Position Listing
Kris Durham
News
Tight end Taylor Thompson (knee) and cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson (concussion) are the lone injured players on the inactive list released Sunday by the Titans for their game against Cleveland.

The healthy scratches are quarterback Zach Mettenberger, wide receiver Kris Durham, linebacker James Anderson, defensive tackle DaQuan Jones and tackle Byron Stingily.

Jurrell Casey
News
The Titans listed nine players on the final injury report leading up to Week 6 against Jacksonville. offensive tackle Michael Roos (knee) and tight end Craig Stevens (quad) were officially ruled out, while running back Shonn Greene (hamstring) has been ruled doubtful for Sunday.

Tight end Delanie Walker (shoulder) and defensive tackle Jurrell Casey (foot) were the only players listed probable against the Jaguars.

Charlie Whitehurst
News
What was suspected is now official: Zach Mettenberger is set to start at quarterback for the Titans against Houston on Sunday. Jake Locker will serve as his backup.

That news was announced Thursday by Ken Whisenhunt. Locker had been dealing with a thumb injury and Whisenhunt had previously claimed he would regain the starting position when healthy. But his apparent availability to play against the Texans could mean that Mettenberger has overtaken him.

Also in the mix had been veteran Charlie Whitehurst, who started in Locker's absence and completed 60.2 percent of his passes with five touchdowns and two interceptions.

Mettenberger played briefly in Week 4 at Indianapolis and connected on two of five attempts for 17 yards while throwing an interception.

Jake Locker
News
Ken Whisenhunt has admitted that deposed Titans starting quarterback Jake Locker is unhappy about losing his job to rookie Zach Mettenberger.

News
Fifth-round pick Avery Williamson has cut into the snaps of veteran inside linebacker Zaviar Gooden for the Titans, The Tennessean has reported.

The rookie did not play on defense until Week 3, but he made four tackles in 13 snaps against Cincinnati. He was on the field for 26 snaps last week against Indianapolis and made nine tackles. He has been playing with the first team this week in practice.

"(Williams is) doing a nice job," Ken Whisenhunt said. "He has to learn his assignments ... and he has to be able to execute them consistently. It's a process that all your young players go through. Everyone wants to throw young players out there, but sometimes they're not ready yet."

Wesley Woodyard
News
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.

Josh Stewart
Injury
Brian Schwenke
News
Guard Andy Levitre (hip), linebacker Akeem Ayers (knee) and center Brian Schwenke (ankle) will not participate in next week's OTAs as they recover from surgical procedures, reports ESPN.com.
Nate Washington
News
Titans wide receiver Nate Washington has drawn some trade interest recently and could be on the trade block, NFL.com reports.

Washington recently lost his starting job to Justin Hunter and is making $4.8 million in the final year of a six-year contract signed in March 2009. He has tallied 13 receptions for 169 yards in seven games.

Kendall Wright
News
The good news for Titans wide receivers Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter in Week 8 is that they're facing the Texans, who rank 26th against the pass, allowing 268.7 yards per game, and have given up the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers. The bad news for Wright and Hunter is that they'll be working with a rookie quarterback who'll be making his first NFL start.

Zach Mettenberger was only a sixth-round pick, but he's getting the start even though Jake Locker is set to return from a two-week absence for a thumb injury. Having Locker under center would have been a best-case scenario for Wright and Hunter. As it is, you shouldn't expect them to contribute much more than they did with Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback for most of the last three games.

Wright is probably the safer bet of the two because he's more of an underneath route runner. What he lacks in yardage he makes up for in catches, and unlike some players with a similar role, the Titans don't shy away from him in the red zone. Hunter, as more of a downfield threat, may have a harder time connecting with Mettenberger, so you'll want to sit him for now.

Dontay Moch
News
The Bengals made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

The Bengals also cut the following offensive players: tackles Dan France and Will Svitek, wide receivers Colin Lockett and Cobi Hamilton, center Trevor Robinson and running backs James Wilder and Nikita Whitlock.

Defenders waived by the Bengals include safety Danieal Manning, cornerbacks Onterio McCalebb and Victor Hampton, tackles Devon Still and David King and ends Sam Montgomery and Dontay Moch.

Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris will begin serving a two-game drug suspension handed dowsn by the league.

Michael Roos
News
As anticipated, the Titans have placed starting offensive tackle Michael Roos on season-ending injured reserve. He is scheduled for knee surgery. Roos had only missed one game since joining the team in 2005.
Injury
Blidi Wreh-Wilson
News
The Titans listed nine players on the final injury report leading up to Week 6 against Jacksonville. offensive tackle Michael Roos (knee) and tight end Craig Stevens (quad) were officially ruled out, while running back Shonn Greene (hamstring) has been ruled doubtful for Sunday.

Deemed questionable were cornerback Coty Sensabaugh (knee), tight end Taylor Thompson (knee), cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson (concussion) and quarterback Jake Locker (right thumb).

Tight end Delanie Walker (shoulder) and defensive tackle Jurrell Casey (foot) were the only players listed probable against the Jaguars.

Injury

Shaun Phillips

Bernard Pollard
News
Titans safety Bernard Pollard was given a 6-8 month timetable for his recovery after undergoing surgery in early October for a ruptured Achilles. Though, Pollard expects a shorter timetable, per The Tennessean.

"Like I've told them, it's not going to take me six-to-eight. It's really not," Pollard said Tuesday. "More like two-to-three (months) … I want to be back. I want to be smart about coming back as well. I throw numbers out there or whatever, but it's going to be quick."

Injury
Achilles - IR. Out for season
Justin Hunter
News
Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter had his worst performance of the season during a 19-17 loss Week 7 at Washington. Hunter, who was targeted twice, was held to one catch for 6 yards -- both season lows.

Hunter's previous low this season was a one-catch, 12-yard performance Week 4 against the Colts. He has just one touchdown and no 100-yard games in seven appearances.

The Titans are back in action Week 8 vs. Houston.

Sammie Lee Hill
News
Titans defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill has been given the green light for Sunday at Indianapolis with a back injury that had him designated as questionable. 
Ropati Pitoitua
News

Jason McCourty
News
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.

Colin McCarthy
News
Titans linebacker Colin McCarthy was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. McCarthy underwent shoulder surgery earlier in August, so the assignment isn't a surprise.
Injury
Michael Oher
News
The Titans might not start rookie offensive tackle Taylor Lewan until 2015, reports the Tennessean. But that all depends on the status of current left tackle Michael Roos, reports TitansInsider.com.

The Tennessean reports that Lewan will likely be the top reserve behind Roos and right tackle Michael Oher. It adds that "more than likely, Lewan is going to be a backup in 2014."

But TitansInsider.com reports that with Lewan in the fold, there is talk the Titans might move Roos. He is set to make $6.625 million this year and was paid a $1 million roster bonus last month.

The report adds that moving on from Roos would not cost the Titans anything cap wise since he is in the last year of his deal. But talk of the move is just speculation for now.

Brandon Harris
News
Titans wide receiver Kris Durham, cornerback Brandon Harris, linebacker Akeem Ayers, tackle Byron Stingily, tight end Taylor Thompson and defensive end Ropati Pitoitua were all ruled inactive Week 4 at Indianapolis.
Richard Gordon
News
The Titans announced Wednesday they signed tight end Richard Gordon. The 2011 sixth-round pick has played for the Raiders, Chiefs and Steelers, totaling four catches for 14 yards and one touchdown in 29 career games.
Andy Levitre
News
Guard Andy Levitre (hip), linebacker Akeem Ayers (knee) and center Brian Schwenke (ankle) will not participate in next week's OTAs as they recover from surgical procedures, reports ESPN.com.
Delanie Walker
News
In Weeks 1-4, with Jake Locker primarily under center for the Titans, tight end Delanie Walker averaged 5.5 catches for 79.3 yards with three touchdowns. But the more backup Charlie Whitehurst saw of him, the less he liked. Whitehurst did fine with Walker in Week 4, but in Weeks 5-7, Walker averaged just 3.0 catches for 40.3 yards.

So if you own Walker in Fantasy, you can only be encouraged by the Titans' change at quarterback for Week 8 against Houston, even if it's not the one you wanted. Locker is healthy again, but rookie Zach Mettenberger will get the start.

