Three Quick Hits from Wednesday's Practice


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

On Sunday, the team will face the Bills.

Three quick hits after today's practice


Chance on health, and Bills DL Marcell Dareus**

Titans guard Chance Warmack (knee) practiced on Wednesday, but his status for Sunday's game against the Bills remains uncertain.

Warmack missed the Sept. 27 game against the Colts after first suffering the injury at Cleveland on September 20. Warmack said he plans to play in a knee brace when he returns. He did some extra conditioning work after practice.

"It feels better than last week,'' Warmack said. "I am just trying to get a good feel for how it is, and we'll see how it goes. I'm day by day."

If Warmack returns to action, he'll see former Alabama teammate Marcell Dareus on the other side of the line of scrimmage with the Bills. Dareus (6-3, 331) is part of an impressive defensive front in Buffalo.

Warmack credits Dareus for helping him with his development.

"He's a beast,'' Warmack said. "And he just got paid. He has good awareness, good strength.

"He taught me a lot in terms of what a defensive lineman is thinking and what they are trying to do. I used to ask him a lot of questions in college. He always had the tricks he would tell us."


Special tips**

Cornerback Jason McCourty has some special insight himself heading into Sunday's game against the Bills.

McCourty has quizzed his twin brother, Devin, about Buffalo's offensive weapons. Devin McCourty, of course, is a defensive back for the Patriots, who faced the Bills in Week 1.

"Whenever we play the same opponents, we always exchange notes and talk about different things they got from them and he saw and vice versa,'' McCourty said. "It definitely helps. I'll talk to him earlier in the week and try and confirm what he is saying. It kind of gives you a little bit of a head start."

McCourty, who has missed the first three games of the season with a groin injury, said he's ready to play.

"I am just itching to get back out there,'' he said. "This is what we get paid to do – to play football. So sitting on the sideline acting as a coach – that's not what you get paid to do. So to have the opportunity to get out there and make plays, I am looking forward to it."

Injury update

In addition to Warmack, defensive lineman Sammie Hill (knee), fullback Jalston Fowler (knee) and cornerback Cody Riggs (knee) all practiced on Wednesday in some capacity.

The Titans listed Warmack and Hill as limited on the team's injury report.

Linebacker Wesley Woodyard was excused from practice – his wife gave birth to a baby.
