NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger knows only too well the intensity of the Alabama-LSU rivalry. Mettenberger was sucker-punched last weekend by an Alabama fan while at a bar with fellow rookie Taylor Lewan. A man came up to him and said, "Roll Tide." The former LSU quarterback, says he answered "Good luck with that" before being slugged. The man ran out of the bar before being chased down. Now, Mettenberger keeps hearing "Roll Tide" from teammates.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Shonn Greene has done enough sitting and watching the past few months. Now the Tennessee running back is back on the field and couldn't be happier at how much better his right knee feels. Greene took the first snaps Saturday at the Titans' initial training camp practice, his first work since having arthroscopic surgery in May on the same knee that cost him five games last season. He says he was a bit hesitant, but his knee held up and felt pretty good.
