Tennessean writers Joe Rexrode and Jason Wolf break down the Titans 7-3 preseason loss to the Jets at MetLife Stadium.

A look at players whose stock rose and fell during the Titans’ 7-3 loss to the Jets in the preseason opener Saturday night at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

UP

Jayon Brown: Fifth-round rookie outside linebacker Jayon Brown had a team-high four tackles in the first half, including a tackle for loss. Brown made plays in coverage and against the run, and can earn a role as a nickel linebacker this season.

Kalan Reed: The 2016 seventh-round draft pick received playing time at cornerback and safety and finished with a team-high six tackles.

Akeem Judd: The undrafted rookie running back from Ole Miss got into the game in the second half — before seventh-round pick Khalfani Muhammad — and ended up leading the team with 66 rushing yards on six carries. The yards per carry is skewed by a 40-yard burst, but he still averaged better than five yards on the other five touches.

DOWN

Logan Ryan: The Titans’ top free agent pickup this offseason gave up completions each time he was targeted, allowing three catches for 77 yards, including a 53-yard pickup by Robby Anderson.

Alex Tanney: The backup quarterback received extensive playing time, but will need to play far better to push Matt Cassel for the job behind Marcus Mariota. Tanney finished 11-of-27 for 132 yards and turned the ball over twice, including an interception in the red zone. It wasn’t all his fault. He was sacked seven times.

► Rexrode: Titans loss good in most important way – the Mariota way

Jonathan Krause: The undrafted receiver out of Vanderbilt has looked impressive at times, but struggles with consistency, a big issue with Titans coach Mike Mularkey. Krause almost had a big catch, but failed to maintain possession as he hit the ground.
