First and 10: From Ground Zero to the mountaintop

Tuesday might be just another day for you, but it should be quite eventful for former Titans coach
Jeff Fisher and retired players Tedy Bruschi and Chad Lewis. Along with members of the Wounded Warriors Project, an NFL executive and an NFL Network cameraman, they will begin their day in lower Manhattan with a tour of Ground Zero. Following a midday trip to the NFL office to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell, they will end the day at Newark Airport, where they will board a flight to Africa to begin their trek to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. You can follow their progress throughout the trip on NFL.com and NFL Network — beginning with an appearance by Fisher on tonight’s “NFL Total Access.”
