Observations from Day 10 of Titans Camp


NASHVILLE – The Titans hit the field at Saint Thomas Sports Park on Tuesday for the 10th practice of training camp.

Here's a look at what stood out on Day 10:

-Quarterback Marcus Mariota was a full participant, one day after being given a day of rest. Mariota made a number of nice throws, especially in the red zone. Mariota also sailed a few over the heads of intended targets, but overall had a solid day.

-Receiver Tajae Sharpe had another impressive practice, coming up with several catches in the red zone. Sharpe made a nice grab in the corner of the end zone, and later, after beating cornerback LeShaun Sims for a score, he let his emotions out by spiking the football with a vengeance.

-Receiver Corey Davis and Sharpe lined up with the first team offense at the start. Davis worked in individual and then team drills at the beginning of practice, but saw his reps scaled back down the stretch.

-Receiver Kalif Raymond once again earned first team reps, and after practice received a nice compliment from Mariota.

-Tight end Parker Hesse caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Logan Woodside in a 7-on-7 red zone drill.

-In a team period in the second half of practice, cornerback Malcolm Butler had a nice break-up on a pass intended for Sharpe.

-Running back Jeremy McNichols continued to get a lot of work, and he appears to be making the most of his opportunities.

-Running back Dion Lewis made the best run of the day, however. He showed plenty of burst when he busted through the hole and into the open field.

-Safety Dane Cruikshank made a nice break-up on a pass intended for tight end Anthony Firkser.

-Linebacker Riley Bullough was right there when receiver Jalen Tolliver made a catch.

-Firkser, Tolliver and tight end Ryan Hewitt all had catches in a team period midway through practice.

-Defensive linemen Austin Johnson and DaQuan Jones pressured Mariota in a red zone period, and likely would have combined for a sack in game.

-Mariota connected with Adam Humphries for a touchdown in a red zone period, but cornerback Logan Ryan broke up another pass after Mariota threw high to tight end MyCole Pruitt.

-On back-to-back plays later, quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw touchdown passes to tight ends Cole Wick and Pruitt.

-On another back-to-back play sequence, Woodside threw touchdown passes to receivers Papi White and Anthony Ratliff-Williams.

--Darius Jennings and tight end Delanie Walker caught passes from Mariota in a 7-on-7 period, but Sims made a really nice break-up on a ball intended for Jennings later in the same period.

-Safety JoJo Tillery and cornerback Adoree' Jackson made plays in a 7-on-7 period guided by Tannehill, but Ratliff-Williams made the catch of the day when he managed to haul in a deep pass from Tannehill with cornerback Kenneth Durden defending on the play.

-Defensive back Joshua Kalu fired up his coaches and teammates with an INT in a one-on-one period.

-Safety Amani Hooker continues to show nice instincts.

-Tight end/fullback Ryan Hewitt has shown up has a blocker.

-Receiver A.J. Brown did not practice, but he once again threw passes to receivers in individual drills.

-Running back Derrick Henry, guard Nate Davis, linebacker D'Andre Walker and defensive lineman Frank Herron did not practice.

Next up: Thursday, preseason opener at Philadelphia Eagles.
