A Titans staff member told third-round S Kevin Byard that Bishop Sankey's number was available.
Byard wore No. 20 in college, the same number Sankey has worn his first two years in the league. Teams often have players share numbers when the roster is expanded during the offseason, but the top players usually get their number all to themselves. After the Titans traded for DeMarco Murray and drafted Derrick Henry, Sankey is clearly no longer a highly-valued asset, and it would be a surprise if he survives training camp on the roster.

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky believes Bishop Sankey "may well not make the team."

Kuharsky is just stating the obvious. The Titans have (over?)invested major resources in DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry, and still have 2015 fifth-rounder David Cobb and pass-catching back Dexter McCluster. Sankey has showed next to nothing in two years on the job, taking the ball 199 times for 762 yards (3.82 YPC) while catching a modest 32 passes. The Titans' best-case scenario could be trading Sankey for a conditional seventh-round pick.
May 3 - 2:06 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey says the team will address running back this offseason.

The Titans had the league's most pathetic running back corps in 2015, so it's not a surprise. This year's draft class hasn't shaken out yet, but it's an unusually strong free agent crop for runners. Bishop Sankey's roster spot isn't guaranteed for 2016.
Jan 18 - 2:51 PM

Bishop Sankey rushed four times for 16 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.

It ends another disappointing year for Sankey. A 2014 second-round pick, Sankey has been a bust through two seasons. He was a healthy scratch before Dexter McCluster went on I.R. in Week 14. Sankey finishes with 332 total yards and just one touchdown. He'll compete for a special teams/pass-down role in 2016.
Jan 3 - 4:38 PM

Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey said Bishop Sankey will be more involved Week 17 against the Colts.

Sankey led the backfield in snaps after Antonio Andrews turned the ball over twice against the Texans. David Cobb still handled more carries, but Sankey was the preferred passing-down back with the team down big. After making one of the biggest plays of the day on a 30-yard catch-and-run, Sankey might have earned more carries as well. This backfield is one to avoid for fantasy purposes, but Sankey could at least end his disappointing sophomore campaign on a high note.

Bishop Sankey rushed twice for 11 yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for 43 yards Week 16 against the Texans.

Sankey made one of the biggest plays of the day for Tennessee when he took a short dump-off 30 yards to help set up the Titans' only touchdown. Sankey will finish off his disappointing sophomore campaign as the passing-game option in Tennessee's nondescript backfield.

Bishop Sankey caught 3-of-3 targets for 23 yards in the Titans' Week 15 loss to the Patriots.

Sankey was held without a rushing attempt. Imitating Dexter McCluster for the season's final two weeks, Sankey will lack fantasy value.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 06:59:00 PM

Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey expects Bishop Sankey to have a bigger role in Week 15.

That won't be hard to do since Sankey was a healthy scratch last week. The bigger role is a necessity with Dexter McCluster (wrist) landing on injured reserve. We still wouldn't count on Sankey getting more than 5-6 touches against the Patriots. He's not on the fantasy radar.
Thu, Dec 17, 2015 02:52:00 PM

Titans declared RB Bishop Sankey (healthy) inactive for Week 14 against the Jets.

Sankey has now been a healthy scratch three times since Week 9. The 2014 second-rounder looks headed for a quick exit from Tennessee. Titans also declared WR Kendall Wright, OLB Derrick Morgan, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, DL Mike Martin, OT Jamon Meredith, and DE Ropati Pitoitua inactive for Week 14 against the Jets.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 11:38:00 AM

Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey said Bishop Sankey will be active for Week 12 against the Raiders.

The Titans will need an extra body at running back while Dexter McCluster is out with a sprained MCL. Antonio Andrews and David Cobb will still get most of Tennessee's carries. Sankey isn't a fantasy option.
Fri, Nov 20, 2015 04:59:00 PM

Bishop Sankey is a healthy scratch for Week 11.

It's the second time in three weeks. This time, Sankey was left in street clothes in favor of David Cobb, who will be making his NFL debut. Sankey is only 18 months removed from being the No. 54 overall pick, but his Tennessee future is looking grim.
Thu, Nov 19, 2015 08:00:00 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said RB Bishop Sankey could be inactive for Week 10 against the Panthers.

Sankey didn't play a snap in Week 9 and with David Cobb (calf) coming off injured reserve, he'll likely be a healthy scratch on Sunday. The first running back taken in last year's draft, Sankey simply hasn't panned out. Nearly half of Sankey's rushing yards this year came in Week 1 when he posted 74 yards on 12 carries. That feels like a lifetime ago.
Wed, Nov 11, 2015 10:53:00 PM

Titans sophomore RB Bishop Sankey played zero snaps Week 9 against the Saints.

The coaching staff may have changed, but Sankey remains glued to the bench. With his role on special teams also gone, it would not be surprising if Sankey becomes a weekly inactive once David Cobb is activated. A second-round pick last year, his Titans' career could be short and not so sweet.
Mon, Nov 9, 2015 11:51:00 AM

The Titans have pulled Bishop Sankey off kick returns.

Dexter McCluster will take over going forward. Sankey has been all but eliminated from the Titans' offense, and is no longer even a special teams factor.
Mon, Nov 2, 2015 04:49:00 PM

Bishop Sankey played just two snaps Week 7 against the Falcons.

He did not have a carry and failed to secure his only target of the day. Dexter McCluster paced the Titans' backfield with 39 snaps while Antonio Andrews saw 17. With David Cobb (calf) expected back in two weeks, Sankey could find himself next to Terrance West on the weekly inactive list. He can be dropped everywhere.
