Tackle Stewart returns to Titans practice

Tennessee Titans tackle David Stewart practiced fully for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury last week, and will be questionable for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.

Stewart missed last Sunday’s game in San Francisco, and Leroy Harris, normally a center and guard, sliding out to Stewart’s right tackle spot.

Asked if he would play this week against Buffalo, Stewart said, “I guess so. We’ll see.”

Stewart said the hardest part is trying not to push things too much.

“You just don’t overdo it and get back in there. I’m good now,” Stewart said.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher said he was glad to see Stewart back on the practice field.

“He participated in practice today for the first time since last Friday, so it was good to see,” Fisher said.

Running back LenDale White returned to practice Friday after missing two days with illness. He is listed as probable after practicing fully.

Others on the injury report who practice fully include cornerbacks Cortland Finnegan (hamstring), who is listed as probable and Nick Harper (forearm), who is questionable.

Defensive end William Hayes (groin) was a full participant and is probable, while defensive end Jevon Kearse (knee) practiced fully and is questionable.

Linebacker David Thornton was again limited and is questionable. He missed last week with a hip injury, giving way to rookie Gerald McRath.

Tackle Mike Otto practiced fully and is questionable with a knee injury, while Javon Ringer also went through the full practice and is questionable with a back injury.

Receiver Justin Gage, suffering from transverse process bone fractures in his back, is out. Kenny Britt will start in his spot.
