With the pectoral injury that Zach Brown suffered last week, Zaviar Gooden is now one of your starting inside linebackers.  Is he ready for that?  We will find out as the year goes along.  We didn't notice Gooden after Brown went out on Sunday.  That means he wasn't terrible.

The good news for the Titans is that Gooden will come off the field a good bit of the time when the Titans are in something other than their base package.
