Tennessee Titans tight end Craig Stevens practiced for the second consecutive day Friday but remains questionable for Sunday's game at Jacksonville.
Stevens hadn't practiced Monday or Wednesday after sustaining a mild hamstring injury Nov. 11 in a 37-3 victory over the Miami Dolphins.
The Titans (4-6) haven't played since the Dolphins game, and the bye week has given injured players time to heal.
Wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins (ankle), running back Jamie Harper (ankle), linebacker Xavier Adibi (knee) and tackle Byron Stingily (back) practiced Friday and also are questionable. Quarterback Jake Locker (shoulder), linebacker Colin McCarthy (ankle) and receiver Kenny Britt (knee) are probable.
Safety Al Afalava remains doubtful and hasn't practiced all week due to a high ankle sprain.

I only heavily bet on this trend when the road favorite deserves to be favorites, but here the Titans do. Using the yards per play...
If there’s one thing I enjoy in football, it’s divisional match ups. It has the ability to throw everything you know about stats, logic, and talent out the window and focus soley on playing the game. Take for instance the match up between the (4-6) Titans and the (1-8) Jaguars.
Last week, the Jaguars gave the AFC leading Houston Texans all they could handle and then some in an...
