NASHVILLE – The Titans have moved cornerback Kristian Fulton to the team's "Designated for Return from Injured Reserve" list.
This designation opens up a 21-day window for Fulton to practice with the team, and he will not count against the team's 53-man roster until being activated from Injured Reserve.
Meanwhile, after losing practice squad quarterback Matt Barkley to the Panthers – Barkley is joining Carolina's active roster – the Titans signed former Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan to the team's practice squad to take his place.
The Titans have also signed former Tennessee State receiver Chris Rowland to the team's practice squad.
Fulton, who started the first five games of the season, hasn't played since the October 10 game at Jacksonville. He'll remain on IR while practicing, until he's activated to the active roster. His return would give the defense an extra boost.
Hogan (6-3, 218), drafted in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Chiefs, has spent time with the Chiefs (2016), Browns (2016-17), Washington Football Team (2018), Broncos (2018) and Bengals (2020) in the NFL. He's played in eight career games and completed 60-of-101 passes for 621 yards with four touchdown and seven interceptions.
As a college player at Stanford, he played in 46 games and totaled 9,385 passing yards and 1,249 rushing yards.
Rowland (5-8, 170), who attended Ravenwood High in Brentwood before playing at TSU, signed with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent following the 2020 NFL Draft. He spent time on Atlanta's practice squad and active roster in 2020 and was waived by Atlanta this past August.
At TSU, Rowland broke the Historically Black College and University record for most receptions in a single season, a record which was previously set by Jerry Rice. Rowland set a the HBCU record with 104 receptions in 2019, eclipsing the mark of 103 set by Rice in 1984. He was named first-team all-conference as both a receiver and kick returner and received the Deacon Jones Trophy. In his career at TSU, Rowland played in 40 games and totaled 194 receptions, 2,578 receiving yards, 46 punt returns and 74 kickoff returns.
The Titans face the Saints on Sunday at Nissan Stadium.
