WATCH: Titans place Delanie Walker on injured reserve

Sports

Nashville, Tenn. (WKRN) – More moves this week as the Tennessee Titans signed K Ryan Santoso and placed tight end Delanie Walker on injured reserve.

Santoso (6-5, 258) entered the NFL as an undrafted college free agent in 2018 with the Detroit Lions. He spent the offseason and preseason with the Lions in both 2018 and 2019 and connected on 3-4 field goals in preseason games.

Veteran player Delanie Walker has been having ongoing problems with the same ankle he fractured last season and after returning to practice earlier this week, he said the ankle was still tender.

“Unfortunately we probably just didn’t think that we were going to be able to get him back for some meaningful snaps it’s disappointing for me and this team. he worked extremely hard to come back and just wasn’t able to,” said Mike Vrabel.

The Titans have been successful so far with its other tight ends. Jonnu Smith, MyCole Pruitt, and Anthony Firkser have all been integrated in the game plan throughout the last few weeks. They still will rely on Walker for his veteran leadership on the sideline.

“The last couple weeks he has been an integral part of things, helping us on the field, telling us what he sees and how he would run a certain route or block a certain play. He’s been great for us these last few weeks,” said MyCole Pruitt.

Walker finishes the 2019 season with 21 receptions for 215 yards and two touchdowns in seven games played.

The Titans face the Colts on Sunday in Indianapolis.
