Titans training camp report, 8-13

by

There hasn’t been much to report on from Titans training camp the last two days (special teams are boring) but I’ve got a little for you today in the following random notes.
It was good to see Jevon Kearse practicing again after sitting out the last two open practices. Jacob Ford was out today.
So was Nick Harper, still being held out after his concussion Saturday night. Eric King, who’s been backing up Cortland Finnegan at RCB, worked with the first team defense at LCB.
Dan Loper got some work at RT with the first team o-line.
William Hayes continued to struggle in d-line drills. At one point, Wash yelled, “Just forget everything I’ve ever told you! You don’t need to be thinking out here!” Or something akin to that.
In 11-on-11 team practice, Vince continued to inconsistent. Not counting dumpoffs to his backs and just counting his passes downfield, he probably was off target as often as he threw catchable balls. One was particularly poor, landing a good six feet in front of his receiver. His best pass was a deep out to Alge Crumpler.
Other plays of note included Jeremy Cain popping Stephen Tulloch, rocking him back on his heels and drawing cheers, hoots and hollers from the offense.
King showed excellent coverage on a bomb intended for Chris Davis (#16). A play or two later, Kerry Collins connected deep down the middle to Edward Williams.
I was surprised to see Quinton Ganther split out wide on several plays.
Practice concluded with two-minute drills, which were actually shortened to 40 or 45 seconds each, and there were several pass deflections. Backup C Jason Murphy caught one at the line of scrimmage and advanced it about ten yards, giving the offense more to cheer about. The defense got the last laugh, however, not allowing a score.
Only three more practices will be open and I’m hoping I’ll be able to attend them all.

    Ganther earning a roster spot as a WR?….hmmm…very interesting

    Does this mean our last couple of WR are seriously that bad or was this just a trick/random play?
    I guess Q is truly aiming to become a jack of all trades on the O.
    Interesting…

    Andrew,
    Just wanted to pop in and say thanks for the firsthand reports on the Titans. Out here in Vegas, we Titans fans have little coverage to go on.
    Total Titans is one of the sites I visit every day, so keep up the good work

    Just a guess here, but the Titans may be putting a few plays in the playbook for a RB splitting out wide. You’d think that was a package for Chris Johnson, though. Maybe the substitutions/playcalling weren’t in synch/screwed up and Q happened to be in the huddle at the time. I don’t see any way he’s used as a WR and although he’s outperforming Henry right now, Henry still has the inside track on making the roster. Ganther can’t just beat him out by a little bit, he has to do it by a wide margin.
    Robert, thanks for the kind words. My pleasure. Thanks also for being a regular reader.
