It is starting to sound like a broken record but the Tennessee Titans sure have had their work cut out for them during this 2012 season. The work doesn’t let up though with their schedule still full of division rivals in the last weeks of the season.
The Houston Texans are next on the Titans schedule and it couldn’t have come at any worse time. With a new offensive coordinator, the Texans are going to do everything they can with their powerhouse defense. The Titans also have a lengthy list of injuries to battle through by Sunday afternoon. Here is a look at who practiced this week for the team.
The only player that is currently ruled out officially is defensive captain linebacker Colin McCarthy. Safety Al Afalava (ankle), linebacker Patrick Bailey (ribs), running back Jamie Harper (ankle), wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins (ankle), defensive end Derrick Morgan (knee) and wide receiver Damian Williams (hamstring) are all listed as questionable.
Four players are listed on the injury report, but are listed as probable for this week’s game against the Texans. Linebacker Xavier Adibi (knee), wide receiver Kenny Britt (knee), quarterback Jake Locker (shoulder), and tight end Craig Stevens (hamstring).
The two injuries that really catch my eye are those of McCarthy and Stevens. These two players are extremely important to the Titans team and without them it could be really ugly against their AFC South Division rival.
Offensive lineman Steve Hutchinson did not practice on Thursday but it was non-injury related. More information on inactive players will be available prior to the game on Sunday.
