NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – With Hurricane Matthew headed to south Florida, the location of Sunday’s Titans vs. Dolphins game is in question.

Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday after practice the league has to make a decision by Thursday if they are going to move the game.

If they did move it, they could take it to a neutral site like Jacksonville or Atlanta since neither the Falcons nor Jaguars are home this weekend. They also could move the game to Nissan Stadium giving the Titans a ninth home game.

Mularkey said they are simply preparing to go to Miami until they hear differently.

“I haven’t been involved with that at all. I know internally we always have plans for all away games, and this one, with the weather conditions down there, you’ve got to talk about the what ifs, if that happens,” he explained. “I don’t know anything about what’s going on with the NFL. I know I have a bunch of family in Ft. Lauderdale that I’m concerned about.”

Most of the Titans players expressed concern for the residents of Florida–but not for the location of the game.

Left tackle Taylor Lewan said he just wants to play football.

“I don’t care man. I mean, we can go to Amsterdam. I don’t care where we play; I just want to play ball. So, I’ll be wherever I need to be on Sunday. I’ll be at the position I need to be at. I’ll play as hard as I possibly can,” he explained.

Both the Titans and Dolphins enter the game 1-3 and Mularkey has said this is a critical game for both teams. After this game, the Titans play their next three all at home.
