The season has finally arrived and as we look forward, it is important to look at injuries on the Tennessee Titans roster going into Week 1.

First thing’s first, Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver Corey Davis will be a full go for Week 1. According to ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe, Davis claims his hamstring is 90%. That is a great sign for the dynamic playmaker to make his rookie regular season debut.

Another great sign on the wide receiver injury front is Eric Decker is participating in practice leading up to the game. The veteran wide receiver has had an ankle injury for over a week now. The fact that he is practicing in full again shows that the Titans were taking precautions in the preseason to make sure the veteran is healthy for the regular season.

Offensive Tackle Taylor Lewan is listed on the team’s official injury report. This probably is not that big of a deal because Lewan is a hard-nosed football player that never seems to miss time. He practiced this week on a limited basis, but in all likelihood will be the starting left tackle on Sunday. Lewan has an ankle injury and was limited in practice.

The only other player listed on the Titans’ injury report for this week is LeShaun Sims. Sims has now been ruled OUT of Sunday’s game against the Raiders. According to the Tennessee Titans depth chart on their website, Sims is the starting cornerback opposite Logan Ryan. Look for rookie Adoree’ Jackson to get the start in his place.

All in all, the Titans look pretty healthy heading into the weekend. Having a healthy squad in the beginning of the season is the first step towards success in the NFL.
