At a time when players from a few teams have said that they plan to get together and practice during a possible lockout, the Titans currently don’t anticipate any such sessions, according to Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com.
“I haven’t heard from any of my teammates regarding any workouts yet,” defensive tackle Jason Jones told McCormick.
Even if the Titans wanted to engage in their own practices without the supervision of the coaching staff, the fact that the organization hired a new head coach and new coordinators relatively late in the annual turnover process makes it difficult for any of the players to know what they should do. As McCormick points out, the Titans have yet to meet with new coach Mike Munchak or new coordinators Chris Palmer and Jerry Gray.
A team meeting planned for last Wednesday, during which players presumably would have been given some guidance for lockout workouts, was scrapped.
The problem with any workouts or practices done away from team facilities is that any mishap constitutes a non-football injury. If something serious happens, like a torn ACL, the team could chose to not pay the player until he’s 100 percent.
