The Titans finished the game yesterday without Nate Washington and Jason McCourty. Mike Munchak seemed cautiously optimistic that both guys could be ready for the Saints' game this Sunday at his Monday press conference.
Click through the jump for what he said about both players.On Washington:
We think he is going to be OK, it’s going to be a day-to-day thing with an ankle. We all know that he pushed it a little bit and went back in there. He knew how important the game was, he made a big catch for us on the third down to keep the drive going for us in the third quarter. He is having a great year and there is no doubt that it will be important to have him in the lineup. All indications are that he will be questionable during the week but we assume that he will be available on Sunday.
He still has some concussion-type symptoms, mild. It’s something that will probably be day-by-day and see where he is by the end of the week. With those, you have to be very careful these days with that and we will be. We will have to see how he is by Friday, that Thursday, Friday area to see how he comes around. He is feeling pretty good today so it’s just a matter if he continues to feel that way, kind of like Jared Cook a couple of weeks ago had one or had one similar. It’s just how quickly he feels good and how quickly he can pass a quick test and he would be out there. We will just have to wait and see on him.
The Titans are going to need all hands on deck to get a victory this week. Hopefully both of these guys are quick healers.
