On his weekly radio show, Ken Whisenhunt talked about how disappointed he was in the team's wide receivers, particularly Hunter. "Justin didn’t have the greatest game last week," Whisenhunt said. "And I think those corners were a little bit more physical with him. The one he had, the long one down the sideline, he’s got to make that catch."
Whisenhunt went on to say the club has high expectations for Hunter. Overall, he said the team was encouraged by Hunter's skill set, but that Hunter still needs to refine some aspects of his game.
After a very productive preseason,
Hunter said he is still working on building rapport with quarterback Jake Locker, per The Tennessean.
"It takes time because I didn't have him all year last year with him being hurt, so we still have to get into rhythm with one another," Hunter said. "But we're working on that during practice and everything, so we're getting used to each other. It's going to show up."
Hunter showed a great feel for the fade pattern during training camp and the preseason, but the Titans haven't used it much through two weeks.
"No, not yet, but you can still look for it," Hunter said. "The time will come, just game-planning and everything. "People do expect that when you get to the goalline because my frame is so big. So you've got to do other things, too. You just can't keep doing the same thing over and over."
Hunter's longest catch went 23 yards. The Titans are back in action Week 3 at Cincinnati.
Hunter is dealing with a knee injury. He was limited in practice Wednesday, but was able to participate fully Thursday and Friday.
