Tennessee Titans Pre-game Notes: Indianapolis Colts

The Tennessee Titans have been slowly falling out of playoff contention, dropping to 4-8 after back-to-back losses against the Jaguars and Texans. After losing to the Colts, 19-13, in week eight, the Titans have a chance to get some revenge.

Injuries

Jake Locker will be behind center again, as he still has yet to find rhythm after coming back from the shoulder injury. He has thrown for 570 yards in the last two games, but has been intercepted five times with only two touchdown completions.

Linebacker Colin McCarthy will be out again this week with a concussion after going through limited practice this week.  Wide out Damian Williams will also be out with a hamstring injury.  The Titans then activated receiver Michael Preston from the practice squad to fill out the depth at the position.

Mike Otto will be starting in place of David Stewart, who will be out the rest of the year with a broken leg. The Titans have more issues on the line this week with guard Steve Hutchinson out with a knee problem, and tackle Michael Roos listed as questionable. Roos did participate in practice yesterday which looks promising, but if he is out it would be the first time in his career, and would break his 123 game start streak.

Key Factor

Chris Johnson has been held under 100 yards the last two weeks, which he will need to change if the Titans have any shot at winning.
