Titans agreed to terms with RB Jalen Parmele, formerly of the Jaguars.

He's replacing Jamie Harper, who was waived on Wednesday. Per the Nashville Tennessean's John Glennon, the Titans view Parmele as a better receiver and special teamer than Harper, who was used as a battering ram brute in the running game. Parmele averaged just 3.6 yards on his 40 carries last season, but the depth chart is wide open behind Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene.

The Titans hosted RB Jalen Parmele for a free-agent visit on Friday.

Parmele visited the Seahawks in early April but has otherwise generated no legitimate interest. He's a plodding runner with some special teams value.

Free agent RB Jalen Parmele visited the Seahawks.

As part of the Jaguars' injury-ravaged backfield last year, Parmele recorded 40 carries for 143 yards and no touchdowns. But in reality, he's a borderline NFL player that focuses mostly on lead-blocking and special teams. Parmele can also help out on kick returns in a pinch.

Jaguars RB Jalen Parmele (injured reserve) underwent surgery Thursday to repair his partially torn groin.

There's no word yet on a timetable. If it was sports hernia surgery, Parmele could be running again in a few weeks. A fringe roster type, Parmele is due to reach free agency in 2013.

Jags RB Jalen Parmele (IR, groin) will visit a specialist on Wednesday to determine if he needs surgery.

Parmele earned a game ball for fighting his way back into last week's win despite a pulled groin. He ended up with a partial tear in his muscle. The injury won't help Parmele's chances of earning a 2013 roster spot.

Jaguars placed RB Jalen Parmele (groin) and CB Will Middleton (concussion) on season-ending injured reserve.

Parmele returned to the game after injuring his groin on the first drive and appears to have done more extensive damage while dragging his leg on a fourth-quarter run. It's a multi-week injury, suggesting surgery will be an option. With Parmele and Maurice Jones-Drew out, Rashad Jennings has another shot at feature-back duties at an improving Buffalo defense in Week 13. Parmele can be discarded in Dynasty leagues, as he won't be guaranteed a roster spot in 2013.

Jalen Parmele (groin) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Parmele pulled his groin early in the first quarter against the Titans and spent 1.5 quarters trying to get it loose on the sideline. He briefly returned in the second half, but was running on one leg. Coach Mike Mularkey had high praise for Parmele's effort. "You're talking about a guy dragging his leg, literally, through the hole while he's running over defenders. One of the toughest performances I've seen a player have since I've been in this league." If Parmele can't go in Week 13, Mularkey will have to turn back to Rashad Jennings. Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) still isn't ready.

Jalen Parmele aggravated his leg injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's Week 12 game versus the Titans.

Parmele spent 1.5 quarters on the stationary bike and standing on the sideline after injuring the leg early in the first quarter. He had eight carries for 45 yards and one reception for 7 yards before limping on a pitch like a wounded bison in the middle of the fourth quarter. He's almost certainly done for the day, and the injury may put his status in jeopardy for Week 13 at Buffalo.

Jalen Parmele exited Sunday's game early in the first quarter with a leg injury.

Parmele was pedaling away on the stationary bike, suggesting a soft tissue injury such as a hamstring. His first carry went for 13 yards, but Rashad Jennings has been on the field ever since. Parmele is officially questionable to return.
