NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth and center Kevin Mawae sat out a short practice Wednesday with six other Titans.
"I expect everyone to have a chance to practice at some time during the week and play," coach Jeff Fisher said. "The only person who will be close is Gilbert Gardner."
The Titans signed cornerback Chidi Iwuoma to replace Eric King, who had surgery on his left forearm Monday. Team officials worked him out a few weeks ago and brought him in as a key backup and special teams player.
"We felt like he would be a nice fit as Eric's replacement," Fisher said.
Other Titans who sat out practice included right guard Benji Olson (team decision), running back LenDale White (knee), linebacker David Thornton (right knee), defensive end Antwan Odom (ankle) and Gardner, who hurt his calf in practice two weeks ago.
