After Corey Davis missed all of preseason with a hamstring injury, he returned for the first two games of the season, only to re-injure the leg again.
Now, Davis, the fifth pick in last spring’s draft, has been declared out for this week and won’t return until he is completely past the injury.
“We’re trying to get him past this so we’re not dealing with this in November,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said.
Mularkey added that Davis is especially agitated that he is unable to contribute.
“It’s tough anytime you have to watch a guy that can’t play. It’s very frustrating. He’s so competitive,” Mularkey said. “He thinks he’s letting us down. But he’s not letting anybody down. We’re dealing with the NFL; we have injuries. I know he’s frustrated that he can’t play.”
Davis had six catches for 69 yards in the opener, but was limited against Jacksonville with one catch for four yards.
To help alleviate the shortage at receiver with Davis out, the Titans promoted Zach Pascal from the practice squad after they placed linebacker Aaron Wallace on injured reserve.
Running back DeMarco Murray, who also did not practice due to a hamstring injury, is day-to-day and will have to show over the next couple of days that he is capable of playing Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
