Titans think Ky.'s Rafael Little is a smart gamble

NASHVILLE (AP) -- Rafael Little doesn't feel comfortable yet, even though he has a locker and a spot with the Tennessee Titans.

A torn anterior cruciate ligament does that to a running back.

Little, of the University of Kentucky, is likely to miss this coming season after tearing his left ACL at the Senior Bowl in January.

But the Titans think it's a smart gamble to latch onto an undrafted player who is one of only three in Southeastern Conference history with 2,500 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving.

Little also had been talking with the San Francisco 49ers and two other teams he wouldn't identify.

But he decided to try his luck with the Titans because the team is so close to his home in Anderson, S.C., and Kentucky.
