He starred as a receiver at Central Michigan while breaking Antonio Brown‘s records for the most receiving yards and touchdowns in a career. He spent some time in the NFL on practice squads but never appeared in a game.
Corey Davis went to Western Michigan and remained close to his brother:

#Titans WR Corey Davis lost his older brother Titus today. Only 27 yrs old. I remember how excited Corey was when I asked him about when he first played vs. his older brother at CMU as a freshman for WMU and got to be on the same field. Prayers for the Davis family. @TheCDavis84 https://t.co/flEyalLG68
He will play his team’s Week 10 game with a heavy heart, continuing what has been a difficult year for the 25-year-old. Davis missed three games after being placed on the COVID-19 list during the team’s outbreak earlier in the season.
When healthy, the 6’3″, 209-pound Illinois native has been an impact player with three touchdowns in six games. His 61.5 receiving yards per game would also be a career high over a full season after being drafted fifth overall in 2017.
Davis will hope to help the Titans (6-2) in an important game for the AFC South standings. The visiting Colts are in second place at 5-3.
