NASHVILLE, Tenn. —The Titans just wrapped up practice on Thursday at St. Thomas Sports Park, the second one under interim head coach Mike Mularkey.
On Sunday, the team will face the Saints.
Three quick hits after today's practice…
Mariota on track**
Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota remains on track to start Sunday.
Mariota practiced fully for the second straight day and while Mularkey wasn't ready to name him the starter for Sunday's game, everything is positive at this point.
Mariota has missed the last two games with a sprained MCL.
"Our competitive drill today was two-minute and he had a pretty live rush at him," Mularkey said of Mariota. "I thought he did a good job stepping up in the pocket and moving around the pocket, getting out of the pocket when he had to, so that was good to see. So I think he's progressing and we'll move a little further tomorrow."
Running back David Cobb continues to practice with the team.
But Mularkey indicated Cobb likely won't be elevated to the 53-man roster until next week.
Cobb has been practicing for several weeks during the evaluation window. He was placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list before the regular season as he dealt with a calf injury.
"He is running pretty well,'' Mularkey said of Cobb. "It's more likely next week. With (other injuries), there may be some other areas we have to address before we worry about (Cobb)."
Receiver Kendall Wright (knee) missed practice on Thursday, and Mularkey has already ruled him out for Sunday's game.
"He's walking the hallways better,'' Mularkey said of Wright. "He's living in the training room, but he is obviously out for the week."
Cornerback Jason McCourty (groin) and cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson (hamstring) also missed practice again Thursday and their status remains uncertain for Sunday. Mularkey said the two "are progressing." In addition to Mariota, cornerback Perrish Cox (hamstring) and receiver Harry Douglas (ribs) was listed as a full participant in today's practice.
