If you're talking about Polk, he had 5 tackles and 3 assists against TN. He also had a fumble recovery.

I went back and watched the LB play in the TN game. Polk made some good plays and some bad plays. He wasn't great - he wasn't bad.

Some of Antowain Smith's long runs in the first half were due to Polk overrunning the play or getting caught up inside. At least one of McNair's completions to Kinney (5:53 mark of the 2nd) was due to poor coverage by Polk. But, he (like the rest of the defense) kicked it up a notch in the second half and they all played good. Polk made a couple of good plays, getting tackles on Smith on the Titans second and third drives..

He seemed tentative on a lot of plays but that's to be expected seeing his first real action in this system. He seems to have a little more foot quickness and carry a little more pop than Foreman and he looks heavier than Jay even though they are both listed at 240.
