Until Chestnut finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • Titans' Julius Chestnut: Back from injury

    Chestnut (hamstring) participated in OTAs in May. The running back spent most of 2023 on injured reserve, playing in only three games. Chestnut participated in six contests as a rookie the year before. Now that he's back, he'll get to compete for a role in the backfield behind free-agent signee Tony Pollard.

  • Titans' Julius Chestnut: Returns to Tennessee

    Chestnut (hamstring) is re-signing with the Titans on a one-year contract, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Chestnut appeared in six games with Tennessee as a rookie in 2022 but was limited to three appearances in 2023 before going on injured reserve due to a hamstring injury. Once healthy, he'll compete for a depth role in a backfield now headlined by free-agent signing Tony Pollard rather than Derrick Henry.

  • Titans' Julius Chestnut: Going to IR

    Tennessee placed Chestnut (hamstring) on its injured reserve list Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. After sustaining a hamstring injury during Sunday's 27-3 loss at Cleveland, Chestnut will now have to sit out at least Tennessee's next four games as he recovers. He's the second Titans running back to go to injured reserve in as many weeks, so it would make sense for the team to sign another back in the coming days.

  • Titans' Julius Chestnut: Will not return

    Chestnut (hamstring) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Browns, Turron Davenport of reports. Chestnut went to the locker with the help of trainers after suffering the injury and was unable to put any pressure on his left leg. His absence will leave the Titans with just Derrick Henry and Tyjae Spears at running back for the remainder of the game.

  • Titans' Julius Chestnut: Working behind Henry, Spears

    Chestnut played one of his 16 snaps on offense and went without a touch in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over the Chargers. Chestnut has logged just six snaps on offense and has yet to record a carry or a reception while serving as the Titans' No. 3 running back behind Derrick Henry and Tyjae Spears. Unless one of the two players above him on the depth chart misses time for whatever reason, Chestnut doesn't look as though he'll be in line for a regular role out of the backfield.

  • Titans' Julius Chestnut: Stands out in preseason finale

    Chestnut took nine carries for 30 yards and two catches for 42 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 23-7 preseason win over the Patriots. Tyjae Spears repped ahead of the other backups as he has all preseason, with Chestnut taking over thereafter and making some big plays to ignite the Tennessee offense. Meanwhile, Hassan Haskins (undisclosed) and Jonathan Ward (knee) remained unavailable, leaving Jacques Patrick as the only RB left after Spears and Chestnut (a healthy Derrick Henry was unsurprisingly rested). Patrick did well with 17 touches for 94 yards, but Chestnut scored three TDs this preseason and may have earned the No. 3 RB role heading into a Week 1 road game against New Orleans.

  • Titans' Julius Chestnut: Finds role late in rookie season

    Chestnut ended the 2022 season with nine rushing attempts for 12 yards. He added three receptions for 41 yards and 215 kick return yards. Chestnut joined the Titans as an undrafted free agent prior to the 2022 season. He was inactive for each of Tennessee's first 11 games but closed the season with an increased role as he suited up for the final six contests. While Derrick Henry will continue to dominate carries out of the backfield in 2023, Chestnut could be a valuable special teams contributor, as he chipped in at least 40 kick return yards in three of the last five games to close 2022.

  • Titans' Julius Chestnut: Bumps back down to practice squad

    Chestnut reverted to the Titans' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Chestnut was elevated from the practice squad for the second time in as many weeks ahead of Sunday's loss to Jacksonville. With Hassan Haskins (hip) inactive and Trenton Cannon (knee) on IR, the undrafted rookie served as Tennessee's third-string running back behind Dontrell Hilliard, who was forced out with a neck injury. Chestnut did not record a rush across his seven offensive snaps, but he did haul in both of his targets for eight yards. He also returned two kickoffs for 53 yards across 12 special-teams snaps. With Hilliard already ruled out Week 15 versus the Chargers, it's likely that Chestnut would be elevated to serve as Tennessee's No. 2 running back if Haskins also remains sidelined.

  • Titans' Julius Chestnut: Bumped up from practice squad

    Chestnut was elevated to the active roster Saturday, Ben Arthur of reports. Chestnut will be on the field with the Titans for a second consecutive game. Hassan Haskins (hip) has yet to be ruled out as he was last week, although Chestnut's elevation would seem to foreshadow that he will be.

  • Julius Chestnut: Returns to practice squad

    Chestnut reverted to the Titans' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Chestnut received the promotion with Hassan Haskins (hip) out. He saw seven snaps on offense against the Eagles, which led to five carries for 13 yards, all occurring in garbage time. Depending on Haskins' status for Week 14 against the Jaguars, Chestnut could find himself back with the active roster.

  • Titans' Julius Chestnut: Makes 2022 debut

    Chestnut rushed the ball five times for 13 yards in Sunday's 35-10 loss to the Eagles. Chestnut was elevated from the Titans' practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Eagles and was active for the first time this season. He saw all of his work in garbage time, with Derrick Henry and Dontrell Hilliard both being rested at that point. Chestnut will revert back to the practice squad in the coming days but could serve as depth once again before the regular season concludes.

  • Julius Chestnut: Rejoins practice squad

    Chestnut signed with the Titans' practice squad Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports. Chestnut was on the team's 53-man roster, but he was waived from it Saturday. He now rejoins the team, but this time on the practice squad. He'll use the opportunity to earn a chance to get back on the active roster.
