Starter. Role player. Third-down back. Blocker.

"I put the onus on myself toapproach it as a professional and realize that's my job," Morris said. "It's pretty indicative of most guys in our locker room, which is why I like the attitude around here so much."

Despite a winless season thus far, the Tennessee Titans still have plenty of weapons entering Sunday's contest at Gillette Stadium. That being said, NT Vince Wilfork knows to take nothing for granted. "It's very dangerous because you're on alert the whole game," Wilfork said according to The Providence Journal. "We can't fall asleep. All three phases of the game — we have to do a good job of recognizing what's going on."

Wilforkadded the team cannot give up long drives and must get off the field by forcing turnovers and producing punts. "We can't have teams going 90, 95 yards to win the ballgame. That can't happen. We've got to move on, but there's things you have to take. That's one of the things," Wilfork said according to The Enterprise.

LB Junior Seau said he has "no choice" but to be ready for Sunday's game according to Profootballweekly.com. Seau admitted he was a bit sluggish in his first practice Wednesday, though overall it went well.
