Titans tight end Walker enjoying best start yet – The Washington Post
"Titans tight end Delanie Walker is following up the best season of his career with an even better start this year. Now the veteran is multi-tasking as well.The Titans placed their second tight end on injured reserve Wednesday in the past three weeks, leaving Walker as the only player tight end who has played each game. Veteran Craig Stevens was switched to injured reserve Oct. 18 with a quadriceps injury, and Taylor Thompson joined him with a partially torn posterior cruciate ligament that kept him out of the past five games."
"The Titans don’t dare use the ‘R’ word as they enter the second half of the season (Sunday against the Ravens).Coming off the bye, coaches and players alike are echoing the company line and providing examples of how teams like the Titans — who stumbled through a 2-6 record in the first half — can turn it around and at least gain respectability in the second half."
"Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt says he believes rookie quarterback Zach Mettenbergertook advantage of the team’s bye week to prepare for his second career start.“Getting the time during the bye week was good, because like I said, we got a lot of plays,” Whisenhunt said, according to John Glennon of The Tennessean. “(Mettenberger) got the majority of those, which is invaluable, and hopefully that’ll help us as we go forward."
"Coty Sensabaugh has returned to practice for the Tennessee Titans and now the only question that remains is what type of role will he fill after missing three games.With Sensabaugh out, rookie Marqueston Huff took over the nickelback role for the Titans, and has fared OK there during his trial. In the dime package, second-year pro Daimion Stafford moved to strong safety and George Wilson moved into the dimeback spot. So where do the pieces fit now that Sensabaugh is ready to return?"
"One way or another, the muddy future of the Rams in St. Louis will gain clarity in the next 60 days.Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon participated in a 24-minute conference call with local reporters Wednesday morning with the objective to discuss the state and city’s desire to retain the NFL franchise.The Rams can opt out of their current lease on the Edward Jones Dome after this season because of the “first tier” clause that was in the initial lease the team signed when it moved from Los Angeles. If the Rams want to move back to Los Angeles or anywhere else for the 2015 season, they must notify the league of their intent by Feb. 15."
"Saying his knees wouldn’t withstand the punishment the NFL deals out, running back Marcus Lattimore retired from the league Wednesday. Lattimore, 23, suffered serious injuries to both knees in college. He says he chose a higher quality of life over the promise of millions of dollars.We’ll also note that Lattimore seems to have had good advisers: As rumors of his possible retirement spread this weekend, ESPN reported that he “has a tax-free $1.7 million insurance policy that he should be able to collect on” if his career ends for medical reasons, citing the athlete’s agent."
