Diving catch pains
Titans’ top pick

NASHVILLE (AP) — Titans’ top draft pick Kendall Wright left practice early Thursday after hurting his shoulder diving for a ball. Tennessee coach Mike Munchak says he expects the No. 20th pick overall to be sore, though the Titans still planned to run tests on the receiver to be sure.
Jake Locker threw the pass and took blame for throwing a bad ball that went inside.
“Always hate to see a guy get injured trying to make a play he made a great effort at it and you just hope it’s nothing too serious,” Locker said.
Wright is the only Titans’ draft pick still unsigned. The receiver from Baylor was not in the locker room after the team’s final organized team activity.
The Titans have their minicamp next week, but Wright may be held out just to make sure he’s ready for training camp.
