Titans' DT Haynesworth practices for first time this week

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, whose leaping tackle at the 1-yard line last week helped beat the Atlanta Falcons, practiced Friday for the first time this week.

Haynesworth, bothered this week by an ankle injury, leapfrogged a Falcons offensive lineman to grab quarterback Byron Leftwich and force an 8-yard loss in the final minutes of a 20-13 victory.

However, he had not practiced Wednesday and Thursday, but Titans coach Jeff Fisher said Haynesworth should be able to play this Sunday in Tampa Bay after practicing Friday.

Meanwhile, wide receiver Brandon Jones missed practice with a sore right knee and Fisher termed him a game-time decision. Jones has not practiced at all this week.
