All is well for the Tennessee Titans top playmakers.
Both Kenny Britt and Chris Johnson returned to practice fully on Thursday.
Britt had cut short his Wednesday practice when his nagging right hamstring tightened up again, while Johnson had the entire practice off to rest his sore ribs.
“(Britt) was able to finish practice, he did a little bit more than yesterday. He looked good and I think he will be fine,” Coach Mike Munchak said. “Like we thought, he came back and did more today than he did yesterday, and I don’t see him being limited at all for this weekend.
“Chris (Johnson) is the same way. Chris was able to take reps at every period in the beginning of each period and ran hard which was good to see, especially in the run periods. I think his confidence will be good too for this game.”
Britt said he had a little bit of tightness remaining, and even had the hamstring stretched out in mid-practice but made it through. He is using a variety of treatments on the injury.
“It was more tightness than anything, but I don't think it will be any trouble for me going into the future or going into this game,” Britt said. “Actually I ran a couple of deep routes today, and it felt better. It was a little bit tight, but hopefully, we'll get these shots today and it'll loosen up.”
Britt indicated that the mid-practice stretch also helped.
“It was way better (after that). It was actually doing better with each route that I was running. That's one thing that I worry about was if it was going to get more tight as I run, and we'll have to calm it down. But it actually loosened up for me, so I was real happy about that,” he said.
In addition to Britt and Johnson, the Titans got a bit of a surprise when receiver Damian Williams, trying to make it back from a hamstring injury, was able to make it through a full practice Thursday.
“It felt good, the first day I was actually able to get out there. We didn't push it, so so far, so good. I've got a chance,” Williams said.
Added Munchak, “He did well. He got through practice and everything. He's coming along really good, better than I thought he would. Yesterday he went through about half of it, and today he did everything, so that looks real good for us.”
The only real question mark could be safety Chris Hope, who did scout team work only on Thursday. The Titans are more likely to start Jordan Babineaux again this week to allow Hope to rest another week.
“He was very limited today in what he did. He was out here with his pads on, but he didn’t do as much as I’m sure he hoped he would have done,” Munchak said. “Usually by (Friday) we will have a good feeling on that as far as where he is at, and the good thing is Jordan did a good job last week. So that’s a nice thing to know that you have someone that can play very well if that’s the way we have to go.”
