Titans Waive OLB Victor Ochi With Injury Designation

The Tennessee Titans announced that they’ve waived OLB Victor Ochi with an injury designation on Sunday.

Ochi, unfortunately, suffered a torn ACL last Friday that will end his 2017 season.

Should Ochi pass through waivers unclaimed, he would revert to the team’s injured reserve list on Monday.

Ochi, 23, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Stony Brook back in May. He was, unfortunately, cut loose coming out of the preseason, as the Ravens’ trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

The Jets later signed him to their practice squad a few weeks into the regular season and was on and off of the unit the Chiefs signed him to their active roster this past January. Kansas City waived Ochi shortly after this year’s draft and he later signed on with the Titans a few months ago.

In 2016, Ochi appeared in two games and recorded one tackle for the Chiefs.

During his career at Stony Brook, Ochi recorded 135 tackles, 19.5 sacks, 34 tackles for a loss and three forced fumbles over the course of 35 games played.
