    Three players – linebacker Colin McCarthy (ankle), safety Al Afalava (ankle) and linebacker Xavier Adibi (knee) – did not practice for the Titans on Wednesday.

    In past weeks, McCarthy has practiced on Wednesday and Friday, using Thursday to rest his ankle. But Titans coach Mike Munchak said the team will see if changing his schedule might help the healing process for McCarthy, who suffered his high-ankle sprain in the first week of the season.

    “We thought we’d rest him today, especially being inside on this turf,” Munchak said following the team’s indoor practice. “We’re trying to find different ways to help him get healthy … so you’ll see us try different combinations. He may just practice on a Friday or a Saturday. I don’t know if he’ll do a lot more tomorrow, but we’ll probably get him doing a lot more on Friday.”

    Munchak said he wasn’t sure about the status for Afalava or Adibi this week. Afalava said earlier in the week he’d likely miss a few weeks with a high-ankle sprain.

    As for other Titans on the injury report, linebacker Patrick Bailey (ribs) and cornerback Tommie Campbell (ankle) were limited.
