Finnegan Says He's Re-Energized On The Field

The Titans defense entered the 2nd half of the season wanting to get back to discipline football.

Can Damian Williams Live Up To Expectations?

It's cliche...but so true. You really are one play away from a chance. For Damian Williams, that opportunity came with the knee injury to Kenny Britt. As Jonathan Hutton reports, the former 3rd-round pick isn't trying to think about living up to big expectations.

Kenny Britt Nearing Something Special

Consider Kenny Britt's start to the 2011 season. Britt earned back-to-back 100-yard performances and flashed on film like never before. If Britt can stay a consistent playmaker, he's on the edge of something special. Jonathan Hutton goes 1-on-1 with Kenny Britt.

Dave Ball Fitting In...Again

Dave Ball's not the glamorous one. The sack numbers don't attract the national attention. This is a guy the NFL basically left behind. Out of football in 2007, reclamated by former defensive line coach Jim Washburn -- and succeeding even after Washburn's departure.

Jamie Harper's Role In The Backfield

Rusty Smith's Battle For Spot On Titans Roster

The Titans hand-picked Rusty Smith in the 2010 NFL Draft and he entered last year's training camp as a coach's favorite. A guy they thought could develop into a true pro prospect. But a project -- not someone to start a regular season game in Houston as a rookie. Jonathan Hutton reports.

McRath Not Satisfied With Simply Surviving

Some would say linebacker Gerald McRath had one of the best training camps of any Titan in 2011. Would the Southern Miss product agree with that assessment? Mike Keith finds out.

Rennie Curran Battles The Size Issue

At 5-11, 230, linebacker Rennie Curran entered Titans camp last year smaller than the typical linebacker, but it fit what the defensive system required. Now that's out -- and big is in. Does that leave Rennie Curran out? The Georgia Bulldog doesn't think so.

Jason McCourty's Whole New Season

Alterraun Verner impressed everyone in training camp last year as a rookie -- to the point that you might forget about Jason McCourty.

Jared Cook Remembering Kenny McKinley

Jason Jones Making Up For Lost Time
