|Bironas Targeting Opener for Return
Aug 26, 2008
Rob Bironas has not been seen kicking in Titans practice for a month and may not be available for Thursday's preseason finale in Green Bay. The goal is to have him return for the regulars season opener and no one appears concerned that Bironas won't be ready to pick up where he left off. "I don't want to go up to Green Bay and have the risk of having a
setback or pushing an injury just to get on the field to hit a couple
balls where if I have that extra week and a half of rest that'll put me
that much further ahead," Bironas said. "That's what I'm wanting to do,
and I'm sure that's what the coaches want to do." Bironas suffered a groin injury the first week of training camp after an All-Pro season in '07 with a league-leading 35 FGs and setting the NFL record with eight in one game against the Texans.
