Tight end Craig Stevens was limited, but made his way back to the practice field for the Tennessee Titans Friday.
Stevens was in the training room after practice getting treatment on his injured ribs, and sent word through media relations to tell waiting reporters that he was feeling better and hoped to play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
At one point in practice, Stevens attempted to laugh a bit at a bobbled pass in practice, and then put his hand over his ribcage.
“It just soreness, so it's just going to be how much he can tolerate it on Sunday,” Titans coach Mike Munchak said.
Fullback Ahmard Hall, coming back from a four-game suspension, was excused from Friday's practice, but that apparently will not affect the Titans decision to activate him in time for Sunday's game.
Also, safety Michael Griffin was back after missing Thursday's practice with a virus. Griffin said he had lost nine pounds during the two-day ordeal.
Also, receiver Marc Mariani (hip) and linebacker Gerald McRath (knee) are both probable after going through a full practice Friday. Guard Leroy Harris (ankle) was added to the injury report, but practiced fully and is probable.
