Observations From Tuesday's Titans Minicamp


NASHVILLE – The Titans hit the field on Tuesday at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park for the first day of a three-day minicamp.

Al three sessions will be open to media.

Here's a look at what stood out from Tuesday:

-With stormy weather in the vicinity, the Titans practiced indoors on Tuesday.

-Coach Brian Callahan said every player reported for minicamp, even if some of the players weren't on the field.

-Edge rusher Harold Landry was back on the field after not being spotted during the previous open OTAs, and he looked explosive.

-Callahan talked a bit about receiver Treylon Burks, and his potential to help on special teams, as a gunner on punt coverage and potentially as a returner.

-Quarterback Will Levis was 6-of-10 in 7-on-7 drills, but two of the incompletions were drops. Levis looked sharp with his decision-making and throws, his best toss a strike across the middle to receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

-Receiver Calvin Ridley had a catch and a drop in the 7-on-7 periods. Ridley stayed on the ground a few moments after landing awkwardly early, but he got up and returned to action.

-Nick Westbrook-Ikhine had two catches in an early 7-on-7 period while working with Levis, but he had a bad drop on a Levis pass of 30-plus yards that would've been a big play.

-Cornerback Roger McCreary was around the football on Tuesday, and he broke up another deep ball intended for NWI.

-Cornerback Gabe Jeudy-Lally has made some plays this offseason, and that includes a break-up on a Levis pass intended for Hopkins in Tuesday's session.

-Receiver Jha'Quan Jackson showed strong hands after making a sideline catch, as McCreary tried to wrestle it away to no avail.

-Quarterback Mason Rudolph was 2-of-5 in a 7-on-7 period, with completions to running back Julius Chestnut and receiver Tre'Shaun Harrison. Rudolph threw too deep to Burks on a play downfield, and he was high on a throw to receiver Mason Kinsey.

-Rookie linebacker Cedric Gray made a nice break-up on a Rudolph pass intended for Chestnut.

-Quarterback Malik Willis was 3-of-5 in his 7-on-7 period, with completions to receiver Kyle Philips, tight end Chig Okonkwo and tight end Steven Stillanos.

-Okonkwo made a nice grab on the way to the sideline, and rookie James Williams tried to take it away. Okonkwo told the linebacker: "No, you can't have the ball" before finishing the rep.

Not spotted on the field at Tuesday's minicamp: Defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons, tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere, defensive lineman T'Vondre Sweat, defensive lineman TK McLendon, and receiver Colton Dowell.

-Cornerback L'Jarius Sneed was spotted at practice during the stretch portion, but he didn't take part in individual drills or 7-on-7 drills. Callahan said the team is working with Sneed to get him ready.

-Callahan said Sweat's absence is considered short-term as the team works with him in rehab. Callahan said there's a chance Sweat could be back on the field next week while making it clear he'll be back for training camp.

-Westbrook-Ikhine was back at practice after missing a day last week for the birth of his son.

Westbrook-Ikhine gave an update after practice:

-Kicker Nick Folk kicked in a special teams period, and looked to be a perfect 5-of-5 kicking field goals, including one from 56 yards out. Kicker Brayden Narveson, an undrafted free agent from North Carolina State, also converted on all three of his field goal attempts.

-Former Titans linebacker Tim Shaw attended Tuesday's practice.

-CBS and NFL Network analyst Charles Davis attended today's practice.

-At the end of practice, Callahan informed his dad, Bill, he'd been recognized as the PFWA 2024 Paul "Dr. Z" Zimmerman award winner.

Here's Callahan telling the story of him announcing the news to the team, and his dad:

-The Titans will return to the field for minicamp day No. 2 on Wednesday, and that session will also be open to media. The minicamp is scheduled to wrap up on Thursday.

-The Titans will wrap up OTAs next week with four dates scheduled, with six already in the books.
