Quick Hits on the Titans From Wednesday of Broncos Week


NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Wednesday at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park to ramp up preparations for Sunday's game vs the Denver Broncos at Nissan Stadium.

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

-Receiver Treylon Burks was back on the practice field on Wednesday, and that was a welcome sight.

"Definitely happy to be back," Burks said. "Back in the locker room with my teammates, the coaches. It's just a good feeling. … I feel great."

Earlier on Wednesday, the Titans designated Burks to return to practice from the team's Injured Reserve list.

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

A first-round draft pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Burks was placed on Injured Reserve on October 8 after suffering a foot/toe injury in the team's October 2 game at the Colts.

Burks said he feels like he has a good chance to return to action on Sunday.

"That's the plan," said Burks, who caught 10 passes for 129 yards, with a long of 27, in four games prior to the injury. "We're going to see how this week goes, work hard, and let God take care of the rest."

-Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who has missed the last two games with an ankle injury, was back on the practice field on Wednesday. He was listed as limited on the Injury Report.

Here's a look at Tannehill in practice:

-Titans cornerback Elijah Molden practiced again on Wednesday as well.

Last week, the team designated Molden to return to practice from the team's Injured Reserve list.

Molden said he was disappointed he wasn't called up last week, but he said he's more optimistic this week.
