Veteran Safety Practices For 1st Time Since Injury
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee veteran safety Chris Hope has returned to practice for the first time since breaking his left forearm Oct. 2.
Returning to the starting spot he's held since being signed as a free agent in 2006 may take a little longer.
Coach Mike Munchak said Wednesday that they must see how Hope responds to practice over the next couple days. That will determine how much Hope is able to play Sunday when the Titans (4-4) visit Carolina (2-6), and Munchak says he expects the veteran to rotate with Jordan Babineaux.
Hope went straight from practice to treatment to a meeting and was not available to talk in the locker room. The 10-year veteran has started 77 straight games for Tennessee.
