Titans left guard Andy Levitre will be playing Saturday despite having an appendectomy two weeks ago.

Center Brian Schwenke and right guard Chance Warmack are ready to show how much better they can be in their second year. And tackles Michael Roos and Michael Oher are playing well enough that rookie Taylor Lewan may spend this season on the bench.

Their first test comes Saturday night in the preseason opener against Green Bay with Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews.

The Titans' offensive line appears to in better shape a year after an overhaul brought in three new starters.

Roos has been the Titans' left tackle since 2006 and likes how they're pushing each other.
