Julio Jones made his way back onto the practice field for the Tennessee Titans during the open portion of practice on Wednesday after missing the past two games with a hamstring injury.
Jones, 32, re-aggravated the injury during the Titans' Sept. 26 victory against Indianapolis, and missed games against the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Given that the Titans have an extra day of practice before their Monday night showdown at home with the Buffalo Bills, it would seem to increase the chances that Jones could return and join A.J. Brown as a formidable one-two punch in the Titans passing game that has not been seen much this season.
Jones had 128 yards receiving in a week two win at Seattle. Brown has missed time with a hamstring injury as well, but returned in a limited capacity last week against the Jaguars.
In addition to Jones being back on the field during the open part of practice, the Titans designated starting safety Amani Hooker for return from injured reserve. Hooker has been out since week one with a foot injury, but Coach Mike Vrabel said that the Titans would practice Hooker this week and make a determination on Friday whether or not Hooker could be activated from injured reserve.
Players who were not on the practice field during the open portion of Wednesday's session included cornerbacks Kristian Fulton and Caleb Farley, linebackers Joe Jones and Monty Rice, guard Rodger Saffold and nose tackle Teair Tart.
Taylor Lewan and Derrick Henry only went through stretch during the open session, and did not partake in individual work on Wednesday.
