The Titans finished up their third week of OTAs this past Friday, and Jim Wyatt lists off six things that stood out to him during last week's activities. First round pick Corey Davis had his workload increased, and he made a lot more plays because of it. Mularkey said Davis should be off the injury report this week. Adoree' Jackson got some love from LeBeau, and Jackson grabbed the attention of Wyatt with his aggressiveness in coverage. Injuries stood out to Wyatt last week. Murray, Sharpe, and Cassel are all on the mend. Cassel's injury means Alex Tanney has seen an uptick in his practice time, and he took advantage of it. He's been accurate, been making quick decisions, and he hasn't made many mistakes. Jayon Brown impressed Wyatt by flying all around during practice, and thinks he has a good chance to make it on the field early because of his coverage skills. Finally, Derrick Henry has looked good taking on extra work due to Murray's injury. He's been hitting the hole well, and he's been catching the ball well out of the backfield.
Quick Hit: Jim Wyatt's mailbag.
Dick LeBeau is figuring out the nickel possibilities for the Titans. Sean Spence is out, so the Titans need someone to fill that nickel spot. The team has been pretty crappy in coverage against tight ends. Mularkey said the team knows that is a weakness of theirs, and that it has been. There are four players LeBeau can consider to play the nickel role: Daren Bates, Jayon Brown, Kevin Byard, and Da'Norris Searcy. LeBeau said Cyprien could possibly play the role, but "someone needs to play safety."
That's all for today. Happy reading!
