NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans got Pro Bowl defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth and end Kyle Vanden Bosch back on the practice field Tuesday. The availability of Pro Bowl center Kevin Mawae against Baltimore depends on who is talking.
Titans on the mend

Albert Haynesworth, DT
Experience: 7th season
Kyle Vanden Bosch, DE
Experience: 8th season
During an interview on Sirius NFL Radio before practice Tuesday, Mawae was asked if he would play Saturday in the AFC divisional playoff game.
"No, I'm not going to play this week," Mawae said before trying to soften that answer. "It's still questionable. We're day-to-day, and hopefully things progress to where I'll be able to play next week. But again, we're day to day right now."
Told of Mawae's comment after a practice Mawae watched, Titans coach Jeff Fisher said he still is hoping the veteran can play.
"He's day to day, and (we're) evaluating him throughout the week," Fisher said.
Fisher promised an official injury report Wednesday.
Mawae was not available in the locker room after practice. Neither was Vanden Bosch. Haynesworth worked through about half the session.
"I'll be hopefully full practice tomorrow," said Haynesworth, with his sweat shirt soaked from his shoulders almost down to his stomach.
"I'm just happy I get to practice and knock some of the rust off in practice. By doing that, I feel I can almost be back to where I was before I got hurt."
