NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Titans will be without second-round pick Kristian Fulton for a few weeks after he suffered a knee injury during Sunday’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Adoree’ Jackson who has yet to play this year after suffering a knee injury of his own in the practice week leading up to the season opener could be ready to return Sunday in Cincinnati.

But even with Jackson back the Titans will be incomplete at cornerback without Fulton.

Ideally, the Titans would have Jackson, Malcolm Butler and Fulton as their top three. But with one missing Jonathan Joseph gets pushed into that group. Against Pittsburgh, The Titans rotated Tye Smith with Joseph and used seventh-rounder Chris Jackson after Fulton‘s injury.

Fulton missed a significant chunk of training camp hurt, and Jackson was a surprising choice ahead of him at nickelback on opening day.

It’s not clear yet if Fulton‘s injury will land him on IR, which would mean he would miss at least three games.

He's got 15 tackles, a sack and an interception in five games. He missed the Buffalo game after just coming off the Covid-19 list.
