NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth took part in his first full practice since Nov. 30 on Thursday, and he couldn't have been happier.
``I've still got to knock some of this rust off. Playing helps, but I want to get back to playing the good technique where I was at before I left,'' Haynesworth said.
He originally strained his right hamstring Nov. 4 against Carolina late in a game where he had a career-high three sacks. He missed three games - all Titans' losses - and has started three of the last four in earning his first Pro Bowl trip.
Haynesworth said he would practice Friday, working on his technique using his hands and his get-off at the line of scrimmage.
``Hopefully by Sunday, I can be close to where I was before I left the field,'' Haynesworth said.
Center Kevin Mawae, who sat out last week's 10-6 win over the New York Jets with an injured left calf, missed another practice and was not on the field during the session.
Defensive end Antwan Odom (ankle), cornerback Nick Harper (groin) and linebacker Gilbert Gardner (calf) also did not practice.
But right guard Benji Olson, linebacker David Thornton (left knee) and running back LenDale White (knee) practiced after sitting out Wednesday.