Granted, such an inexperienced and unheralded quarterback generally isn't good for anyone on the receiving end, but that's not always true for a tight end, who often becomes a security blanket underneath. Of course, despite ranking 26th against the pass, the Texans have allowed the sixth-fewest Fantasy points per game to tight ends, so that may not be the case for Walker in this one.

It's a coin flip whether or not you start him in Week 8. Tight end isn't the deepest position, and most likely, you won't want to roster two. For what it's worth, though, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Walker outside of their top 12 for this week.

Karl Klug
News
Several Titans listed on the injury report are active for their game vs. Arizona, including linebacker Akeem Ayers and cornerback Alterraun Verner, who were questionable with groin injuries.

Defensive end Karl Klug (back), guard Andy Levitre (hip), center Brian Schwenke (ankle), offensive tackle David Stewart (shoulder) and running back Leon Washington (ankle) all will play after being listed as probable.

Justin Staples
News
The Browns signed tight end Gerrell Robinson off Denver's practice squad and added receiver Ifeanyi Momah to their practice squad. Cleveland cut linebacker Justin Staples from the squad.
Ryan Succop
News
Titans kicker Ryan Succop finished with five points during a 19-17 loss Week 7 at Washington. Succop made a 36-yard field goal in the first quarter and two extra points.

He's now managed five or less points in all but two of seven games this season. The Titans are back in action Week 8 vs. Houston.

Daimion Stafford
News
Four of the Titans' last five picks in the NFL draft were on the defensive side of the ball. The team took Mizzou linebacker Zaviar Gooden, LSU defensive end Lavar Edwards, Nevada cornerback Kahlid Wooten and Nebraska safety Daimion Stafford.
Dexter McCluster
News
Titans running back Shonn Greene was unable to practice Friday and was officially deemed doubtful for Sunday's clash against the Jaguars, the Tennessean reports.

Green has not been able to get back on the practice field since he was a limited participant Wednesday. It doesn't appear his hamstring injury will heal fast enough for Week 6, so the Titans will likely turn to rookie Bishop Sankey for the start. Dexter McCluster could also see a healthy dose of work in Greene's absence. 

Derrick Morgan
News
The Titans' Derrick Morgan is moving from defensive end to outside linebacker in Tennessee's new 3-4 scheme. He told TitanInsider.com that he played some linebacker at Georgia Tech, so the transition won't be that difficult.

"My first position playing football was at linebacker, but it's been awhile. It's not too different. It's not too foreign for me to stand up and play out of a two-point stance. I've just got to continue to work at it," Morgan said. "I moved around a lot, especially my junior year, all over the field, linebacker, blitzing and stuff like that. I've definitely done it before."

Morgan has 16.5 sacks in four years and will be counted on to provide a big pass rush this season.

"I feel like I can rush the passer. That's what I was brought in to do. I feel like I can cover if need be," he said. "I'm still playing in the NFL. This is a great job. This is a change-up, but something I'm definitely going to embrace and work hard at."

Titans free safety Michael Griffin has issued a challenge to his defense: It's put-up and shut-up time.

Griffin will Sunday against Jacksonville no longer be playing aside fellow safety and vocal leader Bernard Pollard, who is out for the season with an Achilles injury. He is trying to take that leadership role and run with it with a different approach.

"Right now, we have to stop all the talking, and start doing," Griffin told The Tennesseean. "We need less talking and more playing, and that is nothing against Bernard. He was our vocal leader, a guy who gets us riled up. But with a four-game losing streak, we need to focus and start playing. We put ourselves in a hole and we have to get out."

The Titans rank 15th in the AFC in points allowed at 27.8 per game.

Zaviar Gooden
News
Fifth-round pick Avery Williamson has cut into the snaps of veteran inside linebacker Zaviar Gooden for the Titans, The Tennessean has reported.

The rookie did not play on defense until Week 3, but he made four tackles in 13 snaps against Cincinnati. He was on the field for 26 snaps last week against Indianapolis and made nine tackles. He has been playing with the first team this week in practice.

"(Williams is) doing a nice job," Ken Whisenhunt said. "He has to learn his assignments ... and he has to be able to execute them consistently. It's a process that all your young players go through. Everyone wants to throw young players out there, but sometimes they're not ready yet."

Byron Stingily
