NASHVILLE – The Titans were back on the practice field on Thursday to continue preparations for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Some quick hits on the latest developments …
-Because of the weather, today's session was moved inside the team's indoor practice facility. And because of that, the practice was closed to media. So sorry, no practice videos. But I did my best to piece together the events of the day by using the Injury Report.
-Receiver A.J. Brown, who did not play on Sunday because of a knee injury, missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday.
-Cornerback Malcolm Butler (quad), who missed practice on Wednesday, returned to practice on a limited basis on Thursday.
