    Two of the Titans’ top free-agent signees – guard Andy Levitre and tight end Delanie Walker – were sidelined with knee issues during OTA on Friday.

    Levitre is still recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee following the 2012 season. He had arthroscopic knee surgery on his left knee during the 2011 season.

    He has been doing some running during OTAs and hopes to get on the field – at least for the individual drills – prior to the June 18-20 minicamp.

    “(The recovery) is going a little bit slower than I thought, but I don’t think it’s anything I have to worry about,” Levitre said. “It kind of stinks not being able to get out there and actually do the new playbook, but I’ll definitely be good for training camp.”

    Walker said he tweaked his knee during Thursday’s indoor practice session and sat out Friday as a precaution. He said he doesn’t believe the injury is serious, but that if it’s still bothering him on Monday, he’ll likely get an MRI.

    “It just felt a little wobbly at practice yesterday, so we’re taking it lightly right now,” Walker said. “There’s no rush. My last couple OTA practices were very good.”

    Coach Mike Munchak said he expects both players to see at least some action on the field next week.

    “This is the offseason, voluntary time, so we’re going to be smart with guys going through this process,” Munchak said. “Especially in the first week being on field and going against another, guys will be sore.”

    Other Titans who missed Friday’s session: kicker Rob Bironas (excused), defensive end Kamerion Wimbley (excused), fullback Quinn Johnson (excused), wide receiver Justin Hunter (hamstring) wide receiver Roberto Wallace (ankle), safety Robert Johnson (foot), center Eugene Amano (knee), guard Chris Spencer (leg), tackle Michael Roos (back), tackle David Stewart (leg), wide receiver Kevin Walter (soreness) and defensive tackle Mike Martin (back).

    Munchak didn’t classify any of the injuries as serious.

    Only 11 missed due to injury or soreness. Not too bad----if it was week 15.

    I can't wait for the day where I don't have to see Eugene Amano's name associated with anything Titans related except for the transactions page under released!

    Each year once the practices start and the players are out moving around i think we all hold our breath hoping that the players on our team make it through without any mishaps.A good example would be Michael Crabtree who unfortunately suffered a torn achilles tendon and is a major part of the 49ers offense.
