Titans’ injuries heading into the Falcons game

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Titans rookie receiver Lavelle Hawkins is wearing a walking boot on his left ankle, and coach Jeff Fisher said an MRI exam showed a sprain that likely will keep him out of Tennessee's third exhibition at Atlanta.

But the rookie says he's a fast healer and hopes to return quickly enough to play Friday night. Hawkins caught two passes for a team-high 70 yards in the Titans' 17-16 win over Oakland, including a 51-yard touchdown for his first in the NFL.

Cornerback Nick Harper missed Sunday's practice and has not worked out since suffering a concussion in the Titans' preseason opener.

Fisher says he thought Harper will practice Monday.

Linebacker Keith Bulluck sat out with a right calf, and Fisher says it was too early to know if Bulluck will play against Atlanta (0-2).
