NASHVILLE, Tenn. –** The Titans just wrapped up practice on Monday at Saint Thomas Sports Park.
On Sunday, the team will face the Ravens at Nissan Stadium.
Three quick hits:
Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota played through a hamstring injury in his last two starts.
He was clearly limited in wins over the Colts and Browns.
As the Titans returned from the bye week – nearly a month after Mariota initially injured the hamstring in Houston on October 1 – coach Mike Mularkey spoke with optimism about his quarterback.
"I think Marcus is back to where we need him to be to play at the same level he did before the injury," Mularkey said.
When asked if that was 100 percent, Mularkey replied: "I would think so. I would think that, yeah."
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was knocked out of the team's last game on Thursday with a concussion.
Back-up quarterback Ryan Mallett replaced Flacco against the Dolphins.
Mularkey said the Titans will keep an eye on the injury report out of Baltimore this week. The first injury report for Sunday's game won't be available until Wednesday, however.
"I saw the hit," Mularkey said. "They've had extra time as well – they haven't had the week like we've had, but they've had extra time to get him back off the concussion protocol. But we'll be ready for both quarterbacks."
Tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) did not practice on Monday.
"With an extra day, we wanted to give him some time," Mularkey said of Walker.
Running back DeMarco Murray (hamstring, shoulder) and safety Johnathan Cyprien (hamstring) were limited in practice, along with receiver Corey Davis (hamstring).
Guard Quinton Spain (turf toe) did not practice, and Mularkey wasn't as optimistic when talking about his chances of playing vs. the Ravens. Brian Schwenke would start in Spain's place.
"We're hoping that he'll be back," Mularkey said about Spain, "but I would not think he's going to play, today, but it's his body. You know me, everybody's different."
