Titans waived/injured S Markelle Martin.

The 2012 sixth-round pick missed the entire offseason program with a groin injury after missing his entire rookie year with a knee injury, and didn't show enough in camp to keep his roster spot. Martin will hit injured reserve when he clears waivers.

Titans S Markelle Martin missed all of OTAs and minicamp with a groin injury.

Martin, a sixth-round pick out of Oklahoma State last year, missed his entire rookie season with a knee injury, so he's been watching from the sidelines for over a calendar year. Martin is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, but he faces an uphill battle for a roster spot.

Titans left S Markelle Martin (knee) on reserve/PUP, ending his season.

Martin had to be activated this week after returning to practice in mid-October. The Titans deemed him not ready to help on defense after undergoing a knee scope just before training camp. The rookie sixth-rounder will have to earn a roster spot next summer.

Titans S Markelle Martin (knee) practiced on Wednesday.

Titans rookie S Markelle Martin underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee Wednesday.

It was just a scope, but could still shelve Martin for the first six games of the season if he's kept on the PUP list through that point. Martin opened camp on active/PUP. Don't expect him to make an impact as a rookie.

Titans sixth-round S Markelle Martin (knee) will begin camp on the active/PUP list, and remains without a concrete return date.

Martin missed the final two weeks of OTAs with a hamstring ailment, but it's apparently his pre-Combine knee injury that's sidelining him for the beginning of camp. Per the Tennessean, he's expected to return at "some point." It's sounding like he could turn into a candidate to begin the season on the reserve/PUP.

Titans sixth-round S Markelle Martin (hamstring) missed the final two weeks of OTAs.

Martin expects to be a full-go for training camp, but his NFL career is off on the wrong foot. He also missed the Combine due to a right knee injury.

Titans rookie S Markelle Martin aggravated an offseason-long hamstring injury during Organized Team Activities.

The injury isn't serious, but it's lingering and could hurt Martin's chances of making the roster. He was drafted in the sixth round out of Oklahoma State.
Wed, Jun 13, 2012 04:46:00 PM

Titans agreed to terms with sixth-round S Markelle Martin on a four-year contract.

Martin was a well-regarded college free safety, but he is coming off knee surgery and needs to learn to read play-action. He's expected to be a developmental prospect in Tennessee, vying for a roster spot in training camp.
Fri, May 18, 2012 05:23:00 PM

Titans sixth-round S Markelle Martin is being limited at rookie minicamp while recovering from a torn right meniscus in his knee.

Martin suffered the injury in February and didn't run a forty time before the draft, hurting his stock and allowing Tennessee to snag a projected third- or fourth-rounder in the sixth. The Titans hope Martin will be 100 percent by OTAs.
Fri, May 11, 2012 08:21:00 PM

Titans selected Oklahoma State S Markelle Martin with the No. 190 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Martin has good length and reasonable size/athleticism, but his game tape isn't pretty. He bites on play action and shows poor awareness. The Titans have themselves a project that needs to be coached up to have a role outside of special teams.
