Titans removed Tajae Sharpe (foot) from the active/PUP.

It means Sharpe is now eligible to practice after sitting out the start of camp recovering from June foot surgery. The fifth-round sophomore could get some first-team run in practice with both Eric Decker (ankle) and Corey Davis (hamstring) sidelined, but he will at best be a reserve when everyone is healthy.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Sunday that Corey Davis (hamstring) remains on track to play in a preseason game.

He's missed the Titans' first two preseason games with a hamstring injury after recovering from ankle surgery all spring. Nevertheless, Mularkey said Davis' recovery is "ahead of schedule." If Davis can shake the injury bug, he will offer the highest fantasy football ceiling in Tennessee's receiver corps.

Derrick Henry rushed 16 times for 36 yards and two touchdowns in the Titans' second preseason game against the Panthers.

DeMarco Murray rested for this one, so Henry played the bulk of the first half and was the clear focal point of the offense when Matt Cassel entered the game. Henry couldn't get much going on his first few runs, but he blew around the edge and stiff-armed two defenders on his 17-yard touchdown before later scoring from one yard away on fourth-and-goal. Henry added three catches for 17 yards. If Murray ever goes down, Henry will be a fantasy RB1.

Marcus Mariota completed 6-of-8 passes for 61 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' second preseason game against the Panthers.

Mariota played a pair of series, leading a field goal drive on the first before finishing the second off with a four-yard touchdown to Delanie Walker who was wide open on a corner route. Mariota's first pass was a 20-yard bullet on a deep in to rookie WR Taywan Taylor. On the next play, Mariota kept it on a read-option for a nine-yard run. Looking healthy off last year's broken fibula, Mariota has top-five fantasy QB upside with a now-loaded skill group.

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game.

Murray was healthy enough to suit up, but didn't take part in pregame warmups. The Titans are taking it slow despite his return to practice. Derrick Henry will continue to rep with the starters.
Aug 19 - 2:42 PM

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) returned to practice Monday.

Murray missed a little under two weeks. The Titans were never going to rush Murray back onto the field. It gave them an excuse to see more of Derrick Henry with the ones. Murray could see some run in the second preseason game.
Aug 14 - 9:58 PM

Taywan Taylor caught 4-of-9 targets for 56 yards in Saturday's preseason opener.

Taylor skying for a 42-yard catch early in the third quarter was easily the play of the game in an otherwise stunningly-dull affair. Taylor also committed a drop, but had the looks of a genuine playmaker as he ran with the Titans' backups against the Jets' reserves. The No. 72 overall pick of the draft can earn himself a role on offense this summer. He's an exciting own in Dynasty leagues.

ESPN's Cameron Wolfe reports "several Titans coaches and players believe" sophomore S Kevin Byard is "on his way to stardom."

Tennessee looks set to take another step forward this season, but their secondary will have to improve for that to happen. GM Jon Robinson did his best to add reinforcements over the offseason, signing CB Logan Ryan and S Johnathan Cyprien while drafting CB Adoree' Jackson in the first round, but Byard becoming a quality starter would be a big help. After finishing last season strong, it looks like the former third-rounder is well on his way.

Corey Davis (hamstring) said he's still week to week.

Davis has already been out for six days, and a return doesn't appear to be in sight. His goal remains to be ready for Week 1. But we've seen in the past that rookies who miss significant time in training camp tend to have slow starts to the season. Davis remains the favorite to open the year as the Titans' starting X receiver.

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) will sit out the Titans' preseason opener on Saturday.

The Titans were never going to risk Murray's health this weekend. He has 11 days to get ready for Tennessee's second exhibition game.
Aug 8 - 6:25 PM

Susie Adams Smith has put her 33 percent of the Titans up for sale.

It threatens to exacerbate the Titans' ownership issues. The team has been owned in three equal 33 percent shares since former owner Bud Adams' death in 2013. The league has insisted on a controlling owner, something Adams' heirs have been unable to figure out. Adams' daughter Amy Adams Strunk is the current figurehead. Susie's sale could have 33 percent of the team owned by an outsider.
Aug 8 - 6:15 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is "close" to a return.

Murray has been sidelined by a hamstring injury for a week, but he was able to get in some work during individual drills on Monday. "We're easing him back into it," Mularkey said. "We'll see how he feels after what he did and hopefully we'll get him out here (on Tuesday)." Derrick Henry has reportedly shined during Murray's absence, but the veteran still is the favorite for the lead role.

Marcus Mariota will play in the Titans' preseason opener Saturday night.

It is not a surprise considering Mariota has been a full-go throughout camp, but it is a great indication he is fully healed from his December leg break. Mariota likely will not play many snaps, but coach Mike Mularkey said he wants the quarterback "to get his feet wet a little bit." With several shiny new weapons in the passing game, Mariota carries high-end upside from his QB12 ADP.
Aug 8 - 8:31 AM

ESPN Titans reporter Cameron Wolfe believes WR Tajae Sharpe (foot) is a candidate to start the season on reserve/PUP.

Sharpe remains out of practice and on the active/PUP list a couple weeks into camp. He apparently isn't nearing a return from foot surgery and is falling way behind. He's listed deep down the Titans' initial depth chart as a third-stringer. No matter what, Sharpe isn't going to have much of a role after flopping as a rookie.

Aug 7 - 6:17 PM

Titans third-round WR Taywan Taylor is listed as a third-team wideout on Tennessee's initial unofficial depth chart.

Rishard Matthews and first-rounder Corey Davis are listed as the starters, with Eric Decker and Tre McBride (surprisingly) with the twos. Taylor has seen reps with the ones in camp, working out of the slot. But if everyone stays healthy, it's hard to see Taylor making much of a year-one impact after the signing of Decker.
