NASHVILLE – The Titans have done some roster shuffling in advance of Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On Saturday, the Titans promoted defensive back Kareem Orr and receiver Kalif Raymond from their practice squad to the team's 53-man roster.

To make room, the team waived defensive lineman Matt Dickerson and running back Dalyn Dawkins.

Orr, who played at Chattanooga, was signed by the Titans as an undrafted free agent in May following a tryout during rookie minicamp. He appeared in 20 games with 18 starts over two seasons as Chattanooga, totaling 81 tackles, six tackles for loss, five interceptions, 13 passes defensed, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries.

The Titans initially signed Raymond to the practice squad during Week 17 of the 2018 season, and he's been working on the practice squad in 2019 as well. Raymond has spent time with the Broncos, Jets and Giants. In the 2019 preseason, Raymond had 13 catches for 204 yards.

The Titans have already ruled cornerback Adoree Jackson out for Sunday's game. Orr gives the team added depth in the secondary, while Raymond brings return ability and depth at the receiver position to the roster.

The Titans face the Buccaneers at noon Sunday at Nissan Stadium.
