NASHVILLE – The Titans made a number of transactions on Saturday, just days before the team's first practice of training camp.
Among the moves:
-Defensive back Caleb Farley and center Aaron Brewer were placed on the team's Non-Football Injury list.
-Edge rusher Bud Dupree, tackle Ty Sambrailo and running back Jeremy McNichols were all placed on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list.
-Defensive lineman Abry Jones was placed on the Reserve/Retired list. Jones (6-4, 318), signed by the team in June, played in 105 games, with 52 starts, over the past eight seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He signed as an undrafted free agent with the Jaguars following the 2013 NFL Draft after playing in college at Georgia.
Some good news: Tackle Taylor Lewan and receiver A.J. Brown, who did not practice all offseason while recovering from injuries, were not placed on either the NFI or PUP list at the start of camp. The same goes for receiver Nick Westbrook-Ikhine.
A player who, as a result of football-related injuries, is unable to take part in training camp practices may be assigned to the active/PUP list at the start of camp. Players can then be moved off the PUP list to the active roster at any time prior to the start of the regular season, even after one practice.
If a player finishes preseason on the PUP list, they can be placed on the regular season PUP list.
Players on the PUP list do not count against the 53-man roster, but do count against the 90-man roster limit.
The non-football injury list is for players who suffer an injury not related to NFL football and it keeps them from practicing at the start of training camp. The NFI covers injuries sustained during a player's final college football season.
The rules on when a player on the NFI can get back to the field are the same as for those on the PUP list.
The Titans are scheduled practice for the first time on Wednesday.
