NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans will wrap up their first week of training camp on Saturday with a practice at Nissan Stadium.

Titans Online chatted with offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie on several topics, to get his observations so far. For starters, Robiskie said he's been impressed with how well players retained information over the summer.

Here's Robiskie on a handful of topics…

"He's been very sharp. I think he's been our No.1 guy for remembering all of it. Even our no-huddle stuff. Just being able to retain what this is and what that is, he was really, really sharp coming back. He never missed a beat. When guys leave and get away for six weeks, you think they may be rusty with this or that. With Marcus, there was no rust. And he's looked really good to me, too."

On DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry

"They have been doing pretty good as a combo. They finish runs, and their ability to hit the hole, it's been good. If they see a little crack, they hit the hole. DeMarco has been good. Derrick, he just needs to keep studying the offense, studying all the combinations of it, which is usually the case. He is very, very sharp with the run, when we hand it to him, but he has to keep studying on his protection and things like that."

On the offensive line

"We are getting a little better, and tougher each day. The first day or two we started off slow. The first day we put pads on I felt we were a little bit antsy, guys were jumping around, diving at people, missing people. They were going aggressive, but they forgot technique. I think every day we get a little better with that part of it."

On who has stood out on offensive line**

"Taylor Lewan. Taylor will do something every practice to make you say, 'Whoa. Wow. This guy is special.' He has it all. His ability to compete and get after guys, his ability to finish on the field, getting after guys, finish around the ball. The guy is a good football player."

On veteran receiver Andre Johnson

"He doesn't look 50 years old. When Andre came in and everybody said: 'He's an old guy, he's an old guy.' Well, he is moving very smooth. He looks good to me."

On whether the Titans have to pick between veterans Andre Johnson and Harry Douglas

"It's not like that in my mind. I have room for the best guys we can play. We are still early into it, and the guys who can make plays are the ones who are going to be here. Once we get going and get in the games, it's the guys who are going to be here. Harry has made some really good plays. I don't know who says we don't have room for both. We have room for guys who can play."

On rookie receiver Tajae Sharpe

"He has been good so far. It's still early, but he has been good."
