NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Titans running back LenDale White did not make it back in time for Tuesday's organized team workouts, leaving coach Jeff Fisher unclear about White's whereabouts.
"Everybody else managed to make it back," Fisher said. "He didn't, so I don't know, I guess he had things that are more important to him than what we're doing. I would assume he would be back at some point today."
White, a second-round pick from Southern California last season, has had other issues this offseason, reporting for the Titans' offseason program at approximately 260 pounds, then suffering a hamstring injury.
Fisher said he had not spoken directly to White but did receive a telephone message from the running back about his absence saying he had flight problems.
White is expected to compete with second-round pick Chris Henry for the starting running back job.
"He'll get on the field eventually. I just hope it's not going to be too late," Fisher said.
"I've been on record with being disappointed with him right now. I hope to have him back on the practice field Thursday. But again, everybody else was here, he wasn't. I'm anxious to hear what kind of excuse he has."
