The Tennessee Titans announced that they’ve placed second-round DE Kevin Dodd on the active/PUP list.
Titans HC Mike Mularkey explained that Dodd didn’t do conditioning and will be tested every couple of days, so his stay on the list should be brief, per Terry McCormick.
Dodd wound up having a screw inserted into his foot back in May.
Players placed on the active/PUP list can return to practice once activated. However, if they remain on PUP list to start the regular season, they would miss at least the first six weeks.
Dodd, 22, was taken with the No. 32 overall pick by the Titans. At the start of day two, reports indicated that teams including the Cowboys were trying to trade up for pass rushers including Dodd. However, the Titans elected to stay where they were and grab another edge rusher for their defense.
According to OverTheCap.com, Dodd receives a four-year contract worth $6,552,304 to go along with a signing bonus of $2,965,312.
During his four-year college career at Clemson, Dodd recorded 82 tackles, 26.5 tackles for a loss, 12.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and a recovery.
