Tennessee Titans cornerback and return specialist Adoree' Jackson was not in attendance on Tuesday as his team participated in OTAs. According to a Tuesday afternoon report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Jackson is currently in a walking boot as he continues to recover from offseason foot or ankle surgery.

In addition to serving as one of the Titans' three starting cornerbacks alongside the tandem of Malcolm Butler and Logan Ryan, the former USC Trojans speedster is often utilized in both kick return and punt return situation while sometimes even seeing time on offense depending on the package.
However, Jackson wasn't the only one absent from the Titans' offseason program on Tuesday afternoon with a trio of Tennessee players also missed out on the festivities.

The Titans have become one of the more intriguing teams in the league over the course of the last few seasons. No doubt a talented squad, the Titans have only reached the postseason once in the last three seasons despite stringing together three consecutive 9-7 regular seasons. With a very young core accompanied by a slew of veteran players, the Titans could remain competitive in the dangerous AFC South division for years to come — if Tennessee can put it all together, that is.
With the trio of the Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars all hanging around in the AFC South as well, it is worth noting that all four teams in the division have reached the playoffs at least once in the last two seasons.
