Minimal role as receiver

Pruitt recorded five receptions for 49 yards and two touchdowns across 11 games with the Titans in 2020.

Analysis: Pruitt recorded at least one reception in only four games this season, though he did serve as an option in the red zone occasionally. However, he is regarded as a strong run blocker and was utilized primarily in that role by the Titans. Pruitt is on an expiring contract and will hit unrestricted free agency this offseason.

Buried on depth chart

Pruitt one reception on one target for 10 yards in Week 15 against the Lions.

Analysis: Pruitt was buried on the depth chart with the return of Jonnu Smith. Already used primarily as a block tight end, Pruitt has earned only seven targets throughout the entire season.

Plays role in comeback effort

Pruitt recorded one reception on two targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Browns. He also recovered a fumble for a touchdown.

Analysis: Pruitt played on a season-high 44 offensive snaps, partially filling in for the absence of Jonnu Smith (knee). He made his biggest contribution early in the third quarter, hauling in a 22-yard touchdown pass after he beat a Browns' safety down the seam. Pruitt further aided the Titans frenetic comeback effort by recovering an A.J. Brown fumble in the end zone one possession later. Despite finding the end zone, Pruitt will have difficulty commanding consistent volume moving forward.

Full practice to start week

Pruitt (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Radio reports.

Analysis: Pruitt hasn't played since spraining his knee in Week 9, but it appears he has finally put the injury in the rear-view mirror. He'll provide some tight end depth for the Titans against the Browns on Sunday barring a setback.

Dec 2, 2020 1:33 PM EST

Out Week 12

Pruitt (knee) will not play in Sunday's contest against the Colts, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: Pruitt returned to practice this week after suffering a Week sprain on in Week 9. It appears the Titans will not push it, and wait until he has fully recovered. His next chance to suit up will come in Week 13 versus the Browns.

Nov 27, 2020 3:29 PM EST

Returns to practice

Pruitt (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: This was Pruitt's first practice session of any sort since suffering a knee sprain Week 9, so he appears on track to return to the field Sunday versus Indianapolis. The veteran has logged only three catches on four targets this season as Tennessee's third-string tight end, so he's unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact going forward.

Nov 25, 2020 1:13 PM EST

Will miss consecutive game

Pruitt (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Ravens, John Glennon of reports.

Analysis: Pruitt's still recovering from a knee sprain he picked up in a Week 9 win over the Bears, and he hasn't practiced since sustaining the injury. Geoff Swaim will suit up again and act as the No. 3 tight end behind Jonnu Smith and Anthony Firkser on Sunday.

Sits out practice Wednesday

Pruitt (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Pruitt sat out last week's loss to the Colts because of a knee sprain, and he's trending in the wrong direction to start the week. The 28-year-old tight end functions mainly as a blocking specialist, as he's been targeted just four times over six games. If Pruitt's forced to miss this Sunday's matchup against the Ravens, Geoff Swain likely be active once again as the team's No. 3 tight end.

Nov 18, 2020 2:02 PM EST

Ruled out for Week 10

Pruitt suffered a knee sprain during Sunday's win over the Bears and will miss Thursday's game versus the Colts, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Pruitt underwent an MRI on Monday that revealed the knee sprain, but the team's optimistic that he won't miss too much time. Geoff Swaim could see more work behind Jonnu Smith and Anthony Firkser going forward. The door remains open for Pruitt to return Week 11 against the Ravens.

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.

Oct 22, 2020 3:28 PM EST

Misses practice Wednesday

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

Oct 21, 2020 4:44 PM EST

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.

Oct 20, 2020 1:14 PM EST

Added to COVID-19 list

Pruitt has been placed on the Titans' Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Analysis: Pruitt joins the growing number of Tennessee players on the list and at this time it's unclear if the team's scheduled game against the Bills on Sunday will proceed as planned. The Titans/Steelers slated Week 4 contest was postponed and subsequently rescheduled for Oct. 25th.

Oct 8, 2020 1:15 PM EST

Tallies two receptions

Pruitt had two receptions on two targets for 16 yards in Week 3 against Minnesota.

Analysis: Pruitt was on the field for 33 percent of the team's offensive snaps to produce his first multi-catch effort of the season. Anthony Firkser is traditionally more involved in the passing game among the team's backup tight ends, though roles were reversed in Week 3 as Firkser did not see any targets. Pruitt is unlikely to gain a notable role in the passing game unless Jonnu Smith is sidelined.

Finds end zone in opener

Pruitt hauled in his only target for a one-yard touchdown in Week 1 against Denver.

Analysis: Pruitt opened the scoring for Tennessee, hauling in his short touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill in the end zone. Despite the early contribution, Pruitt worked as depth among the tight end corps, playing near an equal amount as Anthony Firkser and behind Jonnu Smith. Pruitt worked primarily as a blocker in past seasons, and that is true again to begin the 2020 campaign.

Sep 15, 2020 10:12 AM EST

Back with Tennessee

Pruitt agreed to a contract with the Titans on Saturday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Analysis: Pruitt appeared in 31 games for the Titans over the last two seasons, and he'll rejoin the team after a brief time on the open market. The 27-year-old totaled 15 catches for 192 yards and two touchdowns, so he's unclear to become a significant factor in the passing game in 2020.

Mar 21, 2020 7:13 PM EST

Four catches in playoffs

Pruitt caught all four of his targets for 28 yards in three postseason games.

Analysis: The 27-year-old worked as a reserve tight end for Tennessee all season, but he found more involvement in the passing game after the Week 11 bye with Delanie Walker (ankle) injured. Pruitt totaled six catches for 90 yards and one touchdown in 16 games this season. He's headed for free agency March and is likely to fill a similar role wherever he lands in 2020.

Jan 26, 2020 8:37 AM EST

Grabs first touchdown

Pruitt hauled in both of his targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 17 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Pruitt worked behind Jonnu Smith as the team's primary tight end, but proved to be more impactful on the stat sheet. His primary contribution came early in the second quarter, when he caught a one-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill. Pruitt failed to contribute for much of the regular season, but did record all six of his receptions since Week 12. At the conclusion of the season, Pruitt will hit free agency and should remain a depth option wherever he lands. However, in the immediate future, he'll look to help Tennessee go on a deep playoff run.

Dec 30, 2019 7:51 AM EST

Two catches in loss

Pruitt hauled in both of his targets for 15 yards in the team's Week 16 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Pruitt recorded both of his catches in the third quarter, the first of which went for five yards in the midst of a drive that ended in a touchdown. He later added a 10-yard reception, logging multiple targets and catches in a contest for the first time this season. He'll look to remain involved in the team's Week 17 matchup against the Texans.

Dec 23, 2019 4:35 PM EST

Another catch

Pruitt caught his only target for a 42-yard gain in the Titans' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Pruitt was on the field for 53 percent of the team's offensive snaps, butt worked primarily as a blocker. His lone impact on the stat sheet came halfway through the third quarter when he caught a deep pass down the right side of the field. It was only Pruitt's second reception of the season, and he remains behind Jonnu Smith and Anthony Firkser on the depth chart.
