NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Chance Warmack has been hearing about Houston defensive end J.J. Watt since he was playing in college at Alabama. Now the rookie right guard is preparing to defend Watt in person.

In his second NFL game.

Having to play the 2012 AP defensive player of the year twice each season in the AFC South is why the Titans drafted Warmack at No. 10 overall in April while also bringing in a new left guard and center. But Warmack will see plenty of the defensive end Sunday when Tennessee (1-0) visits Houston (1-0).

The rookie said Wednesday he's studying Watt on tape and sees someone who uses his long arms and body well.

Being drafted to protect against Watt is a big honor to Warmack who says he likes the challenge.
