NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans just wrapped up practice on Friday at Saint Thomas Sports Park.

On Sunday, the team will face the Miami Dolphins.

Three quick hits after today's practice:

**

Cox's start**

Titans cornerback Perrish Cox made his 2016 debut against the Dolphins in the preseason. After missing the first three games because of an ankle injury, he returned and saw limited action.

On Sunday, he'll return to Miami Gardens when the Titans face the Dolphins.

Cox has 12 tackles and team-best two interceptions in the first four games.

"I know I have to tackle better, that is one thing that I know for a fact that I can improve on,'' Cox said. "But other than that, defensive-wise we are playing good, but there is always room for improvement."

On Sunday, the Titans will face a speedy group of receivers in Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker and Jarvis Landry.

"It's the same thing every week,'' Cox said. "Me and J-Mac (Jason McCourty) always have to take on the best part of the other team's offense, and we talk to each other all the time about what we have to do to help the team win. We have another group to deal with, and a good quarterback (in Ryan Tannehill). As long as we keep doing what we are doing, and making improvement every week, I think we'll be good."

**

Sunday in Miami**

Plans were finalized on Friday to keep the Titans-Dolphins game at the same date and time as initially scheduled.

The league made the decision after examining Hard Rock Stadium after Hurricane Matthew made its way through South Florida late Thursday.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said playing the game on Monday in Miami or possibly Sunday or Monday in Nashville were among the possibilities discussed. The Dolphins officially announced today the game will remain at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, as scheduled.

Injuries

Safety Da'Norris Searcy (ankle), cornerback Cody Riggs (hamstring) and defensive lineman Al Woods (calf) did not practice on Friday, and they've been ruled out for Sunday.

Tackle Jack Conklin (shoulder) and tight end Jace Amaro (shoulder) remain on the injury report, but they're expected to be available. Both players participated in Friday's practice.
