Titans Activate Punter Brett Kern from Reserve/COVID-19 List While Also Making Other Moves


NASHVILLE – The Titans on Saturday activated punter Brett Kern from the team's Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Kern rejoins the 53-man roster and is eligible to play on Sunday against the Texans.

Also on Saturday, the Titans activated kicker Sam Sloman and outside linebacker Brooks Reed from the practice squad for Sunday's game. Both players will revert to the practice squad on Monday.

A three-time Pro Bowler, Kern has punted 36 times for a 45.8-yard average in 2020, with a 41.4-yard net. He's put 21 punts down inside the 20-yard line this season.

Sloman, signed to the practice squad in November, kicked in the Rams' first seven games this season and connected on 8 of 11 field goals and 18 of 21 extra point attempts. Sloman played collegiately at Miami (Ohio).

The Reserve/COVID-19 list was created for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. Clubs may not disclose whether the player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19. Under the rules for Reserve/COVID-19, teams are required to address the player's roster status once that player has fulfilled the protocol for their circumstance.

The Titans face the Texans at 3:25 CST on Sunday in Houston.
