The Tennessee Titans have activated threetime Pro Bowl punter Brett Kern and cornerback Tye Smith from injured reserve, and linebacker David Long also is back from the reserve/COVID19 list.
Jonathan Taylor is in quarantine after a close contact reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.
Indianapolis spent all week preparing for Derrick Henry. With Pro Bowl defensive tackle DeForest Buckner out after being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier this week, starting defensive end Denico Autry still inactive after going on the COVID list last week and now starting linebacker Bobby Okereke ruled out with an ankle injury, coach Frank Reich isn't changing his tune. ''This is normal in the NFL and good teams overcome it,'' he said Friday, referring to the three absences.
