The Titans released Davis on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
With Marcus Mariota now reasonably healthy after contending with an elbow injury and Blaine Gabbert having cleared the concussion protocol, there was no longer a need for the Titans to keep Davis around as a third-string quarterback. The 29-year-old didn't earn any snaps during his stint with Tennessee, which lasted just two weeks.
Davis will be the backup option for starter Marcus Mariota (elbow) Sunday against the Eagles, as Blaine Gabbert (concussion) is listed as inactive for the contest.
Davis signed with Tennessee just five days earlier, but will get thrown into the mix as an emergency quarterback option Sunday. While Marcus Mariota has been deemed healthy enough to start despite an elbow injury, he's been unable to shed his injury-prone label to date, and any type of setback would likely lead to Davis seeing game action.
The Seahawks waived Davis (undisclosed) from injured reserve SaturdayBen Arthur of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports.
Davis and the Seahawks reached an injury settlement, leading to his release. He's a career backup, but Davis was pushed from his position behind Russell Wilson after a poor preseason, which caused Seattle to trade for Brett Hundley.
Davis was expected to get cut after the Seahawks traded for Brett Hundley, but the Seahawks found a place for him on injured reserve. He won't be able to play in the 2018 campaign unless he reaches an injury settlement.
Davis completed two of three passes for minus-1 yard during Friday's 21-20 preseason loss to the Vikings.
QB Alex McGough, who is competing with Davis for the backup job, produced a dud as well, completing five of 14 passes for 140 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Neither signal caller has looked good through the first three preseason games, and if that carries into the final exhibition game the Seahawks may ponder free-agent options.
