Titans WR Treylon Burks Thankful to Be Back, and Feeling Better


NASHVILLE – The sight of Treylon Burks being carted off the field back on November 2 in Pittsburgh was a scary one.

The Titans receiver, sidelined for three games following that moment due to a concussion, doesn't really remember it.

"I ain't going to lie to you – I don't recall really much from Pittsburgh," Burks said on Wednesday. "Other than I heard we didn't win that game."

Burks has seen the replay.

"Really just a bad fall," he said. "There was really nothing I could do to prevent it."

Burks missed games against the Buccaneers, Jaguars and Panthers.

Burks returned to action and played 10 snaps in Sunday's game against the Colts, and the team plans to ramp his work up more moving forward.

The Titans travel to face the Miami Dolphins on Monday night.

The Titans gave Burks time to recover from the concussion. He didn't even take part in meetings the weeks after he was sidelined with his most recent concussion, and he returned to the practice field last week.

"I would say I feel good," Burks said. "Things happen, but keep going about the way that I am, and let God take care of the rest. … (Coach Vrabel), I think he handled it the best way for the team, and for my safety. All I can do is keep leaning on (coaches and trainers) and my teammates, and doing whatever is right for the team and myself."

Burks, who also suffered a concussion last December in Philadelphia, said "everybody that plays the game is vulnerable to concussions.

"I don't really think about it that much," Burks said. "I just go out there and play the game, and whatever is in God's (plan) it happens, and I know that He'll take of (me) from here on out.

"I have been feeling better ever since, and I am just ready to get out and do what I do. It is hard (to miss), being a football player, when you love the game, missing games is not fun at all. So, it has been hard, but I am thankful that I am back in the position I am, to play."
