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

On Sunday, the team will face the Colts in Indianapolis.

Three quick hits:

Matthews Update

Titans receiver Rishard Matthews did not practice on Friday after being listed with a hamstring injury following Thursday’s practice, when he was limited.

The Titans plan to list Matthews as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts.

“We wanted to give him a day to rest his hamstring,” coach Mike Mularkey said of Matthews. “We’ll know more tomorrow, and he’ll be a game-time decision.”

In the locker room after practice, Matthews said he feels good about his chances of playing. 

But there’s uncertainty surrounding the team’s leader in receiving yards (626).

“We’ll just see how it goes,” Matthews said. “I feel good, though. I think I’ll be fine.”

What about Douglas?

Titans receiver Harry Douglas returned to the practice field earlier this week, and the Titans have the option of promoting him to the active roster in time for Sunday’s game.

A 10-year veteran, Douglas was placed on Injured Reserve in September after the team trimmed its roster to 53 players. Because of the timing, it left the Titans with an opportunity to activate him.

The team would have to release a player to make room for Douglas on the 53-man roster.

Mularkey said the Titans haven’t made a decision on Douglas yet.

“We are still talking about Harry,” Mularkey said. “He has done well, and obviously he has been in the book. He is a trusted vet, and knows how to do things the right way. He came out here and didn’t miss a beat. It doesn’t look like he’s been off for 11 weeks.

“We have the option (of activating him)."

Douglas has plenty of experience, having playing in 116 games in his career.

He has 309 catches for 3,751 yards and 10 touchdowns.

“I feel like myself,” Douglas said. “I moved around good. … Patience is a virtue – that’s what The Bible says. Whatever they tell me.

“I feel like my body is good to go, and I had four great practices this week. Whatever goes from here, goes from here.”


Aside from Matthews, the Titans have a clean Injury Report for Sunday’s game. 

Everyone practiced on Friday, except for Matthews.
