Titans Place DB Malcolm Butler on Injured Reserve
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Titans have placed cornerback Malcolm Butler on injured reserve after he injured his left wrist Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.
Tennessee also re-signed cornerback Tye Smith, added wide receiver Rashard Davis to the practice squad and removed offensive lineman Daniel Munyer from the practice squad.
Butler got hurt when Carolina’s Curtis Samuel landed on his arm while making a touchdown catch late in the first half in Tennessee’s 30-20 loss. The Titans signed the former New England Patriots defensive back in March 2018 to a five-year deal worth more than $60 million, including over $30 million guaranteed.
Smith has played four games for the Titans this season and has made three special-teams tackles. The Titans waived him on Saturday.
Smith has appeared in 19 games overall for the Titans.
