--QB Steve McNair has a swollen and sore right ring finger after dislocating it in Indianapolis. He could be limited in practice and also still has some leftover soreness from a left knee sprain suffered in Week One. That was part of why he had no rushing attempts for the first time in his career.
--DT Albert Haynesworth is definitely out of the New Orleans game though his
left elbow injury is not as bad as feared. Look for more of Kevin Carter at
tackle and more snaps for James Atkins. "He's going to deal with significant
pain and swelling and it's going to be difficult for him to play this week and
perhaps next," coach Jeff Fisher said.
--RG Benji Olson had an
MRI on his right knee revealed a third-degree MCL sprain but no ACL damage,
which the team initially feared. He could be out for a while and Tom Ackerman
will play in his spot.
--TE Frank Wycheck reported he is not
seeing much improvement from his most recent concussion. He is on the shelf
--Coach Jeff Fisher said rookie first-round pick
Andre Woolfolk "had a great workout in the stadium prior to the game and we
think he'll be back practicing this week."
--WR Derrick Mason
caught 10 passes for 98 yards in Indianapolis, becoming the first player in
franchise history to catch 10 or more balls in back to back games. He still had
two drops that hurt.
--WR Drew Bennett has yet to catch a pass
and Jeff Fisher indicated Justin McCareins may now rate ahead of him. But Fisher
said Bennett will continue to start.
--WR Tyrone Calico caught a
TD for the second game in a row. But Jeff Fisher joked about the 7-yard grab,
saying the Titans got Calico to score touchdowns from long range and that he
hopes the team will work its way back with Calico.
--OLB Peter Sirmon was credited with 18 tackles by the coaching staff after film review.
That's the most for a Titan or Oiler since Joe Bowden made 19 tackles in the
1998 season opener.
