Observations from Titans Training Camp on Tuesday

Observations from Titans Training Camp on Tuesday

-The Titans spent most of today’s practice in “Call It” periods, which meant the team went unscripted while rolling through a ton of plays.

-The offense – and quarterback Ryan Tannehill – responded to a so-so day on Monday in grand fashion on Tuesday. Tannehill was 5-of-6 on a drive to start practice, connecting on throws to Treylon Burks, Dontrell Hilliard, Robert Woods (it was nice bullet throw), Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and again to Hilliard.

-On the next drive, Tannehill went 5-of-6 again, this time connecting with Westbrook-Ikhine and tight end Austin Hooper along with three completions to receiver Racey McMath. Tannehill is now a combined 50-of-66 in 7-on-7 and team periods combined in camp, with no interceptions.

-McMath deserves a few extra lines in here, because he was the star of the day on offense. McMath got open behind Fulton on his first catch, and then he made a sideline catch with Caleb Farley defending him on the next play. McMath finished off a scoring drive with a diving touchdown catch down the middle of the field, in the end zone. He got up slowly and headed inside with trainers after the play, but he later returned.

-Farley made a nice break-up early on a ball intended for Westbrook-Ikhine, and he nearly intercepted Logan Woodside on a pass to Dez Fitzpatrick late in the session. But Farley was also victimized on a few plays on Tuesday as well.

-Burks made a highlight-reel catch early when he went up to catch a ball in the middle of the field.

-I’ve noticed running back Hassan Haskins more of late, and his teammates have been noticing him as well. Haskins busted to the outside on a nice run early, fighting off linebacker Dylan Cole as he made his way downfield. At one point, Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan shouted: “Way to fight 2-5! That’s a Michigan kid!”

-Defensive lineman Naquan Jones stuffed Haskins on one of his runs early.

-Running back Jordan Wilkins made a nice run late in practice, but he lost a ball earlier in the session and defensive lineman Kevin Strong ended up with it.

-Quarterback Malik Willis spoke to reporters after practice, and I wrote a story about Willis for the web site. CLICK HERE to read it. Willis made some nice throws on Tuesday, but he also misfired on a few.
