Tennessee Titans add former LSU DB to COVID reserve
Former LSU star Kristian Fulton is off to a great start to his NFL career, but he received some difficult news recently when the Tennessee Titans rookie was played on the reserve COVID-19 list on Thursday, according to multiple reports including ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Fulton in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars made an interception, and last week against the Minnesota Vikings, he sacked QB Kirk Cousins on a blitz up the middle.

Simulated pressure (Slot CB Kristian Fulton). Get to a four-man rush — with the secondary spinning to Cover 3 post-snap.

The Titans game this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers was postponed on Thursday — after it was initially pushed back from Sunday — because several Titans players and team personnel tested positive for COVID-19.
A two-year starter at LSU, Fulton appeared in 28 games with 25 starts and finished his career with 65 tackles, 25 pass breakups with two interceptions.
The Titans took Fulton at No. 61 overall in the second round. Believed to be a first-round talent Fulton sat out the 2017 season and was suspended by the NCAA for tampering with a drug test. Last season, he started all 15 games and broke up a team-high 14 passes during the Tigers’ national championship run.
Titans added CB Kristian Fulton to the reserve COVID-19 list today, per source.
