NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 1, 2004) -- Steve McNair stretched and ran Friday, Oct. 1, but he didn't throw any passes. Yet he's looking healthy enough
that Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher won't rule him out against San Diego.
After the quarterback bruised his sternum in last week's 15-12 loss to the Jaguars, sending him to the hospital for two nights, Fisher said he didn't
think McNair would be able to play against the Chargers.
Fisher said Friday that McNair has "improved significantly."
"We are going to have a walkthrough out there tomorrow, and we will see how he is tomorrow," Fisher said.
McNair said he wasn't sure if he will play and that it depends on how he feels Sunday.
"It's still hard to breathe, take a deep breath. That's my main concern. If I have to scramble, if I have to go out and come back, can I call the
play? That's the main objective in running, trying to get the cardio back up," McNair said.
