The Tennessee Titans announced on Tuesday that the team has signed tight end Tim Semisch and offensive lineman Cody Wichmann to the practice squad, removing tight end Jerome Cunningham and lineman Steven Moore in the process. The Titans originally assembled their practice squad last Sunday, a roster comprised of Cunningham, Moore, defensive tackle Antwaun Woods, running back Khalfani Muhammad, quarterback Tyler Ferguson, wide receiver Darius Jennings, safety Denzel Johnson, offensive lineman Tyler Marz.

Semisch is 6-8, 270 pounds and had been with the Los Angeles Chargers and Miami Dolphins previously.

Wichmann is a third-year man out of Fresno State. He was drafted in the sixth round in 2015 by the Los Angeles Rams. He started seven of the 12 games he appeared in as a rookie and started 11 of the 12 the following season. However, he was waived as a part of final cuts heading into this season.

Cunningham was on the Titans’ practice squad a season ago and signed a reserve/futures contract in January. He caught eight passes for 59 yards as a rookie in 2015 for the New York Giants  after signing him as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Connecticut. Cunningham was waived by the Giants the following season.

The Titans got off on the wrong foot as they lost to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, after the AFC West franchise took last season’s matchup as well. Tennessee will look to avoid starting the season 0-2 when the team takes on the rival Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday. The Jaguars had the biggest upset in Week 1 when they handled the Houston Texans on the road, 29-7.
