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

On Sunday, the team will face the Cleveland Browns.

Three quick hits after today's practice:

McCourty milestone

Titans cornerback Jason McCourty will notch his 100th career game on Sunday.

A sixth-round draft pick by the Titans in the 2009 NFL Draft, McCourty will become the 14th player for the franchise to appear in 100 regular season games since the franchise became the Titans. He'll be the first cornerback to join the group.

"I've never really paid attention to stuff like that, but I guess that means they've kept me around here long enough to see 100,'' McCourty said with a smile. "Maybe one day I'll look back and think about it, but right now I am more concerned with the here and now, and finding a way to beat the Browns."

McCourty, who has interceptions in back-to-back weeks, missed 11 games last season because of a sports hernia.

At 29 years of age, he said he's feeling great.

"This is the best I've felt probably since 2014,'' McCourty sad. "So I am excited and I honestly feel like we have something good going here and I am happy to be a part of it."

Craig Hentrich tops the list of most regular season games played in the "Titans era" with 161. Keith Bulluck (157), Michael Roos (148), Rob Bironas (144) and Michael Griffin (141) round out the top five.

Searcy back

Titans safety Da'Norris Searcy returned to practice earlier this week and will be a go for Sunday.

Searcy missed the last two games with a high ankle sprain.

"I am glad to be back and able to compete,'' said Searcy, who posted 16 tackles in the first three games. "I had good days back-to-back, no soreness or anything. I have gotten stronger every day and trusted the treatment. The trainers did a good job of getting me back (so soon)."

Searcy said the Titans need to make Nissan Stadium a tough place to play again.

"I remember growing up, my mom being from Chattanooga, she was always a Tennessee Titans fan,'' Searcy said. "I remember we used to watch the games on TV and the stadium used to be rocking. I would love for it to be back like that."

Injuries

Defensive lineman Al Woods (calf) did not practice again on Friday and has been ruled out for Sunday's game.

Cornerback Cody Riggs (hamstring) practiced again Friday, but is questionable for Sunday's game, per coach Mike Mularkey.

Left tackle Taylor Lewan (shoulder) practiced and is expected to play.
