Help with Javascript innerHtml please

I have a Javascript that is looping through a table's rows.  One of table cells (TD) contains a date.   Here's a sample:

<td class="ms-cellstyle ms-vb2"><span class="ms-noWrap" title="10/30/2015">10/30/2015</span></td>

Open in new window


I have a variable named "col_date" which needs contain just the date (10/30/2015).

var col_date = row.cells[suspense_date_column].innerHTML;

Open in new window


Right now col_date contains the whole  
<span class="ms-noWrap" title="10/30/2015">10/30/2015</span>

Open in new window

.  How can I return just the date without the span tag?

Thanks

+1 for Tom`s solution

Question: the HTML of the cell looks like a SharePoint generated table (at least the class names do :-))

Why dont you use jQuery?

Alternative solution:
var col_date = row.cells[suspense_date_column].getElementsByTagName('span')[0].getAttribute("title"); 

Open in new window
