NASHVILLE – The Titans have placed rookie tackle Isaiah Wilson on the NFL's new Reserve/COVID-19 list, coach Mike Vrabel said in a Zoom conference call on Tuesday.
The Titans selected Wilson in the first round (29th overall) of the 2020 NFL Draft.
The new reserve list category 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. If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Per agreed upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on player's medical status other than referring to roster status. Clubs may not disclose whether player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.
Wilson, the only player from the team's six-man 2020 draft class who hasn't signed, was an All-SEC second team performer for the Bulldogs in 2019 after playing in 11 games, starting 10. He was the co-winner of Offensive "Up Front" Award, given at team's post-season awards gala.
Wilson played every offensive snap last season vs. Kentucky, Florida, Auburn and Texas A&M and he played over 95 percent of offensive snaps in three others: Vanderbilt, Tennessee and Missouri. He missed the Murray State and Arkansas games due to injury but returned to action vs. Notre Dame.
He was on the Outland Trophy Watch List.
