Titans cornerback ready to return from knee injury

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) After missing three games with a sprained MCL in his right knee, cornerback Coty Sensabaugh appears ready to return for the Tennessee Titans.

Sensabaugh completed a full week of practice for the Titans on Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game at Baltimore.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Sensabaugh, who suffered the injury against the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 5, needed a full week of practice in order to have a chance to practice.

''That would be the only way he would have a chance to play, because it's been a while since he has played. That's one of the things that concerns you, because it's been a few weeks since he's played in a game,'' Whisenhunt said.

Sensabaugh was the Titans fifth defensive back coming into the season. Since he has been injured, Tennessee has used different players to fill his role with George Wilson and rookie Marqueston Huff getting most of the work. Sensabaugh wasn't saying how big or small his role might be on Sunday.

''A lot has changed since I got injured, but that's to be determined. But no matter what happens, we're going to pull for each other,'' Sensabaugh said.

After a month out counting the bye, Sensabaugh is ready to return.

''We had a good week of work. Now, it's just about taking it step-by-step these next couple of days and we'll see what happens Sunday,'' he said. ''I'm getting back in the groove. I would say the biggest challenge is the flow of the game. Once you get that back, as long as you stay in tune in the meetings with the communication and the calls and the checks, that part's easy. But just the flow and the movements and covering guys and all that good stuff.''

Wide receiver Nate Washington practiced fully with a shoulder injury and is questionable for Sunday, while defensive tackle Sammie Hill was listed as questionable and limited in practice with a hamstring injury. Hill was added to the injury report on Thursday as not practicing.
