A lot of news coming out of "Music City" today.
Titans quarterback Jake Locker seems to be relatively OK, and the same goes for wide receiver Nate Washington, two players who were injured on the same play Sunday. Washington was hit by two Patriots on an incomplete pass during the fourth quarter and didn't return to the game. He was diagnosed with a leg contusion and according to the Titans' official Twitter account, head coach Mike Munchak said Washington "should be ready to play" in six days against the Chargers.
This one has me scratching my head. Washington got crushed by those two defenders and definitely looked to be unconscious for at least a few seconds. Yet, the Titans have said nothing about a concussion with Washington. You should expect Nate to miss some practice time, but he should be a decent WR3 next week. He caught a touchdown and had eight targets in a little more than three quarters yesterday. However, Washington's value could take a hit depending on how much playing time Kenny Britt gets in Week 2, and the rumor is Britt will see 20-25 snaps. That will be a story throughout this week.
