Kyle Philips Gearing Up For Consistent 2023 Season
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kyle Philips has a chance to establish himself in 2023 in spite of his injury problems.
Kyle Philips got snaps during his rookie year due to the departures of A.J Brown and Julio Jones. He started encouragingly, but hamstring and shoulder issues saw him placed on injured reserve after Week 4.
Only Treylon Burks and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine return to the Titans having gathered at least 100 receiving yards in 2022. Aside from new recruit Chris Moore, there isn’t an intimidating amount of competition in Tennessee’s WR room.

Kyle Philips has spent the offseason trying to become more physically robust while retaining his speed.
“Last year I came in as a rookie, real nervous, new team, a bunch of guys I didn’t know,” Philips said.
“Now it feels a lot different. I am a lot more comfortable with the coaches, and all the guys around here. I know more about what to expect. So, I am having a lot more fun.
“I don’t get hurt too often, but it happened and it’s out of the way now. I was able to take what I could from it, grow from it, and learn going forward,” Philips said.
“This offseason has been putting good healthy weight on, learning this offense, conditioning, running routes and getting used to new teammates.”
“I want to put some good weight on, but I don’t want to lose my quickness and my speed,” Philips said. “I’m going to try to keep it going, but just keep it a steady process.
“Maybe I am a forgotten guy to some, but I don’t pay attention to that,” Philips said. “I focus on what I need to, which is to learn this offense, get to know some new teammates, and get better every day.”
