Blidi Wreh-Wilson is Back in the Competition at Cornerback

Posted Jul 31, 2015

After missing a good chunk of the offseason recovering from shoulder surgery, Blidi Wreh-Wilson is back in the mix at cornerback.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Training camp didn’t exactly start off the way Titans cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson envisioned it.

He slipped and fell during a drill early, and gave up a completion the next play.

“I was a little anxious. A lot of jitters, a lot of everything,’’ Wreh-Wilson said. “Just getting all that out. The first couple of one-on-ones they attacked me, but it was good to get out there and keep playing.”

Wreh-Wilson was a full-go on Friday after missing a good chunk of the offseason while recovering from shoulder surgery. Wreh-Wilson was just cleared by doctors last week, and said he’s feeling fine.

A starter in 11 games last season, Wreh-Wilson knows he doesn’t have a lot of time to settle in.

With veteran Perrish Cox in the mix -- and coming off a solid offseason -- the competition opposite veteran Jason McCourty will be intense throughout camp.

Wreh-Wilson worked with the first group on Friday, but the Titans are expected to rotate players at the position to create competition.

“It was good to see him out there,’’ coach Ken Whisenhunt said of Wreh-Wilson. “He did things, just individual work in the spring. So it’s nice to see him get back and incorporated into the team. So that’s exciting. He’s worked hard to get there and I’m glad to see him get back out there.”

Wreh-Wilson, a third round pick out of Connecticut, isn’t exactly sure what coaches are planning.

All he can do is prepare himself, and be ready. Wreh-Wilson missed the last three games last season because of the injury.

“It is nice to have a clean slate, to be able to start over new,’’ Wreh-Wilson said. “I need as many reps as I can get, from a conditioning standpoint, from a reps standpoint. So I have to be ready.”
