The Titans have created some enthusiasm this preseason, and they’ve done it without their top draft pick.

But apparently they’re confident first-rounder Corey Davis is going to be ready to start the regular season.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the No. 5 overall pick is expected to be ready for the opener against the Raiders.

Davis has missed most of the last month and all the preseason games with a hamstring problem, but they’ve brought him along slowly.

They’re fortunate to have depth there with Eric Decker and Rishard Matthews, but the hope is that Davis becomes a long-term No. 1 option for Marcus Mariota in the passing game.

With an already solid rushing attack, the Titans have a chance to make a big step in the AFC South this season.
