Quick Hits on the Titans From Wednesday of Colts Week


NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Wednesday to continue preparations for Sunday's game against the Colts in Indianapolis.

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

-Titans edge rusher Trevis Gipson made the most of his opportunity in Sunday's game vs the Bengals.

Gipson, signed by the Titans back in August after playing previously with the Bears, notched a strip sack of quarterback Joe Burrow while playing just three defensive snaps.

It was Gipson's first action since Week One after being inactive two straight weeks.

"It felt pretty good," Gipson said on Wednesday. "I've been working hard, trying to get acclimated to the team, trying to show everybody what I could do off the field as far as weight room, workout, studying wise.

"But it felt good to be able to make that play, and show the team that I can help. It was encouraging, very encouraging. Because I want to prove them right and show that I can help the team. No matter (how many) snaps or opportunities I get, I am going to go out there and give it my all."

Earlier in the week, Titans Coach Mike Vrabel said Gipson earned more opportunities with his play on Sunday.

-It was an eventful day at practice on Wednesday, as three players – tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere, guard Peter Skoronski, and receiver Kyle Philips – returned from absences.

I did a separate story on the three: CLICK HERE.

Here's a look at the Injury Report from Wednesday:

-Receiver Treylon Burks (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

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

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

-Defensive back Elijah Molden (hamstring), who missed Sunday's game vs the Bengals, was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

-Tight end Josh Whyle (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

-Guard Peter Skoronski, who has missed the past three games after having an emergency appendectomy, was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

-Tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere, whose four game NFL suspension has been lifted, was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

-Receiver Kyle Philips, placed on the team's 'Designated for Return' list earlier in the week, was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

The designation opened up a three-week window for Philips to practice with the team, and he will not count against the team's 53-man roster until being activated from Injured Reserve.

-Receiver DeAndre Hopkins is no longer on the team's Injury Report. It's the first time since he injured his ankle in the season opener at New Orleans.

-The Colts released their initial Injury Report on Wednesday, and it looked like this: TE Mo Alie-Cox (ankle), DT DeForest Buckner (back), LB Shaquille Leonard (groin), DE Tyquan Lewis (knee), G Quenten Nelson (toe), DE Kwity Paye (concussion), T Bernhard Raimann (concussion) did not practice. C Ryan Kelly (concussion) and RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) were full participants.

-The Titans are scheduled to practice again on Thursday and Friday before holding a walk-through on Saturday morning. The team will travel to Indianapolis on Saturday for Sunday's game against the Colts.
