught eight passes for 82 yards while appearing in 11 games in 2018.
Batson joined the Titans as an undrafted free agent. Though his production was small, the fact that he made the roster for an extended period suggests he's got a chance to earn a larger role in the future. He'll look to earn more than a fringe receiver assignment in 2019.
Batson hauled in one of his two targets for seven yards in Sunday's 26-22 win over the Jets.
Batson recorded at least one catch for his sixth consecutive game, though he has seen extremely limited volume in that span. Given the return of Taywan Taylor and the extensive involvement of Titans' tight ends in the passing attack, that's unlikely to change at any point this season.
Batson hauled in his lone target for 13 yards in Monday's 34-17 loss to the Texans.
The continued absence of Taywan Taylor (foot) kept regular snaps open for Batson, but the slot man once again failed to draw many looks. He's recorded at least one or two catches in five consecutive games but has yet to find the end zone and hasn't exceeded 36 yards in any contest.
Batson caught his lone target for five yards and carried the ball once for one yard in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Colts.
Batson filled the role of third receiver in place of the injured Taywan Taylor (foot), though his contributions were limited. His lone target was from Marcus Mariota, which came midway through the second quarter. Playing in a low-volume offense, Batson is unlikely to see enough targets to be a viable fantasy option even if Taylor remains sidelined.
Batson caught two of his three targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 34-10 win against the Patriots.
With Taywan Taylor sidelined, Batson matched the target totals of both Tajae Sharpe and Jonnu Smith. While his small frame and lack of college production make him a long shot to consistently produce, he does boast impressive athleticism. Though the Titans' offense has shown improvement across the last two weeks, they remain a low-volume passing offense, making his odds even longer to become a meaningful fantasy contributor this season.
Coach Mike Vrabel said Batson would receive more opportunities in the Titans' future games after the wideout recorded two receptions for 21 yards on three targets during Monday's 28-14 win over the Cowboys.
Taywan Taylor's early departure due to a foot injury in addition to Tajae Sharpe taking the field at less-than-full health resulted in Batson earning his most playing time of his brief NFL career in Week 9. The undrafted rookie out of Texas Tech played 30 of the team's 70 offensive snaps, apparently making a positive impression on the coaching staff in the process. Even if Vrabel remains committed to getting Batson more work in three-wideout formations, it's hard to imagine the 22-year-old offering much week-to-week fantasy utility in a weak Tennessee passing attack. Even Corey Davis, the team's top target, has remained an inconsistent contributor with 50 or fewer receiving yards in four of the Titans' eight games.
