LP Field, home of the Tennessee Titans, sustained "minor" damage after torrential weekend rains in Nashville caused the Cumberland River to flood over its banks and into the stadium, Titans senior executive vice president Steve Underwood said in a statement issued by the club on Tuesday. Also, Baptist Sports Park, the Titans' training facility located about five miles north of LP Field, had sustained no damage from flooding  as of Tuesday. LP Field, which is located on the east bank of the Cumberland River, took about two inches of ground water "in the majority of the service level spaces, but most of the water was diverted to the playing surface," Underwood said. The field was completely covered with water on Monday, but the waters have already receded. Insurance will cover damage caused by the flood, Underwood said. Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said Wednesday that estimates of Nashville's flood damage exceed $1 billion.
