To be honest, it’s going to be tough to beat the Chicago Bears this season with a healthy team. The Tennessee Titans have thirteen players right now sitting on their injury report. Four of which did not play at all yesterday in practice.
When you see the Chicago Bears, the one thing everyone notices right away is their defense. Well with the Titans it’s a little different. Okay it’s a lot different. In fact three of the Titans’ biggest linebackers are listed on the injury report. Patrick Bailey (Ribs), Colin McCarthy (Ankle) and Will Witherspoon (Hamstring) all list with injuries. Bailey was the only player not to play at all yesterday in practice. Both McCarthy and Witherspoon were limited.
Both Kenny Britt and Nate Washington are listed with knee injuries but both also participated in full practice. This would be a scary thought, to leave the game in the hands of Matt Hasselbeck and Kendall Wright. Not exactly something you want to do against the Bears.
Other players that did not practice included defensive back Tommie Campbell (Ankle), safety Michael Griffin (Hip), offensive lineman Leroy Harris (Knee), and tackle David Stewart (Knee).
Both quarterback Jake Locker (Shoulder) and tackle Michael Roos (Abdomen) were limited in practice. But offensive lineman Fernando Velasco (Concussion) and defensive end Kamerion Wimbley (Toe) both participated in a full practice.
Hopefully many of these players that are listed will in fact be able to play come Sunday afternoon, Titans fans would hate to see yet another blow out against a NFC team.
