Jimmy and I harped on it for a while last night, but it's imperative that Derrick Morgan and Jason Jones are healthy and ready to make an impact on Sunday. Those two guys can change the complexion and tone of our entire defense when they're healthy, and that's exactly what we need coming out of last week's disappointing effort.
Chris Hope is still struggling with a shoulder injury, and he could see his 49-game start streak fall as a result. Jordan Babineaux will be the one who gets the shot as a starter if Hope can't go.
Quinn Johnson was brought in to fill the gap while Ahmard Hall is suspended, but he didn't get much of a chance to show the Titans' coaching staff what he can do last Sunday. The same is trues for blocking TE Daniel Graham, as both players suffered from an early deficit and increased use of 3-wide sets.
Munchak is getting used to the realities of the new CBA, especially the limits on padded practices during the season.
The Titans are ready for the Ravens' dirty play, and the offensive line especially isn't going to take it lying down:
Leroy Harris: "We're going to protect Chris as much as possible."
Said guard Jake Scott, "I am not going to accuse anyone of anything. But if they're going to take their shots, we'll take ours, too. We can play that way."
Speedy Ravens WR Lee Evans is back in a walking boot. His status for Sunday will be something important to watch as game day gets closer.
Former-Titans LB Rennie Curran and a woman were both charged with simple battery in Atlanta on Monday.
