NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans just wrapped up practice on Monday at Saint Thomas Sports Park.
On Sunday, the team will face the Colts in Indianapolis.
Three quick hits:
Spain not happy
Titans guard Quinton Spain returned to action on Thursday night in Pittsburgh, and he wasn’t happy with his performance.
Spain, who missed the previous two games with a turf toe injury, gave credit to Steelers defensive lineman Cameron Heyward.
“I don’t make no excuses — he just got the best of me,” Spain said. “I just have to get better.
“The toe, I just have to play better and play through it. The first quarter (I played bad), but I felt like I got back into the groove.”
Spain knows the problem. He said his hand placement was bad, and Heyward took advantage of it on his sack of quarterback Marcus Mariota.
“This week I am working on my hand placement,” Spain said. “That was the first time somebody physically bulled me – he’s strong. Now I know that my size doesn’t mean everything – it’s about the technique. So I will focus on my technique.
“I feel like if we meet them again, I can do better than what I did on Thursday night.”
Facing the Colts
The Titans beat the Colts 36-22 back on October 16.
Now, the Titans will travel to Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Colts (3-7) have lost three of four games since leaving Nissan Stadium. They beat the Texans (20-14) and lost to the Jaguars (27-0), Bengals (24-23) and Steelers (20-17).
What’s different about the Colts a month later?
“There’s a couple changes personnel wise, not a whole lot different,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey. “Not a whole lot different than the past. They’re still playing at a high level, they’ve lost a couple of close games since we played them. Just a couple of personnel changes.”
The Titans aren’t required to put on an Injury Report for Monday’s practice.
On Monday, receiver Harry Douglas returned to practice. Douglas remains on Injured Reserve, but the team has the option of adding him to the 53-man within the next three weeks. When asked, Mularkey said the Titans aren’t currently considering letting linebacker Aaron Wallace, who’s also on IR, practice any time soon.
“Not yet,” Mularkey said. “In discussion.”
As for the health of the rest of the team, Mularkey said: “Pretty good, I think we are pretty good, pretty healthy. For this time of the year, I think we’re doing pretty well.”
