    Don’t look for kicker Rob Bironas in Thursday’s preseason opener against the Redskins. He hasn’t practiced in a week because of back soreness.

    Neither the Titans nor Bironas sounded concerned on Tuesday, however.

    “It is part of playing football, part of kicking, part of working out, part of the whole deal. I am not the first guy to have back soreness. So it is part of the job,’’ Bironas said. “It is frustrating any time you can’t be on the field because you want to be out there. But it is sore and tight, and I’m just trying to get it worked out and doing what the trainers told me.

    “I am looking to get back in the next one and everything is in preparation for the season.”

    Bironas, who signed a two-year, $6.67 million contract this offseason, has been a spectator in recent practices while undrafted rookie Maikon Bonani has kicked. Bonani, who played in college at South Florida, has displayed a strong leg in practices, although he’s been inconsistent with his accuracy.

    Coach Mike Munchak said kicking in a preseason game should provide a great opportunity for Bonani, who’s from Brazil.

    “He has a strong leg and I expect him to do well,’’ Bironas said of Bonani. “He has done well in practice, and I think he is capable of playing in this league. I don’t want him playing here, of course. But this is a good opportunity for him.”

    Better be careful, Bironas. Best Buy has a decent return policy.

    No worries. He needs to have a better season next year though.
