Tye Hill, another offseason signee, hurt a hamstring in the opening minutes of camp and also is working hard to return.

Tulloch said players must step up.

“This is a no-name defense right now. We have to make a name for ourselves. We didn’t finish as good as we should’ve last season. … People don’t know who we are, and we want to make a statement this season,” Tulloch said.

Notes: Chris Johnson has a new pair of shoes thanks to Nike sitting in his locker Saturday. On the back of the red and white shoes? “CJ2K” is written on the back of the left shoe, and “KNOWS” on the right. He said he will use the shoes for workouts and running. … The Titans were walking off the field after a padded practice when Hayes tossed a tray of ice water onto Johnson’s back for a quick cool down. … Offensive line coach Mike Munchak was back at work Saturday after getting Friday off to take part in Hall of Fame celebrations in Canton, Ohio. … The Titans’ first day off of camp will be Sunday.
