Limited practice a possibility for McCarthy

The Titans are hoping to at least see middle linebacker Colin McCarthy and wide receiver Kenny Britt back on the practice field this week. McCarthy has missed the last three games with an ankle injury and Britt missed Sunday’s game with a less severe ankle injury.

“I think McCarthy will be able to practice on Wednesday as far as at least going out and doing individual (drills) and see how his ankle responds to doing football stuff,” coach Mike Munchak said. “And then the same thing with Kenny, it’s kind of wait and see. But obviously we’re more optimistic this week he’ll have a shot. It’s just a matter of seeing how his ankle comes along once we start working out.”

The Titans worked Britt out Saturday with the outside chance he could play against the Texans. “He wasn’t ready to play,” Munchak said. “He’s playing the position that he has to do a lot more cutting and things like that high speed.”

The Titans face two games in 10 days: at Minnesota on Sunday and vs. Pittsburgh at LP Field on Oct. 11.

As for what Britt and McCarthy mean to the lineup, Munchak said: “They’re two of our best players. We need to have our guys back. It’s a big part. If we’re going to win these next two we’re talking about … we need both those guys back.”
