The Tennessee Titans don’t have practice today so we’ll take the time to catch you up on what happened in yesterday’s training camp.
- Jake Locker came back down to earth yesterday with a very sobering 8 – 20 during the 2-minute drill while Hasselbeck went 17 – 22 with one pick. Locker did face a lot of blitzes, according to Munchak. He also said there was just sloppy play all around and the defense capitalized on it.
- Safety Robert Johnson made the only interception of camp yesterday. As John Glennon of the Tennessean noted, it was a much needed confidence booster for the third year player who has yet to make an impact as a Titan. He still has a lot to prove in my book, as well as many others. I also question the pick slightly as it came from a pass intended for Jared Cook and another pass intended for Cookie earlier this week was picked off by Witherspoon. It keeps that question alive of how far Cook has progressed. Sounds like a classic case of letting the ball come to you instead of going to the ball.
- Newly acquired safety Aaron Francisco was shaken up during practice but it sounded as if it wasn’t anything serious. Francisco wasn’t alone as MLB Colin McCarthy scraped his elbow and OG Hutchinson got a cut on the bridge of his nose that required stitches.
- Some of the biggest news was that the Titans finally came to terms with rookie WR Kendall Wright. Due to some restrictions from the CBA, Wright won’t be able to go full speed at practices (that means be involved in padded exercises) until Saturday.
We’re all anxious to see how Wright does in camp. He’s set for a big role in this offense after Britt’s setbacks and trouble. It’s too bad we have to wait until Saturday to really see him in action.
