NASHVILLE, Tenn. —The Titans just wrapped up practice on Thursday at St. Thomas Sports Park.
On Sunday, the team will face the Texans.
Three quick hits after today's practice…
Warmack vs. Watt**
Titans guard Chance Warmack has played against the Houston Texans four times in his NFL career.
So at this point, he's pretty familiar with Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt, two-time Defensive Player of the Year in the NFL.
"He is doing the same thing (this year) that he has being doing,'' Warmack said of Watt. "He is making plays, and doing his job."
Watt has six sacks on the season. He's recorded 63 sacks in his career.
Warmack said his focus when facing Watt is on his job instead of worrying about what's on the other side of the line of scrimmage. He's watched a lot of film of Watt over the years.
"He is by far still definitely a threat, a great player,'' Warmack said of Watt. "You can't sleep on him."
Reason to Celebrate**
Linebacker David Bass made a highlight-reel play in Sunday's game against the Falcons, and his text messages were "off the chains" as a result. He ended up getting roughly 50, he said.
Bass deflected a Matt Ryan pass against the Falcons, and ended up intercepting it. It led to a touchdown for the offense.
Bass, who joined the Titans prior to the season after playing previously with the Bears, had a pick-6 during his rookie year while playing against the Ravens.
The Titans had two interceptions on Sunday – the other belonged to linebacker Avery Williamson, whose INT came in the end zone.
So who had the better pick?
"His,'' Bass said of Williamson. "Avery's came on fourth down, and it kept them out of the end zone."
Cornerback Perrish Cox (hamstring), receiver Harry Douglas (ribs) and center Andy Gallik (concussion) did not practice on Thursday.
Cornerback Jason McCourty (hamstring) and quarterback Marcus Mariota (knee) were limited, while safety Michael Griffin (knee) and defensive tackle Sammie Hill were listed as full participants on the team's injury report.
