Three Quick Hits from Wednesday's Practice


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

On Sunday, the team will face the Raiders.

Three quick hits after today's practice:

Center of attention

Titans rookie center Andy Gallik admits he didn't have his best game last Thursday against the Jaguars.

He said it was hard to watch the film, knowing he could've done better.

Gallik worked with the first team at center on Wednesday, two days after Joe Looney worked with the first group in practice on Monday. Interim coach Mike Mularkey said rookie Quinton Spain worked for the second straight day as the team's starting left guard.

Gallik said he hasn't been told of the plan moving forward, but said the rotation this week has served as a bit of a wake-up call.

Gallik, a sixth round pick out of Boston College, has started four games this season since replacing Brian Schwenke.

"It was definitely a lot more motivation for me,'' Gallik said. "When I was in there at center, I felt like it was kind of my offensive line, and to have to take a little bit of a step back, it was nothing but motivating for me, definitely to work harder, study more. I see it as a motivation and kind of a message to pick up on certain areas I am lacking right now."

Wright stuff

Titans receiver Kendall Wright returned to the practice field on Wednesday for the first time since suffering a knee injury on November 1 in Houston.

Mularkey said Wright looked good.

"He looked much better than I was expecting, he really did,'' Mularkey said. "We still limited him to a specific number of plays, just to make sure we are not overusing him.

"It's good to have him back, and it was good to see him move around like he did. Hopefully he is feeling good in the morning after a night of rest, and he continues to progress like he is."

Injury Report

Running back Dexter McCluster (knee) and defensive lineman Al Woods (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday and neither is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Raiders.

Defensive lineman Sammie Hill (knee) also didn't practice on Wednesday.

In addition to Wright, linebacker Derrick Morgan (shoulder) was limited in today's practice, while cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson was a full participant.
