The Tennessee Titans hit the practice field for their latest session of organized team activities on Tuesday, which was also the last practice that will be open to the media.

After Tennessee wraps up its voluntary OTAs on Thursday, the team will turn its attention to mandatory minicamp, which will run from June 14-16.

We got two important pieces of information prior to practice:

Titans offensive line coach Keith Carter revealed that the left guard battle is between Aaron Brewer and Jamarco Jones, and he noted Dillon Radunz has been working predominantly at right tackle, echoing a previous statement from head coach Mike Vrabel (read more here).

Titans wide receivers coach Rob Moore revealed that first-round pick and wide receiver Treylon Burks has asthma, which would explain why he’s been spotted using an inhaler and is having issues staying on the practice field.

You can read more about that story here, and you can check out what Vrabel had to say about Burks’ asthma and his absence from practice on Tuesday right here.

Now, a look at the most notable things to happen during practice on Tuesday.

Backup RB notes

ESPN’s Turron Davenport: “Trenton Cannon got to the hole in a hurry during team period and showed some shiftiness at the 2nd level.”

Davenport: “Rookie RB Julius Chestnut continues to remind me of Natrone Means. Big man with quick feet.”

Kicker update

Syndication: HawkCentral

Davenport: “Caleb Shudak good on 33, 35, wide left on 40, good from 43 then hurt himself on his fifth attempt on 47.”

Three key Titans still wearing yellow pullovers

Syndication: The Tennessean

Jim Wyatt of Titans Online: “Cornerback Caleb Farley, receiver Robert Woods, cornerback Kristian Fulton and receiver Racey McMath were decked out in the yellow pullover jerseys once again during team and 7-on-7 periods, signifying they’re still in the ‘return to play portion’ of their rehab.”

Three Titans limited or out

Wyatt: “Offensive lineman Aaron Brewer, cornerback Elijah Molden and linebacker Monty Rice were all spotted, but their work in today’s session was either limited or they were held out.”

Malik Willis update

Wyatt: “Quarterback Malik Willis has had his moments in OTAs, some good, some not-so-good. His first snap under center on Tuesday ended up on the ground, and he didn’t field his second snap cleanly either. Willis made some nice throws in the session, including a bullet to receiver Racey McMath in a team period, but several of his Tuesday tosses missed their targets either because of good plays by the defense or throws that were off target a bit.”

Nice catch by Chig

Wyatt: “There was a lot of action in the first 7-on-7 period of the day, which included a beautiful touchdown toss from Tannehill to rookie tight end Chig Okonkwo, who caught the ball over his shoulder with cornerback Buster Skrine in coverage.”

Good day for Logan Woodside

Syndication: The Tennessean

Wyatt: “Quarterback Logan Woodside made a number of nice throws on Tuesday, including a pair of completions to Kyle Philips, a completion to Swaim and a touchdown toss to receiver Reggie Roberson Jr.”

Date for next open session

Wyatt: “The Titans will be back on the field for OTA No.7 on Thursday, but that session will be closed to media. The next open practice is scheduled for next Tuesday, the first day of the team’s mandatory minicamp.”
