Titans activate CB Chris Jackson from COVID-19 list

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans have activated defensive back Chris Jackson from the COVID-19 list. Jackson rejoins the 53-man roster and is eligible to play this Sunday against the Jaguars.

The timing of this may actually be more significant than you realize. The Titans could be entering Sunday’s game with a bit of a cornerback problem on their hands. Breon Borders popped up on yesterday’s injury report with a hip issue. Hip injuries can be tricky, and I’d say he’s doubtful to play this Sunday. Kristian Fulton and Kareem Orr are not currently on the active roster. They’re still battling back from injuries they suffered weeks ago. Adoree Jackson has been practicing more lately, but his status is still very much up in the air.

That means someone like Jackson or Tye Smith may start on the outside opposite Malcolm Butler this week with Desmond King taking up his regular role in the slot.

Jackson has played some good football considering he’s a seventh-round rookie. Sadly, he’s probably been the most productive member of this rookie draft class so far this season (not including undrafted free agents). Jackson has played in eight games this season, with three starts. He’s recorded 18 tackles, including one tackle for a loss.
