Isaiah Wilson‘s turbulent rookie year may be over, and the latest news involving the Titans first-round pick points to the offensive line prospect needing to surmount hurdles to resume his career.
The Titans placed Wilson on their reserve/non-football illness list Wednesday. This came four days after they suspended him for Sunday’s game. Jack Conklin‘s would-be heir apparent at right tackle, Wilson made his NFL debut in Week 12. He played four snaps against the Colts. That might end up being his only action as a rookie.
“Currently, (Wilson) is dealing with some personal issues, which will take some time for him to work through,” Titans GM Jon Robinson said. “We will continue to help him and support him, with the hope that he can ultimately re-join the team.”
Since the Titans drafted him, Wilson has been arrested for DUI, received a trespass warning for attending a party at Tennessee State and twice landed on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list. Former swing man Dennis Kelly has worked as Tennessee’s right tackle starter, and that status does not look to change in the near future. Wilson is under contract through 2023, but the Georgia product’s career can be considered on hold.
