Wednesday Injury Report: Walk It Off

In the wake of Monday's emotional and physical matchup with Buffalo, coach Mike Vrabel decreased the physical demands of the week's first workout.

NASHVILLE – It was not business as usual for the Tennessee Titans.

Two days after an emotional and dramatic victory over the Buffalo Bills, coach Mike Vrabel eased his players into their work week. Rather than the standard Wednesday practice, players performed a walkthrough that followed meetings, which were pushed back from their regular early morning starts.

“I just felt like I try to do what is best for the football team,” Vrabel said. “We get a lot of reps done. They get to see a lot of plays. We have a group of (scout) team on each side that helps us out so we will get to see plenty of plays.

“… I just felt like it was an emotional, physical game, a lot of guys are banged up, and this is the decision that I felt like was best for the team. Bring them in a little later, let them get some sleep, get treatment at a little later time, and then get back to a normal schedule (Thursday).”

As it was, 10 players were listed on the official NFL injury report Wednesday. Seven of them, including left tackle Taylor Lewan (concussion), wide receiver A.J. Brown (illness), wide receiver/returner Chester Rogers (groin) and kicker Randy Bullock (shoulder), did not participate.
