NASHVILLE, Tenn. –** The Titans just wrapped up practice on Thursday at Saint Thomas Sports Park.
On Sunday, the team will face the Chicago Bears in preseason game No.3.
Three quick hits from today:
Decker, Davis update**
Titans receiver Eric Decker is expected to miss his second straight game because of an ankle injury. Rookie receiver Corey Davis also won't play against the Bears.
With just a week left before the team's final preseason game in Kansas City, the likelihood of Davis playing against the Chiefs in Week 4 has probably decreased in the past few days as well.
"He is coming along," Titans coach Mike Mularkey said of Davis, who is dealing with a hamstring injury. "I think we are going to look a little harder after this game to see where he is at. He is running on (equipment) that's not a real treadmill, but something that is at least taking the pressure off of his lower half. He is running pretty well with that, and when he starts running with a treadmill that will be a good (indication) of where we're at with him."
Davis has been sidelined since the first week of camp. On Sunday, Mularkey indicated Davis was on track to possibly play against the Chiefs, but it's clear the Titans are being especially careful with their first-round pick. The main goal is to have him ready for the season opener against the Raiders.
"I know that he is frustrated," Mularkey said of Davis. "Nobody is down on him, nobody is disappointed. There's nothing you can do. It's the injury he has and we are not disappointed. We want to help him get back and we know he wants to come back."
G.I. Jane Day
The 101st Airborne extended an invitation to female staff members and spouses of players and male staff members to attend G.I. Jane Day on Thursday at the Army base in Fort Campbell.
Betsy Mularkey was one of 40 women who made the trip.
"Last I saw was Betsy and Heidi Watterson (wife of strength coach Steve Watterson) in a helicopter, they were Facetiming me from up in the helicopter, which I thought was a really fabulous experience," Mularkey said. "I think's there's 38 to 40 women up there today, really getting shown the ropes similar to what the players did – the obstacle course, the rappelling wall, I think they are actually getting to fire live weapons.
"It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience for these women."
In addition to Decker and Davis, receiver Mekale McKay, defensive back Curtis Riley, fullback Jalston Fowler and linebacker Nate Palmer did not practice again on Thursday.
Nose tackle Antwaun Woods left practice early as a precaution after suffering a strained hip muscle.
Safety Da'Norris Searcy was excused for personal reasons.
