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 Oakland Raiders.

Three quick hits after today's practice:

Receiver Kendall Wright put on pads and practiced for the first time during the regular season on Wednesday.

Wright missed all the preseason with a hamstring injury, and the first two games of the regular season.

"It felt good to be out there,'' Wright said. "We'll see how it goes. I am ready to get back out there (playing) finally. Today was a start. I feel like I am getting close. The main thing is getting back out there and getting ready to be out there."

Linebacker Derrick Morgan, who suffered a hamstring injury in Week One, also practiced.

Morgan missed Sunday's game against the Lions after suffering the injury against the Vikings.

"I know my body the best, and I know I have to be smart with it,'' Morgan said. "You can't overdo it too early. It is all about taking it day by day. I feel good and I am gradually easing myself back into things. I am feeling better every day, and each day I am progressing."

With Chance Warmack headed to Injured Reserve, Josh Kline and Brian Schwenke worked with the first team unit at right guard in practice on Wednesday, Titans coach Mike Mularkey said.

Kline, claimed off waivers earlier this month, has the experience. But Schwenke, the team's starting center last season before suffering an ankle injury, is also in the mix.

"I think because of Kline's experience at the position, I'm talking about in New England, it gives him a little bit more of an advantage," Mularkey said. "But we're going to weigh them all out really in the next three days of practice."

Kline (6-3, 300) played in 14 games for the Patriots last season, including 13 starts – seven at right guard and six at left guard. He also started at left guard for both of the team's playoff contests.

Originally signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2013, Kline has played in 33 games over the past three seasons, with 18 starts.

"I have a lot to learn, and I have to mesh with the guys still,'' Kline said. "There's some growing pains with it, and I just have to try and get better every day and learn from my mistakes."


In addition to Warmack, a number of other Titans didn't practice on Wednesday.

The group included tight end Delanie Walker (hamstring), cornerback Brice McCain (knee), and cornerback Valentino Blake (chest contusion).

Tight end Phillip Supernaw was limited with a low back strain.
