Pro Football Weekly says that Titans WR Nate Washington’s chances of playing opening night vs the Steelers is very much up in the air:
In some respects, the right hamstring injury suffered by Titans WR Nate Washington in advance of the club’s next-to-last preseason game didn’t come at a terrible time, as he had 17 days to recover before the club’s regular-season opener at Pittsburgh. However, the way we hear it, his availability for Week One is very much up in the air.
“It’s not a serious hamstring (injury), but he does have an injury to the hamstring muscle,” Titans head coach Jeff Fisher told reporters. “We’ll be day-to-day, week-to-week here. He’s a quick healer and we’ll get aggressive with his treatment.” Washington has gotten off to a fast start with the Titans, and if he were to miss any time during the regular season, it would be a major loss to an offense depending upon him to be the primary vertical threat. The good news for Tennessee: All-Pro C Kevin Mawae (elbow) is back practicing and is expected to be ready for the Pittsburgh game.
