HEAD COACH JEFF FISHER**

(on Tony Brown and how difficult it is to play well after missing significant practice time)

I think it's going to improve.  I think it would be unrealistic to ask a younger player to do it, but because of Tony's experience he can do it.  He studies and he's getting a lot done inside.  I think hopefully in the next few weeks he'll improve to maybe where he'll be able to practice earlier in the week.

(on how Tony Brown will be listed on the injury report)

Full practice, questionable.

(on how Jacob Ford will be listed on the injury report)

No practice, questionable.

(on how Mike Otto will be listed on the injury report)

I'm sorry, Otto is not on the report—that's J-Mac (Jason McCourty), no practice, out.

(on if Rob Bironas is healthy)

He's fine.

(on how Alterraun Verner did in practice this week)

He had a good week, had a real good week.  He's ready to go and he understands his challenges and has respect for their offense, but he's well prepared.

(on why all the defensive linemen switched jerseys for today's practice)

They do that on occasion.  They do it to confuse people.

(on if he's impressed that Jason Babin has already been named as one of Nashville's 25 Most Beautiful People)

I wasn't aware of that, really?  That's quite a list.

(on if he is a voter for Nashville's 25 Most Beautiful People)

No, I am not a voting member there.

(on him throwing to the linebackers every Friday)

It's something I've done every Friday for years—throw to the linebackers.  I'm sure Keith Bulluck misses it.

(on how his arm is compared to 12 years ago when he started the tradition)

It takes me to the bye week to feel good.
