Quick Hits on the Titans After Friday's Practice


NASHVILLE – The Titans hit the practice field on Friday to continue preparations for Sunday's home opener against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Here's a look at the developments of the day, in quick-hitting fashion …

-Titans receiver DeAndre Hopkins missed his third straight practice on Friday because of the ankle injury he suffered on Sunday in New Orleans.

Hopkins is listed as QUESTIONABLE on the team's final Injury Report.

Hopkins said in the locker room on Friday he's feeling good, and "it's a process to get my body prepared for whatever is next."

Hopkins caught six passes for 65 yards in the opener before suffering the injury on the team's last offensive snap.

Hopkins said he's working to get healthy.

"Just trying to get my body ready to go, if I am up on Sunday," Hopkins said. "And that's really kind of a day-to-day process. … We'll see (what happens). I'll be prepared if my number is up, I hope."

-Titans safety Amani Hooker has been ruled OUT for Sunday's game.

Hooker remains in the team's concussion protocol, and he didn't practice again on Friday.

Earlier in the week, Titans Coach Mike Vrabel named Elijah Molden, Matt Jackson and Mike Brown among the options opposite Kevin Byard at the safety position, along with Shyheim Carter, who is on practice squad.

-Cornerback Kristian Fulton has also been ruled OUT for Sunday's game after being limited in practices all week with a hamstring injury.

-Receiver Treylon Burks, excused from practice on Wednesday for personal reasons, was back at practice again on Friday. He's good to go.

-Running back Tajae Spears (groin) practiced again on Friday. He's good to go.

-Guard Peter Skoronski was not at practice on Friday and he's listed as QUESTIONABLE on the team's Injury Report with an illness.

-Defensive lineman Teair Tart (groin), limited in practices on Wednesday and Thursday, was back on the practice field on Friday and listed as a full participant on the team's Injury Report.

-Cornerback Tre Avery (hamstring) practiced again on Friday. He's good to go.

-Offensive lineman Dillon Radunz (knee) practiced again on Friday. He's good to go.

Vrabel said the plan is for Radunz to return to action on Sunday for the first time since his ACL injury last year.

"I think Dillon will play in the game, so that'll be great," Vrabel said. "That's a testament to him and how hard he worked and the process here to get him back and get him ready to go. He feels comfortable and confident. So excited to have him with us this weekend."

Radunz spoke to reporters after Friday's practice.

-The Chargers released the final Injury Report on Friday, and it looked like this: OLB Joey Bosa (hamstring) is QUESTIONABLE. Running back Austin Ekeler (ankle), LB Eric Kendricks (hamstring/personal), LB Daiyan Henley (hamstring) and OLB Chris Rumph (hamstring) are DOUBTFUL.

-The Titans will hold a walk-through on Saturday ahead of Sunday's noon game at Nissan Stadium.
