Thursday Injury Report: Bullock Shrugs off Shoulder Issue

The Tennessee Titans kicker practiced and served notice that he intends to play after he was hurt in Monday's victory over Buffalo.

NASHVILLE – it looks as if the Tennessee Titans won’t have to look for another kicker this week.

Randy Bullock, who has had the job since Week 2, was a full participant in Thursday’s practice despite a shoulder injury sustained during Monday’s victory over the Buffalo Bills. Bullock, who is 5-foot-9, 210 pounds, was hurt when a Buffalo player blocked him during Isaiah McKenzie’s 101-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter (the play was negated by a penalty).

“Randy just gave me the thumbs-up and said, ‘I’m kicking’ [after that play],” special teams coach Craig Aukerman said prior to the practice. “When you get a guy like that who it doesn’t matter what happens to him, ‘I’m going to kick,’ it makes us feel good.

“But it all affects [a kicker]. … It’s all hips, body, shoulder rotation, things like that. We’ll end up seeing what Randy can do. He feels well right now.”

Bullock was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday, when the team conducted a walk-through instead of a standard practice.
