Jacob Ford's return to the practice field comes at a good time for the Tennessee Titans.
Ford was a full participant for the second consecutive day after missing two games with a sprained MCL in his right knee. Ford was sporting a knee brace, but otherwise, showing no ill effects of the injury suffered against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Titans need Ford's presence in the defensive line rotation even more with rookie first-round pick Derrick Morgan lost for the season with a torn ACL in his left knee.
“It feels pretty good to be back outside practicing with my teammates,” Ford said. “It's good to be back, but I hate that we're down in terms of numbers. I'm needed, so I'll be ready regardless.”
Ford was the only player on the Titans injury report from Wednesday that practiced on Thursday.
Justin Gage sat out again with a left hamstring injury, and Sen'Derrick Marks was again out with a right knee sprain.
