TAMPA — Carlton Davis wants to clear his head after giving up three touchdowns to the Texans last week, but the biggest problem is his toe injury.

Davis and fellow Bucs starting cornerback Jamel Dean are questionable for Sunday’s game against the Titans at Raymond James Stadium.

Dean is in concussion protocol and yet to be cleared by an independent neurologist but had full participation Friday. Davis was limited in practice and will be a game-time decision, head coach Todd Bowles said.

The Bucs have second-year cornerback Zyon McCollum ready to start if either Dean or Davis can’t go. But if both are out, Bowles said they would elevate rookie Keenan Isaac or Derrek Pitts from the practice squad.

The only Bucs player ruled out for Sunday is linebacker Josh Hayes, who has a concussion. Guard Matt Feiler, who missed the past two games with a knee injury, is doubtful.

Tackle Luke Goedeke (foot) and nosetackle Vita Vea (groin) had full participation in practice Friday.
