NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Friday at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park to continue preparations for Monday's game against the Buffalo Bills.
Here's a look at some Titans topics in quick-hitting fashion:
-Caleb Farley will never forget his first Monday Night Football game.
It came last year, against the Buffalo Bills.
Unfortunately, it ended with Farley leaving the field with a torn ACL.
Now the second-year defensive back is preparing for another MNF game vs the Bills, and he hopes it leaves a better memory behind.
"I am excited just to go out there and get a second shot at it," Farley said on Friday. "This game last year was the game I got injured, on a Monday night, as ironic as that is. So I am just excited to be able to get back out there and get another shot at it.
"(A year later) I feel good, I am confident. And I am just ready to go out there and cut it loose and play and make plays to help us get this win."
Farley played 17 snaps on defense in the opener against the Giants, in addition to 15 more snaps on special teams. Farley was credited with a tackle against the Giants.
Farley said he's ready to do more, when asked.
"I just do whatever they ask me to do to the best of my ability," Farley said. "I feel like if I take care of that, I try and earn a bigger role and everything should take care of itself.
"I am definitely motivated and ready to show it on Monday. I am ready to go out there and have a good game and go out there to compete."
