Friday Night Lights

Six games will be held Friday night in week two of the NFL preseason involving 13 former Vols.

Tennessee Titans vs. Tampa Bay Bucaneers Game Center

Luke Stocker and the Tampa Bay Bucs (1-0) will kick off Friday night football at 7:30 when they play host to the Tennessee Titans (0-1) at Raymond James Stadium. Stocker had one catch for 14 yards his last time out.

Detroit Lions vs. Baltimore Ravens Game Center
Jacques McClendon and the Detroit Lions (0-1) will head to Baltimore to face off with Morgan Cox and the Ravens (1-0) for a nationally televised contest on FOX beginning at 8 p.m.

Miami Dolphins vs. Carolina Panthers Game Center
The Miami Dolphins (0-1) roster features three Vols in Kevin Burnett, Tony McDaniel and Jonathan Wade while Tauren Poole is on the Panthers (0-1) for his rookie season.

Wade will more than likely be the only active participant in the game tonight as Burnett and McDaniel have been sidelined for the Dolphins while Poole, who netted his first TD as a Panther last week against the Texans, was carted off the field on Monday with what looked like a concussion.


Linebackers Kevin Burnett, Karlos Dansby and Cameron Wake were on the sideline and didn't practice at Dolphins Camp at Nova Southeastern University in Davie on August 14, 2012.

Buffalo Bills vs. Minnesota Vikings Game Center
Marvin Mitchell and the Vikings (0-1) will play host to Buffalo (0-1) at 8 p.m. Friday night at Mall of America Field. Last time out, Mitchell netted three tackles in a 17-6 loss to San Francisco.
