The saga of Vic Beasley Jr. took another twist Tuesday with the Titans placing the outside linebacker on the Non-Football Injury list.

Beasley is eligible to rejoin the team as soon as he passes a physical.

It has not been a glorious start to Beasley’s career in two-tone blue who after signing for $9.5-million including $6-million to sign missed the first 10 days of training camp for an unexcused and unexplained reason.

Gilbert was not injured participating in an activity forbidden by the team.

The TItans also waived/injured linebacker Reggie Gilbert. Gilbert played 11 games for the Titans in 2019 and had 24 tackles, a sack and seven QB pressures.

The Titans traded a 7th round pick to Green Bay last season to bolster their depth at outside linebacker.
