Tennessee Titans Place Guard on Injured Reserve

The Tennessee Titans will be without one of their powerful run blockers for the final stretch of the regular season. The team placed offensive lineman Nate Davis on injured reserve, guaranteeing he'll miss the final three games on the schedule and potentially the Wildcard Round should the Titans make the playoffs. Davis suffered an ankle injury in the Titans' Week 15 17-14 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, exiting after 46 total snaps. He has started 12 games this season, earning a solid 70.6 overall grade from Pro Football Focus for his efforts.

Davis has been a big part of the Titans' perennially overpowering run game since joining the team in 2019. His arrival on the team coincided with Derrick Henry's ascension to superstardom; 2019 was the first of Henry's two seasons leading the league in rushing, and he has amassed an amazing 5807 rushing yards in 53 appearances since.

Davis entered the league as the Titans' 82nd overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. He immediately slotted in at right guard and has started 54 games in four seasons with the team. He'll hit unrestricted free agency following this season and should be in line for a multi-year deal with the Titans or elsewhere.
