The punch that Titans rookie running back LeGarrette Blount threw at teammate Eric Bakhtiari at the end of practice Wednesday might not be a big deal to coach Jeff Fisher and the Titans, but they need to watch things.

Blount told me that he knew he was going to be taunted and teased and pushed to lose his temper after his infamous cold-cocking of Boise State player Byron Hout. Blount said months ago that he wouldn’t respond. I know that tempers get heated in practice and these things happen all the time. But you better believe Blount’s potential to lose it will be on scouting reports and players could take it upon themselves to egg him on.

Blount, undrafted out of Oregon, is expected to make the Titans’ roster but he better learn to manage his emotions or his career will be short-lived.
