Titans place TE Brackett on IR with injured knee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans have placed tight end Brett Brackett on injured reserve after he hurt his knee in their loss to the Jets and replaced him by adding tight end Matthew Mulligan.

The Titans announced the moves Tuesday and signed quarterback Alex Tanney to the practice squad.

Brackett had been on and off the practice squad and roster between September and October before being signed to the roster the last time Nov. 5. He played in seven games before being hurt Sunday.

The 6-foot-4 Mulligan has played in 67 games over five seasons in the NFL, including two with Chicago this season. He spent last season with New England and has played with St. Louis and the Jets and a stint on the Titans' practice squad in 2008.
