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 Colts.

Three quick hits after today's practice:


Fast start**

Titans linebacker Derrick Morgan already has three sacks this season, and six sacks in the past five games dating back to last season.

The success has made Morgan, who had 6.5 sacks last season, even hungrier.

"You have to stay motivated, and personally when you have some success, you definitely want to build on that," Morgan said. "It's the same way as a team...It gives you some motivation, but the most important thing is to have that overall success that we so desperately need."

On Sunday, the Titans face Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who is 6-0 in his career against Tennessee.

Morgan, in his sixth NFL season, has experienced just one win over the Colts in his career.

"I hate losing to them, because we haven't won against them,'' Morgan said. "We feel like we can definitely play with them, and we are coming with our best shot on Sunday. We have to win this game because we can't be the old Titans where we look back at this season and say, "We let that one slip."

"They are 0 and 2, and we are 1-1. We have to take this game. It is a pivotal game for us."


Filling in**

With guard Chance Warmack out for Sunday's game, Jamon Meredith is the next man up at right guard for the Titans.

On Thursday, Meredith gave reporters a hard time when they approached him at his locker.

"You guys don't even know who I am,'' he said. "You guys never talk to me. I haven't talked to you guys in about three months."

Meredith, in his seventh NFL season, has started 27 games in his career, including 12 at right guard.

He said he feels good, and prepared. Meredith played in four games with the Colts last season.

"I'll be ready'' he said.
