Rishard Matthews has been in the NFL the past six seasons Cheap Marcus Mariota Jersey , and now the veteran is hoping his experience learning other offenses will help him get up to speed very quickly with the Titans' newest scheme.Matthews missed the Titans' organized team activities, mandatory minicamp in June, training camp and first three preseason games with an undisclosed injury. He passed his physical Sunday and was removed from the physically unable to perform list then practiced Monday.That left the receiver watching teammates practice, trying to learn new coordinator Matt LaFleur's offense in meetings and walk-throughs without taking a single snap.Now the 6-foot receiver who led Tennessee with 1,740 yards receiving over the past two seasons can take part in an offense that has him very excited."This is the longest I've been out of football," Matthews said before practice. "It's tough watching, but as far as the offense I'm really excited. I think the sky's the limit for our group. We have a bunch of talented young players. I think Coach LaFleur has explained that a lot of people will be moving around, and people aren't going to be able to get a beat on us so easy, so that's also exciting."That's a big change from last December when Matthews argued for the Titans to use a no-huddle or quick-tempo offense to give quarterback Marcus Mariota more freedom with the team mired in a three-game skid that cost Tennessee the AFC South title. He also said then that the Titans needed more creativity on offense and work more to create better matchups.The Titans fired coach Mike Mularkey after the season ended in January and hired first-time head coach Mike Vrabel. He brought in LaFleur, who also had interviewed for the head coaching job.With new coaches and a new offense, Matthews found himself struggling with an undisclosed injury that he said was not related to an injured hamstring that cost him two games last season. He watched the offseason program from April into mid-June and started training camp on the physically unable to perform list. The Titans weren't too concerned about Matthews' return, signing him to an extension through 2019 last week.Vrabel has been impressed by what he's seen of the receiver who ranks second on the Titans only to three-time Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker with 118 catches over the past two seasons. Vrabel called Matthews' attitude "great" and a good reminder to younger players how to be professional at working hard to get back into the lineup. The coach also likes how Matthews plays."There's a toughness to it. There's a grit to it," Vrabel said. "I think Rishard would tell you that he's not the fastest, not the biggest Ryan Succop Jersey , not the quickest, but at the end of the day, there's a lot of production, and there's some consistency there which is really valued."Matthews, who started his NFL career with four seasons in Miami, has started 20 of his 30 games since signing with Tennessee in March 2016. He ranks ninth in the NFL averaging 14.7 yards per catch among players with at least 100 catches over the past two seasons.He's also the key veteran in a very young receiving group. Corey Davis is expected to be the No. 1 receiver after being the fifth player drafted in 2017, but is still looking for his first touchdown catch in the regular season. Taywan Taylor is going into his second season, and Tajae Sharpe spent his second season on injured reserve last year."I'm just thankful to be back now," Matthews said.NOTES: LB Brian Orakpo, Walker and rookie LB Rashaan Evans all returned to practice Monday. Orakpo originally hurt a shoulder July 27, and Walker was hurt Aug. 16 in a joint practice with Tampa Bay. Evans returned to practice last week but left early. "It's good to see those guys back out there and working and just fresh faces," Vrabel said.Follow Teresa M. Walker at teresamwalkerTitans Seek Road Win, Revenge in Miami The last time Titans QB Marcus Mariota was in Miami, he was a nightmare for the Dolphins&#8217; defense - both through the air and on the ground.Mariota completed 20/29 passes for 163 yards and three passing touchdowns. He carried the ball seven times for 60 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown.Last season Jurrell Casey Jersey , Mariota was unavailable for the Dolphins game due to a hamstring injury. This meant backup QB Matt Cassel would be tasked with leading the offense.The results were not great.Cassel had Rishard Matthews, Delanie Walker and a tandem of running backs that were capable of getting the job done on the ground.In 2016, Matthews recorded four catches