Three Quick Hits from Tuesday's Practice


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans just wrapped up practice on Tuesday at St. Thomas Sports Park.

On Thursday, the team will play its final preseason game against the Vikings.

Three quick hits from today's practice:


Slow going**

Titans defensive lineman Sammie Hill is frustrated.

After missing time earlier in camp with a knee injury, Hill has now been sidelined again with a separate knee injury. He suffered the latest setback while warming up for Friday's game vs. the Chiefs.

"My frustration is at an all-time high,'' Hill said. "I just have to keep working. I want to get out of the training room and get out on the field with the guys."

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said the Titans are considering options, and Hill said he's hoping to avoid any type of medical procedure.

Hill started 15 games for the Titans last season and posted 47 tackles and three sacks.

Lineup plans

Whisenhunt still isn't ready to say whether quarterback Marcus Mariota will suit up for Thursday's game against the Vikings.

He said he expected to make a decision in the next 24 hours.

The head coach also wouldn't commit to his offensive line moving forward. Byron Bell started at left guard against the Chiefs, while rookie Jeremiah Poutasi worked with the starters at right tackle.

"I think there's great value for our players to prepare like they're playing. I think you defeat the purpose of what you are trying to accomplish if you tell somebody he is not playing,'' Whisenhunt said. "We are not at that point (where we're ready to decide) yet."

Who didn't practice

Running back David Cobb (calf), cornerback Jason McCourty (groin), linebacker Zaviar Gooden (hamstring) and Hill did not practice on Tuesday because of injuries.

Receiver Justin Hunter was excused for the second straight day, but he's expected to play on Thursday vs. the Vikings.

Tackle Taylor Lewan (soreness) and fullback Zac Boren (sick) returned to practice.

Whisenhunt said Wreh-Wilson is still on track to play on Thursday.
