Tennessee Titans 2022 first-round pick and wide receiver Treylon Burks had a rough first day of rookie minicamp, which began on Friday afternoon.

According to multiple beat writers on the ground, Burks looked gassed and had to leave the field early. He would later return during team period, but once again exited shortly thereafter. He was also spotted using an inhaler.

Obviously this is not how you want things to go for a rookie (and especially a first-round pick who has the kind of pressure on him that Burks has) in his practice debut, but let’s not get crazy here.

Everyone just take a deep breath and settle down; we’re going to be OK.

Here’s a look at Burks in action before his day ended.

Burks didn’t speak to the media after the session, but head coach Mike Vrabel touched on the issue.

“I think it’s hard to think that they can recreate with a trainer how we do things,” Vrabel explained. “And we see that with guys that have come back and started with our offseason program, and guys that have joined a few weeks in; it’s just different. I know that they’re working and they think that they are trying to get in shape, but that’s just not the case. That’s something that we have to focus on and try to make sure that we’re getting some work in with all of them. We’re trying to be as smart as we possibly can.”

We’ll have a full recap with news, notes and video of all the Titans’ draft picks taking part in Day 1 of rookie minicamp shortly.

Spoiler: it wasn’t all bad.
