Titans WR Nate Washington May Have to Sit vs Steelers Opening Night?

Explosive Titans Football
Pro Football Weekly says that Titans WR Nate Washington’s chances of playing opening night vs the Steelers is very much up in the air:

In some respects, the right hamstring injury suffered by Titans WR Nate Washington in advance of the club’s next-to-last preseason game didn’t come at a terrible time, as he had 17 days to recover before the club’s regular-season opener at Pittsburgh. However, the way we hear it, his availability for Week One is very much up in the air.

“It’s not a serious hamstring (injury), but he does have an injury to the hamstring muscle,” Titans head coach Jeff Fisher told reporters. “We’ll be day-to-day, week-to-week here. He’s a quick healer and we’ll get aggressive with his treatment.” Washington has gotten off to a fast start with the Titans, and if he were to miss any time during the regular season, it would be a major loss to an offense depending upon him to be the primary vertical threat. The good news for Tennessee: All-Pro C Kevin Mawae (elbow) is back practicing and is expected to be ready for the Pittsburgh game.
