Banged up Volunteers
should be ready Sat.

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee offensive guard Jarrod Shaw, center Cody Pope and wide receiver Denarius Moore should be available Saturday when the Volunteers host seventh-ranked Oregon.
Tight end Luke Stocker also played a limited role in Wednesday’s practice due to a sore shoulder.
Defensive lineman Minor Bowens missed Wednesday’s practice because of a staph infection, which coach Derek Dooley says has plagued a few of his players this week.

Titan wideout Britt
gets Fisher’s message

NASHVILLE (AP) — Hearing coach Jeff Fisher tell him he could be hurting his teammates is something that Kenny Britt says shot right through him.
Now the Tennessee Titans receiver promises he’s focused on work and his personal life won’t distract him now.
Britt dropped two passes and was flagged for a false start in the final preseason game, prompting Fisher to bench him. They talked briefly after the game, and Britt said Wednesday that helped him realize how much he put his team at risk.
He was only 20 when drafted out of Rutgers in the first round last year.
But he’s big, fast and possibly the best receiver Tennessee has had in years, and the Titans expect him to be even better after leading the team with 701 yards receiving.
