Haskins was arrested and charged with aggravated assault by strangulation following two separate incidents with his girlfriend, per

The story from reads, “In the first incident, according to ESPN, Haskins is alleged to have strangled his 22-year-old girlfriend, Makiah Green. A second incident saw Green allegedly throw a glass at Haskins, rip a chain off his neck, broke his phone and assault him.

“Green, the girlfriend, was also jailed and charged with aggravated assault by strangulation and felony vandalism.”

The roster move comes after the Titans concluded their preseason schedule. Tennessee ended that portion of the year with a 2-1 record. It will open the regular season against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Sept. 10 at 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
