WR Harry Douglas Returns to Practice for Titans

Posted Nov 20, 2017

Titans receiver Harry Douglas returned to practice on Monday. Douglas, a 10-year veteran, is still on Injured Reserve, but the team will have an opportunity to activate him in the next three weeks.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Titans receiver Harry Douglas returned to the practice field on Monday, and he was pretty excited about it.

“I was a kid in the candy store today,” Douglas said. “I love this game. It was great to be back out there.”

In time, the Titans will have to decide where things go from here.

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 later in the season.

With six games left, beginning with Sunday’s game against the Colts, the Titans have started the process before a decision has to be made.

“You have three weeks,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. “He could be activated for this game. You give (the player) a chance to get acclimated back in to see where he is at physically. He has been working – he has been really diligent about the way he has come back from his injuries.

“Obviously we’d have to find a (roster) spot, somewhere. But we have a number of spots where special teams strictly come into play. So that will be a discussion as we move along.

“Harry has a lot of energy,” Mularkey continued. “It was good to see teammates welcome him back and have him out there throwing the ball around.”

Douglas has plenty of experience, having playing in 116 games in his career. He has 309 catches for 3,751 yards and 10 touchdowns.

He’s hoping he can help this season.

“It felt great being out there with the guys,” Douglas said. “I’ve put a lot of work in, so I feel blessed to be back out there. I thank God for that.

“But I don’t want to look ahead. I practiced today and felt good. But the best thing for me to do right now is to take it one day at a time.”
