- DeMarcus Faggins has overtaken Fred Bennett for a starting cornerback spot, according to John McClain.
- Running backs will play an important role in blocking against Miami, says McClain.
- Competition on the D-line might lead to Amobi Okoye being used situationally. He played his best game last week under that scenario, according to houstontexans.com.
- Tony Dungy on the Ravens: "They try to pound right at you. We're going to have to bow up and get ready to play that."
- Summer running in the sand pays off for Robert Mathis at this time of year, Phil Richards writes.
- Charlie Johnson's versatility makes him valuable, according to John Oehser of colts.com.
- Reggie Nelson and Mike Walker are out for the Denver game with knee injuries, writes Michael C. Wright.
- Another take on the friendship between Walker and Denver's Brandon Marshall, from Tania Ganguli.
- ESPN's Tom Jackson was in town this week working on a feature on the Titans defensive line, says Jim Wyatt. Also in the Titans Insider: Cortland Finnegan and Derrick Mason got fined $5,000 each for an incident during last week's Tennessee-Baltimore game.
