Heading into the Tennessee Titans‘ second preseason game of the Summer, one among the questions on everyone’s mind was how the young guys would do with numerous of the starters sitting. Sure, we all know who the celebs are on this team, except for Tennessee to actually make some noise within the AFC, they’ll need Herculean efforts from a number of the role players.
That means, albeit phasing a talent like Derrick Henry out of the offense isn’t a wise strategy that’s getting to fly, it might be nice, with the number of carries he’s had over the past two seasons if Tennessee had a complementary piece to spell him from time to time.
They may have their answer during a guy that seemingly came out of nowhere. They certainly weren’t looking in his direction. With the spotlight on guys like Darrynton Evans, Jeremy McNichols, and Brian Hill, Mekhi Sargent was an afterthought within the Tennessee Titans’ backfield battle. that’s he was an afterthought until Tennessee’s first preseason game versus the Atlanta Falcons.
He went for 58 yards on 16 carries therein one. What did he do for an encore? He shined again and turned the autoclave abreast of guys like Hill with another dominating performance. Try 16 carries for 78 yards on for size, and if that wasn’t enough, he helped get the scoring started for Tennessee, showcasing his ability as a receiver by way of reaching the top zone on a five-yard touchdown toss from the arm of Matt Barkley. His spot on the roster will probably come right down to how he performs on special teams and in pass protection. Believe it or not, despite the very fact that there’s just one preseason game remaining, we’re an extended way from the finishing line. The battle is getting intense for the Titans tailbacks, but thus far so good for Mekhi Sargent.
