NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth sat out practice Thursday, a day after he had his most extensive workout since injuring his right hamstring three weeks ago.
Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher said it was part of the plan for the six-year veteran's rehabilitation.
``He was fine. I would expect him to practice tomorrow,'' Fisher said.
The Titans have allowed their three worst rushing games this season in his absence, and have lost each game without him. If Haynesworth, who was injured on Nov. 4, is able to play Sunday against Houston (5-6), he won't be limited to a certain number of snaps.
``If he comes back and he can play, he's going to play a good portion of the ballgame,'' Fisher said.
Defensive tackle Tony Brown (left knee) did not practice for a second straight day, given a day off to rest the knee. Fisher said Brown would practice Friday. Safety Chris Hope (back) also sat out a second straight day and remains day to day.
Right guard Benji Olson (back) did not practice but he worked his way into some activities early. He has missed two straight games since waking up with a sore back in Denver.
``We're working him back. We're not pushing him back too quickly, and his exercises are working,'' Fisher said. ``He's feeling much better. We're not going to rush him back.''
