On Friday, McNair worked with trainers inside, then did some
tenuous five-step drops on the side, while making just a few
throws. He showed a little bit of progress, but not enough for
coach Jeff Fisher to declare it a major advance.
"I think he's been able to do that for a couple of days now.
That's not a major step in the rehab," Fisher said. "He bounced
back a couple of steps today. He didn't do anything full speed. He
didn't even do anything half speed. He didn't put a lot of pressure
on the leg. What he did today shows that he is slowly improving,
but it wasn't a giant step by any means."
The main question is whether playing will put him at risk for
"We're not just talking about Monday night here. We've got a
couple of games after that that are very important. We don't want
to put him in a situation where he couldn't play later on in the
year by playing him too early here," Fisher said.
The Titans will test McNair a few hours before kickoff to see
whether he will be able to play. If he can't, fourth-year man Billy Volek would make his first career start.
