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

On Sunday, the team will face the San Diego Chargers.

Three quick hits after today's practice:

McBride outlook

Receiver Tre McBride was called up to the team's 53-man roster on Tuesday.

Did he have an extra bounce in his step on the practice field Wednesday?

"I have been here before, so I am not going to act like I haven't,'' said McBride, a seventh-round pick by the Titans in 2015 who played in seven games last season. "I know that I can help right now and I know that I can play. So I am just going to have to wait for the opportunity and when it presents itself I am going to have to make something happen."

McBride, who caught a touchdown pass at the end of last season, was one of the stars of the offseason for the Titans. He led the team with 10 catches for 95 yards in the preseason. He didn't make the roster after camp, and spent the first eight weeks of the season on the team's practice squad.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey complimented McBride on Wednesday, but didn't reveal what it might mean as far as playing time on Sunday, or moving forward. Veteran receiver Harry Douglas has been inactive in recent weeks for the Titans. McBride filled the roster spot vacated by Andre Johnson, who retired on Monday.

"No one is making any promises as of right now,'' McBride said. "We are just going to keep the momentum the team has and ... I have not spoken in detail with any coaches about my role."

Krause practices

Former Vanderbilt receiver Jonathan Krause, signed to the practice squad on Tuesday, practiced with the team for the first time Wednesday.

Krause was originally signed by Cleveland as a rookie free agent out of Vanderbilt in 2014. He's spent time with the Patriots, Eagles, Buccaneers and Chargers. Krause was a member of the Patriots practice squad during the team's run to the Super Bowl in 2014

"I am thankful for the opportunity and I am just going to take it one day at a time and keep working hard," said Krause, who finished his college career at Vanderbilt with 98 receptions for 1,197 yards and five touchdowns.

"I just plan to come in and work my butt off. If you want to stay in the league, you have to do anything you can."

Injuries

Running back DeMarco Murray (toe) was limited in practice on Wednesday.

"He did a little bit, but we are going to be smart with him,'' Mularkey said of Murray, who is listed on the Injury Report with a foot injury. "I think it will be more and more (work) as the week goes on. … He was limited today and we'll see how it turns out tomorrow."

Cornerback Perrish Cox was on the practice field, but he remains in the concussion protocol. Safety Rashad Johnson (neck) and linebacker Kevin Dodd (foot) practiced on Wednesday. Linebacker Aaron Wallace (shoulder) was limited.

Guard Quinton Spain (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.
