NASHVILLE – The Titans on Tuesday released safety Bradley McDougald and defensive lineman Anthony Rush.
A nine-year veteran who played previously with the Chiefs, Buccaneers, Seahawks and Jets before joining the Titans, McDougald started Sunday's game against the Seahawks, and he played in 40 of the team's 54 defensive snaps. He was credited with two tackles against the Seahawks.
Rush, signed by the Titans back in July after previously spending time with the Eagles, Raiders, Seahawks, Bears and Packers after entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent from Alabama-Birmingham after the 2019 draft, played in one defensive snap for the Titans on Sunday, along with four snaps on special teams.
Last week, the Titans placed safety Amani Hooker on Injured Reserve, which means the team is down to safeties Kevin Byard, Dane Cruikshank and Matthias Farley on the current 53-man roster, but with other defensive backs also capable of playing the position. Rookie safety Brady Breeze is also on Injured Reserve.
The Titans face the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at Nissan Stadium.
