Heading into their Week 5 matchup against the suddenly pass-happy Vikings, Gray attempted to put an end to the struggles, urging his bunch to ‘blow up’ the opposition, regardless of fines or injuries. “If you are worrying about that, you are not going to go out and try and blow the guy up,” Gray said, via The Tennessean. “Great football players have to put that out of their mind.

Kenny Britt not doing as well as the Titans had hoped

According to John Glennon of The Tennessean, wide receiver Kenny Britt isn’t doing as much as the Titans had hoped by now.
