KANSAS CITY, Mo.- The Tennessee Titans, needing special teams help, promoted linebacker Collin Allred from their practice squad to the 53-man roster on Saturday.
To make room on the active roster, the Titans placed wide receiver Brandon Jones on injured reserve with a groin injury. Jones had not played since being injured early in the Titans’ win over the Houston Texans two weeks ago.
The need to add Allred to the active roster stemmed from Gilbert Gardner’s calf injury suffered in Friday’s practice. Gardner will be out for Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
