The NFL lockout presumably will end very soon, and you might have heard there is a slight panic over the fitness of players since they haven’t gone through any organized team activities.
Former Titans coach Jeff Fisher was on “NFL Total Access” on Monday and talked about what to expect in training camps around the league.
“I don’t think you’ll see many two-a-days,” Fisher said. “I think what you’re going to see this year is a walkthrough in the morning and a practice in the afternoon, or vice versa, and then there’s going to be some time off. Recovery is going to be the most important thing. …
“There’s going to be an assessment period where you’re going to have to see how they are and not necessarily test them, make sure you’re stretching and recovering. Who knows?”
Whether or not there’s a noticeable increase in injuries during the preseason is something to watch after players report to their teams.
In the interview with Fran Charles and Michael Lombardi, Fisher also discussed his coaching future and offered his thoughts on Vince Young‘s prospects to start elsewhere in the NFL.
