NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Friday to put the finishing touches on preparations for Sunday's game vs the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium.
Some quick hits on the Titans after Friday's session:
-After a half-foot of snow in Nashville on Thursday, the Titans practiced inside the team's indoor practice facility at Saint Thomas Sports Park for the second day in a row. The session was closed to media, and all interviews were done via Zoom.
-Running back Derrick Henry, moved to the team's 'Designated for Return from Injured Reserve" list earlier in the week, practiced throughout the week.
This designation opened up a 21-day window for Henry to practice with the team, and he will not count against the team's 53-man roster until being activated from Injured Reserve.
The Titans have until Saturday to decide whether to activate Henry for Sunday's game in Houston.
Henry suffered a foot injury in the team's October 31 game vs the Colts, and he's missed the last eight games.
Titans coach Mike Vrabel said he was encouraged by Henry's work during the week.
"We have some time to make that decision, and we'll evaluate where we are at," Vrabel said. "I think that (Derrick) looked good. We continue to track his speed and mileage and volume and see how he responds. Two days on the turf, we'll see where he is at tomorrow and see how he responds.
"But I feel good about where he is at."
Henry does not appear on the Injury Report because he is not on the team's active roster.
