NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Wednesday at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park to continue preparations for Sunday's game vs the Atlanta Falcons at Nissan Stadium.
Here's a look at the developments of the day, in quick-hitting fashion …
-The biggest story of the day, of course, centers on the quarterback situation. Titans Coach Mike Vrabel reiterated on Wednesday the plan is for Will Levis and Malik Willis to both play vs the Falcons if Ryan Tannehill can't on Sunday. I talked to all three quarterbacks on Wednesday and did a separate story.

-It's been a whirlwind of a week for new Titans safety Terrell Edmunds.
On Sunday night, Edmunds played against the Dolphins as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. The next day he was traded to the Titans as part of the trade that sent Kevin Byard to the Eagles.
On Wednesday, Edmunds was on the practice field with his new Titans teammates.
"It has definitely been a lot – I'd be lying if I said it's not," Edmunds said on Wednesday. "But I am excited to come over here, hoping to help this team the best that I can … wherever they need me at."
A first-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2018 NFL Draft, Edmunds played from 2018-2022 with the Steelers before joining the Eagles this offseason.
Edmunds has 410 career tackles and five interceptions in six NFL seasons. Edmunds played in seven games for the Eagles in 2023, with two starts, and he's been credited with 28 tackles.
Edmunds, who made a pre-draft visit to the Titans prior to the 2018 NFL Draft, said he's not here to replace Byard.
"He's a great player," Edmunds said of Byard. "I'm not so much trying to fill his shoes or be him, but at the same time go out there and be myself. I want to be the best player that I can to help this team out."
-Titans lineman Nicholas Petit-Frere is now the starter at left tackle, Vrabel said this week.
Petit-Frere now aims to keep the job with this play.

-Titans cornerback Caleb Farley talked to reporters publicly for the first time since losing his father in a tragic house explosion back in August.
Farley, who remains on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list, said he's thankful for the support he's received from the organization.
Here's a clip of Farley from the locker room:
