Receiver Justin Gage said he is able to catch the football and adjust with a splint on his right thumb.
Gage, who told TitanInsider last week that the thumb injury would likely linger into the regular season, returned to the practice field on Monday and was a full participant in the workout.
“It's tough. It's definitely another challenge, but as long as it keeps the finger in place and keeps everything good, I can adjust to it and make things happen,” Gage said.
Coach Jeff Fisher said all the Titans players who have been bothered by injuries have a chance to play in the preseason finale Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints.
Among those who sat out on Monday were guard Leroy Harris (ankle), linebacker Rennie Curran (hamstring), defensive end William Hayes (knee) and defensive end Jacob Ford (hamstring), as well as
linebacker David Thornton (hip/shoulder) and defensive tackle Tony Brown (knee), who both remain on the PUP list.
Brown said last week he would be activated from the PUP list and play Thursday night against the Saints. Coach Jeff Fisher indicated that Brown would likely play as well.
He also did not rule out Thornton, who was cutting and running behind the defense as the ball was snapped simulating his backpedal and cuts.
Two players who will not play are guard Mike Otto (knee) and defensive tackle Kareem Brown (shoulder).
Kareem Brown could need surgery to repair his shoulder, and according to a league source, the Titans are likely to discuss a potential injury settlement and/or rehab process with him on Tuesday.
TitanInsider: Any closer and you'd be in the huddle.
