Reynaud may have secured his spot on the Titans' roster.
This weekend marks the last slate of games for NFL hopefuls before teams must cut down their rosters down to 75 active players by the Monday afternoon deadline. By Friday night, that number will be down to the regular season maximum of 53.
On Thursday, four former Mountaineers took the field in hopes of earning their roster spot. The results were mixed.
Adam Jones (CIN) – Jones was held out of Thursday night’s game due to an undisclosed injury.
Robert Sands (CIN) – Sands has been hampered by injuries recently, but was not listed on the official “DNP” list released by the Bengals. Still, he did not register any statistics on Thursday night.
Darius Reynaud (TEN) – Reynaud was far more human on Thursday, getting five touches out of the backfield for 23 yards. On special teams, he was solid, yet again. He returned two punts for 12 yards and two kicks for 63.
The biggest news of the night, though, was the broken leg to former All-Pro returner Marc Mariani. Reynaud and Mariani were in a battle for the starting spot on both return teams.
Don Barclay (GB) – Barclay lined up at both right guard and right tackle on Thursday night. He has now played every position on the offensive line with the exception of center. That kind of versatility is very helpful in securing a spot on the 53-man roster.
