Titans' White working way back from injury

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 20, 2006) -- Titans rookie running back LenDale White said the hamstring injury that has bothered him since the spring has healed, and he is now working on conditioning.

"It feels a lot better getting in there with the team and coming along," said White, who participated in team drills for a second consecutive minicamp practice. "It definitely feels good to finally be running the football, instead of rehabbing all day."

Tennessee picked the Southern California standout in the second round of the NFL draft last April. White dropped out of the first round in large part because of the injury.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher said he likes what he's seen so far from White, who will compete with veterans Chris Brown and Travis Henry for playing time.

"It was good to see him out there," Fisher said. "I think we see a little more each day."

White, who has lost 11 pounds since playing in the Rose Bowl at 250 pounds, has a personal trainer who will help get him in shape for camp.

"I'll work out for the whole month, and hopefully come back and win a spot and get ready to play football games," White said.
