Tennessee Titans: I am about to hit the panic button before week 2
Before week one, I said I could not believe how many injuries the Tennessee Titans had already sustained without having played a game. Rookie running back Darrynton Evans, free-agent signing Vic Beasley, and cornerback Adoree Jackson all missed the trip after missing practice in the week leading up the game.
Man was I wrong to say that before the Monday night opener in Denver. After 60 minutes of football, I would go as far as saying the Titans are banged up.
Mike Vrabel’s two leading wide receivers, Corey Davis and AJ Brown, have missed practice this week and are being considered questionable for Sunday afternoon’s game against Jacksonville.
Davis missed Wednesday’s practice and was limited Thursday while dealing with a hamstring issue. This terrible news comes after he racked up 101 yards on seven catches in the 16-14 win over the Broncos. It was his first 100-yard game since November 2018 and just the third of his career.
Brown’s injury is much more worrisome. The second-year man out of Ole Miss has a bone bruise in his knee which forced him to completely miss practice Thursday after being limited a day earlier. Already, experts are saying that Brown will miss the clash with the Jaguars at Nissan Stadium and will be listed as week-to-week moving forward.
Before learning of Davis and Brown’s ailments, the Titans waived WR Cody Hollister and just brought him back to the practice squad today.
Nick Westbroo-Ikhine was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster and will be dressed on Sunday.
First the kicking game and the Gostkowski fiasco, now the top two wide receivers are injured?! I’m ready to go ahead and start panicking. If the offense looks stagnant against the Jags against this weekend, I’m going crazy.
