Examining the Titans' options at fullback

By Paul Kuharsky

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Quinn Johnson is doubtful for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh because of a quad injury. If he can’t go, the Tennessee Titans need to sort out a fullback for Sunday.

GM Ruston Webster told us on Nashville radio that the team has to have one.

“It would be tough for us in our offense and the way that we are playing to go without a fullback,” he said. “Some teams do, some teams use tight ends, But offensively, the fullback is part of our running game especially. So Quinn is banged up and we’re in the process of making a decision there on what to do.”

The options:
Coach Mike Munchak on Mooney: “Well, he’s someone we have confidence in if that’s what we need to do. That’s the one good thing about having someone here that knows what we’re doing. So, that’ll be one of our options, but we’ll just wait and see how this thing works out.”
