Pruitt recorded three receptions on three targets for 43 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Seahawks.
Analysis: Pruitt benefitted from the absence of Anthony Firkser (knee) to log 55 snaps. While many of the targets of the offense were funneled to Julio Jones, A.J. Brown and Derrick Henry, Pruitt still served as the team's primary pass-catching tight end. Pruitt was particularly involved in the team's first drive of the second half, when he logged two of his receptions for 21 yards. Firkser did participate in two limited practices prior to being inactive for the Week 2 matchup, so he could be back for a Week 3 contest against Indianapolis.

Pruitt was elevated from the Titans' practice squad ahead of Sunday's Week 1 matchup against the Cardinals, Paul Kuharsky of PaulKuharsky.com reports.
Analysis: Pruitt joined the Titans' practice squad after he was cut by the 49ers at the end of August. He'll join the active roster to provide depth at tight end in the season opener since Tommy Hudson (toe) has been ruled out.
Sep 11, 2021 5:53 PM EST
Pruitt has signed on with the Titans' practice squad, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Pruitt missed out on a 53-man roster spot with the 49ers but found a new home to continue his NFL pursuit after just a few days. The signing makes sense for Tennessee given that he's played each of the last three seasons in Nashville.

The 49ers released Pruitt on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Pruitt joined up with the Niners in June and then injured his calf late in July. The tight end was forced to miss about a month of training camp which made him fall on the team's depth chart. On Tuesday, the 49ers cut Pruitt as they already have enough quality options at tight end, in George Kittle and Ross Dwelley.

Pruitt (calf) is practicing Thursday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports reports.
Analysis: Pruitt missed a significant portion of training camp due to a calf injury, but he's now back on the field. The sixth-year pro is competing for a depth gig in San Francisco's right end corps, where George Kittle stands as the unquestioned No. 1 option.
Aug 26, 2021 8:27 AM EST
Coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday that Pruitt (calf) will miss some time, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Pruitt, who joined the 49ers in June, looks to be competing for a depth role in San Francisco. George Kittle is unquestionably the 49ers' top tight end, and Ross Dwelley seems like the favorite for the No. 2 role, but if he can return to practice soon Pruitt could very well compete with Charlie Woerner and Josh Pederson for the No. 3 spot.

Pruitt will sign a contract with the 49ers, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.
Analysis: Pruitt has a lengthy stay in the NFL behind him and is coming off of five catches for 49 yards and a pair of touchdowns last season with the Titans. He should add some more depth to the 49ers' tight end room heading into training camp.
Jun 2, 2021 2:57 PM EST
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.
Jan 7, 2021 9:52 PM EST
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.
Dec 20, 2020 8:34 PM EST
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.

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
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
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
Pruitt (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Ravens, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com 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.
Nov 20, 2020 1:20 PM EST
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
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.
Nov 9, 2020 1:31 PM EST
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
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.
Oct 21, 2020 4:44 PM EST
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
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.
