Observations from Day 12 of Titans Training Camp


NASHVILLE – The Titans hit the field at Saint Thomas Sports Park on Sunday for the 12th practice of training camp.

Here's a look at what stood out on Day 12:

-Rookie receiver A.J. Brown was on the field and in a helmet for the first time since suffering an injury on the first day of training camp. Brown went through some early drills with teammates and coaches before heading over to a side field. Brown did not take part in team drills, and he eventually went inside to continue to his rehab.

-Running back Derrick Henry was also spotted on the field doing rehab for the first time since his injury on the first day of camp. It was considered a step in the right direction.

-Receiver Corey Davis did not take part in team drills. He went inside early after getting some work in on a side field as well.

-Jamil Douglas worked again with the first team at right guard, alongside Dennis Kelly (RT), Rodger Saffold (LG), Ben Jones (C), and Jack Conklin (78).

-Receiver Taywan Taylor has bounced back well after a tough night in Philadelphia. Taylor got behind cornerback Kenneth Durden and caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Taylor also made a nice catch on the sideline.

-Quarterback Marcus Mariota's best pass of the day was a strike in the middle of the field to receiver Darius Jennings, which was good for 25 yards. On the next play, Mariota tucked the ball and ran for a first down.

-Defensive lineman DaQuan Jones got his hands up and knocked down a Mariota pass at the line of scrimmage.

-Running back Dion Lewis had several nice runs on the day, showing some burst after busting through the hole. Lewis also caught a screen pass from Mariota and turned it into a nice gain.

-Running back Jeremy McNichols also had a number of nice runs, and so did Akeem Hunt, who seems to have fresh legs on his second day.

-Cornerback Kareem Orr, who played at Chattanooga, continues to make play in camp. Orr intercepted quarterback Logan Woodside on Sunday after snatching a deflected pass out of the air.

-Cornerback LeShaun Sims made a really nice break-up on a Mariota pass intended for Taylor on the sideline.

-Defensive lineman Matt Dickerson blew up one handoff to Lewis in the hole.

-Receiver Kalif Raymond got behind the defense early in practice, but quarterback Ryan Tannehill overthrew him. Later in practice, Raymond appeared to be suffering from cramps.

-Cornerback Malcolm Butler made a really nice play in team drills, breaking up a pass intended for receiver Tajae Sharpe.

-Mariota connected with tight end MyCole Pruitt and Sharpe on underneath passes in a team period.

-In a red zone period, Mariota connected with Raymond and tight end Anthony Firkser.

-Tannehill saw running back Dalyn Dawkins take a short pass from him into the end zone in the red zone period after throwing a pair of incompletions.

-Receiver Papi White caught a touchdown pass from Woodside in a red zone period. Later, White made a nice spinning catch in a hurry-up offense.

-Tight end Parker Hesse made several catches on the day.

-Durden had a nice breakup on a pass intended for Raymond.

-Running David Fluellen, guard Nate Davis, tight end Delanie Walker, receiver Tanner McEvoy and defensive lineman Frank Herron did not practice on Sunday.

-Former Cowboys fullback Daryl "Moose" Johnston attended Sunday's practice.

Next practice: Monday, 9:50 a.m. (closed to fans).
