Peterson

Adrian Peterson was released by the Titans on Tuesday.

The Tennessee Titans waived running back Adrian Peterson from their active roster on Tuesday.

The 36-year-old future Hall of Famer played in three games for the Titans, but had just 82 yards rushing on 27 carries.

Also, the Titans brought in veteran wide receiver Golden Tate, adding him to the practice squad with injuries to Julio Jones, Marcus Johnson and A.J. Brown.

That move coincides with their decision to promote Dontrelle Hilliard to the 53-man roster to join Jeremy McNichols and D'Onta Foreman as running backs on the roster.

The team also designated fullback Khari Blasingame for return from injured reserve.

The Titans ended Marcus Johnson's season by placing him on IR for a second time with his hamstring injury, and also put cornerback Chris Jackson on injured reserve, forcing him to miss at least three weeks.

In addition to that the Titans added cornerback Buster Skrine, an NFL veteran, who has spent time with the Browns and Jets. They also brought back veteran outside linebacker John Simon for another stint this season.

Tennessee also added numerous players to the practice squad, the most notable being Tate, who is a local product that played at Pope John Paul II before going on to start at Notre Dame and play for the Seahawks, Lions and Giants in the NFL.

The Titans also added receiver Austin Mack, defensive lineman Kevin Strong and running back Rodney Smith to the practice squad.
