    MINNEAPOLIS Running back Jackie Battle knows the drill by now. In the fourth preseason game, the starters rest and the backups get a chance to show what they can do.

    Battle took full advantage of his opportunity against the Vikings. The bruising runner started the game and carried 10 times for 38 yards, a nice showing for a player still trying to make the roster.

    Running backs Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene didn’t play.

    “This whole preseason, it seems like every time I’m in there they are handing it off to me,” Battle said. “I went out there, ran hard and gave it everything I’ve got. I think I’ve done enough to stick around here hopefully.”

    The sixth-year pro signed with the Titans at the start of training camp.

    “He runs hard and he’s had a really good camp,” coach Mike Munchak said. “He is a good fit for us, and what we are trying to do.”

    Battle has locked down a spot on the 53 man IMO

    Cutting Battle would be an atrocious move. We better keep him. It was pathetic watching Parmele fail to get yards and 1st downs I'm positive Battle would have.

    I can't tell you how much better I feel about our backup RBs this year compared to last year. Greene and Battle are so much better than Harper and Ringer.

    I hated Ringer and Harper had the size and talent but was running scared all the time. What kind of back that big is afraid to make contract? I will miss Eddie ripping on him from the commentators booth.

    Battle has shown he belongs, but dont let these performances fool you into thinking thats what you'll get in the regular season.

    Im gonna keep doubting his abilities, so far he's played well when I disrespect him.

    Cutting Battle would be even worse than trying to get Blount on the practice squad and only carrying two RBs a few years ago
