LenDale Questionable

LenDale White missed practice again yesterday and is questionable for the game on Sunday.

"If he doesn't practice (today) it is going to be tough to have him available for the game," Coach Jeff Fisher said Thursday. "It remains to be seen how he'll be. He can come back quickly, but he is not doing any better."

The same guys that missed practice on Wednesday (Bennett, Olson, LaBoy, and Amano) all missed practice on Thursday.  Kicker Rob Bironas was added to the injury list with a groin injury.  Kickers.  If he cannot go the kicking duties will fall on Crag Hentrich.  Where is Gary Anderson when you need him?

There is an article from captain sunshine Paul Kuharsky today about Schwartz being ready to put his mark on the defense.  My advice for Mr. Schwartz would be to hurry up and put that mark on the defense or he will be looking to mark elsewhere next season.  Schwartz looks at defensive statistics differntly than the NFL does.

He looks at different barometers, the big three being points allowed, third-down defense and red zone defense.

The Titans are 27th in points per game, allowing 27 per game with only seven points coming against the offense or special teams. Offenses are converting 39.1 percent of third downs against the Titans, who rank 22nd in that category.

And the defense is giving up touchdowns 62.5 percent of the time an offense makes it inside the 20, tying the Titans for 27th in the league.

Hopefully the defense can build on the great effort they put up last week.

This afternoon I will have some info on an interesting website I found yesterday and hopefully a LenDale White update.  I know you are on pins and needles.
