NASHVILLE – The Titans returned to the practice field on Thursday at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park to continue preparations for Sunday's game vs the Denver Broncos at Nissan Stadium.

Titans OC Todd Downing said Tannehill, listed as limited on Wednesday's Injury Report, is champing at the bit to play.
On Thursday, the Titans listed Tannehill as a FULL participant in practice.
"You have been around him long enough to know it is killing him (to miss)," Downing said of Tannehill. "He is a fierce competitor. We all know how tough he is. He is doing everything possible to get back out there, and we are really appreciative to have a guy like that who is putting so much into it and it means so much to him."
