With the first roster reductions of the season less than a week away, tensions will surely be high Saturday night, so here are five questions I have heading into the Silver and Black’s matchup with the Titans.
He returned to practice earlier this week, and while he wasn’t willing to speculate about his availability for Saturday’s matchup with Tennessee, Head Coach Jack Del Rio was clear – the rookie running back will play.
