NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Titans receiver Justin Hunter is focused on football.
Speaking to reporters on Friday for the first time since being charged in an incident in Virginia Beach, Va., earlier this month, Hunter referred all questions to his attorney.
“Right now it’s in the hands of my attorney and I feel good about how the process is going,” Hunter said. “Football is my sanctuary. I come here and block everything out. I had a good time out there today.”
Hunter has a Sept. 3 court date.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team is supporting Hunter, and standing behind him.
