Rookie RB Sankey done with exams, back with Titans
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Bishop Sankey's time in NFL rookie exile finally is over.
The rookie running back stayed away from the Tennessee Titans this offseason until he finished the academic quarter at Washington. That meant he missed all but one of the Titans' organized team activities, but finally rejoined the team Thursday. The Titans conclude the offseason program with a three-day minicamp next week.
Sankey says it was a little strange being a pro player and a student, with NFL rules requiring him to stay away from the team until finishing out the quarter.
Not that he was on campus at Washington. He finished his two communications classes online from his training facility in Los Angeles, taking the final exam Tuesday before flying to Tennessee on Wednesday.
The Titans need Sankey to contribute.
