If injuries are a way of life in the NFL then consider the Tennessee Titans among the living. The Titans had nine players sit out practice Thursday at Baptist Sports Park.
Quarterback Jake Locker has already been ruled out with an injured shoulder and will not dress once again.
Cornerback Tommie Campbell and linebacker Patrick Bailey are still a week or two away with injuries.
Campbell has an ankle problem, while Bailey is dealing with a broken hand and broken ribs.
Michael Roos will likely miss the first game of his long career after having his appendix removed and Javon Ringer is still recovering from a knee injury.
The good news comes at linebacker where both Colin McCarthy (Ankle) and Will Witherspoon (Hamstring) sat out today, but are expected to play Sunday against the Colts.
McCarthy is arguably the Titans biggest playmaker on defense and has been described as vital in getting the defense lined up in the right places at the right times.
