Dalyn Dawkins added to Titans active roster

After originally signing with the team’s practice squad, former Colorado State running back Dalyn Dawkins has been added to 53-man roster for the Tennessee Titans.

According to a Facebook post from Dawkins, running back David Fluellen injury last Sunday allowed for the opportunity. Dawkins joins fellow running backs Derrick Henry, Dion Lewis and Fluellen on Tennessee’s active roster.

Dawkins signed with the Titans last spring after going undrafted, and has a successful preseason with the team. Many fans and local writers speculated Dawkins would ultimately make the active roster for Week 1. In the Titans’ fourth preseason game, Dawkins led the team with 17 carries for 53 yards.

In three seasons with Colorado State, Dawkins had 557 career carries for 3,185 yards and 14 touchdowns. The speedy running back also had 70 receptions and three receiving touchdowns with the Rams.
