Three Quick Hits from Friday's Practice


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans just wrapped up practice on Friday at Saint Thomas Sports Park.
On Sunday, the team will face the Houston Texans.

Three quick hits after today's practice:


Walker's status

Titans tight end Delanie Walker practiced on Friday, and believes his chances of playing on Sunday are improving.

He's questionable against the Texans.

"I feel like I have an opportunity to play this week,'' said Walker, who missed last Sunday's game with a hamstring injury. "We'll see how it feels tomorrow. Today I did a lot of running."

Tight end Jace Amaro played in place of Walker, a Pro Bowler last season, against the Raiders.

Walker said he wants to return and provide a boost to his team, and a position group that also includes Anthony Fasano and Phillip Supernaw.

"My mindset is every time I get the ball I think it motivates our team and sparks something,'" Walker said. "When I'm out there it gives us more opportunity to make plays."

Walker didn't practice last Friday leading up to being inactive against the Raiders.

Wright a go, and other injuries

Titans receiver Kendall Wright was a full participant in Friday's practice and is set to return to action on Sunday.

Wright has missed the first three games this season with a hamstring injury. He missed the final game of the 2015 season with an injury as well. Wright, who last played on Dec. 27 of last season against the Texans, said he's anxious to rejoin his teammates.

"I am just happy to be out there,'' Wright said. "I missed (playing) a lot. … But that will all change this Sunday."

Safety Da'Norris Searcy (ankle) and cornerback Cody Riggs (hamstring) have been ruled out for Sunday's game.

Receiver Tajae Sharpe (hamstring) practiced again Friday and is expected to play. Guard Quinton Spain (knee) was also a full participant. Linebacker Nate Palmer (knee) did not practice.

25 Most Beautiful**

Nashville Lifestyles magazine tabbed Titans linebacker Avery Williamson as one of Nashville's 25 most beautiful people. Williamson will be featured in the October edition of the magazine.

On Thursday night, Williamson attended a party for the unveiling.

"How about that?,'' Williamson said with a smile. "I am pretty excited about it. I don't know how I got on there, somebody got me on there. But it's pretty cool, huh?"

Word has already started to spread in the locker room, and Williamson has been subject to some good-natured kidding.

Defensive lineman Jurrell Casey has been calling him "Top 25."

"We've been joking with him about it,'' linebacker Wesley Woodyard said. "We haven't really got him completely yet, but it's going to be coming."

"Congratulations to him,'' Walker said. "I don't know too much about that stuff, but if he got voted, that's great. He was probably the only nominee in this locker room, though. But that's great for Avery. It's probably going to bring a lot of attention to Avery, so he better be ready for that." looks back at the all-time series against the Houston Texans.
