Three Quick Hits from Thursday's Practice


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

On Sunday, the team will face the Browns.

Three quick hits after today's practice


Return home**

Titans running back Bishop Sankey was born in Wadsworth, Ohio in a household full of Cleveland Browns fans.

In fact, his first NFL game was at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland when he was in the sixth grade.

"I'll have about 30 family members there (on Sunday), and family friends,'' Sankey said. "So it will be fun. It will be good seeing them, and extra motivation. It will be cool having an opportunity to play there."

Sankey got off to a nice start in Week 1. The second-year running back ran for 74 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries, and he also caught a 12-yard touchdown pass.

Sankey hopes to keep it going on Sunday.

"I was happy with (the game) last week, and now we're going to try and build off it,'' Sankey said. "I just want to help in any way I can."


Defensive plan**

Titans defensive coordinator Ray Horton said the team is preparing for both of Cleveland's quarterbacks on Sunday – Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel.

McCown missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday, and Manziel took the first-team reps in practices. McCown is in the concussion protocol, and he's expected to be evaluated on Friday.

"We're preparing for all three quarterbacks really, whether it's Austin Davis, whether it's McCown or Johnny Manziel,'' Horton said. "We don't know (who is going to play), so we just prepare our brand of football. They'll put somebody back there at center and we'll be ready to roll."

Injury update

Tight end Delanie Walker (hand), running back Antonio Andrews (hamstring), defensive lineman Sammie Hill (knee), cornerback Jason McCourty (groin) and cornerback Cody Riggs (knee) didn't practice.
