RB - DET
Week 7 Outlook
The Titans waived RB Dalyn Dawkins.
Dawkins is a practice-squad player who was slated to be third on the Titan's RB depth chart. Perhaps the team will sign a veteran back in the coming weeks.
Dalyn Dawkins carried the ball nine times for 24 yards on Sunday as the Titans lost to the Saints by a 38-28 score in Week 16 action.
Dawkins was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad before the game with Derrick Henry out with an injury. The 24-year-old running back did not do much with his chance and if Henry is back in Week 17 could find himself without a role.
Dalyn Dawkins carried the ball 13 times for 117 yards against the Bears in the team's preseason finale Thursday. He also added four receptions for 31 yards and two touchdowns.
Dawkins is fighting for a roster spot and may have secured the fifth spot on the depth chart at running back. If the 24-year-old does not make the Titans expect him to end up on someone's practice squad.
Dalyn Dawkins carried the ball 10 times for 35 yards in the team's first preseason game against the Eagles. He also caught two passes for four yards.
Dawkins spent time on the Titans practice squad last season and is hoping to make the roster this year. The 24-year-old RB is currently fifth on the depth chart and will need a good preseason.
