NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans added two players to their active roster  - WR Tre McBride from their practice squad and WR Andrew Turzilli from San Francisco's practice squad. The Titans placed CB Jason McCourty and WR Justin Hunter on injured reserve.  Additionally, the Titans added OLB Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil and CB Shaquille Richardson to their practice squad and released OLB Markus Pierce-Brewster.

He earned first team all-conference honors in his final two seasons.

Turzilli (6-4, 195) originally signed with the Titans as a undrafted college free agent following the 2015 NFL Draft. He was injured during training camp and placed on injured reserve at final cuts.

Cudjoe-Virgil (6-2, 248, pronounced YAHN-ik KOO-joe VER-jil) rejoins the Titans, where he originally signed as an undrafted free agent this past spring. He was injured in the first preseason game against Atlanta and was placed on injured reserve at final cuts. The team and player agreed to an injury settlement shortly after being placed on injured reserve and he is now eligible to re-sign with the team. In two seasons at the University of Maryland, he totaled 39 tackles, six tackles for loss, five sacks and one interception.
