Titans 1st-round rookie WR Corey Davis (hamstring) still hasn't been able to get back on the practice field, more than two weeks after injuring his hamstring on August 3rd.
Coach Mike Mularkey said he’d like to see him play in the preseason, but they’re not going to risk it. It really depends on how he does in his rehab, and return. So far, he hasn’t done anything in practices since the injury earlier this month.
Meanwhile, 3rd round rookie Taywon Taylor impressed in his preseason debut, and the Titans have two seasoned veterans in Eric Decker and Rishard Matthews. Davis was the first receiver off the board and is probably landing in the best situation theoretically, if he can get healthy. However, we've seen this script before with rookie receivers missing time in the preseason and having their snaps limited in the first quarter of the regular season. He has a good quarterback (Marcus Mariota) and the team has a glaring need at receiver. The last eight receivers who were drafted in the top 10 averaged 56 catches for 824 yards and 6.0 touchdowns as rookies.
