With only 30 days remaining before the start to the NFL Regular Season, stories are developing fast out of training camps around the league.
Throughout the season, we'll be covering the Tennessee Titans as much as possible, simply because the team is in our backyard.
A few thoughts on the team and where they are today:
|Amano is out for the year.|
Mike Munchak confirmed fears when he announced that Eugene Amano, starting center, would be out for the season with a torn triceps injury. Amano will need surgery and a full year to recover in order to return to the Titans' lineup.
Although in a close battle with reserve center Kevin Matthews, Amano was thought to have the starting job locked up going into the preseason. The injury comes after a major changing of the guard for the Titans' offensive line, as Jake Scott hit free agency and Steve Hutchinson was brought in from Minnesota.
The injury will require Munchak to get a little creative on the line, and Chris Johnson's "renaissance" could be a little premature if the line has trouble with chemistry as the season starts. However, Chris Johnson is reportedly in "football" shape, adding much needed bulk and conditioning that he lacked last year.
With an unproven starting line, it looks like he might need it.
Kenny Britt, 15 Touchdowns to 8 Arrests:
Everyone blasting the Kendall Wright pick is now eating crow, as it seems Kenny Britt is at it again with his ridiculous offseason antics and general "lots of questions" rhetoric.
|Britt might be headed to the bench.|
|Wright has been lighting it up in practice.|
Wright was just the insurance the Titans needed should Britt get injured or into trouble. He is a little undersized, but he's a solid option over the middle and a potential deep threat to spread the field for Cook, Washington, Williams and most importantly, CJ2K.
Locker, not Hasselbeck, the favorite to start in Tennessee:
|Locker has the tools to win games.|
Given his age and his skill set, Locker makes sense to start. The Washington Huskies product has a wildly strong arm, youthful legs and a penchant for play-making that should make him the favorite.
|But so does Hasselbeck.|
From the outside looking in, the Titans' certain have a good problem on their hands with two capable quarterbacks on the roster. Only time will tell.
We'll have more as the season starts to develop.
