Three Quick Hits from Thursday's Practice

Posted Nov 30, 2017

TitansOnline.com Senior Writer and Editor Jim Wyatt offers three quick hits from Thursday's practice at Saint Thomas Sports Park.

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

On Sunday, the team will face the Houston Texans at Nissan Stadium.

Three quick hits:

Matthews update

Titans receiver Rishard Matthews missed Sunday’s game against the Colts, and his status for this week’s game is in question.

Matthews, who leads the team with 626 receiving yards, missed practice again on Thursday.

Matthews hasn’t practiced since suffering the hamstring injury last Thursday.

“I think he is better, but obviously not well enough to practice today,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said of Matthews. “It is a day-to-day thing with him.”

Corey Davis and Eric Decker started at receiver for the Titans against the Colts.

Robiskie’s pep talk?

Following the team’s win on Sunday in Indianapolis, several players brought up offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie’s fiery talk at halftime, and said it was a source of motivation.

The Titans trailed 13-6 at the half, and eventually fell behind 16-6 before rallying for a victory by outscoring the Colts 14-0 down the stretch in a 20-16 win.

Robiskie, speaking to the media for the first time since the game, was asked about it on Thursday.

“That was just me being me,” Robiskie said with a smile. “My voice just goes up. It got a little louder that day.”

Robiskie said the Titans are in a good position right now.

“But if I have to go in and pep them every week, it is a rough business, it is going to be a rough day,” Robiskie said. “Something hit me (on Sunday), and I had to say what I had to say, and sometimes it happens.”

Injury Update

In addition to Matthews, running back DeMarco Murray did not practice on Thursday.

Murray is dealing with an illness, but Mularkey indicated he expects him back for the weekend.

Safety Da’Norris Searcy (ankle), linebacker Brian Orakpo (shoulder) and offensive lineman Brian Schwenke (illness) all returned to practice on Thursday after missing on Wednesday.
