The Titans want Jake Locker to scramble smarter, using good judgment and avoiding unnecessary contact, says David Climer of The Tennessean. "You have to understand what the situation of the game is -- if 2 or 3 yards is worth it or not," Locker said. "You have to be conscious of that before you go to the line of scrimmage."

The Titans periodically play a snap of defense with all 11 players standing up. John Glennon talked to Derrick Morgan and Jurrell Casey about how it works.

Kendall Wright is on the All-Underrated Team and Michael Roos is on the All-Declining Team, per Pete Prisco of CBS Sports.

Who are the most indispensable Titans? I’m surprised by Climer’s choice at No. 3, though the case can be made.

Bernard Pollard was put off by Johnny Manziel’s middle finger to the Washington bench, says Jim Wyatt.

Zach Mettenberger has played more snaps in the preseason than any rookie quarterbacks except Teddy Bridgewater and Manziel, says David Boclair of the Nashville Post.

Leon Washington and Dexter McCluster will get return chances at some point in the next two preseason games, says Joe Fann of the Titans website.
