Titans' Cook practices for second day
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Rookie tight end Jared Cook, a North Gwinnett grad, practiced for a second consecutive day Friday but will be listed as questionable for the Tennessee Titans' home opener Sunday against the Houston Texans.
Cook, a third-round pick from South Carolina, led the Titans with 17 receptions in the preseason but missed last week's season opener in Pittsburgh due to a sprained ankle.
Broncos' Moreno plans to rein in eagerness
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - At Georgia, Knowshon Moreno was known for his flash and his dash. The same couldn't be said for his NFL debut.
The Denver Broncos rookie was overanxious, missing assignments and holes alike. Moreno has vowed to rein in some of that eagerness.
Just not too much, though.
After all, one of the qualities that led Denver to select him with the 12th overall pick in the draft was his ability to make something out of nothing. The Broncos don't want to bridle that, just corral it a little.
'We always can improve and I'm going to let him go at that,' said Broncos running backs coach Bobby Turner, one of the few assistants retained after the firing of Mike Shanahan.
Coming out of Georgia, Tuner liked what he saw in Moreno - a lot. Moreno averaged 105 yards rushing a game, displaying dazzling moves and jukes that quickly became Internet sensations.
'He can do everything,' Turner said. 'He can block. He can catch. And then, obviously, to be a running back you've got to be able to run the ball. But I saw a person that was the complete package.'
Eagles' McNabb doubtful to play
PHILADELPHIA - Eagles quarterback Dononvan McNabb is doubtful for Sunday's game against New Orleans because of a fractured rib.
