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

On Sunday, the team will face the Colts.

Three quick hits after today's practice:

McCourty was listed as limited in practice.

"It was good to get back out there with the guys,'' McCourty said. "It felt good. It has been since the beginning of August since I put my helmet on. It definitely hasn't been fun. Not being able to play is tough; that is what you get paid to do."

Whether McCourty plays on Sunday against the Colts remains to be seen, however.

"We're just taking it day by day right now,'' McCourty said. "We'll see how I feel in the morning and take it from there...In this profession you don't want to come back too soon, and you don't want to hold yourself either if you are able to go. So we'll see how it goes." 

Call to fans

Titans linebacker Brian Orakpo had a challenge for fans on Wednesday. He looked into the cameras to deliver his spiel.

 "A message to the fans: Ya'll come loud and ready,'' Orakpo said. "This is a brand new team with a lot of enthusiasm, hungry guys eager to win. Come ready and loud and give us a true home field advantage."

The Titans have played their first two games on the road this season. The Titans have lost seven straight games to the Colts, and 12 of the last 13.

"We have a tough task at hand,'' Orakpo said. "This is a great measuring stick on how this season can go."

Injury update

Running back Antonio Andrews also returned to practice on Wednesday. Andrews has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury. Tight end Delanie Walker (hand) practiced on a limited basis.

Linebacker Zach Brown (illness), defensive lineman Sammie Hill (knee), cornerback Cody Riggs (knee), guard Chance Warmack (knee) and defensive back Marqueston Huff (hamstring) all missed practice on Wednesday.
