Despite having not practiced at any point this week, Cyprien evidently convinced the Titans in pregame warmups that his back injury wasn't too much of a hindrance. He'll likely be in store for a full load of snaps as the Titans aim to strengthen their playoff hopes. Cyprien is coming off a Week 14 performance against the Cardinals in which he turned in 10 tackles and his first sack of the season.
Cyprien (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
Cyprien failed to practice in any capacity this week, putting him in danger of missing his seventh game of the season. The previous six absences were due to a hamstring injury, but Cyprien had since returned to start at strong safety in the last six contests, racking up 37 tackles (28 solo) and a sack during that span.
It's unclear at this point if Cyprien is in danger of missing Week 15, as sitting out an early-week practice could simply be a precaution. The 27-year-old's availability for Sunday's game against the 49ers should become clearer after the Titans' practices on Thursday and Friday.
Cyprien produced 10 tackles (nine solo) and a sack in Sunday's 12-7 loss to Arizona.
Cyprien unleashed his best performance in a Tennessee uniform, tying his season high in tackles while recording his third career sack. The former Jacksonville safety's going to come up short of 100 tackles for the first time in his five-year career due to missed time, but Cyprien's 44 tackles in seven games actually put him on pace for 101 over 16 games.
Cyprien had his best game of the season in Thursday's loss to the Steelers with 10 tackles (six solo).
Cyprien recorded seven tackles (four solo) in Week 1 but subsequently missed the next six weeks with a hamstring injury. He was quiet in his first two weeks back but he appears to be fully recovered after Thursday's effective outing. The 27-year-old strong safety saw 67 defensive snaps (88.0 percent), which was the fourth highest total on the team.
