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:

The Wright stuff

Titans receiver Kendall Wright had a game ball in his locker from Sunday's win over the Browns, one he earned with an eight-catch, 133-yard performance.

Wright caught a 48-yard touchdown in the contest, and he's been one of the biggest topics out of the game.

Wright wants to keep in going.

"I think I can, but I control what I can control,'' said Wright, who played just 22 snaps in the contest. "When I am in there, I try my best to do my job and do what I can to get open and be there for the quarterback.

"I just have to go out there and do my job and try and get my depths (on my routes) and execute."

Wright has 11 catches for 156 yards on the season. He missed the first three games of the season with a hamstring injury.

"If we can continue to find ways to get him the football in space, I think he is tough to tackle,'' quarterback Marcus Mariota said of Wright. "He is a very versatile player and he'll do a lot of good things for us."

"It was clean"

Coach Mike Mularkey reiterated he thought the block by Titans running back Antonio Andrews on Browns safety Jordan Poyer in Sunday's game was clean.

Poyer, who was on punt coverage against the Titans, was blasted by Andrews. The Titans were penalized 15 yards for a blindside hit, which resulted in Poyer being taken to the hospital. Poyer suffered a lacerated kidney and was placed on injured reserve.

"It was clean,'' Mularkey said.  "It was a bang-bang. I don't want to see anybody get hurt. Nobody wants to see anybody get hurt, but it's a violent game."

Andrews has received some criticism over posting a video of the hit on social media. Mularkey said he spoke to Andrews about it.

"He needs to just let his play speak for itself and stay off of social media with things like that. That doesn't do anybody any good, especially when a player's injured like that,'' Mularkey said. "I think we had a good talk, but that's really his right to be on there and say what he wants to say. Hopefully, it's over."

In the locker room after practice, Andrews was asked about the social media uproar.

"That play had nothing to do with him, that was just a play I made, that's all it was," Andrews said. "Sorry what happened to him, but it had nothing to do with him."

Injury update

Defensive lineman Al Woods returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time since suffering a calf injury on October 2. Woods isn't listed on the injury report, and Mularkey said he liked what he saw from Woods.

"He looked good,'' Mularkey said of Woods. "From watching him run around a little bit today, it was good to see. We probably need to see another couple of good days from him."
