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

On Sunday, the team will face the Bills.

Three quick hits after today’s practice

Hunter progress

Justin Hunter has been quiet so far this season. The third-year receiver has just four catches for 74 yards combined in the first three games.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said he’s been pleased with Hunter’s progress, however.

“Sometimes in this game, you don’t really have to catch the ball to have an impact in what we are trying to do,’’ Whisenhunt said. “I have been very impressed with Justin in his progression. He is not there, but he is really showing some signs of progress, and that is good for us. Hopefully he’ll get an opportunity to make some of those plays via catches or production that way, but I like the way he is going about his business and you can see the confidence building with him.”

Hunter caught 18 passes for 354 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie. He caught 28 passes for 498 yards and three touchdowns last season.

Hunter, a second round pick in 2013, said, “I can only control what I can control, but I feel like I am practicing well.

“I’m getting there,’’ Hunter said. “I feel like we have a good group of receivers, we are all different. I just want to help any way I can.”

A Chance of playing?

Guard Chance Warmack practiced on a limited basis on Friday, and has made improvements since suffering a knee injury on September 20 at Cleveland.

His status for Sunday’s game against the Bills remains uncertain, however.

“Anybody will tell you in this game – you’re never going to be 100 percent,’’ Warmack said on Friday. “It is way better than it was a week ago. I am definitely happy the way things are going. I am just trying to stay positive and take it day by day.

“It is up to the coaches and trainers.”

Jamon Meredith started at right guard in place of Warmack against the Colts.

Injury report

Defensive lineman Sammie Hill did not practice Friday, and he’s been ruled out for Sunday’s game.

Cornerback Cody Riggs (knee) also missed practiced on Friday.

Cornerback Jason McCourty (groin) practiced and will return to action after missing the first three games of the season.
