Quick Hits on the Titans From Wednesday


NASHVILLE – The Titans hit the practice field on Wednesday to continue preparations for Sunday's regular season opener at the New Orleans Saints.

Here's a look at the developments of the day, in quick-hitting fashion …

-Titans receiver Treylon Burks was on the practice field on Wednesday as the team ramped up prep work for Sunday's game.

Will he play on Sunday?

"You'll just have to wait to see," Burks said with a smile.

Burks returned to the practice field last week for the first time since suffering a knee injury back in August, while practicing against the Vikings in Minnesota.

Titans Coach Mike Vrabel said Burks has been doing more each day.

The Titans released their first Injury Report on Wednesday afternoon, and Burks was listed as a full participant. On Friday, when official designations are due, the Titans will have to list Burks as either questionable, doubtful, or out, or they won't list him at all.

Burks said he's feeling better and better.

"I feel great," Burks said. "I'm just going to keep doing exactly what the coaches and everybody has me doing, and we'll see from there."

-The Titans signed edge rusher Trevis Gipson to the team's active roster last week.

He's been assigned No. 51.

Gipson talked to reporters for the first time on Wednesday.

"It's been a transition, but I am excited to be here," said Gipson, who tallied 10 sacks over the last two years with the Bears, and 75 tackles in 40 career games since 2020. "The guys have welcomed me here pretty good. It's a beautiful facility, a beautiful city and I am ready to play ball, man, ready to get after those Saints."

Gipson recorded seven sacks, 37 tackles, five forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 2021.

"The way they play football here, they let their guys go, they let 'em rush, let 'em play off each other," Gipson said. "I am excited to be back in this kind of scheme and anxious to see what it brings to my season this year."

-The Titans elected seven captains for the 2023 season.

The seven players elected: QB Ryan Tannehill, RB Derrick Henry, S Kevin Byard, DL Jeffery Simmons, LB Azeez Al-Shaair, C Aaron Brewer, LS Morgan Cox.

Meanwhile, OLB Arden Key (calf) and quarterback Will Levis (quad) were full participants, along with Burks.
