Titans activate Treylon Burks, don’t promote a quarterback

It looks like Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill is good to go for Sunday’s game against the Broncos and first-round pick Treylon Burks will be available to catch some of his passes.

Burks was activated from injured reserve on Saturday after missing the last four games with a foot injury. Burks returned to practice this week and the wideout will try to build on the 10 catches for 129 yards he posted in the first four weeks of the season.

The Titans did not elevate quarterback Logan Woodside from the practice squad, which leaves Tannehill and Malik Willis as the only quarterbacks on the active roster for this weekend. Tannehill could serve as the backup, but he practiced all week and that is reason to believe he’ll be back in the starting lineup after missing two games with an ankle injury.

Defensive back Elijah Molden was also activated from injured reserve while defensive lineman Larrell Murchison and wide receiver C.J. Board have been elevated from the practice squad. Linebacker Zach Cunningham and defensive back Josh Thompson were placed on injured reserve to round out the day’s moves.

  1. I’m not going to beat a dead horse talking about how disappointing Treylon Burkes has been but I can’t help but think there is a pretty good chance we would have 2 more wins (NYG, KC) if AJ was still here.

    As a lifelong Oilers/Titans fan, our WR core has been incredibly lackluster since our move to Nashville with missed draft picks and FA whiffs. To finally have a true stud at WR only to see him traded away a couple of years later has been pretty cruel to stomach

  2. I hope Tannehill has a great game this week. The Titan’s and their fans deserve to see a team that is better balanced offensively. A win for them is a win for my team (Seahawks) come next April. So….Go Titans!
