After missing the first game of his career Sunday, Titans left tackle Michael Roos was back on the practice field Wednesday.

That has to be a welcome site for head coach Mike Munchak with the Chicago Bears and their imposing pass rush headed to LP Field Sunday.

Roos missed last week after undergoing an appendectomy. Mike Otto filled in admirably against Dwight Freeney, one of the top pass rushers in the league.

The Bears are third in the NFL with 23 sacks this season and the man lining up across from Roos leads the way.

Defensive End Julius Peppers leads Chicago with 5.5 sacks this season and at 6-7 is one of the more imposing players in the league.

Four of the five starting offensive linemen are on the injury report as the Titans (3-5) prepare to host Chicago (6-1).

Left guard Steve Hutchinson is the only lineman not listed with center Fernando Velasco recovering from a concussion and right guard Leroy Harris and right tackle David Stewart both having hurt their right knees in last week's loss to Indianapolis.
