    Titans defensive end Dave Ball won’t make the trip to Seattle for the team’s preseason game on Saturday.

    Ball hasn’t practice since being hit in the nose during practice last Thursday, and he continues to suffer from concussion-like symptoms.

    “I have some symptoms that are still persistent,’’ he said.

    Ball said he has a fracture his nose after the hit last week.

    Ball, in his eighth NFL season, has a history of concussions. Last year, he said he considered retiring following a concussion during the season. But Ball said he’d like to play this season.

    “For sure,’’ he said with a smile. “I want to play it through. I want to play all 18 holes, and right now I am on the No.3 sand trap, you know what I am saying? I have to at least get back to the clubhouse for a hoagie.”

    Ball hopes to return to practice next week, but it depends on how quickly he clears up.
