RB - TEN
This Week Outlook
Titans running back Javian Hawkins only got 10 carries in Saturday's preseason game, but he was efficient in tallying up 49 yards and a score while also catching his lone target for seven yards.
It was Hawkins' first game with the Titans after being waived by the Atlanta Falcons earlier this week and he certainly played well enough to warrant a roster spot. Hawkins figures to be a depth piece on the Titans roster but has shown the explosiveness to eventually carve out a role for himself.
Rookie RB Javian Hawkins signed with the Tennessee Titans on Thursday. The news comes just a few days after he was waived by the Atlanta Falcons.
Hawkins didn't do much in the opportunity he was given while with the Falcons, so he'll look to have more success with the Titans in their final preseason game on Saturday as he fights for a roster spot.
The Falcons released RB Javian Hawkins.
This means Qadree Ollison will be the primary backup to Mike Davis in Atlanta.
Falcons RB Javian Hawkins rushed for 46 yards on five attempts in the Falcons loss against the Dolphins in Week 2 of the preseason.
Hawkins looked solid and had a nice 30-yard run against the Dolphin. While he only got five carries, he had an impressive 9.2 yards per carry. If Hawkins can keep producing, he might be able to get some playing time during the regular season.
Atlanta Falcons rookie RB Javian Hawkins totaled five carries for two yards and caught his lone target for two yards against the Tennessee Titans on Friday.
Hawkins is a small, elusive playmaker who rushed for 1,525 yards during his freshman year at Louisville. He failed to generate production on the opportunities against the Titans on Friday, rushing for two yards on five carries. Hawkins did catch his one target for two yards but averaging 0.4 YPC is not the way to earn a roster spot. The undrafted rookie will look for a bounce-back performance in Week 2 of the preseason.
