Titans' Sankey: I don't plan on fumbling being an issue for me

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...

Kendall Wright: Another Beneficiary Of Whisenhunt’s Arrival

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.
