  Rookie WR Davis can't shake hamstring issues

Corey Davis' rookie season continues to be derailed by a hamstring injury that flared up again in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

The Tennessee Titans have already declared Davis out for this week's game against Seattle, and have bought themselves some insurance at the position by bringing rookie wide receiver Zach Pascal up from the practice squad to give them five receivers on game day.

Davis initially sustained the injury during the first week of training camp and missed all of the preseason. He was declared good to go for the regular season, and looked good in the season opener, playing 42 snaps. He returned for the regular season and in the opener caught six passes for 69 yards in a loss to the Raiders.

But in Sunday's win over Jacksonville, the injury came back, and it sounds as if the Titans will exercise extreme caution to make sure Davis doesn't have another setback.

"We're trying to get him past this so we're not dealing with this in November," Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said.

Mularkey added that Davis is especially agitated that he is unable to contribute.

"It's tough anytime you have to watch a guy that can't play. It's very frustrating. He's so competitive," Mularkey said. "He thinks he's letting us down. But he's not letting anybody down. We're dealing with the NFL; we have injuries. I know he's frustrated that he can't play."

Davis' job in the starting lineup falls back on veteran Eric Decker, who has yet to really get on track himself after missing time with an ankle injury. It also opens up an opportunity for Taywan Taylor, a third-round pick, to play more snaps. Taylor had a 42-yard catch on a go route last week and is easily the Titans' fastest option at wide receiver.

Davis isn't the only Titan suffering with a hamstring issue - which seems to be injury du jour for the Titans this season.

Safety Johnathan Cyprien will miss a second straight week with the injury against Seattle, and running back DeMarco Murray's status is up in the air was well due to a reinjuring of his hamstring on Sunday.



SERIES HISTORY: 16th regular-season meeting. Seahawks lead series, 10-5. This series has not had many meetings, especially since the Seahawks moved to the NFC. One of the most memorable moments between the two came at 2009 in Seattle when Chris Johnson broke the 2,000-yard mark in the season finale that year.
