Pair of former SEC players activated for Tuesday Night Football between Titans and Bills
Tonight, a rarity in the NFL will happen. The Titans and Bills will kick off a Tuesday night matchup in Nashville in a game that was postponed due to COVID issues among the Titans organization.
Slowly but surely, the long list of Titans players on the reserve COVID-19 list is shrinking, although Tennessee will still be without several key players for the Bills game.
One of those players, however, was activated from the COVID list in rookie and former LSU defensive back Kristian Fulton.
The No. 61 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Fulton found success during the Titans’ opening stretch at cornerback, notching his first career NFL sack and interception as the Titans started 3-0 before a COVID-19 outbreak on the team shut things down for two weeks. The National Championship winner was placed on the reserve COVID-19 list, but will be available to help the Titans’ secondary rotation against quarterback Josh Allen and the Bills.
Another SEC football alum in former Auburn Tiger Daren Bates will be available to the Titans as well, as the linebacker was activated from the practice squad to help with team depth for the Bills matchup.
Bates went undrafted out of Auburn in 2013, and has been in and out of the Titans practice squad since 2017, with a brief stop in Houston this season.
