NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee's banged-up wide receiver group is getting even thinner with the Titans placing rookie Kyle Philips on injured reserve and signing Chris Conley off Kansas City's practice squad Tuesday as a replacement.
The Titans now have 13 players on injured reserve, a group that already included their top draft pick this spring in Treylon Burks and second-year receiver Racey McMath. Tennessee currently has four receivers on the roster with the addition of Conley as the Titans (4-2) prepare to visit Houston (1-4-1) on Sunday.
Philips was Tennessee's fifth-round pick out of UCLA, and he has eight catches for 78 yards despite missing one game with an injured shoulder. He was added to the injury report after apparently hurting a hamstring last Friday and was scratched from the Titans' win over Indianapolis.
The 6-foot-3 Conley has started 62 of 102 games in eight seasons, and he has 213 catches for 2,807 yards and 15 touchdowns. Conley was a third-round pick out of Georgia by the Chiefs in 2015 where he spent four seasons.
He was with Jacksonville in 2019 and 2020 and Houston the past two seasons where he had 22 catches for 323 yards and two TDs.
