KEYS TO THE GAME
Titans: Vanden Bosch missed another day of practice Thursday, and speculation is that he could be shut down in order to help his strained groin heal more fully. Vanden Bosch has been battling the injury since Oct. 5 and has either missed or not been able to play an entire game since that time. ... Bulluck missed a second straight day because of cracked rib cartilage. Bulluck has started 105 straight games for Tennessee and said he won't practice this week, but he has not been ruled out for the game with the Bears. ... Johnson has a full plate, according to offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger, and has been handling his running, receiving and blocking chores as well as any rookie could be expected to do. He leads the AFC with 715 yards rushing and 879 all-purpose yards. ... Collins has only three touchdown passes this season, but he has also just thrown three interceptions. Collins has not thrown an interception in the fourth quarter this season. ... WR Brandon Jones, plagued by inconsistency throughout much of Titans career, has stepped up of late with four receptions in each of the past two games. Jones made two spectacular catches against Green Bay and had some key receptions the week before against the Colts, helping him earn Collins' trust.
