NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Injured Titans players Derrick Morgan and Kendall Wright practiced for a second straight day Thursday.
Titans head coach Mike Mularkey sounded optimistic about both players after practice saying, “Derrick did better today than I was expecting, and I’m hoping we get a full speed Derrick tomorrow.”
Morgan has missed only one game since injuring his hamstring in the second half against Minnesota.
The story is not the same for Wright and clearly the coaching staff is frustrated.He missed the entire preseason and the first two games of the regular season.
Mularkey said he did “one-third” of the reps Wednesday and did half of them Thursday.
Wright’s play making ability is noticeably absent from the Titans attack and when asked about it offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie would only said, “I haven’t seen Kendall in so long, I don’t even know what skill set he got no more! You tell him I said so!”
The Titans have scored 16 points in each of the first two games, winning one and losing one.
On Sunday, they’ll host a Raiders team that boasts the No. one offense in the NFL, averaging 470 yards of offense a game.
The Titans will need Morgan to help slow it down and Wright to help the offense keep up on the scoreboard.
