TITANS HEAD COACH MIKE MULARKEY MEDIA AVAILABILITY - Oct. 21, 2016
(on if the team is healthy going into Sunday's game against the Colts)
(on if in-game rotations have contributed to the team's health)*
I think the way we've done things since April have helped contribute to that. The way we practice, the way we train, the way Steve Waterson and Todd (Toriscelli) take care of these guys, the way we have been harping on recovering, taking care of your body, not just here but off the field—all of it has played a factor. It's been since day one we have been emphasizing (that).
(on having to designate seven healthy players as inactive)
That's a good problem. You never want to do that anyhow, but that's the way of the league and what they want to do. We'll make that decision still on Sunday.
(on how Al Woods practiced this week)
Al (Woods) was flying around. Yeah, I really liked the way Al (practiced)—a lot of energy, even today. For a big man, he can move and he's moving around well.
(on the benefit of having Al Woods back)*
It will be good because I think one of the plans this team is going to have coming in here is to try run the football. I like big bodies up in there stuffing the gaps. It will be good to have Al (Woods) back.
(on how Phillip Supernaw has performed this season)
Well, obviously, he's had to step up a little bit with the retirement of Craig (Stevens), so he's played more of that role—playing that point guy blocking the bigger defensive ends. I give him credit. He's done a good job for us in the run game. He's got great effort. He's another guy that's got great energy that plays every down like it's his last, whether it's offense or special teams.
(on Phillip Supernaw's reduction in penalties)
He's trying, yeah. I mean, he's an aggressive player. He's just got to make smarter decisions. He's been doing that this year compared to last year.
(on the alumni returning for homecoming weekend)*
That will be nice. I know they're going to come out. I think they're scheduled to come to practice tomorrow, so it will be good to have them interact with our guys, and I welcome them back. They've earned the right to be here and have a weekend for them. Hopefully, we can put on a good show for them and get a win for them.
(on Southeast Missouri State practicing at the facility on Friday)
Just a chance to get a workout in before they play. I'm glad we can provide the bubble.
(on what he will tell the team before Sunday's game)
That's between me and these guys. I've got a plan. I always do. They'll be ready to play.
