"Quite honestly, I'm not going to worry myself about it. I'm more or less concerned about how I'm going to look coming down the aisle." -- Eddie George, Tennessee Titan running back who is getting married Sunday, on waiting for his contract situation to be resolved

Running back Eddie George has no structural damage in his injured left shoulder, and quarterback Steve McNair did no further damage to his strained right calf and sprained left ankle in the Tennessee Titans' 20-17 playoff victory Saturday over the Baltimore Ravens. George underwent an MRI exam, and had some soreness and swelling in his shoulder Sunday, a day after dislocating the joint while tackling Ed Reed, who was returning a pass interception.

Tennessee Titan running back Eddie George, who suffered a concussion in the third quarter of Saturday's 34-31 overtime victory over Pittsburgh, said he expects to play in the AFC championship game next weekend. "I should be able to," George said. "I don't know what they graded the concussion at. It's not severe, it's probably a mild concussion. So we'll see how the week goes on."

The Tennessee Titans got a much-needed victory by sticking with what they used to do best. Eddie George rushed for 100 yards for the first time this season and scored two touchdowns, and the Titans ended a losing streak at four by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars, 23-14, on Sunday. The Titans were last in rushing in the league, and George had averaged only 2.7 yards per carry.

Tennessee Titan running back Eddie George returned to practice Friday but still is unsure whether he will play against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. George's left foot swelled considerably after the Titans' 21-13 loss to Dallas last week. He went to a hospital, wore an orthopedic boot early this week and missed two days of practice. "It's just gotten a lot better, but I still think it's going to be a game-time decision," George said Friday.

The Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans wanted to prove whose defense was the best, but there's no way to do that head-to-head. All they can do is stand and watch the other team do its thing and then try to one-up them, like contestants on "Family Feud." So the battle within the battle of this AFC playoff game quickly became Ray Lewis versus Eddie George, the Ravens' all-world linebacker against the Titans' stellar running back. George either ran at Lewis or through him.
