The Titans want Shonn Greene to lose 5-10 pounds.

Greene — never anyone's definition of "light" — must have gotten extra bulky as he recovered from his May knee scope. The Nashville Tennessean speculated in May that Greene's roster spot might not be secure. The fact that his coaches are publicly calling out his weight could support that. Greene averaged an anemic 3.83 YPC last season. All that being said, all Greene really needs to do to stick around is show better than Jackie Battle in camp. It's not a tall task.

CB Coty Sensabaugh began Titans camp as the starting outside corner.

Sensabaugh is competing with second-year CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson to fill the hole in the Titans' secondary left by the departure of Alterraun Verner. The pair will likely trade off days with the first-team defense, meaning Wreh-Wilson should start tomorrow. Wreh-Wilson is the favorite to win the job.

Rookie OT Taylor Lewan saw some time at left guard during Titans practice.

With Andy Levitre recovering from an appendectomy, the Titans mixed and matched at left guard all practice. The Titans getting Lewan work at guard could be an indication they see him as a reserve option this season. Michael Roos and Michael Oher are currently penciled in as the Tennessee's starting tackles.

Titans LB Zach Brown opened camp as the starting inside 'backer next to Wesley Woodyard.

After being benched down the stretch last season, a new coaching staff and a new defense have given Brown a fresh start. He is a great fit at inside linebacker in new DC Ray Horton's defense, with the speed and athleticism to play sideline to sideline.

Shonn Greene has been cleared for training camp following his May knee scope.

Greene has twice undergone arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in less than a year, but he recovered quickly and is poised to vie for carries with rookie Bishop Sankey. As is, the Titans appear to be tentatively planning on a three-man backfield with Greene as the short-yardage and early-down pounder, Sankey as the all-purpose lead back, and Dexter McCluster in the passing-back role.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Friday the Titans are still in the process of determining rookie Bishop Sankey's role.

Whiz called Sankey a player "we've got to find out about" in terms of his ability to contribute and workload. Sankey's college track record suggests he can indeed handle lots of carries and be a contributor in the pass game, although that doesn't always result in high-volume NFL success. May pro evaluators viewed Sankey as a change-of-pace type coming out of Washington. In Tennessee, he'll try to separate himself from Dexter McCluster and banged-up Shonn Greene.

Titans LG Andy Levitre underwent an appendectomy on Thursday, and will be sidelined two weeks.

In a vacuum, it's a minor issue, but it sets Levitre further behind after he missed the Titans' entire offseason program as he recovered from hip surgery. He'll be up against it to get in shape for Week 1. That being said, Levitre has yet to miss a game since being the No. 51 overall pick of the 2009 draft. He should be ready for the opener.

Titans GM Ruston Webster "expects to get an extension worked out" with walk-year DT Jurrell Casey.

The sides have remained in constant communication, but have yet to make a breakthrough. Heading into the final year of his rookie contract after racking up 10.5 sacks last season, Casey has little incentive to settle for a discount.
Jul 24 - 2:12 PM

Titans agreed to terms with No. 11 overall pick OT Taylor Lewan on a four-year contract.

Lewan was the lone remaining unsigned rookie. As is the case with all first-round picks, the deal includes a fifth-year team option for 2018. Lewan will get run at both tackle spots in camp, but is currently behind Michael Roos at left tackle and Michael Oher at right. We'd assume he has his sights set on Oher. Roos is fully expected to remain on the blindside this season.

Maikon Bonani is the favorite to win the Titans kicking job.

In an effort to replace Rob Bironas, the Titans are pitting Bonani against UDFA Travis Coons. The winner of the gig will not hit the fantasy radar as an unproven kicker in a shaky offense.

Titans rookie QB Zach Mettenberger was reportedly "sucker punched" at a Nashville bar over the weekend.

According to the bar's owner, Mettenberger responded to a fellow bar patron yelling "Roll Tide," by saying "Good luck with that," then got hit. "I promise you that Mettenberger did not throw a punch," stated Steve Ford, owner of Loser's Most Wanted Bar & Grill. "He didn't do anything. The guy sucker-punched him in the eye, that's the bottom line, and the guy that punched him started running out the door. My door guys had to chase him down." Mettenberger is fine, but he probably needs to avoid situations like this going forward.

Jurrell Casey remains in contract extension negotiations with the Titans.

The two sides have been talking for a couple months now, but there's been no breakthrough yet. The Titans may want Casey to "prove it" again after breaking out for 10.5 sacks and a top-four grade among defensive tackles from PFF. He's owed $1.431 million this season, the final year of his rookie deal.

The Nashville Tennessean projects 88 receptions, 1,360 yards and eight touchdowns for Kendall Wright this season.

The projection is extremely optimistic, but it's notable as it comes from top beat man Jim Wyatt. It will depend on Jake Locker both staying healthy for the first time as an NFL starter, and also taking a giant leap forward in his fourth NFL season. If both those variables hold, Wright certainly has the separation ability and explosiveness to make a statistical leap while playing the Keenan Allen role in Ken Whisenhunt's offense. We're just not ready to bet that heavily on Locker.
Jul 21 - 11:33 AM

According to the Nashville Tennessean, the Titans "plan on using a running back by committee approach" this season.

Beat writer Jim Wyatt's "thinking" is Bishop Sankey will lead the team in "carries and production," but Dexter McCluster will be ex-Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt's new Danny Woodhead, and the Titans "want (Shonn) Greene to be their power back in goal-line and short-yardage situations." Wyatt also noted McCluster was an "offseason star" during OTAs. Most NFL executives viewed Sankey as a rotational back as opposed to a feature runner prior to May's draft. The Titans made him the first running back selected, but he's hardly a lock to handle bellcow work. Sankey's current Average Draft Position is the early fourth round, ahead of Ryan Mathews, Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen, and Frank Gore.
Jul 20 - 12:26 PM

The Nashville Tennessean named LT Michael Roos the "offseason star" among the Titans' offensive line.

Top beat writer Jim Wyatt fully expects Roos to be protecting Jake Locker's blind side come Week 1, with the real competition taking place on the right side of the line between Michael Oher and Taylor Lewan. If Oher plays like he did in Baltimore, Lewan should have no trouble beating him out talent-wise. However, GM Ruston Webster laughably gave Oher $9.5 million guaranteed in March. Oher is penciled in as the starter, but keep the eraser within reach.
