According to titansonline, Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt had this to say on the preseason performances of Bishop Sankey: “I think that it was obvious that he’s a talented young man. He ran the ball very well last night, very decisive, made good cuts. We’ve seen growth from him, as well. I think, just like with Zach (Mettenberger), we’ve seen growth with Bishop (Sankey). He’s gotten better, obviously, at his exchanges with the quarterbacks. His course on his footwork has improved. His vision is good. He’s seeing the holes well. His protection, he’s done a nicer job with that as he’s gone through it, so from a young guy that you’re trying to get prepared to contribute during the season, you’ve seen growth, you’ve seen him moving along with that, and that’s what you needed to see. I’m happy with him.”
SMITTY: It really is tough speculating how much work Bishop Sankey is going to get in 2014. Will he get starter-type carries, or will be be used far less than his optimistic owners are hoping? I’d be lying if I said I was super confident that Tennessee will use him like a feature back. I won’t bet against him, I think he is very talented, but it’s in the hands of that unpredictable Titans’ coaching staff. The good news is that Shonn Greene won’t be that hard to separate from.
