Veteran wide receiver Marvin Harrison was able to take part in a full practice Thursday and may be available to see limited work for the Indianapolis Colts against Tennessee Sunday night.
Harrison has missed 10 of the Colts' last 11 games, including the last nine in a row, as he has been recovering from a left knee injury that he suffered against Denver on Sept. 30.
He last saw any meaningful playing time Oct. 22 at Jacksonville, but hadn't been able to go through a regular workout since the week before the Jaguars' game.
Indianapolis coach Tony Dungy remains hopeful that the former Pro Bowl receiver will be able to see some playing against the Titans Sunday night.

"We would like for Marvin to be able to go and get some playing time in," the Colts coach said. "That's our hope. We'll see if it materializes.
"If it doesn't, he's a guy that can play coming off a six or seven week period of inactivity. He knows our offense well enough and has enough work with Peyton (Manning) in the past. Ideally, we'd like to get him a few plays."
Offensive tackle Ryan Diem, who has sat out the last five games recovering from a knee injury and subsequent arthroscopic surgery, is not expected to play this week. Dungy had been holding out some hope that Diem would be able to play for a series or two this week.
"That would be ideal. I think that would be our best-case scenario. If it doesn't happen, because of how these two guys are and how much they've played (over the years), it's not as critical as maybe if it were (rookie) Anthony Gonzalez or someone like that. But in the best of all worlds, we would love to have them play a little bit," Dungy said.
