    Per Rotoworld

    Second-round WR Justin Hunter (hamstring) isn't participating in Titans minicamp.
    It means barring an unexpected return on Wednesday or Thursday, the No. 34 overall pick will go into training camp having missed all of OTAs. His toughness has already been questioned by WRs coach Shawn Jefferson, so it's safe to assume coach Mike Munchak isn't thrilled, either. Perhaps it's why Munchak has insisted Nate Washington remains in the Titans' plans after it was previously believed he was good as gone.

    Titans LG Andy Levitre (knee soreness) will be limited to individual drills in minicamp.
    As will RT David Stewart (broken leg). The Titans' meal ticket road paver hasn't gotten in any team reps since signing his six-year, $46.8 million deal, and is questionable for the beginning of training camp. The Titans' entire offseason "plan" will go up in smoke if Levitre isn't ready for Week 1, but there's been nothing to suggest that will be the case.
    OC Dowell Loggains believes the Titans have their best tight end corps since "Alge (Crumpler) and Bo Scaife."
    Kevin Walter (back) will be sidelined until training camp.
    Walter has barely practiced since signing in April, and is starting to hurt his roster chances. At this point, Walter might need Tennessee to renege on its promise of keeping Nate Washington to have a real shot at making the 53-man roster.

    exactly how serious is Hunter's injury? Is sitting him out something they are doing as a precaution or necessity?

    I was not very happy with this pick, but was hoping he could turn into a stud. I'm starting to think we have once again drafted another turd WR. :wall:

    So... no one we signed in the offseason is going to be able to play.

    Knew there was something wrong. Was too good to be true.

    Does this mean we don't have to hold our breath everytime a TE catches a pass?

    As bad as it may sound, Dowell is telling the truth.
