Titans' Washington Hurts Hamstring
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Nate Washington suffered a hamstring injury during Monday's practice.
Washington was signed as a free agent in the offseason from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Coach Jeff Fisher called Washington's injury mild but added that there's concern any time a wide receiver hurts a hamstring muscle. Washington was scheduled to undergo an MRI exam late Monday.
The Tennessean reported that Washington is expected to miss the final two preseason games and his status for the NFL's season-opening game at Pittsburgh is unclear. For now, according to the newspaper, rookie Kenny Britt is expected to become the starter at the receiver spot opposite Justin Gage.
The injury came on the same day the Titans released wideout Chris Davis. There has been speculation, dismissed by Fisher, about the Titans being interested in free agent receiver Marvin Harrison, who remains available after being released by the Indianapolis Colts in the offseason.
