--CB Andre Woolfolk (toe) has a chance to return to practice Wednesday, and if he does he may play as the nickel against New Orleans.
--RB Chris Brown
(hamstring) could be back to nearly full speed this week and could see his first
NFL action Sunday against New Orleans.
--DE Jevon Kearse seems to be on track
after missing most of last season with a foot injury. He applied good pressure
on Peyton Manning in Indy and now has a sack and a half.
--RG Benji Olson is
expected to miss at least a couple games with a right knee. His streak of 73
consecutive starts will end as Tom Ackerman plays in his place.
Ackerman was expecting to play center this season, but he lost that job when he
had minor knee surgery during camp and Justin Hartwig played well. Now Ackerman
will play RG while Benji Olson recovers from a knee sprain.
--TE Shad Meier
continues to play well in the absence of Frank Wycheck who is recovering from a

bug pass rush downs so the Titans could get their best four pass rushers on the
field together. But with Albert Haynesworth (elbow) out a few games Carter may
be asked to do more work inside.
--QB Steve McNair will still be dealing with
a sore left knee and a swollen and sore right ring finger when the Titans resume
practice on Wednesday. He could be limited during the week, but there is no
doubt he will play on Sunda
