Wednesday's Quick Hits: Adoree Jackson's Mindset, an Update on Nate Davis, and the Titans Injury Report

Adoree

NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Wednesday at Saint Thomas Sports Park to continue preparations for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Here's a look at three quick hits from Wednesday:

Adoree's Mindset

Titans return man Adoree' Jackson isn't sure if he'll line up as the team's punt returner on Sunday in Atlanta.

He does know this:

"Of course I am hoping I can be out there and be the returner, but if I am not back there I will be cheering on the next guy who is back there," Jackson said on Wednesday. "I'll be excited for that person if it's not me. I am never going to hold my head down or be disappointed. I just have to keep working and keeping getting better and the next opportunity I get, I have to make the most of it."

Jackson has worked as the team's punt returner this season, along with Adam Humphries.

His muffed punt against the Jaguars, which was cashed in for a touchdown, has his job returning punts in question.

Titans coach Mike Vrabel said the two will remain involved.

Jackson, who has averaged 8.7 yards per return, said he appreciates the support he's received from his teammates.

"For me, just being able to go out there and have the guys around me," Jackson said. "They support me and I appreciate that. … I made a mistake, but I am not intentionally trying to mess up."

Nate Davis

Vrabel has mentioned the possibility of rookie guard Nate Davis playing for the first time this Sunday, but he's not committing to that yet.

 Davis, the team's third round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, has been inactive the first three games of the regular season as he works his way back from missing time during camp with an injury. Jamil Douglas has started the first three games for the Titans at right guard, while Kevin Pamphile, the projected as the starter at the beginning of the season, has been sidelined.

"I think we are able to get pads on today and have the emphasis on the run game and our first and second down practice, and what we feel like is going to give us a chance to win the game," Vrabel said. "I would say (Nate) is going to have every opportunity to continue to develop and we'll see where he's at at the end of the week."
