Kenny Britt missed his third straight practice with an sprained left ankle on Friday, but both he and the Tennessee Titans are still hopeful he will be able to play at least some on Sunday against the Houston Texans.
“It's feeling better than yesterday, so that's a good sign. We've still got two more days till Sunday.” said Britt, who is listed as questionable on the Titans injury report.
Britt did most of his work Friday in the team's practice bubble to avoid the wet grounds of the practice field, thanks to a midday rain shower during practice.
“Yesterday, I couldn't push off at all, but today I got quite a bit of work done, and I'm happy about it,” Britt said. “If my ankle is healthy (I can play). I've been watching film and taking mental reps.”
The news is better on tight end Jared Cook, who practiced again on Friday. He will be questionable with a left shoulder injury, but barring a setback should play against Houston.
“He's done what you hoped he would do. He practiced yesterday on a limited basis and came out today feeling fine, and actually better than he was yesterday,” Titans coach Mike Munchak said. “He practiced more today, so we feel good about it going in, when it's not an ankle or a knee that affects a receiver or tight end like it does Kenny.”
Linebacker Colin McCarthy has been ruled out and will miss his third straight game.
