The Tennessee Titans faced a challenging weekend, not only losing to the Indianapolis Colts but also experiencing key player injuries, notably impacting their star punter, Ryan Stonehouse.
Stonehouse, leading the league in pro bowl voting for punters, suffered an injury during the game, leaving a significant gap to fill. In response, the Titans added Ty Zentner to the roster on Tuesday. Zentner, a 25-year-old rookie from Kansas State, previously punted for the Houston Texans, averaging 42.1 yards per punt in four games. A stark contrast to Stonehouse’s league-leading 53.1 yards per punt, Zentner faces the tough task of stepping into the role.

Zentner’s addition to the practice squad suggests a potential gameday elevation against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night. If he seizes the opportunity, a permanent elevation in the near future is likely.
In addition to Zentner, linebacker JoJo Domann joined the practice squad, while linebacker Otis Reese was elevated to the 53-man roster. These changes follow the unexpected release of former third-round pick Monty Rice on Tuesday.
Reese, an undrafted free agent from Ole Miss, initially made the Titans’ roster and is expected to contribute immediately, especially on special teams.
