Titans-Texans Week: Thursday Report

Titans-Texans Week: Thursday Report

Head Coach Jeff Fisher talks about the injury status of the Titans and the upcoming game agi

Why did the Titans practice at a later time than usual today?

Fisher: "I did it last year one time. What we want to try to do is just rest up from the last couple weeks and all the traveling. Getting a good night's sleep, having an opportunity to sleep in brings it back. It was evident – we saw a lot of spring in their step today at practice. "

What time did the team begin their day today?

Fisher: "We had lunch at 12:30 and we started meetings at 1:00. "

Why did Albert Haynesworth sit out of practice?

Fisher: "He was fine. I would expect him to practice tomorrow. "

What is Benji Olson's injury status?

Fisher: "Benji was out here. He's working his way back into things. "

What is the injury status of Chris Hope?

Fisher: "We're just day-to-day on Chris. "

What is Tony Brown's injury status?

Fisher: "He's coming around. He's probably going to practice tomorrow. "

Are you easing Olson back into practice?

Fisher: "We're working him back. We're not pushing him too quickly. His exercises are working. He's feeling much better. We're not going to rush him back. "

Will Haynesworth be able to play as many reps on Sunday as he ordinarily would?

Fisher: "It would be unlikely. If he comes back and if he can play, he's going to play a good portion of the ballgame. "

What's the importance of pressuring Texans Matt Schaub on Sunday, as they did in the previous game?

Fisher: "It's important, but it's unlikely that will be repeated. I will assume that they have a different plan, as far as protecting him. "

How is the learning process of Mike Williams?

Fisher: "He's picking [the offense] up. There is some familiarity to it from his college days. There have been a couple differences. But he's a bright guy and he's picking it up nicely."
