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

On Sunday, the team will face the Dolphins.

Three quick hits after today’s practice…

Warmack vs Suh

Guard Chance Warmack said he’ll be back in the starting lineup on Sunday.

Warmack suffered a knee injury in the team’s September 20 contest at Cleveland, and missed games against the Colts and Bills.

Warmack and the Titans offensive linemen will face a big challenge in Dolphins defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh.

Warmack said he’ll be ready.

“It’s going to be a battle,’’ Warmack said. “He’s a physical player, and I’m a physical player. We’ll see what happens.”

Warmack was a full participant in practice after being limited in practices last week.

“From watching (Suh) when he was with the Lions,’’ Warmack said, “you can tell he knows how to move his body and put himself in a position to make plays. He’s a very intelligent football player. I have a lot of respect for Suh.”

Moody Linebacker

Like the rest of his teammates, linebacker Brian Orakpo is having a tough time dealing with the team’s 1-3 start.

Orakpo on Wednesday held up two fingers to describe how close the team is to turning things around.

“We are close to being in the discussion, wins and losses, of being a great team,’’ Orakpo said. “Right now our record doesn’t show it, but we have lost games we should have won.”

Orakpo said he’s doing his best to not let him ruin his mood away from the facility.

“I know it is hard,’’ he said. “You try to shake it off when you get home with the family.

“Me personally, I hate losing. (I’m a) grouch, in a bad mood. But wife will tell you, I’ve gotten a lot better. Before I used to always be in a rut and don’t want to eat and that kind of stuff. It has gotten better. It’s a work in progress.”

Injury update

Defensive tackle Sammie Hill (knee/illness), linebacker Avery Williamson (hamstring) and safety Michael Griffin (not injury related) did not practice on Wednesday.

Tight end Anthony Fasano (concussion), tackle Taylor Lewan (shoulder) and linebacker Deiontrez Mount (knee) were listed as limited participants in practice.

Cornerback Cody Riggs (knee) was a full participant.
