Kai Forbath, Will not play Monday

Forbath has not passed COVID-19 protocols and will not play in Monday's contest as a result, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Forbath only arrived to the Rams' facilities Sunday so it was never possible for the veteran kicker to pass through protocols in time to make it on the active roster. Samuel Sloman will get one more week as the starter, although given his struggles (three missed extra points along with two field-goal attempts in 2020) it certainly appears as if Forbath would have the upper hand on the starting job once he can officially practice.

MyCole Pruitt, Returns from illness

Pruitt (illness) was a full participant during Thursday's practice session, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: The 28-year-old tight end resided on the reserve/COVID-19 list for 12 days beginning on Oct. 8th, but he sat out Wednesday's session with an illness immediately after being activated. Whether that stemmed from lingering effects of the virus is unclear, but Pruitt has since been activated to the Titans' active roster while adhering to the NFL's COVID-19 protocols. After fielding 25.7 offensive snaps per game Weeks 1 through 3, Pruitt will now see his first game action since Sept. 27 as Tennessee gets ready to face Pittsburgh.

Kai Forbath, Status uncertain for Week 7

Head coach Sean McVay said that Forbath won't be able to report to the Rams' facility until Sunday at the earliest while he completes COVID-19 intake testing, J.B. Long of the Los Angeles Rams Radio Network reports.

Analysis: Los Angeles signed Forbath off the Bears' practice squad earlier this week, presumably to provide competition for struggling rookie kicker Samuel Sloman, who has already missed five kicks (two field goals, three extra points) through the Rams' first six games. Forbath's delayed arrival might hurt his chances of overtaking Sloman in Week 7, but McVay noted that the former could "theoretically" still kick for the Rams in Monday's game against Chicago. More clarity on the Rams' kicking situation should arrive by the end of the weekend.

MyCole Pruitt, Misses practice Wednesday

Pruitt (illness) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

Analysis: Pruitt was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, meaning he cleared the NFL's COVID-19 protocols. It's unclear if his current illness is related to the virus.

MyCole Pruitt, Lifted from COVID list

The Titans activated Pruitt from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Pruitt has cleared the necessary protocols and will return to team activities. The 28-year-old tight end maintained a consistent run-blocking role through the first three games of the season, and he could resume those duties this Sunday versus the Steelers.
