Just remember, McNair has played hurt before. Don't expect him to be out of the lineup very long. !+)

Fisher says McNair has a chance to play against Jets
By TERESA M. WALKER, AP Sports Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Titans have seen Steve McNair play through a variety of injuries. So coach Jeff Fisher isn't ruling out the NFL's top-rated passer against the New York Jets just because of a strained right calf.

``We know what his history is,'' Fisher said Monday. ``He wants very badly to play in this ballgame. The last time we played in the Meadowlands, he did not practice and probably won't practice this week. If he's able to play, in all likelihood it will be a pregame type of decision.''

McNair strained his calf in the second quarter of Sunday's 38-31 victory over Atlanta, and he had a walking boot on his right leg when he limped off the field after the game. Doctors examined his calf Sunday night, and Fisher said they found limited damage.

That exam, plus McNair being able to use his calf muscle on Monday, made Fisher much more optimistic even as the Titans waited for results of an MRI.

"Regardless of what the MRI says, he still will not be ruled out,'' Fisher said.

The Titans find themselves in a similar situation to a year ago, when McNair was unable to practice because of a rib injury, took a painkilling shot before kickoff and led the Titans to an overtime victory over the New York Giants in the Meadowlands.

McNair is having the best season of his nine-year career. He has thrown for 18 touchdowns with only four interceptions while completing 65.3 percent of his passes. His 106.3 passer rating currently is more than 16 points better than his previous best of 90.2 set in 2001.

I hope he plays because the guy who has him also has McNabb and hasn't figured out McNabb has outscored McNair the last 3 weeks.
