David Thornton is all of the sudden back in the Titans' plans, and he's saying that he's saying he's still healthy enough to make an impact on the field. Fisher doesn't sound so sure that Thornton is ready to play like the Thornton we've been watching for a few years. It'll be important to see how he plays, at least until McRath is ready to comeback. The other option at LB is starting Tully on the outside with Witherspoon, then putting injury-prone Jamie Winborn in the middle.
John Clayton summarizes his recent visit with the Titans, and relays some concerns about Vince Young's maturity. Other bits of piercing insight that got Clayton into the NFL Hall of Fame: our backfield lacks punch without CJ2K. Stunning, I know.
Fisher and Vince Young met yesterday, and Fisher had very little to say since the league's investigation is still ongoing.
Follow us through the jump for a potentially generous gesture from Chris Johnson...
Chris Johnson will be making a donation to Nashville Flood Victims, but I can't find many specifics on it.
This story is a repackaging of John Glennon's inane story from yesterday's links, but the real news is a guy named Mark Wheeler is now covering the Titans for The City Paper. No idea who he is or where he comes from, but I'm already missing Terry McCormick.
Don Banks reports on the mediocre steady reaction of Jeff Fisher after a whole bushel of issues (VY's incident, McRath's suspension, Hood's injury, CJ2K's contract situation, etc.) went straight to the crapper over the past few days. We're all used to Fisher's veneer of stoicism by this point, so there's not a lot of new news here.
The Titans are hoping to fill the void left by Rod Hood's injury with internal candidates, but expect the team to take a look at some more street free agents before too long. They've already worked out about 300 of them in the offseason, so the list should already be pretty short.
