The Tennessee Titans will hold joint practices with the Carolina Panthers for two days leading up to their preseason game at Nissan Stadium on Aug. 19.
The Titans and Panthers will practice together on Aug. 16 and 17 at Saint Thomas Sports Park in sessions that will be free and open to the public. Times will be announced at a later date.
“We are excited to be able to get done after a number of discussions with Coach (Ron) Rivera,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. “These practices certainly will benefit both teams with quality snaps in training camp being so valuable. Facing another team in practice helps you evaluate players in a different environment and improve as a team. It will be two days of physical play between two competitive teams. I am really looking forward to it.”
The Titans last had joint practices with another club during Mike Munchak’s tenure when they traveled to Dalton, Ga., to work with the Atlanta Falcons. The Titans, in the past, have worked against the Colts, Dolphins and Falcons at Saint Thomas Sports Park and traveled to Illinois to work with the Rams in 1999.