for 32 yards and a score. Matthews tallied three catches for 34 yards with Cassel at the helm. In 2016, Walker helped torch the Dolphins by adding 66 yards on five receptions, as well as a receiving touchdown. Last season, he had three catches for 25 yards against Miami.However, the end of the first quarter was controversial. Cassel hit Walker for a 59 yard touchdown strike near the end of the first quarter. A questionable Offensive Pass Interference call on Jonnu Smith negated the score. Two plays later, Cassel&#8217;s forward, spiral-spinning pass was ruled a fumble resulting in a Dolphins touchdown. The 14-point swing was a huge blow that a Cassel-led Titans team couldn&#8217;t overcome.Mariota absence resulted in a Titans loss. A loss that haunted the team down the stretch in the race for the AFC South crown.Misused BackfieldBefore we move on from discussing last season&#8217;s debacle against the Dolphins, it is important to note the egregious misuse of the Titans backs in the 2017 season - but specifically against Miami.In Derrick Henry&#8217;s rookie season, he carried the ball seven times and ran for 54 yards. His limited carries were a by-product of DeMarco Murray&#8217;s amazing production in 2016. Last season, it was clear early that Murray was dealing with an injury that hampered his performance. HC Mike Mularkey and OC Terry Robiskie continued to chose a less than 100% Murray over a younger, healthy Henry. Many stated that the team lacked confidence in Henry&#8217;s pass blocking skills, which contributed to Murray getting the nod despite injury.That being said Cheap Rashaan Evans Jersey , the Titans should have leaned on the legs of Henry and Murray due to being without Mariota. An injured Murray finished the game with triple the amount of Henry&#8217;s carries. As we&#8217;ve learned from Henry - he needs a high-number of carries to really get hot. His &#8220;workload&#8221; of four carries against the &#8216;Phins is unacceptable as he could have had more of an impact had he had more opportunities.New Offense DebutAs stated by HC Mike Vrabel, OC Matt LaFleur held back some of the offensive schemes/concepts leading up to final cuts. The move was smart, considering the Dolphins picked up QB Luke Falk to probe for some information on their week one opponent.What can we expect from the offense in Miami?A healthy Mariota will have all of his arsenal available. WR Corey Davis was sidelined against the Dolphins last season. He has his sights set on making an impact immediately. It helps when both Walker and Matthews will be lined up with him.Throughout the preseason, the Titans offense never had 100% of the starting personnel available due to injuries. On Sunday, they&#8217;ll be at full strength - minus RT Jack Conklin.The tandem of Henry and RB Dion Lewis will not be mismanaged in LaFleur&#8217;s scheme. Expect to see a balanced approach with the hot hand getting the majority of the work.Lewis is familiar with his former AFC East rival. In two meetings last season, Lewis totaled 20 carries for 129 yards. As a receiver, he racked up 51 yards on six receptions. Although Lewis didn&#8217;t find the end zone, his impact on the game as a member of a &#8220;committee&#8221; can&#8217;t go unnoticed. Mariota showed during the preseason that he is comfortable dumping it to Lewis when a play breaks down. Lewis proved he is capable of turning a short-yard dump pass into a big chunk play that can move the chains. This will help in third down situations. Offense ExpectationsIt&#8217;s important keep offensive expectations in the realm of reason. The Titans will likely feature a run-heavy game plan that will open up the play action. Even if the Titans don&#8217;t find any success running the ball early, they must practice patience in the build-up. The Dolphins will eventually sell-out to stop the run, opening up the passing lanes for Mariota.The Titans must also get Davis involved early. Dialing up some early bubble screens to Davis will help with his confidence, as well as Mariota&#8217;s. LaFleur will also incorporate some bootlegs and calculated screen plays to keep the defense honest. Getting Henry and Lewis going early will help in this regard. Setting the tempo will be key, but attempting to establish a ground game is equally important. It seems somewhat counter-intuitive - how can a team commit to establish the run, yet execute a fast-paced attack that likely features quick read passes?It&#8217;s a calculated balance. LaFleur&#8217;s third-down calls will be imperative to establishing that delicate balance.How will he do it?We will find out on Sunday.
