Titans' LP Field submerged by flood
By ESPN.com staff
Tennessee Titans executive VP Steve Underwood surveys the flood damage at LP Field.
Muddy waters poured over the banks of Nashville's swollen Cumberland River on Monday, spilling into Music City's historic downtown streets and causing damage to the city's professional sports facilities.
Across downtown on the river's east bank, water covered the grass inside LP Field, home of the Titans. The field's athletic surface was covered with water, nearly reaching the first row of seats.
In Nashville's MetroCenter, which has been evacuated for fear of a levee being compromised, the team's headquarters and practice fields are also at risk.
"Water rose to [the] edge of the practice fields and the bubble, but has fallen back some," Robbie Bohren, the team's director of media relations, told The Tennessean.
