Quick Hits on the Titans From Thursday of Chiefs Week


NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Thursday at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park to continue preparations for Sunday's game against the Chiefs at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

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

-Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who was limited in Wednesday's session, did not practice on Thursday.

Tannehill, who missed the Houston game, was spotted in the locker room with his right ankle taped.

Offensive coordinator Todd Downing was asked on Thursday how Tannehill responded to his work on Wednesday.

Here's the clip of his answer:

-Titans back-up quarterback Malik Willis, who stepped in for the injured Tannehill and made his first career start against the Texans, continues to get extra work in practices.

-Titans running back Derrick Henry, limited in Wednesday's practice, did not practice on Thursday.

Henry was listed on Wednesday's report with a foot, but was listed as NIR (Not Injury Related)-Rest on Thursday's report.

Henry talked to reporters before the team practiced today, and eased concerns about his ankle.

"My foot is fine, there's nothing wrong," Henry said. "I'll be out there on Sunday playing. My foot is fine – there is nothing to panic about. Everybody has a great Thursday. There's nothing wrong with my foot – right or left. My foot is fine."

-Titans cornerback Elijah Molden practiced for the second straight day on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the team designated Elijah Molden to return to practice from the team's Injured Reserve list.

The move opened his 21-day window to be activated.

-Titans safety Amani Hooker, who suffered a shoulder injury on Sunday, did not practice again on Thursday.

-Titans fullback Tory Carter (neck), inactive the last two games, did not practice again on Thursday.

-Titans defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons (ankle) did not practice again on Thursday.

-Titans defensive tackle Naquan Jones (illness) did not practice again on Thursday.

-Titans offensive lineman Aaron Brewer (foot), limited in Wednesday's practice, practiced on Thursday.

-Titans defensive lineman Sam Okuayinonu (knee), limited in Wednesday's practice, practiced in full on Thursday.

-Titans defensive lineman Kevin Strong (ankle), limited in Wednesday's practice, practiced on a limited basis again on Thursday.

-Titans outside linebacker Rashad Weaver (back) practiced for the second straight day on Thursday in full. Weaver missed Sunday's game at Houston.

-Titans defensive lineman Teair Tart was added to the Injury Report with a hamstring injury, and listed as limited.

-Titans guard Nate Davis was added to the Injury Report and listed as limited, with a designation as "Not Injury Related."

-Tight end Antony Auclair, signed to the team's practice squad earlier in the week, practiced with the team for the second time. Auclair has been assigned No. 84, but he's wearing No.87 this week to act as Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce on the scout team.

-The Chiefs released their second Injury Report on Thursday, and it looked like this: TE Jody Fortson (quad/illness) did not practice. LB Willie Gay (hamstring), DE Mike Danna (calf), WR Mecole Hardman (heel), CB Trent McDuffie (hamstring), RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) and DT Derrick Nnadi (Achilles) and OL Prince Tega Wanogho (rib) were all full participants.

-The Titans are scheduled to practice again on Friday before holding a walkthrough on Saturday before traveling to Kansas City for Sunday's game vs the Chiefs.
