Friday's Quick Hits from the Titans, Including Corey Davis and his Surging Confidence


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Titans receiver Corey Davis had a breakout day on Sunday, and his phone blew up.

"It's been a lot of love, from family and friends," Davis said on Friday. "A lot of people said they saw a breakout game coming for me, and they were just happy to see it. It's a good feeling."

Davis had a career-high nine catches for 161 yards in Sunday's win against the Eagles, including the game-winning catch in overtime. It was a boost of confidence for the fifth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Titans travel to Buffalo to face the Bills on Sunday.

"It was a crazy moment, definitely a moment I won't forget. It feels good, not only for me but for the whole team," Davis said. "It definitely gives you confidence moving forward. It was a hard-fought victory, and that's what it is going to take every week and we understand that. It will be a battle every week, and we are looking forward to it.

"(What happened Sunday) is in the past now. Win or lose, it is over with and we are on to the next."

Davis laughed off guard Quinton Spain throwing the ball into the stands, although the Titans are trying to get the ball back for Davis since it was his first career regular season touchdown.

"I am not that type of guy that is really worried about materialistic things," Davis said. "That ball is more for the team – that was a crazy victory and we understand that. We got the win and that's really all that matters."

Davis the team's receiving corps – Tajae Sharpe and Taywan Taylor made big plays on Sunday – is feeling more confident each week.

"We definitely have some dogs," Davis said. "We may be young but we have some playmakers that are going to go out there and give it everything they've got, and I'm going to do the same thing. … We're going to fight no matter what, day in and day out."

Woodyard, Vaccaro Out

Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard (shoulder) and safety Kenny Vaccaro (elbow) have both been ruled out for Sunday's game.

Neither player will travel to Buffalo.

"You are losing a captain, missing a captain, a veteran player. He is kind of like our Lorenzo Alexander," Titans coach Mike Vrabel said of the Bills veteran linebacker, and Woodyard. "He was not a household name, but 12 years later has had a really, really good career.

"It will be critical that Rashaan (Evans) and Will (Compton) step in there for him."
