There’s no question that Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis, who is entering his third season in the NFL, has the potential to be a Pro-Bowl wide receiver.
But whether or not Davis can stay healthy is another question.
The former Western Michigan standout, who wasn’t able to participate in the 2017 NFL Draft combine because of an ankle injury, has dealt with hamstring issues during his first two seasons as a pro.
As a rookie, Davis missed most of pre-season and five regular season games because of a hamstring injury.
Last season, Davis again battled through hamstring issues, but he wasn’t forced to miss a game (though he was limited in practice at times).
Entering the 2019 season, Davis is trying to be proactive when it comes to his hamstrings in order to prevent any issues this upcoming season.

It’s unclear exactly what Davis is doing to prevent further issues, but anything is better than nothing.
In order for the Titans (and quarterback Marcus Mariota) to be successful, they need Davis on the field as much as possible in 2019. Davis proved last season, especially in the Titans’ wins against the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots, that he can be a game-changing player. Assuming he stays healthy and continues his progression, he will turn into a star in 2019 (and he’ll help the Titans win a lot of games).
As far as the health aspect goes, Davis still has the majority of his NFL career ahead of him. If he can get through the 2019 season unscathed, he should be able to shed the injury prone label he’s earned during his first two years in the league.
