Former Clemson DE headed to the IR

Titans head coach Mike Mularkey announced on Monday that rookie Kevin Dodd will be placed on the injured reserve which will end his season.

"He’s had a hard time practicing with it and it’s affected his performance,” Mularkey said, via the team’s website. “I know he is disappointed. It’s a conversation we had this morning. He never really felt like he could play like he wanted to play at the level he wanted to play. He has a great future here. We are going to help him get that thing right and come back here stronger than ever.”

Dodd may need another surgery on his lingering foot injury that has plagued him from being 100% healthy in his rookie campaign with the Titans as he finished with five tackles and a sack this season. He had a breakout 2015 season at Clemson with 62 tackles, 12 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss (second in the nation behind Shaq Lawson).

He was selected in the second round with the 33rd overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
