NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Titans hit the field for day four of training camp Monday, wrapping up the first week of practice with their second straight day in pads.
Here are some observations from the practice that was closed to the public:
- Rookie third round pick Nate Davis ran extensively with the first team offensive line Monday. Davis played right guard between center Ben Jones and right tackle Jack Conklin. Left guard Rodger Saffold also returned Monday after getting a maintenance day Sunday.
- Marcus Mariota had another solid day, though he wasn’t quite as sharp as Sunday when he was near flawless. He faced some significant pressure in the team period and made one really bad throw, fluttering a deep ball towards Tajae Sharpe that was deflected by Malcolm Butler and intercepted by rookie safety Amani Hooker, who continues to impress in camp.
- Sharpe has had a strong training camp so far and made another nice catch on a deep ball in the individual period. The catch of the day once again came from Corey Davis, who skied to make a one handed, leaping grab over Butler. Cameron Batson continues to impress, but left Monday’s practice after falling hard during a catch attempt.
- Tight ends My’Cole Pruitt and Anthony Firkser got valuable time last year due to injuries and both were the recipients of several targets Monday. With Jonnu Smith our injured, each guy is trying to prove they are worthy of a roster spot again this year behind Delanie Walker.
- Second year outside linebacker Harold Landry looks like a much more confident player. For all the talk about the need for him to become a consistent pass rusher, Mike Vrabel pointed out Monday that his package has been expanded this season to do much more than that. You can see that with Landry popping up frequently to stop a run or even make a play in pass coverage.
The Titans will have their first off day of training camp Tuesday. They will return to work Wednesday for a practice from 9:50-noon that will be open to fans.
