Titans fans should expect to see rookie running Bishop Sankey earlier and more often this week against Cleveland, according to coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Whisenhunt said on his radio show on 104.5-FM on Tuesday that Sankey – the top overall running back selected in the draft last May – will likely get more reps against the Browns than he has so far this season.

Sankey has been on the field for 22 and 29 snaps over the last two weeks, more so than any other Titans running back. He's carried 16 times for 95 yards in those contests and added three receptions for 32 yards, sparking the Titans to two of their better drives – both in the second half.

"You will see (more reps for Sankey). That's coming," Whisenhunt said on the show. "And I think you'll see more of that earlier in the game this week.
