Injuries Mar Titans Thursday Practice

The Titan had avoided injuries to key players, that is, until today.

Injuries emerged as the potential top story from Titans training camp on Thursday as three players were hurt during the session.

Right tackle Byron Bell went down during eleven on eleven work early in the practice. He stayed seated on the field for several seconds before making it to his feet and walking off under his own power, he was taken to the locker room to be examined.

According to head coach Ken Whisenhunt, Bell was struck in the jaw on the play, but was seen in the locker room following practice and appeared to be suffering no ill effects.Tight end Delanie Walker collided with safety Da’Norris Searcy on a pass from Marcus Mariota in the eleven on eleven period. Walker received a cut on his left thumb from the collision that required stitches.

”No I’m not concerned about it, just so I can take a shower, but I got a cut on my hand,” said Walker. “The trainers wanted to be smart with it so I just went inside and made sure that everything was ok with it.”

”I got stitches but it’s just a small cut,” said Walker. “We’ll evaluated it. Right now I’m going to see the trainer and make sure everything is ok. The Hand doctor is here and he’s going to take a look at it and we will see from there.”

Rookie undrafted free agent fullback Connor Neighbors was seen in the locker room following practice with a soft cast on his right arm and being supported by a sling. It was unclear when he sustained the injury.

The Titans will take to the practice field again on Friday morning with a 9:10 a.m. practice at St. Thomas Sports Park.
