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 Texans.

Three quick hits after today's practice…

Lowering the Boom

The more he carries the football, the more running back Antonio Andrews believes he can prove to coaches he belongs on the field.

"Even in college, everyone was like, 'You're a running back by committee.' I am used to being that, and being in a system like that,'' Andrews said.  "But at the end of the day I feel like I can be that No.1 guy, an every down back."

Andrews ran for 57 yards on 10 carries in Sunday's game against the Falcons.

On one play, he stiff-armed a defender, and then lowered his shoulder to knock another Falcons player off his feet. In the film room, coaches applauded him.

Andrews said he's a physical runner, and he wants to prove it.

"I run with aggression,'' he said. "I have a lot on my mind, a lot on my chest. Y'all see it when I run.

"You have to come with that mentality, show everybody that you're a dog…I am going to see what (the defense's) mindset is next week when they try and tackle me. I got a feeling they are going to be coming low. I might go lower."

McCourty's plan

Titans cornerback Jason McCourty left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, but he was back on the practice field on Wednesday on a limited basis.

McCourty said he's optimistic about playing against the Texans.

"I am a little sore today,'' McCourty said. "But my plan is to play in the game, so we'll see how it goes."
