Carolina Panthers: Cam Newton again relegated to spectator

On the downside, Henry - even though he was running behind the first-team offensive line for the most part - found very little room, totaling just 36 yards on 16 carries. The team has limited his work and kept him out of the first two preseason games, including Saturday's 34-27 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Two first-quarter turnovers led to 14 Titans points.

Jackson, who also broke up another Newton pass during a 1-on-1 drill, intercepted a pass in a team drill.

The Panthers topped Houston 27-17 last week in their first preseason game as Webb tossed a pair of touchdown passes and threw for 128 yards.

Marcus Mariota came closer to the quarterback the Titans saw during their peak last season by accurately completing passes, using his legs to make plays and having the pocket presence to make correct reads.

"It was a lot better (than last week)", Mariota said.

"Played a couple joint practices in the past and the preseason game. We've just got to continue to build this momentum, build the foundation and get ready for the season". After Carolina rookie Christian McCaffrey scored on a 17-yard TD run in the second quarter, Henry would add his second touchdown of the game.

Muguruza & Halep face off for the Cincinnati title
While she can't do it this week, Muguruza would be in the hunt for the top ranking at the US Open, which starts on August 28. Since beating Venus Williams for the Wimbledon title, she has reached the quarterfinals of her last three tournaments.

The Titans opted to sit running back DeMarco Murray, which allowed Henry a chance to start again, and make plays.

The Titans made some big plays on defense in this one as well. The Titans had auctioned the first two play calls to a fan for charity. But an illegal-procedure penalty pushed the ball back to the 7.

The Carolina Panthers are hoping for a bounce-back season after the team failed to live up to expectations during the 2016 National Football League campaign.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey challenged the offense after its lackluster preseason opener against the New York Jets.

In today's game, the Tennessee Titans took control right from the start, jumping out to a 17-0 lead after one quarter. Carolina would tie up the game on a 37-yard field goal from Graham Gano, but several minutes later it was a three-yard TD run from David Fluellen that put the Titans ahead for good.
