Catch up on the highlights from the Titans’ first OTA session of 2019

NFL: Tennessee Titans-Training Camp Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans returned to the practice field on Tuesday to mix the 2019 rookies with the veteran players for the first time.

The practice session, which ran from 11:35AM to 12:50PM local time, was closed to the public but open to the media. And the media got plenty of videos from today’s practice.

It’s just OTA’s, and this is the most optimistic time of the year, but it’s great to see the guys out there running around again, especially players who finished the season injured, like Delanie Walker and Marcus Mariota.

Check out some highlights from practice below...

Delanie Walker looks explosive coming off his gruesome leg injury suffered in Week 1 last season.

Here’s a clip of the running backs working on reads for the zone running scheme:

Working on footwork also:

Here’s the receivers doing individual drills:

Mariota getting his arm loose:

Receivers working with quarterbacks:

The defense was out there working, too, of course.

Cameron Wake making an early impact.

The end of practice wasn’t the end of the day for everyone, as Corey Davis and A.J. Brown stayed on field after everyone else working on releases.

A handful of players did brief on-field interviews with media right after practice, including Brown, Walker, Adam Humphries and Taylor Lewan.

Wake, Mariota, and head coach Mike Vrabel held formal press conferences after practice.

Interestingly, Vrabel made a statement about how ridiculous it was to even suggest that Mariota is anything but the starting quarterback.

OTAs will continue this week at Saint Thomas Sports Park. Stay tuned...
