    SUMMARY: Second-round draft pick LenDale White returns to his hometown Saturday night when the Titans play the Broncos. White has put the fight which resulted in him being suspended last week behind him and Coach Jeff Fisher feels he is refocused. "It is a matter of putting it in perspective, putting it behind him and moving on," Fisher said. "And the best way to do that is to do things right on the field, be productive, and be that back we drafted him to be. And, of course, continue to work inside the building. I believe it is behind him. I believe he is refocused." The 6-foot-1, 230-pound White is blessed with quick feet and good hands. He's shown the ability to separate from defenders quickly. "He kind of reminds me of Corey Dillon, a young Corey Dillon, with the attitude and the flair and the power he possesses," LB Keith Bulluck said. "He's not afraid to lower his shoulder. He's not scared to look up a linebacker, a safety, a cornerback, whoever it is. He is young now, and once he understands what it takes to be the best in this league, what he wants to be, I think he'll be great."

    It'll be interesting to see where he's at with all the time he's missed in camp. I don't really expect much I must admit. However against 2nd/3rd stringers he could tear it up if he's just somewhat in shape.

    I think he'll have a great showing, but a comparison to Corey Dillion remains to be seen.

    I thought that was a reach as well.

    White has the attitude and possibly the talent but I don't know if he has the desire to improve himself we've seen in Dillion. Time will tell.

    Why does the article say he will start? Is he our starting RB for Saturday? That seems unlikely.
