SUMMARY: Following a season-ending injury to DT Rien Long on Saturday, the Titans will need rookie Jesse Mahelona to step up in the rotation. "When someone goes down, you have to pick up the slack," said Mahelona. "Rien is a good player, and I am young and we have other young guys, too. But we just have step up and take control out there and follow the guys that are leading us now. ... I just want to show a lot of people what I can do. I did pretty well at Tennessee, and I want to go to the NFL and be even that much better. But right now it just takes time." At six foot, 311 pounds, Mahelona plays with good leverage. "Some of the shorter guys up front have a tendency to get the pads high and look around," said Fisher. "He has a sense for where the ball is because he can feel. He's very instinctive."
