The Titans have signed Sean Spence to compete with Woodyard and Avery Williamson at the inside linebacker position, the team's official site reports. Spence is a special-teams standout who has also started 13 games over the past two seasons, making him a viable alternative should either of Tennesee's 2015 starters at the position struggle early in the new campaign. Woodyard should slot in ahead of Spence on the depth chart if he can stay healthy, but the veteran linebacker can't afford a dip in level at age 29.
Woodyard recorded nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. The 29-year-old linebacker has an impressive 28 combined tackles over the past three weeks.
Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard recorded 10 tackles (eight solo), a sack, a quarterback hit, and two tackles for loss in a losing effort against Miami on Sunday. Woodyard played very well, but sadly the same could not be said about most of his teammates on either side of the ball. He'll look to continue his personal strong play against the Falcons next week.
Titans cornerback Jason McCourty (groin) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Bengals. McCourty was listed as questionable on the team's final injury report, but he'll suit up. Running back Dexter McCluster (foot), quarterback Charlie Whitehurst (finger) and linebacker Wesley Woodyard (ankle) are also active after being listed as probable.
The Titans are quite healthy heading into their Week 3 game Sunday in Cincinnati. They have four players on their Friday injury report - and three are probable. The lone exception is cornerback Jason McCourty (groin), who is questionable. The probables are running back Dexter McCluster (foot), quarterback Charlie Whitehurst (finger) and linebacker Wesley Woodyard (ankle).
