Toe surgery is the reason Corey Davis is on PUP

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Corey Davis’ current standing on the Titans’ physically unable to perform list is the result of offseason surgery on a troublesome big toe, from which doctors had to remove a piece.

Indications are he’s fine and while the specifics of his timetable are unknown he should be on course to be ready for the season.


The first time we learned that Davis had a toe issue during 2019 was in February, when Taylor Lewan mentioned Davis played with turf toe on an episode of the “Bussin’ with the Boys” podcast. [Unlocked]

The Titans declined Davis’ fifth-year option for 2021 on May 1st.

The fifth pick overall in the 2017 draft, Davis has 142 catches for 1,867 yards and six touchdowns in his three seasons.

He’s a hard-working, soft-spoken team-first guy who’s capable of big plays and is a big piece of the run game. He can often be found taking care of the final defender on big runs by Derrick Henry or big catches by other teammates.

But he's targeted inconsistently and A.J. Brown exploded onto the scene as the team's top receiver last season

Davis missed the Titans’ regular-season game against Kansas City with a hip injury and was also on the injury report during the season Week 16 with an ankle and Week 17 with a concussion.

After Tajae Sharpe left for Minnesota as a free agent and the Titans didn’t spend a pick in a receiver-heavy draft on the position, the depth behind A.J. Brown, Davis and Adam Humphries is unproven. Rashard Davis won the team's offseason award among offensive players.
