Titans | LeGarrette Blount ticketed for practice squad

Thu, 02 Sep 2010 08:59:33 -0700

Tennessee Titans RP LeGarrette Blount is a strong runner, but his knowledge of the playbook remains limited and he's still considered a liability in pass protection, according to The Nashville Tennessean's Jim Wyatt. That combination figures to make him a candidate for the eight-man practice squad over the roster. RP Samkon Gado has a good feel for the offense and is much more valuable on special teams. However, he does not catch the ball and might not have the upside of Blount. RP Alvin Pearman, who is also in competition for the last running back spot, does not have a single carry in the preseason. He has experience in the return game, but the team has other options for that role.
