Wednesday's NFL injury and roster news for Week 1

The Titans' pass rush is getting two key defenders at practice together for the first time.

Coach Mike Vrabel told reporters defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and linebacker Vic Beasley will practice Wednesday.

The Titans signed Beasley back in free agency, but he missed 10 unexcused days of training camp, then landed on the non-football injury list. He was activated to the 53-man roster on Saturday. The team signed Clowney the next day to a one-year deal worth up to $15 million. Vrabel already plans to move the three-time Pro Bowler around to create mismatches.

The Titans open the season Monday night against the Denver Broncos.
