The Titans released linebacker Zaviar Gooden (hamstring) from injured reserve Tuesday, 247Sports reports. Gooden believes he can still play this season despite being placed on injured reserve, so the Titans released him so he can try to hook on with another team.
Several Titans who were on the injury report are active for the game against Indianapolis. The list includes linebacker Zaviar Gooden (hamstring), nose tackle Sammie Lee Hill (foot), offensive tackle Byron Stingily (ankle) and linebacker Kamerion Wimbley (hamstring).
