Titans right tackle Jack Conklin starts season active
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee right tackle Jack Conklin will start the season on the active roster after the Titans waived 35 players and placed two others on injured reserve to reach the NFL's 53-man limit.
The Titans announced their roster moves Saturday, a couple hours before the league's afternoon deadline.
Conklin tore his left ACL on Jan. 13 in a divisional playoff loss in New England, and he spent the preseason on the physically unable to perform list, raising questions about how much of the season he might miss. With the Titans choosing not to place Conklin on the PUP list to start the season, the tackle will be available whenever he's deemed ready to play instead of sitting out the next six weeks.
The Titans open the season Sept. 9 at Miami.
