Titans receiver Wright, safety Searcy probable vs. Texans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee wide receiver Kendall Wright and safety Da'Norris Searcy are probable to play against Houston on Sunday.

Rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota is the only player listed as out for the Titans' home finale.

Wright practiced fully Friday for a second straight day with two broken ribs that kept him out of the past two games for the Titans (3-11). Searcy (hamstring) missed last week's loss at New England and was limited Friday. So was wideout Harry Douglas (ankle) and tight end Delanie Walker (hamstring).

Nose tackle Sammie Hill (right knee) also is probable against Houston (7-7).

With Mariota out with his sprained right knee, Zach Mettenberger will start his third game this season and second against the Texans. Mularkey said Mettenberger had a good week of practice.

The Titans practiced inside on artificial turf.
