With his career with the Titans hanging on by a thread, Chris Henry is doing what he should have done all last year: bust his hump to get on the special teams units. Not doing that last year was a big part of why he was inactive for 16 games the year after he was the team's second round draft pick. Well, that and not being as talented as several other RBs on the roster.
Fisher says Kenny Britt's hamstring is almost completely healed, and the team is now focused on getting him back into proper conditioning routine before he rejoins practice. I think that's a good idea because asking him to jump right into a full-speed regimen may just create more problems than it's worth.
Jim Wyatt has notes from yesterday's practice session, including a great moment in trash talking by our boy Keith Bulluck:
• Cornerback Nick Harper let quarterback Kerry Collins off the hook on an underthrown pass intended for receiver Nate Washington. It slipped though Harper’s hands, and he heard about it from linebacker Keith Bulluck. "Good thing you got your eyes fixed," said Bulluck, referring to Harper’s LASIK surgery in the offseason.

The Titans' WRs say they've all improved since last year, and now they're anxious to show it to the world.
Despite distracting contract situations, Keith Bulluck and the Boom King are staying focused on their goals for this year.
Right now in this locker room, it's a lot more laid back -- players, coaches, the organization. In Houston, it's a little bit tense... Coming here after the season they had last year, it's pretty laid back. There is a been-there, done-that confidence, that's a good feeling coming off 13-3... I think it's harder to play tense, it's like walking on egg shells.
