Quick Hits on the Titans From Friday of Raiders Week


NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Friday at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park to continue preparations for Sunday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders at Nissan Stadium.

Here's a look at some Titans topics in quick-hitting fashion:

-Titans safety Kevin Byard will play in his 100th career game on Sunday.

Byard, drafted in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, has not missed a game in his career and has started each of the past 90 contests.

"I have been blessed that I have been able to stay healthy for the entirety of my career so far, and I hope to play another 100 games, honestly," Byard said. "It is definitely going to be a pretty cool deal to go out there for my 100th game and coming up soon I will have my 100th start. So, it's pretty awesome."

Byard's first game was against the Minnesota Vikings in 2016.

Since 2016, Byard is tied with Patriots DB Devin McCourty and Raiders DB Duron Harmon for most games played by defensive players over that time period.

"It has definitely flown by," Byard said. "I remember Da'Norris Searcy when he was here, when he was in year seven he was getting ready to play in his 100th game and I was talking to him about it and he said: 'Man, this this is going to fly by. You'll never know it.' But things fly by when you're having fun."

-Titans cornerback Kristian Fulton, inactive vs the Bills because of a hamstring injury, practiced again on Friday and he said after practice he's feeling good. He's expected to play on Sunday.

"I feel good," Fulton said. "The training camp has been helping me a lot – they haven't been trying to rush me back. They just want to make sure I feel good enough to go. I feel good. I've had a good week."

Fulton knows the challenge against the Raiders, and said the Titans DBs will be ready.

"Our mindset is we want to win every rep," Fulton said. "We feel like that's going to lead to us winning the game. We really need to get a win under our belts. We have to be locked in with our communication and our sets, and that is really our mindset."

-Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan (knee) did not practice again on Friday and he's been ruled OUT for Sunday's game.

Titans coach Mike Vrabel said the plan is for Dennis Daley to play left tackle on Sunday.

"He'll play left tackle for us – that's what it is," Vrabel said. "He filled in there (Monday vs Buffalo), got some more work this week so I am excited to see him go play."

-Titans outside linebacker Bud Dupree (hip) did not practice again on Friday and he's been ruled OUT for Sunday's game.

-Titans defensive back Ugo Amadi (ankle) did not practice again on Friday and he's been ruled OUT for Sunday's game.

-Titans outside linebacker Ola Adeniyi (neck) did not practice again on Friday and he's been ruled OUT for Sunday's game.

-Titans running back Dontrell Hilliard (hamstring), inactive vs the Bills, practiced again on Friday. He's good to go.

-The Titans added linebacker Zach Cunningham (knee) to the Injury Report on Thursday, and listed him as a limited participant. Cunningham did not practice on Friday and he is QUESTIONABLE for Sunday.

-Titans receiver Treylon Burks (ankle) practiced again on Friday and he's good to go.

-Titans receiver Kyle Philips (shoulder) practiced again on Friday, but on a limited basis, and he's DOUBTFUL for Sunday's game.

-Titans defensive lineman Denico Autry practiced again on Friday and he's good to go.

-Linebacker Joe Jones (hamstring) practiced again on Friday and he's good to go.

-The Raiders released their final Injury Report on Friday, and it looks like this: LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) and WR Hunter Renfrow (concussion) are OUT. C Andre James (concussion), S Tre'von Moehrig (hip), DT Bial Nichols (shoulder), DT Neil Farrell Jr. (shoulder) and RB Josh Jacobs (illness) are questionable. Jacobs was added to the injury report on Thursday, and he hasn't practiced since.

-The Titans are scheduled to hold a walkthrough on Saturday leading up to Sunday's game vs the Raiders.
