  • Titans' Teair Tart: Won't play Sunday

    Tart (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Tart returned from a groin injury last week against the Texans but is now sidelined by an ankle issue. He'll have the bye in Week 13 to aid in his recovery before missing any time beyond Sunday. Naquan Jones and Kyle Peko should split time at nose tackle for the Titans in his absence.

  • Titans' Teair Tart: Receives suspension notice

    Tart has been suspended one game for violating the NFL's unnecessary roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct rules, Michael Signora of NFL Communications reports.

    Tart will go without pay for one week after purposely stepping on an opponent during Sunday's 41-35 loss to the Browns. The 23-year-old defensive tackle has appeared in each of Tennessee's past five games, fielding an average of 21.2 defensive snaps per contest. Without Tart available Week 14 for a road trip to Jacksonville, depth along the interior will be depleted behind starting nose tackle DaQuan Jones.
