The 17-34 defeat against Colts today has nothing on Corey Davis compared to the tragic incident that has happened to him. The Titans wide receiver’s brother, who was fighting with kidney cancer, has breathed his last on Wednesday, and a devastated Davis couldn’t hold onto his tears before the match at the Nissan Stadium.

Titus, elder brother of Corey Davis was battling a rare  form of kidney cancer

Titus Davis, like his younger brother, was a WR himself who played college football for the Central Michigan Chippewas for four seasons and set records for most receiving yards (3,700) and touchdown receptions (37) in a single season in the team’s history.

In 2015, he was picked up as an undrafted free agent by San Diego Chargers but was released shortly after. He later had short stints with Jets, Bills, and Bears, but never made an appearance for either of those teams.

Unfortunately, the 27-year-old was diagnosed with renal medullary carcinoma which is one of the rarest yet most dangerous forms of kidney cancer earlier this year. After months of struggle, the older Davis breathed his last this Wednesday.

The two Davis siblings shared a strong bond through football that the NFL scene was well known about, courtesy of Corey, who also revealed that Titus is the sole reason he has taken up football as a career.

“He’s the sole reason I’m playing this sport today,” Corey Davis said in an interview in 2016, “we’re always working and getting better together. He’s helped me, even when I was at Western [Michigan], and he was at Central. He’s helped me find things I need to do better and improve on.”

Losing his inspiration has undoubtedly left him shredded from the inside, as Corey was seen in tears before Titans took on Colts today for their Week 10 clash.

Corey covered 67 receiving yards, with an average of 13.4 as Titans suffered their third defeat of the season. They are now 2nd in the AFC South and will take on Ravens next.
