NASHVILLE — The Titans returned to the practice field on Thursday at Saint Thomas Sports Park to continue preparations for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.
Here’s a look at three quick hits from Thursday:
Praise for Corey Davis
Titans receiver Corey Davis is coming off his best game of the season, and after practice Titans coach Mike Vrabel praised him for his work.
“I think he’s much improved,” Vrabel said of Davis. “I tell Corey that you can’t control when you get the football, the only thing that you can control is that you’re open. It’s that every time you run a route that you’re open, every time that you block that your guys not making the play, and that you’re finishing longer than the guy with the ball, so I think he’s done those things. We have to continue to when guys are open, get them the ball. Then when we get you the ball, catch it and make something happen.
“He runs great routes, he’s got strong hands, can make contested catches like we saw last week with a guy kind of on his back fighting through, and made a great catch.”
Davis had five catches for 91 yards and a touchdown against the Falcons. On the season he has 11 catches for 173 yards.
Davis likes the jumpstart and said he won’t slow down.
“I think we can be dangerous as a receiving corps,” Davis said. “But we have to be consistent and we have to be willing to work to get it. We have the pieces and we have to put it all together.
“We have to keep track and keep doing what we do.”
Derrick Henry’s a Frank Gore Fan
Bills running back Frank Gore is just the 4th player in NFL history to eclipse the 15,000-yard mark.
From afar, Titans running back Derrick Henry has admired Gore.
Following a game last year, he got a chance meet Gore, who is in his 15th NFL season.
“Frank Gore from the U,” Henry said, referring to Miami (Fla.), where Gore played in college. “He started off with the 49ers and I actually got a chance to talk to him when he was with the Colts.
“I love his game. He’s a true Hall of Famer, first ballot. He’s a great back. Hopefully God blesses me (so I can play as long as him). He has played a long time, and he’s played good football for a long time as well.”
Linebacker Cameron Wake (hamstring) and running back David Fluellen (knee) did not practice.
Tight end Delanie Walker (knee) returned to practice after missing on Wednesday.
Offensive lineman Kevin Pamphile (knee) practiced on a limited basis.
Safety Kenny Vaccaro (groin), and linebacker Daren Bates (ankle) appear on the injury report but both players practice in full.
