Johnathan Cyprien finally back at Titans practice

In addition to the return of Corey Davis to practice, the Tennessee Titans also got safety Johnathan Cyprien back on the practice field Monday after their bye week.

Cyprien, a free agent addition in the off-season from Jacksonville, has been out since the season opener with a hamstring injury, missing six games in that span.

“He did a good portion today, not a full (practice), very similar to Corey (Davis), very similar,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said in explaining Cyprien’s partial workload.

Cyprien’s spot has been filled by former starter Da’Norris Searcy with Curtis Riley back him up. Cyprien is expected to slide back into the starter’s role when healthy.

“We have depth at safety, that’s the beauty of it. I think all of our guys have played well. We’ll have a dilemma because one of them will have to sit if he is back and that one will have an impact on our special teams as well,” Mularkey said.

As for other injuries, tight end Delanie Walker sat out with an ankle injury sustained against the Browns. That injury is a bone bruise, and Walker was given an extra day to rest his ankle.

Guard Quinton Spain has turf toe on his right foot and was in a walking boot. His status for this week against the Baltimore Ravens does not appear good, which would open the door for Brian Schwenke to have to step in at left guard.

Also, running back DeMarco Murray, who is coming off a hamstring injury, was able to do some work on Monday.

Quarterback Marcus Mariota, who has played on a strained hamstring the past two games, could have more of his mobility back this week, according to Mularkey.
“I think Marcus (Mariota) is back to where we need him to be to play at the same level he did before the injury,” Mularkey said.
