The knee injury that sidelined Kendall Wright has provided another opportunity for Damian Williams to show his versatility.

A Titans wide receiver with the ability to play on the outside or in the slot Williams will be doing more of the latter for at least the next couple of weeks as Wright recovers from a sprained knee.

“A guy like (Giants receiver) Victor Cruz makes a lot of his money in the slot and that’s because it’s a matchup problem” Williams said. “A lot of times you get safeties and linebackers that you go up against that aren’t used to covering in space so that’s probably the thing I like most about it.

“But there are advantages to being outside too. There’s more true coverage — more man-to-man coverage — when you’re outside.”

Going into Saturday’s game against the Falcons Williams leads the Titans (0-2) in receiving yards (100) and yards per catch (16.7) and he’s tied for first in receptions (6).

Lofty goal: Defensive tackle Jurrell Casey made the play of the preseason for the Titans when he took the ball away from Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. It was recorded as a sack forced fumble and fumble recovery all in one.

The third-year pro is having a strong preseason and training camp.

“I feel like I am always good. I just want to keep getting better” said Casey who had 80 tackles and three sacks last season. “Like I tell everybody the goal I have is to reach the Hall of Fame so the way I can do it is by beating everybody out there.”

Looking ahead: The Titans still have preseason games against the Falcons and Vikings but defensive coordinator Jerry Gray said he’s been watching film of the Steelers since the day the schedule came out in April.

The Steelers host the Titans in the regular season opener on Sept. 8.

“Any time you play those cats you’d better watch them” Gray said. “I can’t say you look past Atlanta and Minnesota; it is unfair to those guys. … But we still have to be prepared for Pittsburgh.”
