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 Indianapolis Colts.

Three quick hits after today's practice:

Mettenberger finish

Zach Mettenberger will wrap up the season as the team's starter after the Titans ruled out quarterback Marcus Mariota for Sunday's game.

It will be the 10th career start for Mettenberger, and his fourth start this season.

"We're just trying to do everything we can to end the season the right way,'' Mettenberger said. "And that is our sole focus right now, to go up there and get a win."

On the season, Mettenberger has completed 96-of-153 passes (62.7%) for 897 yards, with four touchdowns and six interceptions.

Alex Tanney will be the No.2 quarterback behind Mettenberger.

Mettenberger said getting a win on Sunday "would make the offseason a whole lot better."

"Really, you don't have that bad taste in your mouth,'' Mettenberger said. "As tough as this season been, ending it the right way would be huge for this team."


Mularkey future**

Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey took over for Ken Whisenhunt after the seventh game of the year.

Mularkey was asked about his future again after practice. Mularkey said the team wants to end the season with a win, and that's what's most important right now.

"There is nothing I can do about it,'' Mularkey said about what happens at the end of the season. "Everything is out of my control. Again, it's about winning every week and it will be no different this week. We'll see what happens next week."

Injury Report

Receiver Kendall Wright (knee), tackle Taylor Lewan (concussion) and defensive lineman Taylor Lewan did not practice on Wednesday.

Lewan remains in the concussion protocol, Mularkey said.

Safety Michael Griffin (foot) and fullback Jalston Fowler (toe) were both limited in today's practice.
