Meanwhile, Ian Rapoport reports that Titans RT Jack Conklin is out for the remainder of the regular season, but could return for the playoffs if needed. The good news for Conklin is that this won’t require surgery.
You can expect the Titans to place Smith on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.
Smith, 23, is a former third-round pick of the Titans back in 2017. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $3.175 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $669,000 and $756,625 in the final two years of the agreement.
In 2018, Smith appeared in 13 games for the Titans and caught 20 passes for 258 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
Conklin, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Titans back in 2016. He’ll be entering the third year of his four-year, $15,897,658 and set to make a base salary of $630,000 for the 2018 season.
The Titans have a fifth-year option that they can pick up in 2019.
Conklin spent training camp on the PUP list before being activated at the start of the regular season.
In 2018, Conklin has appeared in nine games for the Titans.
