Two new members of the Titans will be held out of the team’s practices to start training camp.
Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that tight end Delanie Walker and wide receiver Kevin Walter will both start camp on the physically unable to perform list. They’re free to come off that list at any time, but aren’t permitted to take part in full practices until they do and they aren’t permitted to go back on the training camp or regular season versions of the list once they do.
Walker hurt his knee during spring work and had a scope to repair the damage. Walter had arthroscopic surgery on his back and didn’t practice during the June round of OTAs as a result. Walter is expected to fill a depth role in the team’s receiving corps while Walker is being counted on as the starting tight end, so any extended absence on his part would leave the Titans thinner than they’d like.
Safety Robert Johnson will also start camp on the PUP list while first-round pick Chance Warmack remains unsigned as the Titans report for camp on Wednesday.
