The Tennessean - [Full Article]

After finishing last season with a flourish and recording a strong training camp, tight end Jared Cook figured to be a significant factor in the offense this season.

That may eventually prove to be the case, but he was only a bit player in the loss to the Jaguars last Sunday. Cook was thrown to twice and caught one pass for seven yards. He had another reception nullified because of a holding penalty on guard Leroy Harris.

“We definitely feel like he’s still a weapon,” Titans Coach Mike Munchak said. “That’s a good thing … But we weren’t able to use (him) the way we hope to use (him) going forward.”

One problem, of course, is that the Titans only ran 49 offensive plays and had possession of the ball for just over 20 minutes, limiting opportunities for everyone on that side of the ball.

“We didn’t have that many offensive reps,” Cook said. “Their offense pretty much killed the clock and took the majority of the clock. It was just hard for us to get things going. When you come out as slow as we did and you don’t have many opportunities, that’s going to leave you in the negative.”
