    In some ways, Colin McCarthy feels like he’s starting from scratch.

    So the final preseason game, at Minnesota on Thursday, is huge for the Titans linebacker. He missed the first three games because of a hamstring injury.

    “I am hoping to play a lot. This is an opportunity to audition for all 32 teams,” McCarthy said. “I haven’t played since Jacksonville (Nov. 26, 2012) so I have to prove to all 32 teams that I am back and ready to play.’’

    McCarthy, a fourth-round pick in 2011, is in no danger of being released even though he lost his starting job for the regular season opener to Moise Fokou.

    Still, he feels he has something to prove after missing nine games last season with an ankle injury and a concussion.

    McCarthy returned to practice from the hamstring injury last week.

    “I want respect throughout the league, and since I’ve been hurt I have to go back and prove myself to myself and the other 31 teams out there,” he said. “I am excited about the opportunity. I feel great, like I haven’t missed a beat. I feel fresh and light on my feet, which is nice, and am ready to go out there and play.”

    Sounds like he's playing with a bruised vagina. Jesus- something to "prove to 32 teams"? Really? Sounds as if he's posturing about losing his starting spot.

    Keep that chit up and I'm gonna have to break down the jersey.

    He does have something to prove. Can he get through one damn play without spraining his left buttcheek.

    If he stays healthy he'll win his job back in no time... Fokou will be a decent #2 though.

    What's all this 31 other teams stuff?

    They're not paying you, dipsh*t.

    How about you prove yourself to 52 teammates and your current team?
