Tennessee Titans starting center Eugene Amano injured his right triceps in a collision in team drills Thursday night.
Amano left the field holding his arm - the one he using on snaps - and was escorted to the locker room.
''He got it caught it caught. I think a helmet hit, but I'm not sure,'' coach Mike Munchak said. ''A lot of times once the soreness settles down, it's not an issue.''
Amano is fighting for his starting job with Kevin Matthews, who sat out practice because of concussion symptoms. Fernando Velasco, battling for the starting right guard spot with Leroy Harris, finished the practice at center.

One year after a lengthy holdout impacted the Tennessee Titans in a negative way, the Titans avoided another potentially ensnarling situation by signing first-round pick Kendall Wright on Tuesday.
In a 9-7 season in 2011 with a new coaching staff at the helm, Chris Johnson's holdout -- which preceded his least productive pro season -- might have made the difference between the...
Tennessee Titans offensive coordiantor Chris Palmer is very excited about rookie wide receiver Kendall Wright and feels like he’s going to be a star.
“I’ve been fortunate in my career (to have coached) Andre Johnson, as a rookie, had 975 yards. Terry Glenn as a rookie, had 90 catches,” Palmer said via Rotoworld.com. “I felt good about those guys, and I feel...
For four seasons now, Fernando Velasco has been looking for an opportunity.
The undrafted free agent first came to the Titans in 2008 and promptly got injured at the start of his first training camp. Since that time, he spent nearly two years on the practice squad and last year as a backup guard and center.
But now, Velasco is finally getting a chance to be considered for a starting...
Back when we did the offseason round of positional analysis, Andrew was kind enough to write up our look at the running back position. Had that been my task, you would've ended up with a lot of words like "!%#!#" and ^!#$%" as I got progressively more annoyed while writing the piece and remembering the 2011 season. By now, though, it's been weeks since I&...
After previewing the quarterbacks and the running backs, it's time to turn our attention to the other backfield position, the fullback, in our preseason positional analysis series.For the past six seasons, the Titans' starting fullback has been Ahmard Hall. The former Texas Longhorn's contract expired following the end of the 2011 season, though, and the Titans elected...
Kendall Wright finally signed his contract with the Tennessee Titans to make it official as training is already underway.
Wright and Jackson Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon were the only unsigned rookies up to this point.
According to sources, Wright’s deal is worth$8.2 million over a four years along with a $4.47 million signing bonus. Not too shabby.
Now it’s time for...
The Titans have plenty of sidebars that will make training camp a little more interesting to follow than usual. There is, of course, the Kenny Britt saga, with the talented wide receiver beginning training camp on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list, and his arrest the week before camp opened for DUI at an army post in Fort Campbell, Ky., about an hour northwest of Nashville...
According to Charley Casserly of the NFL Network via Evan Silva of Rotoworld.com, Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson is on a “mission” this season.
“What the Titans have told me, is that this guy has come to camp on a mission,” said Casserly per Silva.
This sounds like very good news for fantasy football players as well as fans of the Titans. I expect...
Now I know its been made clear that Pittsburgh and Mike Wallace aren’t parting ways, but that doesn’t mean we can’t imagine. Plenty of teams could use the speedster’s services. Not to mention willing to show Mike the money.
The Titans are a young team fit to make a push in the coming years. Chris Johnson was signed long-term last season, and rookie quarterback Jake Locker...
