Titans' Washington in uniform for Steelers

Sep 10, 2009 - 11:43 PM PITTSBURGH(AP) -- Tennessee Titans wide receiver Nate Washington warmed up without apparent problems despite a hamstring injury and was in uniform for Thursday night's season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers, his former team.

Washington left the Super Bowl champions after last season to sign with the Titans, who were seeking a deep receiving threat.

Deactivated for the Titans was tight end Jared Cook, a third-round draft pick from Florida who aggravated an ankle injury during practice.

As expected, Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons (high ankle sprain) didn't play after not practicing the week before the game.

Pittsburgh held out three veteran players: cornerback Keiwan Ratliff and wide receiver Shaun McDonald, both of whom were signed during the offseason, and defensive end Nick Eason. Eason sat down so first-round draft pick Ziggy Hood could dress.

No one has shouted yet.
