NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of Tennessee Titans training camp:
- Cornerback Coty Sensabaugh, left guard Taylor Lewan and center Chris Spencer worked with the starters today. Brian Schwenke was out with a leg injury that head coach Ken Whisenhunt categorized as day-today. Antonio Johnson was also out with a leg injury and is day-to-day. Delanie Walker (shoulder) and Michael Preston (fear of a concussion) were both back to work after getting hurt Tuesday.
- Left tackle Michael Roos jumped offside in a team period and Jurrell Casey, the rusher trying to get around him said, “It’s you.”
- Nice catches: Nate Washington plucked a low dart from Jake Locker; Rico Richardson reached over Ri'Shad Anderson to collect a deep pass up the right side from Locker; Marc Mariani made a lovely over-the-shoulder catch from Locker.
- Locker targets in seven-on-seven period: Complete to Craig Stevens, incomplete to Washington broken up by Jason McCourty, complete to Kendall Wright, complete to Preston, complete deep to Derek Hagan. Hagan later had a nice fingertip catch while going full speed out of bounds and a drop from Charlie Whitehurst with Tommie Campbell well off.
- In seven-on-seven, playing as the nickel, Sensabaugh worked in front of Mariani to pick off Zach Mettenberger. Bernard Pollard dropped what should have been an interception of Locker intended for Walker.
- Struggling quarterback Tyler Wilson threw an interception to Moise Fokou, a player who has been completely invisible in camp until that moment.
- Justin Hunter dropped a ball from Locker that he got got both hands on, but Hunter also caught a bomb over cornerback Marc Anthony from Mattenberger.
- Crowd noise from four speakers during a team period was deafening. Michael Griffin said it was Seattle-level noise. Neither side seemed to struggle with it. Offensive coordinator Jason Michael said quarterback and linemen will use different things at different times when they have to use a silent count, so the defense can’t predict if the center, or a guard helping the center is signaling for the snap or if they are doing something else.
- On third-and-short work, coaches called for one live snap where Bishop Sankey or Jackie Battle (sorry I don’t know which) was tackled. They went back to thudding the back, but Whisenhunt said there will be some occasions where there are some live snaps.
- Maikon Bonani and Travis Coons each got three field goal chances in a period. They each hit from 33 and 38, and each missed from 46. Bonani said his miss was an aiming error based on the breeze.
- The Titans practice at 2:50 CT on Friday and it’s open to the public.
