TITANS HEAD COACH MIKE MULARKEY PRESS CONFERENCE TRANSCRIPT - September 8, 2017**
(on if cornerback LeShaun Sims practiced)
He did not practice so he will be out for the game.
(on if tackle Taylor Lewan practiced)
Taylor (Lewan), full participation.
(on if Taylor Lewan will play in Sunday's game)
He fully participated in today's practice.
(on how Taylor Lewan will be listed)
(on if there were any lingering questions about Taylor Lewan's health)
(on if anyone was not a full-participant in today's practice)
LeShaun Sims was the only one.
(on the feel of opening day)
It's an exciting day for everybody, vendors, the crowd, the team, the coaches to the officials. There's nothing like opening day in the NFL, it's special. I don't know how it is in other sports, I have a hard time believing it can be as good as it is here.
(on replacing LeShaun Sims in Sunday's game)
I think we're OK out there. We've got some good depth at that position, so we should be good to go.
(on cornerback Adoree' Jackson getting more reps in LeShaun Sims' absence)
Adoree' (Jackson) will play a good bit.
(on if he anticipates safeties taking reps at the cornerback position)
I don't anticipate that, no I don't.
(on defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau turning 80 tomorrow)
I'll make sure I wish him a happy birthday.
(on his memories with Dick LeBeau)
He's an amazing man, that's all I can say about him. What an honor and privilege to work with him. Nothing specific, we have our own little inside jokes that we have. Lately it's been me having to ask him, 'please don't tweet out some of this information.' He has no email, he has no way of way of doing any of that, but I still kid him every day.
(on how confident he feels in wide receiver Corey Davis)
I feel good about Corey (Davis). I don't think we'd go out there and play him 75 snaps. I think we've still got to see what he's capable of doing. What he's done out here has been very good, really pleased with him.
