KEYS TO THE GAME
Titans: Kyle Vanden Bosch (groin) could be a game-day decision.
Titans: KR Chris Carr has not practiced yet this week because of a sore back. Carr, after a slow start, has become a weapon in terms of field position with a 29.6 kickoff-return average and a 10-yard punt-return average. Carr likely will go Sunday, but if he cannot, the Titans have several options including receivers Chris Davis, Brandon Jones or Lavelle Hawkins on punts and either Davis or Michael Griffin on kickoffs. ... LB Colin Allred, a special-teams player bothered by a strained groin, has begun doing activities on the side and running, but he might miss another week. ... Hawkins, after a rough battle to get on the field earlier in his rookie season, is beginning to gain the confidence of both the coaching staff and Collins. Hawkins made a nice sideline catch to move the chains against the Colts on Monday night and has improved his route running and playbook knowledge. ... QB Vince Young was not ruled out of doing some "Kordell Stewart slash" type plays, head coach Jeff Fisher said when asked by a reporter. Still, the Titans have done very little in even working on those types of things since Young returned as their second-string quarterback after injuring his knee in the season opener. He has gotten the second-teamer's share of the reps and run the scout team. ... RB Quinton Ganther, knocked out of the Monday night game with a concussion, was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He sat out Wednesday.
