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.

MyCole Pruitt: 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.

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.

MyCole Pruitt: 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.

MyCole Pruitt: 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.

MyCole Pruitt: 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.

MyCole Pruitt: 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.

MyCole Pruitt: 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.

MyCole Pruitt: 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.

MyCole Pruitt: 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.

December 23, 2019 4:35 PM EST

MyCole Pruitt: 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.

MyCole Pruitt: Records first reception

Pruitt hauled in his lone target for 20 yards in the team's Week 12 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Pruitt hauled in his first catch of the season late in the opening quarter, when he caught a short pass before turning it upfield for a big gain. He also logged a snap rate of 51 percent, the fourth time this season that he's remained on the field for at least half of the team's offensive plays. However, his limited volume in the team's gameplan depresses any statistics he'll be able to record.

MyCole Pruitt: Totals 26 yards

Pruitt hauled in both of his targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 33-17 loss the Colts.

Analysis: Pruitt maintained his minimal role in the passing game even in the absence of Marcus Mariota, tying Luke Stocker for the team lead in targets among tight ends. Since Week 11, Pruitt has caught at least one pass in every game, though he has never surpassed 29 yards and hauled in only one score in that span. If he remains on the team in 2019 -- he's signed through next season -- Pruitt is unlikely to see any type of consistent role in the offense given that both Delanie Walker and Jonnu Smith are good bets to return to health and retake their roles atop the tight end depth chart.

MyCole Pruitt: Hauls in score

Pruitt hauled in two of his three targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 25-16 win over Washington.

Analysis: Pruitt saw a season-best three targets and led the Titans' tight ends with 29 yards and a touchdown. While he did little to capitalize on Jonnu Smith's absence in Week 15 against the Giants, the athletic tight end hauled in a two-yard score to give the team a 19-16 lead late in the fourth quarter. Pruitt will almost certainly be buried on the depth chart heading into the 2019 season, meaning he'll continue to be of little fantasy consequence.

December 22, 2018 9:51 PM EST

MyCole Pruitt: Targeted twice

Pruitt caught one of his two targets for two yards in Sunday's 17-0 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Pruitt failed to make an impact in the absence of Jonnu Smith (knee), hauling in only one pass for the fifth consecutive game. He's also shown little ability to turn his opportunities into significant yardage, averaging just 9.4 yards per catch. As a result, he is not relevant in any format.

December 16, 2018 7:49 PM EST

MyCole Pruitt: Could see expanded role

Pruitt hauled in his lone target for nine yards in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Pruitt has recorded one catch on one target in each of the four games he has been active this season. Though the Titans' tight end corps remains crowded, Jonnu Smith's (knee) season-ending injury could open up a few more targets for Pruitt to close the season. There's little indication he'll be able to take advantage however, as he has averaged just 9.2 yards per catch and recorded zero touchdowns in 32 career games.

December 7, 2018 7:40 PM EST

MyCole Pruitt: Records one catch

Pruitt caught his lone target for 13 yards in Monday's 34-17 loss to the Texans.

Analysis: Pruitt hauled in his catch to convert a first down on the Titans' opening drive of the second half. It was just his second reception of the season -- his first came in Week 11 -- and there is no obvious path to him becoming more involved in the passing game thanks to the emergence of Jonnu Smith and the involvement of Anthony Firkser at the tight end position.

November 26, 2018 9:27 PM EST

MyCole Pruitt: Hauls in first reception

Pruitt caught his lone target for 19 yards in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: Pruitt was one of four Titans' tight ends to haul in a pass Sunday, recording his first catch of the season and as a member of the team. He set up the team's lone touchdown of the game, getting pushed out of bounds at the one yard line. The game was already well in hand for the Colts at that point, making Pruitt's contributions largely meaningless. Don't expect him to be a big part of the Titans' game plan going forward.

November 18, 2018 7:16 PM EST

MyCole Pruitt: Signed to Titans' roster

Pruitt was signed from the Texans' practice squad to the Titans' active roster on Monday, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Analysis: With star tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) placed on injured reserve Monday, the Titans will bring in Pruitt to shore up their depth at tight end for the time being. Pruitt likely won't have much of a role in Tennessee's offense unless another injury occurs.

September 10, 2018 11:43 AM EST

MyCole Pruitt: Lands on Texans practice squad

The Texans added Pruitt to their practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Pruitt failed to earn a spot on the Texans' 53-man roster during final cuts, so he will have to settle for a role on there 10-man practice unit instead. He will presumably spend the season there unless injuries on the main roster open up an opportunity for him.
