    SUMMARY: Last year, DT Rien Long went down with an Achilles injury. This year, it appears rookie DE Jacob Ford suffered a left Achilles injury in a one-on-one pass rush drill early in Monday's practice. "It looks like he's injured his Achilles and we're evaluating him," Coach Jeff Fisher said. The Titans are thin at DE and the only offseason move they made to address the position was drafting Ford. Last week, rookie DT Antonio Johnson was lost for the season with an ACL injury.

    We lose more players in practice than games. Maybe a better drill? Did Long play last week? I know Laboy didn't.

    Yea we could replace the one on one line drills with the guys playing Madden instead.

    Long did play a few snaps and he has been participating from day one in camp. They are just being cautious IMO.

    Darn it. I like the look of Ford. He looks like a player who never quits on a play.

    We have the worst injury luck. Lose both of our rookie DL picks for the season!?!

    Is it just bad luck, or is it something else?

    just another reason why we should have used our 3rd rounder on a DE instead of another WR...

    It doesnt happen as much to other teams. It's crap conditioning and we've had it for far too long. When the season starts we'll see guys going down every other play. I never see it with other teams, but we literally have a guy limping around every 2-3 plays.
