First-Round Pick Corey Davis Making Progress, Nearing Return



NASHVILLE, Tenn. –** Titans receiver Corey Davis is nearing a return and he might play in the team's final preseason game against the Chiefs, coach Mike Mularkey said on Sunday.

Davis, the fifth overall pick of the NFL Draft, has been sidelined with a hamstring injury.

"On track to do that if he continues to progress like he is," Mularkey said of Davis. "I think he is ahead of schedule with that. … Obviously it would be really good for him to get into (a preseason game) but we want him for the season."

Meanwhile, several other Titans receivers are also in the mend, and nearing a return.

The Titans beat the Panthers 34-27 in their second preseason game on Saturday, after suffering a loss to the Jets in Week 1. The Titans will face the Bears on Sunday at Nissan Stadium before wrapping up the preseason in Kansas City.

Receiver Tajae Sharpe, who began training camp on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list because of a foot injury, is scheduled to be evaluated on Monday.

"We will revisit and take him out for workout and discuss," Mularkey said of Sharpe. "He looks real good. Tajae has done everything above and beyond what we've asked him to do to come back."

Veteran receiver Eric Decker, who missed Saturday's game against the Panthers with an ankle injury, will be questionable this week against the Bears. Mularkey said he's moving around better.

Receiver Rishard Matthews, excused for Saturday's game for personal reasons, is expected back with the team on Monday, Mularkey said.

The Titans starters will get their most extensive playing time of the preseason against the Bears.
