Quick Hits on the Titans From Wednesday of Browns Week


NASHVILLE – The Titans hit the practice field on Wednesday to continue preparations for Sunday's game in Cleveland against the Browns.

Here's a look at the developments of the day, in quick-hitting fashion …

-Titans Coach Mike Vrabel said on Wednesday he doesn't anticipate left guard Peter Skoronski being available for Sunday's game after an abdominal procedure over the weekend.

Dillon Radunz played 53 snaps at left guard in Sunday's game against the Chargers, and he appears to be in line to start on Sunday in Cleveland.

"It's just another opportunity for me, and definitely have to take advantage of it," Radunz said. "I have to roll with it and just improve on the plays that I had when I was out there, and just continue to grow through this game."

Vrabel has been very complimentary of Radunz and his quick return from last year's ACL injury.

Radunz, a second-round pick of the team in the 2021 NFL Draft who has worked at guard and tackle during his time with the team, said he's feeling good.

"The strength is definitely there," Radunz said. "The cool thing I've noticed about ACL rehab, when you do it right, you are just so focused on all the minor details of your body, you focus on details that you normally wouldn't focus on during training.

"Honestly, I feel stronger than I was even before the ACL. I know everybody says that, but I think it's actually true."

-Safety Amani Hooker, who missed Sunday's game against the Chargers with a concussion, was back at practice on Wednesday. Hooker was listed as a full participant.

Vrabel said Hooker still hasn't cleared concussion protocol, however, and he'll still need to progress through the next steps this week. Hooker suffered a concussion in the season opener in New Orleans.

-Cornerback Kristian Fulton, who missed Sunday's game against the Chargers with a hamstring injury, was back at practice on Wednesday. Fulton was listed as a full participant.

-Skoronski, who missed Sunday's game against the Chargers, did not practice (abdomen).

-Defensive lineman Teair Tart (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

-Outside linebacker Harold Landry (hamstring) was on the field for the stretch period before going to a side field. Landry was listed as a limited participant.

-Defensive back Anthony Kendall (hip) did not practice on Wednesday.

-Linebacker Luke Gifford (quad) did not practice on Wednesday.

-Defensive lineman Denico Autry (foot) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

-Running back Derrick Henry (toe) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

-Receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who didn't practice all last week but played on Sunday against the Chargers, practiced on Wednesday. Hopkins still appears on the team's injury report with an ankle injury, but he practiced in full.

-The Titans added defensive lineman Kyle Peko to the team's 53-man roster on Tuesday.

Peko played in the first two games of the season as a standard elevation from the practice squad.

I chatted with Peko before today's practice.

-The Titans signed defensive lineman Jaleel Johnson to the practice squad on Wednesday.

Johnson (6-3, 316), assigned No. 94, spent time during the offseason through training camp this year. He is a veteran of six NFL seasons with Minnesota (2017-20), Houston (2021-22) and Atlanta (2022). Over his 74-game NFL career, he has logged 21 starts, 125 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 11 tackles for loss, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.

-The Browns release their initial Injury Report on Wednesday, and it looked like this: G Joey Bitonio (rest), WR Amari Cooper (groin/shoulder), DE Myles Garrett (rest), CB Greg Newsome (elbow) and DE Za'Darius Smith (ankle/thigh) did not practice on Wednesday. LB Stone Takitaki (shoulder), LB Anthony Walker (pectoral) and T Jedrick Wills (shoulder) were limited. DT Siaki Ika (foot) and S Juan Thornhill (calf) were full participants.

-The Titans are scheduled to practice again on Thursday and Friday of this week before holding a walk-through on Saturday morning. The team is scheduled to fly to Cleveland on Saturday afternoon for Sunday's game against the Browns.
