Titans add former West Creek star to practice squad

By Jimmy Trodglen


Clarksville, Tenn. – C.J. Board could find himself playing professional football on Sunday, less than an hour from where he played high school football.

Board, a 6-foot-2 rookie wide receiver, was added to the Titans practice squad Tuesday. Board was part of an active personnel day for the Titans, who agreed to terms with quarterback Brandon Weeden. The Titans waived linebacker Josh Carraway and removed cornerback Kenneth Durden to make room for Board and Weeden.

Board played at Chattanooga where he started in 47 games and finished with 2,032 receiving yards. He had 146 career receptions and ten touchdowns. Board also played on special teams where he returned 42 punts and nine kickoff returns.

Board signed as a free agent with the Ravens after he wasn’t selected in the 2017 NFL Draft. Board played in the Ravens’ preseason games, but was waived when the franchise had to cut its roster down to 53.

Board is one of two Clarksville area athletes currently on NFL rosters. Jalen Reeves-Maybin, who played at Northeast and Tennessee, is a rookie linebacker with the Lions.

Board is also the second athlete from the area to play for the Titans. Antonio Andrews, who was a Kentucky Mr. Football when he was a senior at Fort Campbell, was on the Titans’ practice squad and game-day roster for three seasons.

The Titans signed Weeden following a hamstring injury to Marcus Mariota in the Titans’ AFC loss to the Texans Sunday.

Weeden has played in 34 NFL games, making 25 starts. Weeden has played for the Browns, Cowboys and Texans.
