Petit-Frere was a staple on the Titans’ offensive line as a rookie. He played in all 16 games. The team will welcome him back with open arms as the offensive line has struggled through three games. The Ohio State product was taken in the third round by the Titans in the 2022 NFL Draft.
First-round draft pick Peter Skoronski has also been out after having an appendectomy and free-agent signing Andre Dillard has not been up to par.
Petit-Frere will still miss Sunday’s game versus the Cincinatti Bengals. His 2023 debut will be against the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 8.
