Tennessee Titans place safety Amani Hooker on Injured Reserve
The Tennessee Titans placed safety Amani Hooker on Injured Reserve Tuesday. He will miss at least three games.
Hooker left the season opener Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals with a foot injury and did not return. He caught a pass from Matthias Farley on a fake punt in that game and had four tackles.
Hooker started three games and had four interceptions last season.
The Titans also signed tight ends Austin Fort and Tommy Hudson to their practice squad, and signed kicker Randy Bullock to the active roster from the practice squad Tuesday.
Bullock, in his ninth season, played for the Bengals the last three seasons. He is 168-for-202 on career field goal attempts and has made 215 of 225 point-after attempts.
Fort, a 6-foot-4, 244-pounder, has yet to play in an NFL game. Neither has Hudson, who played for Arizona State. Hudson said after college he plans to one day become a Navy SEAL.
Fort signed with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Wyoming in 2019 but suffered an ACL injury during a preseason game.
That ailment landed him on Injured Reserve for the next two seasons. The Broncos cut him this preseason.
He began his college career as a quarterback. He switched to tight end during his junior year. He had 17 catches for 221 yards and four touchdowns in his final two seasons with Wyoming.
