Tennessee Titans training camp day 2: Jack Conklin leaves early, more
Here are all the latest news and notes from the Tennessee Titans’ second day at practice in training camp.
Day two of the Tennessee Titans’ training camp practices took place on Saturday and was the first that was open to fans. You can check out the full list of open practices here.
Before practice began, Jim Wyatt of Titans Online reported that the Titans signed defensive back Jonathan Crawford to the 90-man roster. Crawford was an undrafted free agent originally signed by Tennessee, but he was later released. The Titans have decided to bring him back.
Now on to the rest of what happened on day two.
Jack Conklin leaves practice early, Walker a bit banged up
Tennessee Titans right tackle Jack Conklin had his day cut short, and tight end Delanie Walker continues to look good, although he did get a bit banged up. He finished the day doing light drills.
Austin Pasztor filled in for Conklin during 11 on 11’s, and Jamil Douglas was once again at left guard.
After practice, Mike Vrabel said he expects Conklin to be back out there on Sunday.
No word yet on what happened to Conklin, but precaution is king during training camp. Wide receiver Cameron Batson limped off at one point, but he returned shortly thereafter.
No A.J. Brown or Derrick Henry
Neither A.J. Brown nor Derrick Henry were on the practice field this morning for the Tennessee Titans.
While Brown wasn’t at the full practice, he did do some work with Corey Davis after. That is certainly a good sign.
Vrabel had no update on Henry.
We’re still awaiting further updates on both. On Friday, head coach Mike Vrabel said Brown and Henry were day-to-day. It was expected both would miss practice today since there is simply no reason to rush either back out there this early in the process.
Marcus Mariota making progress?
Adam Humphries is lookin’ good
Wide receiver Adam Humphries was looking sharp on day two.
There is a lot to be excited about with Humphries, as he’s a talented receiver and the best slot man quarterback Marcus Mariota has ever had. He should easily help improve Mariota’s career passer rating to the slot in 2019.
Jeffery Simmons, Jonnu Smith, Jurrell Casey working on the side
No surprise here, as defensive linemen Jeffery Simmons and Jurrell Casey were working on the side field, along with tight end Jonnu Smith, for the second day in a row.
Neither Simmons nor Casey had a brace on their knee at first, but Simmons later added one when he began to do more intense things.
Ryan Succop should be ready for start of season
Tajae Sharpe with the catch of the day?
Wide receiver Tajae Sharpe reeled this bad boy in over cornerback Malcolm Butler.
Anthony Ratliff-Williams had himself a day
Wide receiver Anthony Ratliff-Williams turned some heads on Saturday.
Humphries, Jackson and Batson for PR?
Vrabel later added Jackson to the mix, despite the earlier report.
