Titans-Falcons Joint Practice: Quick Hits

Posted Aug 4, 2014

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The much-anticipated joint practice with the Atlanta Falcons is in the books. Here are the notable highlights from Monday:

• A big question going into the day was if left guard Andy Levitre would participate and how much. Levitre did play – three snaps per team period as well as some 1-on-1 work. He said he felt very good afterwards.

• In the special teams period rookie linebacker Avery Williamson forced a fumble defending a punt that was recovered by tight end Jason Schepler.

• During Tennessee’s defensive 1-on-1 drills, cornerback Jason McCourty had a nice breakup on a pass intended for Roddy White.

Justin Hunter stole the show during offensive 1-on-1 drills, burning Atlanta’s secondary for two long completions (One from Whitehurst and one from Mettenberger). He continued to impress throughout practice with several other catches all over the field.

Derek Hagan continued to show flashes, catching a deep ball from Charlie Whitehurst in the 1-on-1 period.

• Flags were somewhat of a theme of the day as players adjusted to how referees are enforcing new contact rules. 

• Coach Ken Whisenhunt said he was pleased with the overall performance of Jake Locker, who completed passes to nearly every receiver over the course of practice. He also discussed how it was nice to see all of his playmakers flashing at some point during Monday’s practice.

• One of the passing highlights came on a deep ball from Locker to Kendall Wright down the left seam for a would-be touchdown.

• Veteran receiver Brian Robiskie made the catch of the day during the 7-on-7 portion with a beautiful diving grab deep down the middle on a long pass from Whitehurst.

• Rookie linebacker Avery Williamson showed off his speed during 7-on-7, chasing down a running in coverage and breaking up a deep pass near the right sideline.

• Kicking Update – Both Maikon Bonani and Travis Coons had five field goal attempts – all from the same spots (33, 36, 39, 42, 46). Bonani went 4-of-5 (missing wide right from 46) and Coons went 5-of-5.

• The Titans will get Tuesday off before three-straight practices gearing up Saturday’s preseason game against Green Bay.
