The Facts: Tate, who missed the past two games with a knee injury, was back on the practice field today in preparation for the Titans.
Diehards Line: Tate, who suffered the knee injury on a long run in the opener in Pittsburgh, wore a brace on his right knee, but moved well in early offensive drills open to the public, and in agility drills with the other running backs. It was the Browns first practice after four days off for the bye week, which gave Tate time to heal. Running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery indicated last week that the fifth-year pro would be reinstalled as the starting tailback once healthy. If Tate is deemed ready to go Sunday in Tennessee, he might get the nod ahead of rookies Isaiah Crowell, who's averaging 5.2 yards per carry, and Terrance West, who's averaging 4.3 yards. Crowell has rushed for three touchdowns this season and West two.
