NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Friday to continue preparations for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Here's a look at the developments of the day, in quick-hitting fashion …

Titans Coach Mike Vrabel announced the news at the end of today's practice.
Burks played in the team's first three games after working his way back from a knee injury he suffered during practices in Minnesota last month, but he's appeared on the team's injury reports since.
"Not a reaggravation," Vrabel said of Burks. "Just not going to be able to be out there for a week or so. We'll see how that progresses. He wasn't able to do anything this week, and we'll see where he's at next week."
