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.
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.
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.
The Titans practice at 2:50 CT on Friday and it’s open to the public.
