Three Quick Hits from Thursday's Practice


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

On Sunday, the team will travel to Cleveland to face the Browns.

Three quick hits:

Mariota Update

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was a full participant in practice for the second straight day, and he's had no setbacks in his recovery from a hamstring injury.

Mariota played on Monday against the Colts after being limited in practices last week.

The Titans are hoping he'll be able to do more from a mobility standpoint against the Browns.

"He had a real good day," coach Mike Mularkey said. "He did a lot of good things, and is moving around better than he has."

Mariota completed 23-of-32 passes for 306 yards and a touchdown against the Colts. He responded well to adversity, and made some big throws in the second half as the Titans rallied. He had a big one-yard gain on a quarterback sneak on a fourth-and-one, but he was clearly limited outside the pocket.

Murray, other injuries

Running back DeMarco Murray (hamstring) did not practice again on Thursday, and remains day to day.

"He was going to get some individual (work), but we decided it was probably better to give him another day, and hopefully get more out of him tomorrow," Mularkey said of Murray. "So that was the plan."

Tight end Delanie Walker was limited on Thursday with a calf injury. Linebacker Derrick Morgan (abdominal strain) was also limited after missing Wednesday's work.

Receiver Corey Davis (hamstring) and safety Johnathan Cyprien (hamstring) also did not practice. Mularkey indicated earlier in the week he doesn't expect either to play vs. the Browns.

Lewan on No.1 pick

On Sunday, the Titans offensive line will face Browns rookie defensive end Myles Garrett, the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

Garrett, who starred at Texas A&M, has three sacks in two games since returning from an ankle injury that kept him sidelined for the first four games of the season. He's lined up in several spots on the defensive line.

"The guy's a (heck) of a player, let's be honest," Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan said. "He's the No. 1 overall pick for a reason.

"Well, the guy's got a good first step. He's a strong guy. He's fast. He's got all the accolades, as far as combine measurables. The guy really checks off every box. He's fast. He's good with his hands. He's got great power. He's shown a good spin move in the past, so he's got three ways of attacking a tackle. So it's just about going out there and playing football consistently the way I have been all season."
