The Titans signed Fort to their practice squad Tuesday, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com reports.
Fort spent the 2019 and 2020 season on Denver's injured reserve after season-ending knee surgeries.

Austin Fort: Moves to waivers

Broncos' Austin Fort: Looks to establish role in offense
Fort is a candidate to win the Broncos' third tight end spot, Cody Roark of 9 News Denver reports.
Fort now has a clean bill of health after recovering from knee injuries suffered in both of the last two preseasons. The 26-year-old is currently behind starter Noah Fant and backup Albert Okwuegbunam in the pecking order at tight end, so he'll realistically be competing for the No. 3 role with Andrew Beck, Shaun Beyer and Eric Saubert. If Fort ends up as the team's third tight end, he would likely need an injury or absence on the part of either Fant or Okwuegbunam to be considered close to the fantasy radar. In such a scenario, Fort's skills as a blocker and receiver could help him to establish a role in Denver's offense.... See More ... See Less

Coach Vic Fangio said Monday that Fort is expected to miss 4-to-8 weeks after undergoing an arthroscopic knee procedure, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
Fort already missed the entire 2019 season with a torn ACL, and this news doesn't bode well for his chances to start 2020 on time either. He's still a bit buried on the depth chart behind younger options, so he's not likely to make a fantasy impact anyway heading into this campaign.... See More ... See Less
