TITANS HEAD COACH MIKE MULARKEY MEDIA AVAILABILITY - Dec. 22, 2016

(on practice participation)

Jason McCourty did not practice today. He's the only one.

(on if Jason McCourty will be out for the game)

Tomorrow, you'll get that from Robbie (Bohren) after the walkthrough.

(on if Derrick Morgan took a positive step in returning to practice on Thursday)

Yeah, it was good to see him out here moving around.

(on Derrick Morgan's status for the game)

I'll give you all that information tomorrow after the walkthrough.

(on how comfortable he feels with the secondary if Jason McCourty is not able to play)

I'm very confident in our secondary. You know, basically, Jason (McCourty) was out the whole game last week. I mean, he got hurt the second play of the game. Those guys had to step up against very good receivers, so I'm confident. Our whole team is confident in our guys.

(on how much the Titans can take from the last game and the fast start against the Jaguars)

Every game, I've said it, every game in the NFL that I've ever been a part of has been a different game. You can't expect anything to be the same once the ball is kicked off. Obviously, that would be something that would be outstanding to happen. We certainly try to make that happen, but I can't promise it can happen.

(on if having a fast start will allow the Titans to control the game)

I'd like that, just because we didn't do that this past week and we need to that in all these games. I mean, these are important games, every game, regardless of what records are of our opponents. Fast starts are important at this time of year.

(on facing a dangerous returner in Marqise Lee)

Yes, we've got to do a good job on our cover teams. It's been talked about since day one.
