NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Linebacker Derrick Morgan missed a second straight day of practice for the Tennessee Titans with his injured left hamstring.Whether Morgan plays or not Sunday, the Titans know they must do a better job of pressuring Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford than they did against Minnesota journeyman Shaun Hill in the opener.The Vikings backup quarterback was not sacked by the Titans, who also didnt force any turnovers. Against the more explosive Lions offense, the Titans must find a way to attack Stafford, who was 31 of 39 for 340 yards with three touchdowns passes in a win at Indianapolis .Weve got to create turnovers, Titans linebacker Brian Orakpo said. Last week you saw two great defenses going at it, but what was the difference in the game was turnovers, and weve got to do a good job of getting some this week.Orakpo not only was held without a sack in the opener, he was not credited with a tackle either.Sometimes its like that, Orakpo said.

We got a couple where we almost had the ball out. But almost doesnt count unless youre pitching horseshoes. We want to do better in that area.Doing better might prove difficult if Morgan is limited or doesnt play Sunday, though the Titans believe they are better equipped to handle his absence now than when he missed six games last year with a shoulder injury. They drafted Kevin Dodd with the No. 33 pick overall out of Clemson with David Bass likely to start at outside linebacker if Morgan is out.One of the things weve been very encouraged about this years defense is I think we have more depth, particularly in that position LeBeau said. David Bass had a lot of snaps last year filling in for Derrick and did a great job for us really. I feel really good about his ability to go in there and perform at an NFL level.We have a couple of draft choices (Kevin Dodd and Aaron Wallace) that we feel good about that are making great progress.Note: WR Kendall Wright was limited again to individual work with his injured left hamstring.---Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: ;Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
