CB Derrick Morgan Might Play Vs Cardinals

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.

    Of course, the OilerTitans would put a guy back on the field before he was ready to play, and get him hurt worse. And in an exhibition game on top of all that!

    Watch the poor guy get hurt and spend the whole season on IR, which would give the Oilers…or Titans if you prefer, an excuse for why they suck again.

    You can take the Oilers out of Houston, but you will NEVER take the Oilers out of the Titans!

      Dude for one its the Tennessee Titans not the Houston Oilers anymore get the fuck over it, two how can a team suck “again” if they went 8-2 the last ten games to make history and 13-3 the season before that and have a 2000 yard rusher? But “apparently” they suck so none of that means anything right?

    They will always be the Houston Oilers, no matter what you call them now. They will be the Oilers forever.

    The Oilers had great regular seasons and then choked in the playoffs. So do the “Titans”.

    The Oilers used to get off to terrible starts, then get hot, tease their fans about making the playoffs anyway, and then blow it. You saw the “Titans” do that last year.

    Or, the Oilers would get hot to start the season, and then fall apart. Like the “Titans” did in 2008.

    The Oilers would waste their talent by playing the wrong players. Like the “Titans” did for two years of playing the wrong quarterback.

    The Oilers sucked because they always teased their fans and then disappointed them. Even when they had a great regular season, they still sucked when it mattered.

    So do the “Titans”.

    You can take the Oilers out of Houston, but you will never take the Oilers out of the Titans.
