Injury update: Eric Decker twisted his ankle in practice today and did not finish the session. Mike Mularkey said he wanted to return and the injury isn't considered serious. Corey Davis is progressing well from his hamstring injury. He said told me today, "I can't wait to get back out there."

Cameron Wolfe ESPN 

Mike Mularkey has 16/1 odds, per Bovada, to win coach of the year this season. That's tied for 6th best in the NFL. He only trails Bill Belichick, Jack Del Rio, Mike McCarthy, Ron Rivera and Mike Tomlin.

Mike Mularkey said he anticipates DeMarco Murray playing Saturday vs Panthers but he will make a final decision closer to game day. Ron Rivera is undecided on whether Cam Newton will play. He didn't do much at practice today.

OVERHEAD: "Dive! Dive, Cassel! Score a TD man, c'mon," Taylor Lewan to Matt Cassel during and after the backup QB's scramble toward the end zone. Cassel ran out of bounds after gaining a few yards. Lewan wasn't satisfied.

Cam Newton has been mostly a cheerleader during Titans-Panthers joint practice. He did some individual drills, but has been spending most of team drills working to the side and cheering his teammates on.

OVERHEARD: "They got too many receivers for this (stuff) bro," gassed Panthers CB Captain Munnerlyn said after Taywan Taylor caught a deep ball on him during 1 on 1s. Shortly before that Harry Douglas caught this short pass on him.

Eric Decker just ran a great route, catch on 1 on 1 deep ball despite heavy holding by Captain Munnerlyn. The two talked a bit after. Titans WRs have had the advantage over Panthers DBs today. Taywan Taylor just beat Munnerlyn for a good deep catch too.

Titans-Panthers practice underway. 180 players on 2 fields. We'll see some scrimmage, 7-on-7, 1-on-1 drills together. Live contact, no tackling to the ground.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN 

Rainy morning in Nashville, but Titans-Panthers practice scheduled to kick off in a little over an hour. Both coaches want no fights but with joint practices intensity will be high so we'll see.

Play of the day: Harry Douglas with a sliding catch on a ball from Matt Cassel in the back of the end zone despite tight coverage from Adoree' Jackson. Douglas slammed the ball in celebration then talked a little trash to the DBs. Douglas has been coming on strong recently to defend his roster spot. Cassel also had a nice day.

Injury update: DeMarco Murray got a heavy load of reps in the Titans' padded indoor practice Monday. He didn't appear limited by that hamstring he hurt a couple of weeks ago. Jurrell Casey, Corey Davis among those who sat out practice today. Karl Klug (ankle) also returned.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN 

Titans sign long snapper Ryan DiSalvo and waive punter Jordan Gay. Long snapper Beau Brinkley injured his groin in Saturday's preseason game against NYJ and will miss some time.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN 

INJURY UPDATE: DeMarco Murray will practice this week and "do more than he did last week," per Mike Mularkey. DL Karl Klug (ankle) is expected to return for Titans-Panthers joint practices Wed and Thurs. LS Beau Brinkley is probably out this week with a groin strain.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN 

Titans HC Mike Mularkey said WR Corey Davis remains out with a hamstring injury. He's "progressing pretty well," but Mularkey still considers him "week to week." Davis said his main goal is to be back for Week 1. Mularkey hopes to get him back sooner than that.
