NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Thursday at Saint Thomas Sports Park to continue preparations for Sunday's game at the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Some quick hits after Thursday's practice:

-Outside linebacker Bud Dupree, held out of the past two games with a knee injury, was back on the practice field on Thursday for Titans. Dupree was listed as a full participant after being limited on Wednesday.

Before practice, Dupree admitted when speaking to reporters he might've rushed himself back to soon. Now he's focused on getting healthy, and he feels like he's getting closer.

He didn't rule out the possibility of playing this Sunday, in fact.

"I rushed it and let my pride get in the way," Dupree said. "I should have waited a little longer, but I was so eager to get out on the field. I had to put my pride down and put my pride to the side and realize it was my choice. It was my mistake."

"I'm going to train as hard as I can because I need to get back on the field. I'm just trying to get back as quick as I can now. It's only week five. We've got 17 games. I need to make sure I'm ready for the stretch when this team really needs me. I want to make sure I can give it my all and not have any setbacks at all."

-Receiver A.J. Brown, who didn't play against the Jets because of a hamstring injury, practiced for the second straight day on Thursday. Brown was listed as a full participant after being limited on Wednesday.

-Receiver Julio Jones, who didn't play against the Jets because of a hamstring injury, didn't practice once again on Thursday.

-Left tackle Taylor Lewan, who left Sunday's game with an ankle injury but later returned, did not practice again on Thursday. Lewan is listed with a "toe" in the Injury Report. He also appeared on last week's report with the toe, but he started the contest against the Jets.

-Guard Rodger Saffold, who left Sunday's game because of concussion symptoms, was on the practice field again on Thursday, this time as a full participant. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said on Wednesday Saffold remains in the concussion protocol.
