NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans – and their fans – showed up at Nissan Stadium on Saturday night ready for practice.
Mother Nature had other plans.
Storms forced the team to cancel Saturday's session. The practice has been rescheduled for Monday night, which will also be open to fans at the stadium with free admission and parking. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m., warmups begin at 6:30 and the practice is schedule to run until around 9 p.m.
"We did what we could to wait it out,'' Titans coach Mike Mularkey said of Saturday's postponement. "We've made some good decisions up to this point, but we just felt like this was best for the team. We're disappointed for the fans – I know we had a lot of fans out there wanting to get a chance to see our team. … I think the whole team is disappointed we didn't get a chance to get out there tonight.
"So we will do a do-over Monday night and hopefully we can get a bunch of fans out here after work to watch us compete."
The Titans aren't scheduled to practice on Sunday. The team was initially scheduled to practice at Saint Thomas Sports Park on Monday night, but the team will instead move to the stadium.
Players arrived at Nissan Stadium on Saturday night around 4:30 p.m. and waited in the locker room until the practice was postposed around 7 p.m. Moving Saturday's practice to the team's bubble at STSP wasn't an option since it's not scheduled to be completely finished until later next week.
Mularkey said he's happy with how the team performed the first week of camp.
The Titans face the San Diego Chargers in the preseason opener on Saturday at Nissan Stadium.
"I think we are making progress,'' Mularkey said. "I think we are getting better. We are making less mistakes, and I think we are playing faster."
