Harry Douglas is set to make his season debut this weekend. Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports that the Titans have activated the wideout from the injured reserve. To make room on the roster, the team has waived wide receive Darius Jennings.
After suffering a knee injury, the 33-year-old was placed on the injured reserve prior to the start of the season. The veteran should be a welcome addition to a Titans passing offense that has only hauled in nine touchdowns this season. In 25 games with Tennessee between 2015 and 2016, Douglas compiled 51 receptions for 621 yards and two touchdowns. His best season came in 2013 with the Falcons, when he caught 85 passes for 1,067 yards and two scores.
“He has done well, and obviously he has been in the book,” said coach Mike Mularkey. “He is a trusted vet, and knows how to do things the right way. He came out here and didn’t miss a beat. It doesn’t look like he’s been off for 11 weeks.”
Despite the Titans lack of production, it might be tough for Douglas to see a whole lot of playing time. Even with Jennings out of the picture, the team is still rostering Rishard Matthews, Corey Davis, Eric Decker, Taywan Taylor, and Eric Weems.
Jennings, a 2015 undrafted free agent out of Virginia, has also spent time with the Browns, Bears, and Jets. He didn’t see the field for the Titans this season, although he previously caught 14 passes with Cleveland in 2015.
