Quick Hits on the Titans From Thursday of Colts 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 Indianapolis Colts at Nissan Stadium.

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

-As the Titans head into Oilers/Titans Homecoming weekend, running back Derrick Henry is tackling feats reached by two of the franchise's all-time greats.

Henry needs just one touchdown to tie Eddie George's franchise record for career touchdowns, and two to break it. George totaled 74 touchdowns during his career with the Titans (from 1996-2003). Henry is currently tied with Earl Campbell's mark of 73 career touchdowns.

"I watch Earl on NFL Network, NFL Films, when they show backs in the 80s – he was a beast," Henry said of Campbell. "He's a legend, so I'm very familiar with Earl."

Henry said he's always been a fan of George, now head coach at Tennessee State.

"It's always a dream come true," Henry said of being mentioned with Campbell and George. "As a kid, looking at the TV watching Eddie run, and like I said, watching Earl and the film on him. They are the epitome of this franchise at the running back position as far as how they played it, the physicality, the success they had.

"They're definitely two guys I looked up to and it's a dream come true to have my name associated with them."

-Titans linebacker Zach Cunningham, who suffered an elbow injury vs the Raiders and has missed the past two games, did not practice again on Thursday.

-Titans outside linebacker Bud Dupree (hip), who missed the Commanders game and played just nine plays vs the Colts before aggravating his hip injury, was back on the practice field again on Thursday. Dupree was listed as a full participant again on Thursday's Injury Report.

-Safety Amani Hooker (concussion) practiced in full once again on Thursday.

-Titans linebacker Joe Jones (hip), injured in the first game and Indianapolis before missing the game against the Commanders, did not practice again on Thursday.

-Titans guard Nate Davis, who missed the Washington game because of a foot injury, practiced again on Thursday. He was listed as limited once again on the Injury Report

-Titans fullback Tory Carter, who has been dealing with a neck injury, did not practice on Thursday after being limited in Wednesday's session while he wore a yellow caution jersey.

-Practice squad quarterback Logan Woodside was not spotted at Thursday's practice.

-Henry, along with OC Todd Downing and DC Shane Bowen, were decked out in t-shirts that pay tribute to those close to them who have dealt with cancer. It's part of the NFL's #CrucialCatch: Intercept Cancer initiative.

Here's a look at what they said on Thursday:

Henry also held up a t-shirt with a dog named "Tiny" on it. It's part of Mars Petcare's Adoption weekend.

With the help of the Titans, Mars Petcare is launching its largest shelter volunteer program ever called "Shelter Humans Needed."

To offer one way for people to help pets in need, Mars Petcare is partnering with the Tennessee Titans for the third year in a row in the company's 14th annual Adoption Weekend, which will cover up to $110K in adoption fees at shelters in Nashville and five more cities across the U.S. (Denver, Los Angeles, Newark, Vancouver, WA and Washington, D.C.) from October 21-23.

-The Colts released their second Injury Report of the week on Thursday and it looked like this: WR Keki Coutee (concussion) was limited in practice while CB Stephen Gilmore (not injury related), C Ryan Kelly (not injury related), and DE Yannick Ngakoue (not injury related) practiced in full, along with TE Kylen Granson (neck), LB Shaquille Leonard (concussion/nose/back), RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle), S Julian Blackmon (ankle), RB Nyheim Hines (concussion) and RB Deon Jacson (quad). DE Kwity Paye (ankle), LB JoJo Domann (abdomen) and DT Grover Stewart (rest) did not practice.

-The Titans are scheduled to practice again on Friday before holding a walkthrough on Saturday leading up to Sunday's game vs the Colts.
