Titans Agree to Terms with Running Back Lenard Tillery


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans have agreed to terms with running back Lenard Tillery.

Tillery (5-10, 188) played collegiately at Southern University, and spent time with the Los Angeles Rams after being signed as an undrafted college free agent in 2017. He was placed on injured reserve at the final cuts and then waived by the team this past May.

As a senior at Southern, Tillery ran for 1,665 yards, with 13 touchdowns and 1,972 all-purpose yards. Tillery was a three-time 1,000-yard rusher at Southern University. For his 43-game college career, he tallied 4,856 rushing yards on 847 carries (5.7-yard average) and 45 touchdowns.

Tillery joins running backs Derrick Henry, Dion Lewis, David Fluellen, Akrum Wadley and Dalyn Dawkins on the team's 90-man roster.

Because of an injury, Wadley did not play in Saturday's preseason game at Pittsburgh.

By Saturday, all NFL teams must be down to the 53-man limit for the regular season.

The Titans face the Vikings in the team's final preseason contest on Thursday at Nissan Stadium. The team's regular season opener is on September 9 at Miami.
