Titans NT Sammie Lee Hill is only dealing with a knee sprain.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Hill won't require surgery. Hill could be shut down for the remainder of OTAs, but isn't in danger of missing training camp.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt believes Bishop Sankey adding weight will help him in pass protection and as a finisher of runs.

The Titans want Sankey at 215-220 pounds this year, after he played at 209 as a rookie and averaged 3.74 yards per carry. "I just feel like as far as having some thump in the A-gap when he has protection or being able to get extra yards on a carry, I think that can help him," Whisenhunt explained. In our experience, weight gains at running back rarely improve performance.

Dorial Green-Beckham wants to play at 225 pounds this season.

He wants to shed 12 pounds off his current 237-pound frame. By getting leaner, Green-Beckham is hoping to improve his speed on the outside. The 22-year-old already ran a solid 4.49 40 at the Combine this winter. Green-Beckham, Hakeem Nicks, Justin Hunter, and Harry Douglas will vie for snaps behind Kendall Wright in the first year of Tennessee's Marcus Mariota experiment.

The Titans want Bishop Sankey to put on additional weight.

Sankey tipped the scales at 209 at the Combine last year. The Titans want him to bulk up to 215-220 to be able to handle the rigors of the NFL. They also want Sankey to better understand the offense. We don't like weight gain with running backs, as it often makes them slower. Coming off a down rookie season and with the addition of David Cobb, it's difficult to have a rosy outlook for Sankey.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said second-year DL DaQuan Jones is a starter for the Titans.

Jones was the 112th pick in last year's draft and played 143 snaps, starting the Week 17 finale. He played some end and nose tackle in DC Ray Horton's 3-4 scheme. Jones currently projects to the end spot opposite Pro Bowl DE Jurrell Casey, though nose tackle could also be up for grabs on a weak line.

Dorial Green-Beckham has been dealing with a hamstring injury.

Green-Beckham strained his hamstring in rookie minicamp, and aggravated the injury on Tuesday. It's obviously not a major concern, but a reminder that DGB hasn't played live football in well over a year. Green-Beckham has considerable upside, but is also considerably raw.

Titans NT Sammie Lee Hill will undergo an MRI after tweaking his knee in OTAs.

Hill made 15 starts last season, but was largely ineffective. He turns 29 in November. The seriousness of Hill's injury will be determined by the MRI.

Speaking Tuesday, Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team would "love" for Shonn Greene to be present at OTAs.

Greene is taking care of his infant child, which Whiz admitted was a "pretty important reason" to be absent from the "voluntary" sessions. Nevertheless, Greene's absence can't be doing himself any favors as he clings for dear life to his roster spot. We expect Greene to eventually be cut loose.

Titans OLB Jonathan Massaquoi is recovering from shoulder surgery.

Massaquoi had a minor clean-up procedure in the offseason. He should miss the majority of OTAs, but is expected to be full-go for the start of training camp. Claimed off waivers in March, Massaquoi will compete for a reserve pass-rusher role behind Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan.

The Titans want rookie RB David Cobb to lose some weight after he reported to rookie camp at 232.

The coaches haven't told Cobb a specific number, but he wants to play around 225. He tipped the scales at 229 at the Combine. Shedding 8-10 pounds won't be a problem when training camp rolls around in the dead heat of summer. Cobb is currently being drafted in the 12th round of MFL best-ball leagues.

Sources tell PFT's Mike Florio the Titans will begin contract negotiations with Marcus Mariota on Monday.

Of the first seven picks in this year's draft, Mariota is the only one who hasn't signed a contract. It's unclear how Mariota and his agent will approach the issue of offset language. Without offset language, Mariota could get paid twice if the Titans released him and let him sign with another team before his four years are up. Jacksonville's deals with Dante Fowler and Blake Bortles did not include offset language, though most contracts do.

The Titans are impressed with rookie FB Jalston Fowler's ability to catch passes.

Seven of his 19 catches at Alabama went for touchdowns. "It was just a goal-line thing," said Fowler. "We ran a couple of plays on the goal line, with me just bluffing, going into the flat and scoring touchdowns." A sharp blocker with good size, Fowler paved the way for T.J. Yeldon's 979 rushing yards last season. The Titans are hoping Fowler will add speed to his already impressive skill set by losing 5-10 pounds this offseason.
May 17 - 10:04 AM

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Marcus Mariota will receive the "majority" of first-team quarterback reps this offseason.

Although some are pushing Mariota-versus-Zach Mettenberger as a training camp battle, it isn't. The Titans fully intend to start Mariota in Week 1, and only a complete face plant in preseason games might make it even a question.
May 15 - 3:19 PM

Titans signed No. 108 overall pick FB Jalston Fowler to a four-year contract.

Fowler was probably over-drafted in the fourth round, but can do a little bit of everything. He averaged 6.59 yards per carry at Alabama, and displayed soft hands. He's not a road grader as a lead blocker, but should be an upgrade on Jackie Battle.
May 14 - 2:40 PM

Titans signed No. 138 overall pick RB David Cobb to a four-year contract.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt has said the Titans view Cobb as a potential three-down back, but he has Shonn Greene-esque wheels at 4.73. He's an able pass protector who can snag the occasional reception, but speedy he is not. Despite that fact, Cobb's versatility and power between the tackles could easily earn him rookie-year work. The Titans clearly aren't happy with Bishop Sankey.
