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 Jets.

Three quick hits after today's practice:

The last time the Titans faced quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick he was with Houston Texans.

It was last season, and Fitzpatrick threw for 358 yards and six touchdowns against the Titans as the Texans rolled.

Now, Fitzpatrick is with the Jets, and he's had a lot of success this season as well. Fitzpatrick has thrown for 2,866 yards and 22 touchdowns this season, with 11 interceptions.

"He is a serious competitor,'' cornerback Coty Sensabaugh of Fitzpatrick, who played with the Titans in 2013. "He loves to compete and he is going to go out swinging. He is going to run the ball this week and he probably won't slide, so we'll have to be ready to tackle him.

"He is a very smart quarterback so we have to make sure we are showing him something else than what we are playing to try and confuse him and hopefully get out hands on some balls to create turnovers."

Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey said he's been impressed with Fitzpatrick's decision-making this season. Fitzpatrick passed for 390 yards and two touchdowns last week against the Giants.

During Sunday's game against the Jaguars, cornerback B.W. Webb replaced Blidi Wreh-Wilson on the playing field when the Titans had three cornerbacks on the field.

On Wednesday, Mulurkey indicated Webb will be the third cornerback for Sunday's game against the Jets, behind Perrish Cox and Coty Sensabaugh.

"There may be another rotation, but right now (Webb) ended the game that way, and I think we'll start that way,'' Mularkey said.

Wreh-Wilson has been in a position to make plays in recent weeks, but he's given up some big plays instead.

"I think he needs to make a couple of plays and the more he makes the more confident he is going to be,'' Mularkey said of Wreh-Wilson. "There's lots he's doing good. It's just making some of those plays when he's in position to (make them). He is there. He is in a position to make those plays, he just needs to make some of them."

Injury Report

Running back Dexter McCluster (knee) returned to the practice field on Wednesday for the first time since suffering a knee injury on November 19 at Jacksonville.

Receiver Kendall Wright (ribs), linebacker Derrick Morgan (shoulder), and defensive lineman Sammie Hill (knee) and Mike Martin (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

Mularkey said Wright is "day to day."

Tight end Anthony Fasano (shoulder) was limited.
