Observations from Tuesday's Titans Practice


NASHVILLE – The Titans hit the field at Saint Thomas Sports Park on Tuesday for the fourth practice of training camp open to media.

Here's a look at what stood out:

-Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill was back at practice after missing on Monday. Tannehill threw some nice balls, and he continues to look very comfortable. His best throw of the day went to receiver A.J. Brown downfield, but he nearly threw his first interception of camp, too. Keep reading to find out who almost got 'em …

-Running back Derrick Henry continues to do extra work any time he gets a chance. At one point during the middle portion of practice, Henry took his jersey and shoulder pads off and went to work shirtless in the sandpit. Henry made a number of nice runs, and he's caught the ball well during the early portion of camp, too.

-I thought the secondary got the best of the one-on-one matchups with the receivers. Defensive backs Malcolm Butler, Kristian Fulton, Chris Jackson, Tye Smith, and Chris Milton all made nice breakups. Smith and Jackson nearly had interceptions in the period, in fact. Chris Jackson continues to impress me with his scrappy play. Smith showed up several times himself with nice coverage.

-Receivers Rashard Davis, Cameron Batson, Cody Hollister, and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine all had catches in 7-on-7.

-Linebacker Rashaan Evans is the guy who should have picked off Tannehill. Evans was in a perfect spot in the middle of the field, but he let the football go off his hands in a team period.

-Cornerback Adoree' Jackson has also impressed me during the early portion of camp. He's been physical defending A.J. Brown on a number of plays, knocking the ball away. It happened again on Tuesday in a team period.

-Defensive Ibraheim Campbell, formerly with the Packers, intercepted quarterback Logan Woodside in a 7-on-7 period. It was Woodside's first interception of camp.

-Tannehill completed a short pass to receiver Rashard Davis, but it was running back Senorise Perry's block downfield that got my attention on the play.

-Linebacker Harold Landry flashed with pressure on several plays, and on one play he had help from blitzing safety Amani Hooker.

-In the 7-on-7 period, the targets were guilty of too many drops. Running back Dalyn Dawkins and receiver Adam Humphries let catchable balls escape their grasp, although Tannehill's pass to Humphries was a little behind the receiver.

-Receiver Corey Davis has looked good following his return to practice. He made a nice catch and showed some explosiveness in the 7-on-7 drills.

-Woodside had more of an up-and-down day on Tuesday, but he threw a beauty of a pass to tight end MyCole Pruitt for a 20-plus yard gain. On the next play, Woodside threw low and outside to receiver Cody Hollister. Woodside bounced back later with a bullet to Rashard Davis.

-Quarterback Cole McDonald completed passes to tight end Tommy Hudson and receiver Mason Kinsey in the 7-on-7 period.

-Cameron Batson, Adam Humphries, Rashard Davis and Mason Kinsey all caught punts in a special teams period.

-Kicker Greg Joseph was 5-of-5 in a field goal period, and he's now a perfect 15-of-15 in camp. Kicker Tucker McCann was 5-of-5, and he's now 13-of-15 on his opportunities.

-Receiver Kalif Raymond and cornerback Kareem Orr did not practice.

-Linebacker Vic Beasley, defensive lineman Jack Crawford and linebacker Josh Smith still aren't practicing. Beasley remains on the Non-Football injury list, and Crawford and Smith remain on the team's Reserve-COVID 19 list.

-Titans coach Mike Vrabel said the team plans to practice on Friday at Nissan Stadium. The practice will be closed to the public.

Next practice: Thursday, 10:45 am-12:15 p.m.
