Tennessee Titans Morning Links: The Zombies Are Getting Smarter Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Everybody is justifiably focused on Adrian Peterson coming in to town, but something tells me the Titans aren't overlooking studly MLB E.J. Henderson or this celebrated defensive line.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 In the good news department, Justin Gage returned to practice.  Nick Harper didn't, but perhaps that means more run for the impressive (so far) youngster Eric King.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Titans back-up QB Chris Simms (that still hasn't sunk in... maybe because they didn't show him at all on TV Sunday) reached out to Packers CB Al Harris, who recently ruptured his spleen.  First question: what the heck is a spleen?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 First sign the Zombies have infiltrated the biological sciences, or a valuable study aimed at protecting future football players: former Titan great Frank Wycheck may agree to donate his brain to science after his death.  Either the scientists will study the effects of multiple concussions and lots of hits, or the zombies will eat it when their blood lust becomes unbearable.  (Contrary to what was reported by the New York Times, Wycheck has not made a final decision yet.)

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Vince Young is close to being healthy enough to practice, and Jeff Fisher says he'll be our no. 2 on the depth chart once he's there... cross your fingers and hope this works out.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 I may be a little late with the link, but the USA Today comes through with a good profile on Chris Crazy Legs Johnson, with one note that may make some of you tithe a little more:

• On his speed: "It is God-given, really. There are things people can do to make them a little faster, but no one can be that fast unless it's God-given."


Tennessee_titans_30x21 Titans Tackle Michael Roos and linbacker David Throton talk about getting a kick out of watching Kerry Collins run and cracking on him for his gray beard.  Expect a letter from the AARP soon, boys.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 How do you know your team is starting to turn heads?  They get profiled by Canadian media.
