The NFL confirms it is "reviewing" Justin Hunter's assault case.

As it does every off-the-field issue. "That is the extent of what we can say at this point," said spokesman Greg Aiello. "I can’t speculate on outcomes." Hunter was charged with felony assault for allegedly breaking a man's jaw on July 3. The Titans will let him participate in camp in the interim.

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky expects Bishop Sankey to be the team's Week 1 starter at tailback, but to "lose carries to rookie David Cobb."

Fifth-rounder Cobb lacks Sankey's theoretical big-play ability, but is a superior runner between the tackles. Cobb, however, is going to face competition himself from fellow bruiser Antonio Andrews. The Titans used as many as four running backs throughout last season, giving Sankey, Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster, and even Leon Washington playing time in their backfield. This could be a frustrating fantasy situation again this year.

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky expects the team to open the season with Harry Douglas and Kendall Wright starting at wide receiver.

Oof. It would be quite the disappointment if second-round rookie Dorial Green-Beckham didn't win a first-team job out of camp, especially after Justin Hunter's felony assault arrest. If Douglas and Wright are indeed the first-string wideouts, the Titans would field the worst receiver corps in the league.

The prosecution says Justin Hunter "sucker-punched" his victim after the bar brawl had settled down.

Hunter allegedly started the July 3 fight by punching the man in the face twice. After the man was bent over and spitting out blood on the sidewalk, Hunter then allegedly "sucker-punched" him again before leaving. The man suffered a broken jaw and a cracked tooth. Hunter was released from jail on $25,000 bond on Tuesday and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Sept. 3. The Titans plan to let him participate in training camp as the legal process runs its course.

The Titans expect Justin Hunter to participate when training camp opens next week despite his recent arrest for felony assault.

The Titans' plan is to "let the legal process play out," and for Hunter to practice. The approach is likely in the best interests of both Hunter and the team. Although Hunter has been a disappointment on the field through two NFL seasons, he has no prior history of causing problems off of it.

Titans signed No. 2 overall pick Marcus Mariota to a four-year, $24.2 million contract with a club option for year five.

Finally. Mariota was the last first-round rookie to sign as the sides haggled over offset language. Per Terry McCormick of Titan Insider, Mariota and the team wound up compromising on "partial offsets." The Titans drew a ton of negative publicity for their delay in getting Mariota under contract, but he didn't miss any portion of the offseason because of it, and will be on time for training camp. By all accounts, Mariota was extremely impressive at OTAs and minicamp, showing pinpoint accuracy. He has the tools to turn around the Titans' franchise.

Justin Hunter is eligible to be released from jail on $25,000 bond in Virginia Beach, Va.

Hunter was arraigned on Tuesday and is expected to be released from jail this afternoon. Under terms of his release, Hunter has an 11 PM - 5 AM curfew and isn't allowed to consume alcohol. His felonious assault charge is punishable by 5-20 years in prison and a $100,000 fine. Hunter will likely plea down at some point during his legal process. A preliminary hearing is set for September 3.

Police say the alleged victim in the Justin Hunter felonious assault case sustained "serious, but not life-threatening" injuries.

Hunter was charged with stabbing, cutting, malicious intent and wounding as well as the felonious assault charge after a brawl inside the Sandbar Raw Bar. The victim was admitted to the hospital with broken bones. Hunter will be arraigned later Tuesday and will likely be placed on the Commissioner's Exempt list until the case is resolved. The Titans could also choose to simply move on from a player that flopped badly on the field last season.

The Tennessean says Titans RB Antonio Andrews will be given a "good, long look" at training camp.

Beat writers and coaches keep banging the drum for Andrews. But the reality is he was given zero carries last year even though Shonn Greene was hurt and Bishop Sankey was ineffective. We're expecting Andrews to get iced by David Cobb relatively easily in August.

Justin Hunter faces one charge of felonious assault following a July 3 incident in Virginia Beach, Va.

Hunter turned himself into authorities on Monday after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He'll be arraigned on Tuesday. The July 3 incident took place at the Sandbar Raw Bar. Hunter has been jailed in the city jail on no bond. Already on the hot seat with the Titans, this could be Hunter's final straw.
Jul 20 - 5:50 PM

Titans WR Justin Hunter was arrested in Virginia Beach on Monday.

There are very few details aside from the charges listed on the Virginia Beach Sheriff's Office website. Under the "charges" section on Hunter, it lists "malicious intent, stabbing, cutting and wounding." Hunter was arrested at 12:10 PM Monday afternoon and isn't able to be freed on bond. Stay tuned for an update.
Jul 20 - 5:20 PM

The Tennessean says Bishop Sankey is the "odds-on favorite" to start Week 1.

It's important to note that Sankey, brutally unimpressive as a rookie, is merely the favorite by default. The Titans are tied to him after making him the first running back off the board in 2014 and only having gadget player Dexter McCluster as veteran depth. We'd still expect rookie fifth-rounder David Cobb to make a big push in training camp and at least siphon off a significant chunk of work, but he'll have to earn it. Cobb missed most of the offseason with a hamstring issue.
Jul 20 - 8:49 AM

Interim Titans CEO Steve Underwood says the team won't back off its demand to include offset language in No. 2 overall pick Marcus Mariota's rookie contract.

"We've always had offset language in our player contracts," Underwood said. "I think it is important where a high first-round draft pick is concerned, because it's the precedent. Everything that we do is precedential for the next round of contracts." That may be the case, but the hapless Titans need Mariota more than he needs them. The Titans have everything to gain by getting their rookie quarterback into camp on time. Making the transition from Oregon's hyper-spread to Ken Whisenhunt's vanilla offense, Mariota can't afford any missed practice time. By digging in on offset language, the Titans are showing a lack of faith in Mariota's ability to play out his rookie deal. The Titans need to get Mariota under contract, period.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Andy Levitre will play exclusively at guard during training camp.

Levitre worked at both guard and center at OTAs. Levitre's starting job remains in question after allowing a career-high six sacks last season. The Titans can save $6.5 million by releasing him.
Jul 11 - 7:48 PM

Marcus Mariota drew raves for his accuracy in offseason workouts.

"Unbelievable accuracy," WR Harry Douglas said. "Marcus has done everything he needs to get the ball to his receivers." The Titans are expecting Mariota to improve their short passing game, where they ranked 24th in yards after the catch last year. Mariota's accuracy should be a big upgrade for slot WR Kendall Wright.
