Titans first-round defensive end Derrick Morgan hasn’t practiced since the first day of training camp due to a calf injury, but could play on Monday night against the Arizona Cardinals, head coach Jeff Fisher said on Saturday. John Glennon of The Tennessean reports that Morgan seemed a bit surprised to hear that he could be making his NFL debut in 48 hours.
“Yeah, it would probably be ideal (to practice before playing), just to get back in the swing of things,” Morgan said. “But it’s all up to them. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I feel great.” Morgan missed most of the Titans’ OTAs with a pulled calf muscle, and pulled another part of the same calf muscle on the opening day of camp. Morgan has undergone platelet rich plasma treatment this month to get back on the field. The Titans are thin at the defensive end position, and are counting on the 16th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft to make an impact this season.
