After an off day on Saturday, the Tennessee Titans returned to the practice field for their ninth session of training camp on Sunday as the team prepares for its preseason opener on Thursday against the Baltimore Ravens.

Following practice, Titans head coach Mike Vrabel met with the media and one of the more standout quotes coming from him was about rookie linebacker, Jack Gibbens.

“Dr. Gibby (Vrabel’s nickname for Gibbens) is smart,” Vrabel said. “He’s picked up the defense extremely well. He’s going to be fun to watch playing in the game. He gets everybody lined up. He knows exactly what to do. He can help other guys. He’s always around the football. That’s kind of what we saw last year watching film at Minnesota.”

We pegged Gibbens as a longshot to make the roster at the start of training camp, but it appears we need to be paying more attention to the 2022 undrafted free agent.

Now, a look at the biggest takeaways from Day 9.

Wyatt: “I keep noticing defensive back Shakur Brown, who joined the team early in camp. Brown had a nice break-up on a ball intended for receiver Racey McMath.”
