There's cyanide underneath a site the Tennessee Oilers want for their practice field and facilities.

State officials say that's not a problem for the field, because clean soil was spread atop the former city dump.

"Two feet of soil should be plenty for playing football," said Tom Tiesler, director of the state's solid and hazardous waste division.

But it might be a concern if the Oilers build an office there, because foundations would have to be dug and that could stir up the cyanide and bring it to the surface.
