Bishop Sankey got a vote of confidence from Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt earlier this week.
Whisenhunt said that the fumble issues that have plagued the rookie running back in preseason, are not indicative of him and attributed the problem to a technique and footwork issue.
“He needs to get as many reps as he can from the standpoint of what he has to do. Protections, and then...
Ken Whisenhunt and Charlie Whitehurst aren’t ready to declare the Tennessee Titans' No. 2 quarterback out for Saturday’s game at Atlanta.
But Whitehurst has not practiced since injuring the pinkie on his throwing hand on Friday night against the Saints in New Orleans.
He was vague about what’s wrong with it in a way his coach will surely appreciate.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans are looking for Coty Sensabaugh and Blidi Wreh-Wilson to replace departed Pro Bowl cornerback Alterraun Verner, and coach Ken Whisenhunt sees no reason to make a decision just yet.
And he isn't.
''The competition's still going,'' Whisenhunt said Thursday.
The Titans visit Atlanta on Saturday night, and Sensabaugh...

Even after all those injuries and all those missed games, Jake Locker remains willing to put his body in harm's way.
And he does so with the endorsement of his coach, Ken Whisenhunt.
Locker is being encouraged to run for yardage when the opportunity presents itself, particularly when his receivers are covered and there is a clear lane. Whisenhunt just requests that his quarterback...
Tennessee Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt announced today that Johnny Manziel would not start for the team in their season opener “mostly on account of the fact that he doesn’t play for us,” he said. Whisenhunt made the announcement at a press conference the team teased by saying that “huge breaking news” would be announced. Four […]

A while back I wrote why I felt Bishop Sankey was
the biggest beneficiary on the offense. However, after
breaking things down there’s one other player that should
be encouraged to reap benefits. That player is budding
3rd year receiver Kendall Wright.
Though he only reached the end zone twice, Wright
did manage to push himself into the top 10...
Tennessee Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt cautioned those who believe that the ball continue issues of Bishop Sankey this preseason could cost him offensive touches.
Whisenhunt said that Sankey was “not a fumbler” according to Terry McCormick of Titans Insider. The coach blamed the rookies inability to hold onto the ball on techniques and footwork.
Right now Shonn Green is the top...
Wide receiver Justin Hunter was the star of the show for the Titans on Friday night, catching four passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns in their game against the Saints.
It was a pretty good way for Hunter to show that he was more than “Just Another Guy,” an assessment that coach Ken Whisenhunt agreed with when discussing Hunter and the rest of the team on Saturday. Whisenhunt...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- With the first preseason game a wash, both literally and figuratively, Titans quarterback Jake Locker finally got his first real test Friday night running the new offense.
After reviewing game film, Titans first-year coach Ken Whisenhunt said today that Locker passed with flying colors during the two offensive series the first-team offense played in the 31-24...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints both have opened preseason games by driving the field for touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans.
Not with Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees on the field, but their backups.
It's causing flashbacks to the Titans' struggles in the recent past, not the stingy, physical unit Tennessee wants with new defensive coordinator...

It would be easy to blame the Titans' early defensive struggles last week against the Green Bay Packers on the fact that it was the first game in a new defensive scheme and under a new defensive coordinator.
But coach Ken Whisenhunt isn't accepting that as an excuse for his first-team defense, which allowed the Packers to march 64 yards and score a touchdown on the game...
On Friday night the Seattle Seahawks will continue their pre-season schedule and host the San Diego Chargers at CenturyLink Field. After last week’s underwhelming outing against Denver, Seattle will want to make a better showing and answer some questions looming over the roster.
Here are five things we will be watching for in the game.
1. San Diego’s uber-efficient offense
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- During training camp, the Titans have put in plenty of work on the field and in the film room.
But not like Wednesday. Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt surprised the team by taking the players to a local movie theatre before wrapping up the day with a late afternoon practice session.
"It was a break," Whisenhunt said. "They've worked hard. It was...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Ken Whisenhunt says he wanted to reward his Tennessee Titans with a surprise trip to the movies, and the first-year coach is leaning toward letting them check out of the team hotel once they return from a road trip to New Orleans.
Whisenhunt has not announced a date for the end of training camp, and he said Wednesday he considers camp stretching until the team...

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) First-year coach Ken Whisenhunt hasn't alerted anyone to the final date of Tennessee's training camp.
Fans got their last look Tuesday, and the Titans say they are fine staying on a camp schedule as long as needed.
Receiver Kendall Wright says the Titans will continue with lots of meetings and curfew at the team hotel until Whisenhunt tells them camp...

Second-year Tennessee Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter had a modestly successful, if not prolific, rookie season last year coming out of the Tennessee Volunteers program, making 18 receptions for 354 yards, a nifty 19.7-yard-per-catch average, to go along with four touchdowns. But as far as Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt is concerned, it’s time for […] The post Titans wideout...
The Tennessee Titans offense has a long way to go before it’s up to the standards of new head coach Ken Whisenhunt. On Saturday night in the team’s preseason opener against the Packers, there were a number of miscues.
That’s to be expected at this time of year to some extent, but the coaching staff singled out wide receiver Justin Hunter in particular for missing a route. As...
Tennessee Titans second-year receiver Justin Hunter appears to have all the physical tools to be a pretty good receiver. The question out of Tennessee is will he turn the corner, or end up being just another guy?
Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt got on Hunter’s case in a recent film session for a route-running error during the Titans’ 20-16 preseason win over the...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt and receivers coach Shawn Jefferson tried to send a message to receiver Justin Hunter on Monday.
Instead of his name, the receiver found ''J A G'' on the back of his practice jersey, for ''Just Another Guy.''
Hunter said after practice that he forgot to convert a route in practice. Both Whisenhunt...

Ken Whisenhunt's head coaching debut with the Titans was a wet one.
As for the game itself, well, it was forgettable despite an entertaining finish.
Let's face it: Preseason games reveal very little in the NFL. The best players don't see much action, if any. Throw in monsoon-like conditions like those at LP Field on Saturday, and it's even harder for coaches to...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jake Locker hasn't played tackle football since Nov. 10 of last year.
After just seven starts, a broken foot against the Jaguars ended his season. Since being named the starting quarterback for the Tennessee Titans, Locker has missed 14 starts over the last two seasons.
Albeit a far cry from the regular season, and his snaps limited, Locker gets that taste...

Last Thursday at Saint Thomas Sports Park, the Titans coaching staff found another way to get the players ready for the upcoming season… a huge speaker on wheels. The speaker was used in practice to simulate crowd noise, noise that they will inevitably be forced to deal with in their 8 road games this season.
After going 4-4 on the road last season, the Titans are trying to...
