    SUMMARY: Second-year RB Damien Nash was not allowed to practice as training camp opened due to being overweight and out of shape. "I am going to hold him out of practice until I feel like he's gotten to the point where he's ready to be allowed to practice," Coach Jeff Fisher said. Fisher said Nash was "not even close" to his reporting weight. DT Albert Haynesworth reported to camp between 17 to 22 pounds from last season, when he played at 340 or 345. "I just came in at what I felt good at," Haynesworth said. "I played heavy last year. I liked it a little bit but it was a little harder on my knees so I'll try something different this year, weigh less and see how I perform."

    Interesting:
    "Free-agent rookie cornerback Keon Raymond" an interception machine... There's a real chance for cornerbacks to make the team this year.

    Sandy released. We're looking for another young safety... I don't know about the prior Tampa safter Jahmile Addae, but I like the move to upgrade.

    Holy crap that's heavy. I wonder if it'll be easier on his dodgy elbow as well as his knees? Either way his conditioning must be miles better than last year.

    Is this new Haynesworth influenced by KVB's example I wonder?

    Nash is sure screwing up his chance of making the team. So out of shape they won't even let him practice!! Didn't someone notice this during the earlier workouts and tell him to straighten up

    Nash could have had a great camp and still not made the team. At least he could have gotten picked up elsewhere. That appears unlikely now.

    It looks like a waste of a fourth-round pick right now.

    Yeah, that's what's confusing. Even if he can't make the team here he'd want to show something to encourage another team to pick him up.
