    The Titans won’t have an official injury report until Wednesday, but it looks like the bye week has been a boost for at least a few players.

    Defensive end Derrick Morgan, who missed the Titans’ last game against San Francisco, said he practiced fully on Monday and that his injured shoulder felt good.

    In addition, tackle David Stewart, who’s been hampered all year by leg and ankle injuries, said he’s planning on full practices for this entire week – something that hasn’t happened yet this season.

    Running back Shonn Greene, who had one carry against the 49ers, said the bye week gave his injured knee that much more time to recover. He says he’s now likely to return to practicing regularly.

    As for middle linebacker Moise Fokou, he said he did not practice Monday because of his injured knee. But Fokou, who missed the San Francisco game, said he doesn’t think he’s too far away from a return.

    “I feel good, but it’s still sort of day to day, week to week,” Fokou said. “They’re monitoring me and making sure I’m moving right and moving pain-free … I could be back out there this weekend or be back next week – it’s just up to the trainers and the coaching staff.”

    How long before Stewart is hurt again?

    He's like Crutches. Only difference is he actually gets out there on Sunday and plays decent ball.

    Glad to finally have Greene back. He has the vision to go along with the power that Battle has been lacking so far this season.

    Also glad to see Morgan back. Didn't even know he missed the San Fran game.


    Can't afford to drop any more we should win. Need to sweep Indy and shoot for winning the division.

    You need to stop that statement after the word "plays" as he has not been too good this year.

    I understand why one might prefer McCarthy, he was awesome his rookie year when he took over Barrett Ruud (hated that signing). But I think Fokou has looked better than McCarthy this year. Colin looks pretty weak against run support.
