Right guard Chance Warmack is excited about the Tennessee Titans' first road trip this season, even with a long bus ride for just a scrimmage against the Falcons.

The second-year lineman said Sunday he's never scrimmaged against another team. Another plus is that he's from the Atlanta area, so plenty of family will be on hand Monday at the Falcons' headquarters for a joint practice.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt and Atlanta coach Mike Smith scheduled this session about four months ago. Whisenhunt says the scrimmage helps break up training camp before their preseason opener Saturday against Green Bay.

The Titans practiced Sunday, though a handful of veterans had the day off. They were boarding buses for the trip to Atlanta later Sunday and will be returning Monday night.
