Titans designate Caleb Shudak to return from PUP list

Tennessee Titans kicker Caleb Shudak has become the forgotten man as he’s spent the entirety of the 2022 campaign thus far on the physically unable to perform list — but his return is nearing.

The team announced on Tuesday it has designated the 2022 undrafted free agent out of Iowa to return from the PUP list, opening his 21-day window to be activated.

Shudak was actually performing well when we first (and last) saw him all the way back during OTAs. In fact, there was a thought he might give Randy Bullock a run for his money.

However, an unspecified leg injury derailed that.

Shudak’s return comes at an interesting time, as fellow kicker Randy Bullock is dealing with a calf injury that kept him from playing in Week 11.

On Monday, the team parted ways with kicker Josh Lambo, who filled in for Bullock in Week 11. The move was not followed up with another signing to the active roster, so that leaves one spot open.

At first we assumed the move meant Bullock was good to go and the roster spot would just be filled at a later date, but with Shudak close to returning now, one also has to wonder if he might get the call should Bullock miss another game.

We’ll know more when the first injury report of the week gets released on Wednesday.
