Thanks to Jimmy Morris of Music City Miracles for the time. It looks like the young, Redskins secondary will have their hands full the first couple drive with Wright, Britt, and Washington.

1.) How has RGIII's former teammate, Kendall Wright, looked and what can we expect from him Thursday?

Jimmy Morris: Wright has been really solid in camp. He shed some weight this offseason, and they should use him in a role that is more suited to his strengths this year. I would expect him to get 10-12 snaps on Thursday night.

2.) How is Jake Locker looking in his now third year? Are fans ready to reach for the white towel? The last time we played each other Rusty Smith was the QB...oh my.

Titans' fans will never forget that game. That was the day that everything finally blew up between Jeff Fisher and Vince Young. As for Locker, this is a big year for him. The Titans new offensive coordinator, Dowell Loggains, has tailored the offense to him. Locker has looked much better and more confident in camp this year.

Some Titans fans are ready to give up on him, but most are willing to give him this year to sink or swim.

3.) Who of your 2013 draft class has had the best camp and who is a player to keep an eye out during the game as a potential breakout player?

Chance Warmack got to camp late, but he has been as good as advertised. The Titans are thrilled with what they have seen from him so far.

Justin Hunter is the breakout candidate. The Titans traded up to get him in the second round, and he has shown flashes of greatness. He has also looked like a rookie at times- showing the inconsistency that made him drop to the 2nd round.

4.) For Redskins fans, a lot of eyes will be on the RT position, Tyler Polumbus. Can we expect Derrick Morgan to square up there a lot? How is the pass rush looking?

Morgan should spend most of his plays over there, and he was improved last season. The pass rush should be better this season. They are going to use Akeem Ayers as a defensive end a lot on passing downs, and he prove dot be a disruptive force in that role last season.

5.) It's been more than 6 months without a Kenny Britt arrest...are you nervous? Kidding aside, will he see a lot of action Thursday? Skins are starting 3 rookie defensive backs that we'd love to see get tested. How about the rest of the WR corps?

Absolutely I am. I would expect Britt, like Wright, to see 10-12 snaps. The Titans are excited about this group of receivers. It is the deepest group they have had since the moved to Tennessee. I have already mentioned Britt, Wright and Hunter, but Nate Washington is the unsung hero of the group. He has been the team's most consistent receiver for the last two years.
