Three Quick Hits from Thursday's Practice


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

On Sunday, the team will face the Raiders.

Three quick hits after today's practice:


On Wright Track**

Titans receiver Kendall Wright practiced for the second day in a row, and he's set to play after missing the last three games with a knee injury.

"I think he's good to go, I really do,'' interim coach Mike Mularkey said of Wright. "He had more reps today and I saw him do some things, so I feel good about him."

The Titans have missed Wright, who is second on the team with 28 catches for 343 yards and three touchdowns. The Titans have scored just two touchdowns in the last two games, both on running plays.

The Titans haven't scored on a touchdown pass since November 8 in New Orleans, when quarterback Marcus Marioat threw four touchdown passes.

Wright said he's hoping to provide a spark. He was listed as a full participant on today's practice report.

"I am just happy to be back out there, doing what I love to do. I am hoping to make some plays,'' Wright said. "I am going to step in and do what they ask me to do. I haven't been out there in a while, and I want to go out there and make plays to contribute to the offense when I'm out there."

Turkey Day

Just like every other day, the Titans gathered in the middle of the practice field at the end of Thursday's practice.

Only they ended the session with a prayer, and some different words before breaking: "Gobble, gobble."

Mularkey said the team had a spirited practice, which included music from Bell Biv DeVoe from the speakers beforehand.

"I just told them, it's an easy day to be distracted with a lot going on, family and friends in town, where they're going to eat, what they're going to eat,'' Mularkey said. "I thought we accomplished what we wanted to do.

"We have fast Fridays. Today was Thanksgiving Thursday, and it was about the Ts – tempo, timing, tough-minded. I thought we got what we wanted."

Injury Report

Running back Dexter McCluster (knee), defensive lineman Al Woods (ankle) and linebacker Derrick Morgan did not practice on Thursday.

Defensive lineman Sammie Hill (knee) returned to the practice field after missing Wednesday, but he was listed as limited on the Injury Report.

Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson (hamstring), who missed last week's game, also practiced fully.
