Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham saw his late-season progress hit a roadblock during Sunday’s 34-6 loss to the Houston Texans.

Green-Bekham, who had more than 100 yards receiving in two of the three games prior, was held without a catch on three targets.

Tennessee interim head coach Mike Mularkey attributed Green-Beckham’s ineffectiveness to a combination of Houston’s defensive tactics along with rookie mistakes.

Via Tennessee’s official website:

“Some of it was the coverage,” Mularkey said. “They were playing a coverage that you could roll a corner and a safety over the top on him.

“Some of that was Dorial with some of the mistake he made. He had a number of mistakes on splits and depths and things that he’s had, again, that a young receiver is going to have, Tre McBride included. But some of that is self-inflicted that we need to get better at.”

The Titans’ 2015 second-round draft pick, Green-Beckham caught six passes for 113 yards in the Week 15 loss to the New England Patriots. He caught five passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee’s Week 13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
