When tight end Delanie Walker signed with the Titans as a free agent, the team talked about the big plans they had for him in their offense this season.
They haven’t had much of a chance to implement those plans as Walker has been dealing with a knee problem that required him to undergo a scope shortly before the start of training camp. That led to a spot on the PUP list and a frustrating summer of watching practice for Walker.
Monday brought an end to the status quo. The Titans announced that Walker has been activated for PUP, which means he can start practicing and playing in preseason games. It’s unclear if Walker will be able to play in either of the two exhibitions left on Tennessee’s schedule after spending so much time on the shelf, but the fact that it is a possibility is a step in the right direction for both team and player.
Walker had 21 catches for 344 yards and three touchdowns as a complement for Vernon Davis with the 49ers last season.
