The Titans released Wilkins on Tuesday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Wilkins ended last season on the Titans' practice squad and signed a contract with Tennessee in March, but he's among the first wave of cuts ahead of Tuesday's 85-man roster deadline. The 2018 fifth-round pick played just one offensive snap across five appearances -- split between Indianapolis and Tennessee -- last year after rushing for at least 300 yards and one touchdown in each of his first three seasons in the NFL with the Colts.

Wilkins signed a contract with the Titans on Friday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Wilkins began the 2021 season with the Colts and closed out the year with Tennessee's practice squad. He appeared in just one game for the Titans last year but will have the chance to compete for a backup role behind Derrick Henry heading into 2022.

The Titans returned Wilkins from the practice squad COVID-19 list Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Wilkins was elevated from the Titans' practice squad and appeared on 13 special teams snaps in Week 18 versus the Texans. This was the first game Wilkins appeared in for the Titans this season as the running back has not recorded a carry since Week 14 of 2020.

The Titans placed Wilkins (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Wilkins was elevated to the Titans' active roster in Week 18 but apparently sustained an injury during the regular-season finale. The nature and severity of the issue aren't yet clear, but Jeremy McNichols was signed to the Titans' practice squad Tuesday.
Jan 11, 2022 2:45 PM EST
Wilkins reverted to Tennessee's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: Wilkins was on the field in Week 18 against Houston for 13 snaps on special teams, appearing in his first action of the 2021 campaign. He's yet to record a carry through his first two seasons in the NFL.
Jan 10, 2022 9:20 PM EST
Wilkins was elevated from the Titans' practice squad Saturday.
Analysis: The Titans opted not to active Derrick Henry (foot) off injured reserve which set the stage for Wilkins to make his first appearance with another AFC South squad. Don't expect the lumbering Wilkins to see a significant amount of carries unless the Titans see a sizable lead Sunday in the quest to lock up the No. 1 seed.
Jan 8, 2022 11:01 AM EST
Wilkins signed with the Titans' practice squad Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Wilkins needed about 24 hours to find a new job after he was cut from the Jaguars practice squad Tuesday. The four-year veteran was let go by the Colts on Oct. 30 after his role had turned non-existent behind Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines and undrafted rookie Deon Jackson. Not to mention the veteran Marlon Mack, who is still on the roster. Wilkins will work to make an impact in Tennessee and find his way to the active roster.

Wilkins was cut from the Jaguars' practice squad Tuesday.
Analysis: Wilkins signed with the Jaguars on Nov. 8 after he was waived by the Colts on Oct. 30, in the middle of his fourth year with the club. In a corresponding move the Jaguars signed running back BJ Emmons to their practice squad.
Dec 7, 2021 1:51 PM EST
Jacksonville signed Wilkins to its practice squad Monday.
Analysis: The 27-year-old went unclaimed off waivers after being cut loose by Indianapolis following last week's trade deadline, but he didn't take long to find a new home elsewhere. Though he won't immediately be added to Jacksonville's 53-man roster, Wilkins could be a candidate to join the Jaguars in Week 10 for a game against his former team if lead back James Robinson (heel) is sidelined for a second straight contest. Carlos Hyde, Dare Ogunbowale and Devine Ozigbo are the healthy backs currently on the Jacksonville roster.
Nov 8, 2021 1:39 PM EST
Wilkins has been waived by the Colts.
Analysis: Wilkins will presumably revert to the team's practice squad should he ultimately go unclaimed off waivers. With four healthy backs on the roster, it looks like he was the odd man out.
Oct 30, 2021 11:00 AM EST
Wilkins has recovered after being inactive in Week 7 with an illness.
Analysis: The running back was estimated as a full participant in Wednesday's walkthrough practice and is expected to be active in Week 8 versus the Titans. Wilkins is still unlikely to make any offensive impact as the fourth option behind Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines and Marlon Mack.
Oct 27, 2021 6:29 PM EST
Wilkins (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at San Francisco.
Analysis: Wilkins has missed the past two games while battling the illness, and he'll be sidelined again for this weekend. The 27-year-old will need to return to practice in some capacity before having a chance to return to game action.
Oct 22, 2021 12:38 PM EST
Wilkins (illness) wasn't spotted on the field for Wednesday's practice, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
Analysis: Wilkins hasn't practiced since Oct. 7 due to the illness, missing two games along the way. Unless he gets back on the field in some capacity Thursday and/or Friday, he'll likely find himself on the Colts' inactive list again Sunday in San Francisco.
Oct 20, 2021 12:17 PM EST
Wilkins (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Analysis: Wilkins will try to feel better in time to play against the 49ers in Week 7. He's a distant fourth on the Colts' backfield depth chart behind Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines and Marlon Mack, so Wilkins will need an injury or two in front of him to take on a meaningful role once he's healthy again.
Oct 15, 2021 11:04 AM EST
Wilkins (illness) didn't participate at Wednesday's practice.
Analysis: Wilkins was inactive for Monday's loss to the Ravens due to an illness, and he still hasn't been cleared to practice. It's unclear when the 27-year-old is expected to retake the field.
Oct 13, 2021 3:27 PM EST
Wilkins (illness) won't play Monday night against the Ravens, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: With Wilkins unavailable for Monday's contest, the Colts' Week 5 backfield is in line to be headed by the trio of Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines (shoulder) and Marlon Mack.
Oct 9, 2021 11:57 AM EST
Wilkins was a non-participant at Friday's practice due to an illness.
Analysis: Wilkins was a full participant at Thursday's practice, so he presumably began feeling under the weather following that. More clarity on his status will be gained following Saturday's practice report.
Oct 8, 2021 7:15 PM EST
Wilkins had five carries for 20 yards and two receptions for two yards in Saturday's preseason win over Minnesota.
Analysis: Wilkins will likely have a reserve role and sits fourth on the running back depth chart, but he's been given larger opportunities at times by the coaching staff. Over his 15 regular-season appearances in 2020, Wilkins logged 84 carries for 308 yards and a touchdown while also securing 12 of 16 targets for 105 yards.
Aug 22, 2021 9:27 AM EST
Wilkins (hamstring) returned to practice Friday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Analysis: Wilkins had been held out of practice since Tuesday due to a minor hamstring injury, but he's now been given the green light to rejoin teammates on the field. The 2018 fifth-round pick handled a career-high 84 carries last season, though though his YPC dropped down to 3.7 after sitting at 5.6 and 6.0 in 2018 and 2019.
Aug 6, 2021 7:28 AM EST
Wilkins missed practice Tuesday with a hamstring injury, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Analysis: Wilkins left Monday's practice with the injury, but the specific injury wasn't known until Tuesday. The injury is likely minor, but it's worth monitoring his progress. Wilkins will likely have a reserve role and sits fourth on the running back depth chart, but he's been given larger opportunities at times by the coaching staff.
