NASHVILLE – The Titans hit the practice field on Friday to wrap up on-field preparations for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Some quick hits on the latest developments …
-Receiver A.J. Brown (knee) returned to practice on Friday and after missing on Thursday, and he said on a video conference call today he's feeling good.
In fact, Brown said he feels as fast as he's ever been. Anyone who watched his speed on his 73-yard touchdown catch vs the Steelers would have a tough time arguing.
"I definitely feel faster (now), faster than I've ever been, more explosive than I've ever been," said Brown, who was once clocked at a 4.46 in college at Ole Miss. "I'm starting to get my wheels back coming off the knee injury."
-Outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (knee) returned to practice Friday after missing the first two days of the week and he's good to go for Sunday's game. He was a full participant Friday.
-Cornerback Kristian Fulton (knee) did not practice for the third straight day and he's been ruled out for Sunday.
-Cornerback Johnathan Joseph (illness) returned to practice (in full) after missing two days and he's good to go for Sunday.
-Tackle Dennis Kelly (knee) practiced on Friday after missing two straight days. On a Friday Zoom call, Kelly said he feels good and will play on Sunday. He was also a full participant.
-Defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons (not injury related) practiced and is good to go for Sunday. Simmons was on the Injury Report (not injury related) at the start of the week.
-Cornerback Tye Smith (shoulder) did not practice on Friday and he's listed as questionable for Sunday's game.
-Offensive lineman Daniel Munyer (hand) missed practice on Friday after being limited in practices earlier in the week and he's questionable for Sunday.
-Safety Dane Cruikshank (groin) didn't practice on Friday and he's been ruled out for Sunday's game.
-Cornerback Adoree' Jackson, who practiced the first two days of the week, did not practice on Friday. The Titans moved Jackson to the 'Designated for Return' list last week. This designation opened up a three-week window for Jackson to practice with the team, and he will not count against the team's 53-man roster until being activated from injured reserve.
On Friday, Titans coach Mike Vrabel said this when asked about Jackson not practicing: "It's just a decision that we made with the training staff about what would be best for Adoree' today."
-Titans rookie tackle Isaiah Wilson went through his first full week of practice this week. Wilson was limited in practices last week after coming off the COVID-19 list earlier in the month. Vrabel said Wilson just needs to continue making progress.
-Running back Senorise Perry, placed on the 'Designated for Return' list on Tuesday, practiced again on Friday.
-On their final Injury Report, the Bengals ruled out T Bobby Hart (knee), C Trey Hopkins (concussion), RB Joe Mixon (foot), and tackle T Jonah Williams (stinger). WR John Ross (illness) is listed as doubtful, while CB Darius Phillips (knee) is questionable.
-The Titans will travel around midday Saturday to Cincinnati for Sunday's game.
