Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger took to the field missing one thing on Friday: an “R.”
The back of the second-year pro’s practice jersey read METTENBEGER, something he didn’t discover until practice was over.
“I didn’t even realize it,” he said with a smile. “Honestly, I don’t see the big deal. It doesn’t really matter to me. I don’t think anyone noticed. They’ll fix it by tomorrow, I’m sure.”
