NASHVILLE – The Titans waived linebacker Josh Smith on Saturday.
Earlier in the day, Smith was activated from the team's Reserve-COVID 19 list.
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.
Smith, who played collegiately at Vanderbilt, spent three weeks of the 2019 regular season and all of the postseason on the Titans practice squad. He was re-signed by the team in January of 2020.
