Tennessee Titans: Nate Davis on his way, and other snap count takeaways
There are three big takeaways from the Tennessee Titans’ snap counts from the Week 4 game versus the Atlanta Falcons.
The tally of snap counts for Tennessee Titans players from Week 4 both gives us hope and teach us a thing or two about how the team is going to use some players.
The hope comes in when looking at the snap counts of rookie right guard Nate Davis and running back Derrick Henry. When looking at edge rusher Cameron Wake’s playing time in Week 4, I think it’s safe to say we’re picking up a trend with the veteran’s snap counts.
Here’s a look at the snap counts on the offensive side of the ball.
And, now the defensive side of the ball.
Before we get to the takeaways, a few notes.
-Safety Kevin Byard, as well as cornerbacks Malcolm Butler and Logan Ryan, were the only Titans defenders to play every snap.
-Outside linebacker Reggie Gilbert saw 48 snaps (60 percent) after seeing just eight snaps (15 percent) in his Titans debut last week. He also doubled fellow linebacker Kamalei Correa’s snaps.
-Defensive tackle Isaiah Mack had a slight edge (23 snaps) over Brent Ubran (15 snaps). I continue to say the Titans’ best defensive line consists of Mack, DaQuan Jones, and Jurrell Casey.
-Tight end Delanie Walker only played 20 snaps, but there was a reason for that. He explained after the game the Titans were just trying to manage the knee injury he was dealing with during the week. I wouldn’t expect that to continue, especially in closer games.
Now, on to the biggest takeaways from these snap counts.
