Gary Brackett was back at full participation in practice and Bob Sanders saw limited reps, but Hayden and Gonzalez remain sidelined and were joined by Charlie Johnson (knee) and Marlin Jackson (knee). Dwight Freeney got the day off leaving his health a mystery for now. Both Hayden and Marlin sitting is concerning. Hayden had hoped that last week would be the last he would need to miss for the hamstring issues he's had, but he stressed the importance of being back full time rather than bouncing between playing at partial speed and sitting out injured all year.
On the Titans side CB Nick Harper sat out, while Cortland Finnegan was limited. Both starting OLB Keith Bulluck and his backup Stanford Kegler were limited. Rotation DT Jason Jones missed practice as did backups Colin Allred and Vincent Fuller.
