There was some very good news from St. Thomas Sports Park this afternoon. Marcus Mariota returned to the practice field. He didn’t have his hand wrapped at all, and he wasn’t wearing “the glove.” This has to be a sign that he is going to play on Sunday night against the Colts.

You can watch some of his throws from the practice session here:

I haven’t seen an official designation on what he did in practice today. We will update this post with that when it becomes available.

The Titans also had Brian Orakpo back on the field for the first time in a couple of weeks. They might be back at full strength at outside linebacker for this game. That would give Dean Peas some options from a pass rush perspective. He could have Orakpo and/or Morgan lineup with their hand in the dirt on certain plays. This would help with the absence of Jurrell Casey.
