Titans running back and former Michigan standout Hassan Haskins was placed on the Commissioner Exempt List following his summer arrest. The news comes after the ball carrier was placed on the injured reserve, likely ending his 2023 season.
Haskins was selected in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft out of Michigan. He finished his rookie season in Tennessee with 93 rushing and 57 receiving yards.
Haskins was arrested and charged with aggravated assault by strangulation following two separate incidents with his girlfriend, per MLive.com.
The story from MLive.com 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.
